The militants of the Al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist group Jabhat al-Nusra (also known as al-Nusra Front) are preparing provocations in Syria, including fake footage of the evacuation of civilians by militants and the restoration of buildings, said to be destroyed by Russian and Syrian air strikes, the Russian reconciliation center in Syria reported.
“Russian reconciliation center in Syria received information about the upcoming provocation of Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists by telephone from the residents of the province of Idlib. According to the Syrians, who spoke to the center’s officers, last Friday a film crew of a news agency of one of the Middle Eastern countries came to the province. This group together with the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists made fake shootings about the evacuation of civilians to the Alhelal al-Ahmar hospital and the active “restoration” of terrorists of civilian infrastructure allegedly destroyed by Russian and Syrian air strikes,” the center’s statement says.
As the Russian reconciliation center specified, the film crew used for their footage residential buildings, destroyed during clashes between different militant groups in the area.
