Syrian state YouTube channels ‘terminated’ amid fears of looming false flag chemical attack

RT | September 9, 2018

A number of Syrian state and media-linked YouTube accounts have gone dark, as the battle for Idlib looms, amid Russia’s warnings of an imminent false-flag chemical attack and Western preparations for retaliatory strikes.

On Saturday afternoon, the channels belonging to the Syrian Presidency, the country’s Ministry of Defense, and SANA news all showed a message saying: This account has been terminated due to a legal complaint” or “This account has been terminated for a violation of YouTube’s Terms of Service.”

The Damascus-based Sama TV channel on YouTube also appeared to be taken down, with a message reading: “This page isn’t available. Sorry about that. Try searching for something else.”

While YouTube has yet to issue a comment on the matter, it appears that Syrian channels went offline sometime on Saturday morning, just as Gen. Joseph Dunford warned that Pentagon is preparing and keeping Donald Trump informed about “military options” for retaliation in case “chemical weapons are used” in Syria.

The US has made it abundantly clear that it is ready to attack Syria, should chemical weapons come into play in the government Idlib operation to clear the remaining pockets of jihadists resistance in the province. Moscow believes that terrorists holed up in Idlib will try to stage a false flag attack to frame Damascus to justify further air strikes against Syria, and has warned the US against escalating the situation in the war-torn country.

On Saturday, the Russian military said it had obtained “irrefutable” data that terrorist groups, including Jabhat an-Nusra, and the infamous White Helmets, already met in Idlib province, and plotted the final scenarios for the false-flag chemical attacks in the cities of Jisr ash-Shugur, Serakab, Taftanaz and Sarmin.

The US and its allies have repeatedly stressed its readiness to strike Syria if any attack takes place, ignoring all Russia’s warnings. In late August, American forces deployed missile destroyer USS ‘Ross’ to the Mediterranean and USS ‘The Sullivans’ to the Persian Gulf. The preparation of US military forces was condemned by Russia, with its Defense Ministry describing the move as “the latest evidence of the US intention” to take advantage of a false-flag attack.

  1. Heaven help us, they’re making their preparations right out in the open. They must realize that we are bound to notice, and they don’t care. Vive la Syrie !

  2. The Syrian equivalent to “Donald Trump’s YouTube Channel” was taken down/off from YouTube weeks ago. We would regularly check out “PresidencySY” channel to see if any new English-translation interviews of Bashar al-Assad were posted … Noticed the channel had vanished a few weeks ago, which came across, clearly, as disturbing.

    Perhaps tying the imminent Libya 2.0 on Syrians to 9/11 and the Browder-Magnitsky scandal (which, ironically is the case) could be an effective deterrent…
