Chemical Drama


As the zero hour for declaring victory against terrorism in Syria and uprooting takfiri terrorist organizations from the Syrian soil, some Western states and their agents in the region are trying to prepare a new chapter of the chemical farce which started several years ago and coincided with every victory realized by the heroes of the Syrian Arab army in their battle against terrorism. The forces supporting terrorism in Syria have consistently used chemical weapons as a pretext to block the progress of the Syrian Army as they use it as a political pressure against the Syrian state to hinder all efforts being exerted to end the crisis in Syria and obstruct the political solution.

The goal of the propaganda campaign currently being waged against Syria by the US and its allies is not only to provide support for the terrorists, who are using chemical weapons, but also to encourage them to use it again. Since the beginning of this year, four incidents of chemical weapons use by terrorists have been uncovered in Suruj in Idleb countryside and Msheirfeh. There is a lot of evidence of the use of weapons containing mustard gas by terrorists on September 16, 2016 in Umm Hosh, as well as their use of sarin gas in 2013 in Khan al-Asal and Eastern Ghouta.

The US claims of new chemical attacks allegedly planned by the Syrian government are unsubstantiated. These accusations are not backed up by anything. No one is putting forward any facts and the goal is to aggravate tensions and prolong the crisis. This complicates the negotiation process, negatively affects the efforts being made in Astana and Geneva. The statements and accusations fabricated in the past few days by Western officials and representatives of their governments are part of a cheap political and media war that has been always coincided with the Syrian army and its allies’ real achievements in the fight against terrorism and the intra-Syrian talks, whether in Astana or Geneva,  to hinder the Syrian government’s efforts to achieve a political solution among the Syrians without foreign interference.

The allegations made by the US and its allies on the use of chemical weapons have become exposed to the world public opinion and its purpose is to justify any potential aggression against Syria. The best proof of this is what happened last April in Douma, where Washington deliberately blocked the arrival of the investigation team to the region and rushed to anticipate the launching of the tripartite aggression on Syria which proves that the accusations are just an excuse to justify aggression and that the US is not interested in any investigation that is inconsistent with its policies.

 The tripartite aggression launched by the US, Britain and France was a desperate attempt to help the defeated terrorists as they were  uprooted from eastern Ghouta by the Syrian Arab army and the allied forces.  The aggression on Syria came as a revenge for the defeat of these three countries’ terrorist proxies in Ghouta. The US and Zionists attack Syria whenever terrorists suffer a setback. The US and the Zionist entity have always interfered to raise the morale of the terrorists in Syria as the terrorists are going through difficult times.

 Everything promoted by the US will not affect the morale of the Syrian people and the plans of the Syrian Arab Army to liberate Idleb and eliminate the terrorists in Syria. Washington’s main objective was to prolong the crisis in Syria in the interests of Israel.

The West should stop such misguided campaigns and  stop its direct support to armed terrorist groups in Syria, including its support for the White Helmets. The governments of some permanent member states at the UNSC have given up their responsibilities and become politically and legally ineligible to defend international peace and security as they are ready to exploit the UN Security Council, the UN and other international bodies to make political gains at the expense of maintaining international peace and security.

The party  which covers up and protects the Israeli nuclear, biological and chemical arsenal and invents false pretexts to keep its chemical arsenal, and the one which previously destroyed Iraq over Weapons of Mass Destruction lies, withdrew from the international agreement with Iran, cut funding for UNRWA, withdrew from UNESCO and which continues to put pressure on the United Nations and threatens of withdrawing from the world Trade Organization does not have the right to accuse Syria of using chemical weapons, particularly when this party’s history is full of proofs about its use of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons against civilians in many parts of the world.

The terrorist organizations in Idleb are preparing for new chemical attacks.  Russia has provided the OPCW with information about the delivery of chemicals and equipment required for carrying out these attacks in terrorist-held areas. The so-called “White Helmets” organization is helping terrorists stage such fabricated scenarios similar to those in Douma.

The continuity of such provocations will further increase tension in the Middle East and hinder the political process in Syria. Syrian people will not bow down to political blackmail or threats of a direct military attack by the US, Britain and France and will continue their battle against terrorism until the uprooting takfiri terrorists from the Syrian soil.
