Foreign-sponsored Takfiri militants have reportedly abducted nearly two dozen children from the city of Jisr al-Shughur in Syria’s northwestern province of Idlib to use them in a fake chemical attack and then put the blame on Syrian government forces.
Local sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Lebanon-based Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network that terrorists have kidnapped 20 children over the past weeks in a bid to use them in the expected chemical farce.
The sources noted that the attack would be carried out in Jisr al-Shoghour prison, emphasizing that toxic materials have recently been transferred to the prison’s depot through the al-Hassaniyah border crossing, which links the city to Turkey.
The crossing is controlled by the Western-backed White Helmets “aid group, which has been accused of cooperating with Takfiri terrorists and staging false flag gas attacks.
The local sources went on to say that another chemical attack would be staged in the Christian-majority village of Hallouz.
Al-Mayadeen, citing unnamed informed sources, reported that some 250 White Helmets members and dozens of foreign militants would take part in the attacks, and that they would be launched a week after Syrian government troops start an offensive in Idlib.
