Terror-Bombing Syrian Airbase Follows False Flag CW Incident
by Stephen Lendman
In the wake of accusing Syria of using CWs in Douma, Russia’s Foreign Ministry called the allegation “fake news,” the latest “fabricated information,” adding:
“The goal of these false speculations, which are not substantiated by any facts, is to cover up terrorists and irreconcilable radical opposition, which opposes political settlement, and to simultaneously try to justify potential external military strikes.”
“It is necessary to once again caution that military intervention under false and fabricated pretexts in Syria, where the Russian servicemen stay at the request of the legitimate government, is absolutely unacceptable and may trigger the gravest consequences.”
Head of Russia’s reconciliation center in Syria Gen. Yuri Yevtushenko also refuted reports of CWs used in Douma, calling them fake news.
According to Syrian Arab Red Crescent Dr. Seif Aldin Hobia and other organization medical staff, no evidence suggests use of CWs in Douma. Reports suggesting otherwise are false.
Overnight Monday, Syria’s Homs province T-4 airbase was terror-bombed. According to AMN news, “(a) large number of Syrian military personnel were killed or wounded this morning after several missiles struck the” base, citing a Syrian army source.
The attack was likely either carried out by the Pentagon or Israel. Syria’s army source believes the latter, AMN saying “20 missiles were fired from the Lebanese border.” The IDF launched earlier attacks on Syria from Lebanese airspace.
At least 8 incoming missiles were intercepted and destroyed overnight. Israel almost never admits responsibility for these type attacks.
Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen televsion said (US-supported) ISIS terrorists attacked Sebaa-Bair in Homs province following the T-4 airbase terror-bombing – their fighters repelled.
Al-Mayadeen reported an Israeli reconnaissance plane overflying Syria’s T-4 airbase when the attack occurred.
Missiles also may have been fired from the Mediterranean Sea through Lebanese airspace toward their target – by US and/or Israeli warships.
The false flag Douma incident is the latest example of escalating conflict in Syria. Washington, Israel and their rogue allies reject diplomatic resolution.
Incidents like Douma suggest more of the same coming, anti-Syria hysteria fueled by inflammatory Trump tweets, similar neocon remarks, and Western media reports, backing the official narrative.
On Monday, John Bolton succeeds HR McMaster as Trump’s national security advisor.
On February 7, he tweeted: “It should surprise no one that the Syrian government continues to develop new chemical weapons.”
“(Assad) has a record of killing (his) own people and the international community hasn’t done enough to deter this continuing behavior” – a bald-faced lie.
It doesn’t matter. With him as perhaps Trump’s most trusted geopolitical advisor, a lunatic fringe extremist, the worst ahead is likely in Syria and elsewhere.
