The first false flag attack in Syria came in 2013 in a Damascus suburb which killed almost 1000 people with Sarin gas. It was blamed on the Assad regime in order to get the US to directly attack Syria after Obama had declared that using chemical weapons would cross a “red line.” That gas attack was done by Syrian rebels who received clandestine shipments of older Sarin gas from Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
The latest attack on Tuesday stems from claims by “activists” like the anti-Assad “White Helmets” that a Syrian or Russian airstrikes dropped bombs containing chemical weapons in rebel held areas of Ildib province, killing nearly 70 people 10 children. Syria has vehemently denied using chemical weapons and Russia said it had no aircraft in the area at the time.
Syria suggests that rebels exploded a chemical weapon on the ground in an area where rebels were under conventional aerial attack, in order to turn the Trump administration against Assad. This apparently worked as Trump responded that, "Today's chemical attack in Syria against innocent people, including women and children, is reprehensible and cannot be ignored by the civilized world.”
This latest attack has all the marks of a false flag attack, like the 2013 Damascus attack, for the following reasons 1) Syria gave up its chemical weapons in the 2014 agreement as certified by international inspectors. 2) gas attacks are a broad area weapon that have no military value in a fight against rebels fighting among civilians, unless specifically meant to kill civilians for purposes of poisoning public opinion against a nation. 3) There is no way that Assad would use chemical weapons against civilians knowing that the international community is eagerly looking for an excuse to blame him.
