The hacking of a private British defense contractor’s website has revealed a proposed plan for a false-flag event in Syria involving chemical weapons, and plans for an invasion of Iran.
The proposed plan was found in a much larger document dump from the Britam Defence company website, which was hacked on January 24. A total of 423MB of data was released to the public by the hackers, who accessed the company’s Malaysian servers.
The documents are broken down into three folders: Syria, Iran, and Iraq.
In a November 2012 e-mail, Business Development Director, David Goulding, writes to founder and Director Philip Doughty that an unnamed client in Quatar has contacted him for the false-flag operation, reports Cyberwarfare News.
“We’ve got a new offer. It’s about Syria again,” Goulding writes. “Qataris propose an attractive deal and swear that the idea is approved by Washington.
“We’ll have to deliver a CW to Homs, a Soviet origin g-shell from Libya similar to those that Assad should have,” he continues. “They want us to deploy our Ukrainian personnel that should speak Russian and make a video record.
“Frankly, I don’t think it’s a good idea but the sums proposed are enormous. Your opinion?”
The United States has warned Syria to not use its chemical weapons cache on rebels fighting a nearly-two-year-long civil war in the country. The Assad government has repeatedly said it will not unleash the weapons of mass destruction on civilians, but has reserved its right to use them against any foreign forces invading the country.
Russia, a close ally of Syria, has already been caught smuggling military supplies and weaponry into Syria via commercial aircraft. Russian advisers are also on the ground in Syria, manning the country’s air defenses, reports the UK Guardian.
In another folder marked “Iran,” the company has written out extensive plans for a future attack on Iran that include procedures for preventing or using chemical warfare, luring targets to kill zones, medical help, and intelligence relays:
Move from their garrisons to occupy AA at Grid (1556) (IAW Movement Order).
On order defend in the designated sector from Grid (378477) to Grid (275408).
Facilitate the passage of the Screening Force through PP (1, 2).
Fix Enemy forces and lure them to the Killing Zones.
On order conduct Counter Attack.
Support Reserves when they conduct deep operations.
Other information found in the document dump includes passport photos of employees, C.V.s and other sensitive operational data.
