Iran Defense Minister in Damascus, says Will Help Rebuild Syria

This has, in turn, prompted Russian Federation to accuse the United States and its allies of aiding rebels in preparing a false flag attack that would provide the justification for striking Assad again.

Worldwide investigators have linked Syria's government to more than 100 chemical attacks since the beginning of Syria's civil war, and Russian Federation has frequently made debunked claims about the existence or perpetrators of chemical attacks in Syria.

"We now see plans for the Syrian regime to resume offensive military activities in Idlib province", Bolton said.

Last week, US national security adviser John Bolton warned the United States will act "very strongly" if Syria uses chemical weapons to take the province.

According to him, the documents make it clear that the Jabhat al-Nusra terror group (outlawed in Russia) and some other terrorists pledged readiness to use chemical weapons against civilians in Idlib in order to put the blame on Syrian authorities and justify a foreign military aggression.

"This provocation with the active participation of the British special services will serve as another pretext for the USA, United Kingdom and France to conduct a missile strike on the Syrian government and infrastructure", Konashenkov said. The ship is armed with 28 Tomahawk cruise missiles, exactly what the U.S. used in their last two attacks on Syria. Iran has provided key support to Assad in the seven-year civil war, sending thousands of military advisers and allied militiamen to bolster his forces.

In early April, a number of non-governmental organizations, including the White Helmets, reported that Syrian troops had allegedly used chemical weapons in the town of Douma on April 7. Russia's navy buildup around Syria represents the biggest since Moscow kicked off its Syrian intervention with its sole aircraft carrier in 2015.

"Physically the Russians really can't do anything to stop that strike", said Lamrani. "If the United States comes in and launches cruise missiles" - as it has in past strikes - "the Russians have to be ideally positioned to defend against them, still won't shoot down all of them, and will risk being seen as engaging the U.S.", which might cause USA ships to attack them.

A statement from Russia's Defense Ministry on Sunday said two frigates were heading to the Mediterranean Sea.

"Syria is in a very, very important juncture".
