“Russia believes the US is planning a wide attack on Damascus under the pretext of an alleged gas attack in Idlib Province.”
In the context of this background, the smuggling of poison gases by jihadis takes n a very sinister aspect – that those gases are to be used to commit an atrocity that will then be blamed on the Syrian government in order to justify a US-Israeli strike on Damascus. Ian]
The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party transported chemical weapons to the Jisr Al-Shughour countryside, the Sputnik News Agency reported.
Citing informed sources, the Sputnik report claimed that the jihadist rebels transported “chlorine and sarin gases” from the town of Ma’arat Masrin to the Jisr Al-Shughour in western Idlib.
The report did not state how the sources came across this information; however, similar allegations have been made over the last few months.
The Syrian Arab Army does have many spies currently operating inside the Idlib Governorate, as they often post videos behind enemy lines via social media.
Furthermore, the Syrian Army is believed to have many operatives currently embedded inside the command centers for the jihadist rebels; this was revealed during the East Ghouta operation.
