An officer of the Syrian special service Mukhabarat has reported to our rusvesna.su (Russian Spring) correspondent: By monitoring the channels of communication of high-ranking members of the gangs, intelligence officers managed to intercept information about a series of bloody provocations in progress.
“After the recent missile strike by the US, the bandits have been thinking that they could provoke the Trump administration into taking further similar actions,” the military official said.
“In the near future, ambushes of the UN humanitarian convoys delivering humanitarian aid to the residents of Khel and Tell-Gehab settlements (Deraa province) by special teams of the Syrian Free Army are in the works,” the source told rusvesna.su (Russian Spring).
“At the same time, it is planned to pass off the attacks on UN convoys as artillery or air strikes of the Armed Forces of the Syrian Arab Republic, by means of fragments gathered up with the markings preserved, as well as bits of aircraft bombs and missiles used by the Syrian Air Force.
The most likely places to shoot convoys will be the sections of the routes Ramat-Khel and Er-Ramta-Tell-Gehab, located in areas reachable by artillery of the government troops located in the city of Deraa” said the Mukhabarat officer.
He added that there is also a variant of the convoy ambush plan, to be blamed on a special-purpose group of the Armed Forces of the Syrian Arab Republic.
“This way the organizers of the provocation are counting on causing new missile and air strikes of the so-called “international coalition” against targets of the Syrian government troops located in the province of Deraa. In addition, the declaration of a “casus belli” (formal occasion for declaration of war) by foreign patrons of the “Syrian Free Army” is not excluded,” the scout summed up.

Shajul Islam, the 31 years-old British doctor, posted several videos on Twitter in which he is allegedly treating the patients, following the April 4th chemical assault in Khan Sheikhoun, Syria. The controversial British citizen is also known to be affiliated with the terrorist groups, fighting against the Syrian Army.
Although the corporate media tried to portray him in the best light possible, independent journalists and activists nonetheless discovered the fact that in 2013 he was arrested on terrorism-related charges.
In 2012, Islam went to Syria for the first time. Upon returning, he was wanted by the MI6 due to allegedly being involved in the kidnapping of the British photojournalist John Cantlie and his Dutch colleague Jeroen Oerlemans. The two were held hostage for 9 days in a jihadist camp in northern Syria where Islam was believed to be working.
Islam was charged (and later held in the high security Belmarsh Prison on terrorism-related offences) along with his younger brother Najul Islam, and Jubayer Chowdhury, before beginning his trial.
The charges against Islam were later dropped by the prosecutors due to the fact that Cantile and Oerlemans were not able to attend the trial. The former remained in Syria and was eventually kidnapped by ISIS, while the latter, was shot by an ISIS sniper in Libya back in 2016.
Despite this, Islam claims to be working only as a medic without connections to any of the terrorist groups.
Recently, however, he was interviewed by the jihadist-turned US journalist Bilal Abdul Kareem, best remembered from covering the jihadists and their activities in eastern Aleppo, shortly before its liberation.
From the article comment section:
- Can someone change the title of the article to: “US ordering Syrian groups to use chemical weapons, but media won’t report it.”
- Headline correction: ‘US posing as Syrian groups which use illegal chemical weapons against civilians”…
- of course their media will not report that. they want to give the impression that us moderate head choppers are nice people who are fighting for a jeffersonian democracy and temporarily launching suicide attacks and behead people
- …is American people aware of this insanity of its Government??? …are they just as evil as their Government?

We keep hearing about a ‘moderate opposition’ instead of calling them what they are. These are radical Islamic jihadi terror groups, Jim Jatras, former U.S. diplomat and GOP Senate policy adviser, told RT.
RT: Given the complex situation on the ground it is always difficult to determine who has done what, but with the repeated allegations, why does the U.S. continue to support groups which are being accused of committing war crimes?
Jim Jatras: I wish I knew the answer to that question. They’ve been doing it for five years, and of course you know that the American media don’t make it real clear the nature of the groups we’re supporting in Syria. We keep hearing about a moderate opposition instead of calling them what they are. These are radical Islamic jihadi terror groups – the same ones we keep saying we’re worried about launching attacks here in the United States. And here we are supporting groups in Syria that have this jihadist ideology, cut off heads of little kids, use chemical weapons and I don’t think the American people really make the connection because the media does not report it.
RT: What is the red line, that if the group crosses, the U.S. might stop backing it? Isn’t the beheading of a child or the use of prohibited weapons enough to put an end to supporting a particular group?
JJ: I think what it likely to resolve it in another sense is by what’s happening on the battlefield. The reason these two chemical attacks were launched, clearly is a false flag in the case of the one that landed in opposition-controlled territory, is to try to pull a rabbit out of the hat to stop the Syrian Army’s offensive in Aleppo, supported by the Russian Air Force. If Aleppo is liberated this was is going to be effectively over. It will take some time, but there won’t be any question any more which way things are going militarily. Maybe that’s got to be the solution because I don’t see the open-mindedness here in Washington. Quite the contrary. Remember the letter from the 51 diplomats at the State Department. And Hillary Clinton has indicated through her puppet Michele Flournoy, her designated secretary of defense, that if things are still going like this in January… they want to launch airstrikes against Assad. I don’t see an open mind here in Washington.
RT: Such a chemical attack against civilians is a deplorable method. What would the Syrian Army have to gain from such tactics?
JJ: Sure it is. But it begs credibility to suggest that this came from the [Syrian] government. Why would they do that? They are advancing on Aleppo. These are not – as far as anybody can tell – weapons-grade gas attacks, at least from what I’ve heard on the news reports. It seems to be more of what is known as ‘kitchen gas’ variety that is certainly within the capabilities of these terrorist groups. It makes perfect sense that’s where it would come from. And frankly, I don’t think it’s going to wash with anybody here.
