White Helmets Boost Presence in Idlib, Potentially Preparing a Provocation - Russian Special Envoy

Syria Civil Defence, better known as the White Helmets, is a non-governmental organisation registered in the United Kingdom. The group and its activities are widely endorsed by Western governments. Damascus, however, accuses the organisation of extremism and propaganda dissemination.

The White Helmets are ramping up their presence in Syria's Idlib, potentially readying a provocation, Russian President's Special Envoy Aleksandr Lavrentyev, said on Wednesday at a press conference following talks in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan.

Lavrentyev added that Moscow is calling on all its partners to carefully assess the information about the potential provocation.

The White Helmets is a UK-registered NGO. They describe themselves as former bakers, tailors, engineers, pharmacists, painters, carpenters, students and workers of other professions who volunteer to go to the "most dangerous place on earth" and protect local civilians from violence. The group enjoys wide publicity and endorsement in the West but has been accused by Damascus of extremism and spreading propaganda.

Russia considers the group's activity an element of an informational campaign aimed at the vilification of the Syrian government. In particular, Moscow accused the White Helmets of staging a false-flag provocation in Syria in 2013 that later gave grounds for the West to accuse Damascus of chemical attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are barely two weeks away from the Christmas holiday in this country; we may well see a false flag (most possibly concocted by the IDF or Shin Beit) to be blamed against Syria, and ... off we go.

I would like to politely, and strongly, caution President Trump; Secretary of State Pompeo, and Defense Secretary Ester, that fighting against Russia in Syria, would be one of the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly dumb things this government and military could possibly do right now.

Gentlemen, we do not have the weaponry; the troop strength; or the money; or the manufacturing to prevail in a conventional war against Russia in Syria.

And I am issuing a very urgent plea to all three of you; please, really listen to the people you trust to tell you the pure, unvarnished, butt-ugly truth, rather than the people who will tell you "Yes; it can be done", when something cannot be done.
