“The people who have benefited from this kind of attack are the rebels themselves, because they have gained a major political advantage at a time when they are struggling both strategically and geopolitically,” Charles Shoebridge, a British security analyst and counterterrorism expert, told RT.
Shoebridge was referring to the recent attack in the town of Khan Sheikhoun that reportedly killed at least 58 people, including 11 children under the age of eight, according to medical workers and the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, as cited by Reuters.
The expert went on to say that the Syrian government forces in fact had no motivation to carry out such an attack, as they are already“gaining major victories” over the armed opposition groups and terrorists alike “across Syria.”
He stressed that this attack would only provoke “the condemnation of the world community,” and would be absolutely ineffective from a military point of view. He also drew attention to the suspicious timing of the attack, which occurred just days before a major conference on Syria in Brussels.
