UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – The US and Western countries are using a provocation using chemical weapons for political pressure on Russia, they are not ready to strike Syria, said member of the political department of the Syrian Social-Nationalist Party, Sleiman Al-Khalil.
Earlier, the West accused Damascus of allegedly taking place on the Syrian city of the Duma in East Ghouta. Moscow refuted information about the chlorine bomb allegedly dropped by the Syrian military. The Russian Foreign Ministry said that the goal of the throw-in on the use of poisonous substances by the troops of Syria is to shield the terrorists and justify possible power strikes from outside.
“The world political war against Russia resorted to the old and again repeating scenario of accusations of using chemical weapons, and the question is whether these accusations will be the reason for the attack on Syria, I think that the response was given by the Russian command – this blow will be followed by a response from Russia Will any of them (Western countries) decide to play with the “Russian bear”? I do not think so, “Al-Khalil told.
According to the politician, provocations with the use of chemical weapons are used to escalate the anti-Russian campaign and diplomatic pressure. Given that the Syrian army is a strong ally of Russia in the fight against terrorism, it turns out that Russia as a force supporting the Syrian army allegedly indirectly uses banned weapons, which means there is an occasion to exert political pressure on Russia, Al-Khalil said.
“If we recall the past few weeks, we will find all the facts that speak about the preparations for provocation, connected with the use of chemical weapons as the success of the Syrian army with the support of the Russian Air Force, which led to the collapse in the ranks of bandit formations,” the source added.
Al-Khalil noted that Western countries can easily raise the issue of the use of chemical weapons in the UN Security Council or in the international court only as a lever of pressure, but striking Syria is an unlikely scenario.
