Film crews have been spotted in Syria filming what appears to be a staged chemical attack featuring actors playing Syrian civilians.
According to a spokesman, the filming is for a film in which the Syrian government is seen attacking innocent civilians with Sarin gas.
“The events of Khan Shaykhun inspired terrorists to continue the staged shooting, like a television series” – the producer said.
In what appears to be a propaganda piece for the West to promote the idea that Assad gassed his own people, children are being paid money to participate in the video which aims to demonise Assad and debunk the ‘conspiracy theory’ that the actual chemical weapons attack was a false flag – conducted by US-backed rebels.
Staged filming has taking place in Syria, of the ‘army’ applying chemical weapons against the civilian population. The customer and the sponsor of the production are in Europe, reports RIA Novosti military-diplomatic source.
“The events of Khan Shaykhun inspired terrorists to continue the staged shooting, like a television series” – a spokesman said.
The source pointed out that it was held in populated areas of Jisr al-Shugur (province of Idlib).
Involved were up to 30 fire engines and ambulances, as well as 70 local residents with children, brought in from the refugee camps.
The video was shot on cell phones from several angles, as well as using a drone.
Each participant, including children, were paid a thousand Syrian pounds and handed food packages.
The source added that it is reasonable to expect a release of the ‘motion picture’ in the next few days – until Sunday, he added.
