Editor’s Note: While just about anything in today’s malleable electronic world can be manipulated, and should be viewed through an appropriate lens of skepticism, with all the previous information we have shared on this site about the creation of yet another “rebel” staged chemical attack in Idlib, this footage appears to be another example of that reality. Yet, as always, view the video below and come to your own conclusions.
On Sept. 14, 2018, the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) announced that it had hacked a mobile phone of a White Helmets “activist.” He is alleged to be involved in staging a chemical provocation in Idlib Governorate.
The video published in SEA Facebook community initially demonstrates what they claim to be the conversation between the White Helmets representatives Abu Maaz and Abu Manzar discussing the details of the upcoming provocation. Further, we can see the scenes of covert videotaping. The video contains the alleged training of the locals on how to imitate chemical weapons poisoning.
According to SEA, the representatives of the Civil Defence alongside Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) jihadists keep shooting staged videos in Idlib Province to spread them in social networks and mainstream media on command of their sponsors. Thus, the West will try to blame Assad for using chemical weapons against his nation.
