Syrian FM: White Helmets Kidnapped 44 Children to Stage Chemical Attack in Idlib
“Another provocation by the West is being prepared in order to try to obstruct the anti-terrorist operation in Idlib,” Lavrov said at a joint news conference with his Syrian counterpart Walid Muallem in Moscow.
Lavrov also stressed that the US attempts to establish “authorities” on the left bank of the Euphrates, as it may lead to Syria’s split.
“The US presence in Syria has not only a military aspect… Simultaneously, our American colleagues are actively developing the eastern bank of the Euphrates, restoring infrastructure there, social and economic networks and even creating quasi-state local government bodies,” he said.
The White Helmets have kidnapped 44 children in Idlib to use in a staged chemical attack, according to the Syrian foreign minister.
“Behind the creation of the pseudo-organization the White Helmets, are the British special services: they sponsor them, they lead them. They were behind the organization of those fabricated scenarios for the use of chemical weapons and now they are preparing such a development of the situation with the use of chemical weapons in Idlib,” Muallem stated.”
