After the false flag chemical weapons attack, the US planned to strike government held districts in Damascus as a “response,” according to the Chief of the Russian General Staff Valery Gerasimov.
Russian armed forces will respond if the lives of Russian servicemen in Syria are threatened, including in the event of a missile strike on Damascus, the Russian General Staff said.
“According to reports, after the false flag attack, the US plans to accuse the Syrian government troops of using chemical weapons, and to provide the world community with the so-called ‘evidence’ of the alleged mass death of civilians at the hands of the Syrian government and “Russia supporting it,” the chief of the General Staff said. In retaliation, Washington, according to Gerasimov, “plans to launch a missile strike on the government-held districts of Damascus.”
At the same time in Damascus, in the offices and facilities of the Ministry of Defense of Syria, there are now Russian military advisers, representatives of the Center for the Reconciliation of Warring Parties and military police, Gerasimov stressed.
“We have reliable information about militants preparing to falsify a government chemical attack against civilians. In several districts of Eastern Ghouta, a crowd was assembled with women, children and old people, brought from other regions, who were to represent the victims of the chemical incident, ” Gerasimov said.
According to Gerasimov, “White Helmets” activists and film crews had already arrived at the scene with satellite video transmitters are already in place.
“This has been confirmed by the discovery of a laboratory for the production of chemical weapons in the village of Aftris, which was liberated from terrorists,” Gerasimov stressed.
“Despite constant attempts by militants to disrupt peace initiatives in Eastern Ghouta, the situation in the suburb of Damascus shows a trend toward stabilization. Since the entry into force of UN Security Council Resolution 2401 of February 24, 2018, [a total of] 145 civilians and 13 representatives of armed opposition, including 76 people overnight, have been withdrawn from Eastern Ghouta though the humanitarian corridor created by the Russian Federation,” Gerasimov added.
After the provocation, the US plans to accuse Syria’s government forces of using chemical weapons. He added that the United States plans to “furnish the so-called ‘evidence’ of the alleged mass civilian deaths through the fault of the Syrian government and the Russian leadership supporting it.”
“As a countermeasure, Washington plans to deliver a missile and bomb strike against Damascus’ government districts,” Gerasimov said.He stressed that there are Russian military officials in Damascus in the Syrian Defense Ministry’s facilities, and “in the event of a threat to our military servicemen’s lives, Russia’s Armed Forces will take retaliatory measures to target both the missiles and their delivery vehicles.”
The Russian Defense Ministry is ready to take retaliatory measures against US’ possible strike over Damascus if there is any danger to the Russian military, head of the Russian General Staff added.
“At the same time, Russian military advisors, members of the Russian Reconciliation Center for the Conflicting Sides and military policemen are staying in the Syrian Defense Ministry’s facilities in Damascus. In case there is a threat to the lives of our military, the Russian Armed Force will take retaliatory measures both over the missiles and carriers that will use them,” he said.
According to Gerasimov, “events to further normalize the situation in Syria’s capital are going on.”
According to earlier reports, illegal armed groups are shelling with mortars both positions of the Syrian government forces and the residential quarters of Damascus and its suburbs.
I think, all the preparations of the Pentagon and CIA have made to create on the so-called “chemical weapons of Assad” until today, will go out like the balloon with the today’s statement of the chief of staff of the Russian Federation. I think General Gerasimov’s statement is not the hardest, but the most accurate explanation. Because, last 5 years Russia’s sayings were not taken in seriously by the USA government and the western governments. The West gave the appearance of playing a one-team match on a dual-goal area. And they have never considered what would be reaction of defense. General Gerasimov’s speaks reminded me a chess game. (Actually I do not know well chess game, I know some moves in generally, due to I do not know all moves in chess, I cannot say “I know the chess game). There are some general moves for checkmate. One of them is Queen and Bishop control checkmate. In this move, bishop protects the queen. If you think you will win the game , you can be wrong, because there is the possibility to be checkmate in next two moves. That is to say, USA government and western governments should think twice, even more than twice. Because, it seems that only two moves remained for Russia can win.
What will USA’s powers do, if Russian military would respond to their attacks on Damascus? They will take the risk of hot conflict against Russia, and also USA military forces’s deaths as result?
By the way, yesterday there was a news. According to Euronews, “The Swiss parliament did not open, because there is no agenda to discuss.“
While all world goes to upside down, Switzerland parliament cannot find any subject to discuss. I think, every country on the planet should send one agenda (what they cannot solve about their country) to Swiss parliament, and Swiss deputies work on them, thus, they will get rid of to be bored.:)
