Summary

The ‘gas attack’ that killed in Idlib at least 72 people, including 20 children, was a provocation by Daesh/IS and their supporters (the US).

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, no evidence given. It is an often repeated disinformation that the US support Daesh/IS, while in fact, Western military action in Syria and Iraq has clearly targeted Daesh.
