According to reports from Sputnik International, the Syrian Army has claimed that it has uncovered a chemical weapons “workshop” in East Ghouta after having liberated the territory where the workshop was located.
After sweeping through the village of Aftris in Eastern Ghouta following the withdrawal of terrorists from the area, Syrian Army Colonel Feruz Ibrahim told reporters that, “Presumably, the equipment of these munitions could be produced as part of a false flag accusation that government troops used chemical weapons.”
In other works, Ibrahim is echoing what many independent researchers have known for some time, i.e. that Western-backed terrorists have the ability and the desire to conduct false flag attacks to be blamed on the Syrian government for the purpose of justifying military action or airstrikes against the Syrian military by the United States and NATO.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry recently stated that militants inside East Ghouta may be preparing to stage a chemical attack in order to place blame on the Syrian government. Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister, Faisal Mekdad assured the press that Damascus was ready and willing to assist in investigations related to chemical attacks in Syria, but pointed out that various “international organizations” did not want to cooperate with the Syrian government.
Only a week ago, the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation also reported the possibility that terrorists were planning to stage chemical weapons attacks in East Ghouta in order to blame the Syrian government.
Although impossible to determine for sure, it seems that the willingness of the Russian government to uncover and announce plans of terrorists to stage chemical attacks may be foiling many of the attempts of the U.S. to take advantage of these false flags, at least on the world stage.
The OPCW has already confirmed that the Syrian chemical weapons stockpile has been destroyed. Even U.S. officials have had to admit that there has been no evidence of use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government in East Ghouta, with Defense Secretary James Mattis admitting that there was no evidence that the Syrian used chemical weapons in Khan Sheykhoun, despite the U.S. having launched a series of airstrikes against the al-Sha’aryat airbase, killing around 80, including civilians and children.
