ISIS Seizes CWs Supplied to Al-Nusra Terrorist Group

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

According to General Vladimir Savchenko, head of Russia’s reconciliation center in Syria:

On October 9, ISIS elements “attacked the headquarters of the Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham terrorist organization (former Jabhat al-Nusra, outlawed in Russia), located near the village of al-Lataminah,” adding:

“In the fight, four militants and two members of the White Helmets organization were killed. Two cylinders containing (toxic) chlorine (gas) were taken out of the headquarters.” 

“The seized cylinders were transported to the south of Aleppo province and handed over to terrorists of the Hurras al-Din terrorist group associated with the Islamic State.”

Savchenko slammed (US-led) Western countries for what happened, using ISIS and other terrorist groups as imperial proxies against Syria.

CWs in the hands of ISIS, al-Nusra, and other US-supported jihadists isn’t accidental. 

For weeks, one or more false flag CW attacks were planned in Idlib province – to be wrongfully blamed on Assad, a pretext for unjustifiably justifying US-led terror-bombing of Syrian sites.

Russia and Turkey agreeing on an Idlib demilitarized zone delayed the false flag(s). They’re likely coming at a time of the Trump regime’s choosing, wanting ongoing war continued and escalated, not diplomatically resolved.

Last month, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova explained the Western plot – at the time saying deadly sarin was transported to terrorists and their White Helmets allies in Idlib.

Weeks earlier, scores of women and children were abducted to used as props for the planned CW incident(s). 

In late August, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem accused US/UK-supported White Helmets of kidnapping 44 children to be used as “props” in planned Idlib CW attacks.

In September, neocon extremist Nikki Haley turned truth on its head, saying whenever CW are used in Syria, “we know exactly who is” responsible, referring to Syrian forces. 

No evidence suggests they ever used them throughout years of war. Indisputable evidence proves US-supported ISIS, al-Nusra, other terrorist groups, and White Helmets were responsible for using them numerous times.

Longstanding bipartisan supported US plans call for regime change in Syria and all other sovereign independent countries.

That’s what endless US wars of aggression are all about – unexplained by Western media, supporting what demands exposure and condemnation.
