The Syrian government “categorically” denied on Tuesday US accusations that mass killings are happening at a prison north of Damascus, with the victims burned there in a crematorium.

The allegations are “a new Hollywood plot” to justify U.S. intervention in Syria, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement. It called the State Department’s allegations “lies” and “fabrications,” noting what it called a U.S. history of making up false claims as a pretext for military aggression.

“The U.S. administration’s accusations against the Syrian government of a so-called crematorium in Saydnaya prison, in addition to the broken record about the use of barrel bombs and chemical weapons, are categorically false,” the Syrian Foreign Ministry said.
