It is worth recalling that “Jihadist groups have a strong presence in Idlib alongside other rebel groups, some of which have received backing from powers including Turkey and the United States”. It is in their interest to not only watch the conflict between Russia and the US escalate, but to do everything in their power to create false flag events that achieve this.
Finally, it is worth noting that over the past several months Western countries, including the United States, had been quietly dropping their demands that Assad leave power in any deal to end the war, accepting that the rebels no longer had the capability to topple him by force. The use of banned chemical weapons would make it harder for the international community to sign off on any peace deal that does not remove him, something that Assad – and the rebels – are all aware of. It goes without saying, that the Syrian president had the most to lose from launching a chemical attack just as both the military and diplomatic tide was turning in his favor.
Washington’s involvement in the resolution and Trump’s harsh statements on Damascus can be explained by the fact that the US president is currently “testing the waters” and wants to find out where he “could play the American card,” according to political analyst Kirill Koktysh.
“Trump’s priority is the domestic media front and he will make statements concerning the hottest topics on the agenda. But such statement will not reflect any solid attitude. In fact, the White House will take into account the actual situation,” Koktysh told the Russian online newspaper Vzglyad.

Chinese Media: Terrorist Warehouse with Chemical Weapons attacked by SAA planes, not a chemical weapons attack by the Syrian govt.
Pictures of the White Helmets in Syria handling corpses of people who died from the recent gas attacks without gloves. Knowing that Sarin passes through skin, we should expect White Helmets to die soon also, except that they won’t. I think you know why not.
The Syrian government could not have carried out a chemical attack in Syria because all of the chemical weapons were taken out of the country under international supervision. Sputnik interviewed senior political researcher Boris Dolgov.
Assad argued that his government has no chemical weapons after agreeing to have them destroyed in 2013. He also ruled out having used chemicals against his own people.
The Russian Defense Ministry said early Wednesday that the airstrike near Khan Shaykhun was carried out by Syrian aircraft, which struck a terrorist warehouse that stored chemical weapons slated for delivery to Iraq.
According to a senior researcher of the Center for Arab and Islamic Studies of the Institute of Oriental Studies at the Russian Academy of Sciences, Boris Dolgov, these accusations are part of a new campaign to discredit the Syrian leadership.
“The Syrian Army is accused of using chemical weapons, while the data that is being used by those who launched this campaign, is based on the statements made by the NCESC and by an organization called Human Rights Observatory in Syria, which is located in London and in fact, has no means of its own to really monitor the situation,” Dolgov told Sputnik.
