Konashenkov: Militants Preparing Provocation in Syria to Initiate US Attack

________________________

On Monday, Minoborony source Major-General Igor Konashenkov said:

According to information confirmed through three independent channels in Syria, the command of the so-called “Free Syrian Army” aided by US special ops units are preparing a serious provocation involving chemical weapons in Deir ez-Zor Governorate. FSA militants delivered chlorine cylinders to Deir ez-Zor Governorate to simulate another chemical attack against civilians. After publication in western media, a staged video is set to initiate a missile strike on Syrian state facilities by the US-led coalition to justify an offensive operation by militants against Syrian government forces on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River. We warn that the use of such provocations to destabilise the environment on Syrian territory is unacceptable.
