The video-sharing giant took down four Syrian state-run YouTube channels, including two channels belonging to state media and the official account of the Syrian presidency, amid escalating tensions in the militant-held province of Idlib and repeated warnings by the Russian military that the White Helmets were planning a new false flag chemical attack.
The U.S.’ willingness to treat Al Nusra as an ally in Syria seems set to continue, given the Trump administration’s ultimate goal of targeting Iran’s influence in Syria as well as its newly “redefined” goal of regime change in Damascus.
As Syrian and Russian government forces prepare to recapture the last “rebel stronghold” of Idlib province from Al Qaeda-linked terrorists, YouTube has abruptly shut down all Syrian state and pro-Syrian channels in heed of Russia’s warnings of an anticipated false-flag chemical attack staged by the White Helmets, to be used as grounds for US-UK-France retaliatory strikes.
The Russian Defense Ministry stated earlier that terrorists in the rebel-held Syrian city of Idlib have almost completed their preparations for a provocation involving chemical weapons.
While no final decision has yet been made, a top US general says he’s involved in “routine dialogue” with President Donald Trump to keep him informed about “military options” for retaliation in case “chemical weapons are used” in Syria.
