Russian Defense Ministry Warns of New Fabricated Chemical Attack in Deir Ez-Zor

The Russian Defense Ministry has revealed that terrorist organizations have transferred canisters containing chlorine to the town of Jafra in Deir ez-Zor province to stage another chemical attack before pointing the finger of blame at the Syrian Army.

In a statement to the press, the Ministry’s spokesman Major General Igor Konashnikov cited ‘confirmed information’ to the effect that terrorist groups, aided and abetted by US special forces, are preparing a new provocation involving toxic agents in Deir ez-Zor province.

According to Konashnikov, the planned attack will be filmed and used to justify aerial attacks by the International Coalition against Syrian government targets and terrorist attacks against Syrian military sites in the area.
