Breaking: French Attempt to Kill Syrian President Assad
by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor
No news on Assad, his condition or if he was wounded or killed…
Reports received from Damascus only minutes ago cite an assassination attempt on President Assad. There is nothing else available, VT Damascus bureau chief is meeting now with administration officials.
We did get this from sources in Syria’s security services. While going thru the checklist of usual suspects, the period of “silence” came when naming France. Few in the west are aware of the influence France has in Lebanon and Syria. This region was awarded to France after World War I and the French language, culture and the French security services and their Israeli masters and Turkish partners haunt the shadows of Damascus like ghouls. **** The same people who assassinated in cold blood our Leader Qaddafi they are the same who want to assassinate Assad. The thing is that this is getting old… the West know only too well they will not be able to get rid of Assad because Assad’s allies are stronger and the Westerners tactics are all out of date…. here is further information about the idiocy of the French and its allies.
Exclusive: French Arrested in Assad Assassination Attempt
French ask for return of accused conspirators….
By Nahed al Husaini and Gordon Duff
Two French nationals along with Syrian Kurds were arrested in a bizarre attempt on the life if Bashar al Assad, President of Syria. The French government has already contacted Damascus through direct channels asking for the return of those arrested. The French indicate they are willing to enter into negotiations for the return of the captive accused assassins.
The alleged conspirators are said to have been working with a Kurdish terror cell that had penetrated the household staff of Assad. The Kurds had planted explosives inside detergent containers at the presidential palace south of Damascus. The attack was not successful.
The French security officers arrested had been in Syria earlier as part of a secret combined French/Syrian task force on terrorism. Two French intelligence officers who were smuggled across the border into Syria by Al Nusra militants south of Qalamoun, scene of an intense battle that has raged for weeks.
Their previous visit to Damascus earlier this year was a secret mission that accompanied the French delegation during their Febrary 27, 2015 visit. The official reason for the visit was to arrange for the reopening of the French embassy which had been closed since 2012.
Syrian officials speaking anonymously say that the Damascus government believes the would be assassins are part of a Kurdish faction trained inside Jordan. The explosives used were from the Royal Jordanian Army.
