Does the cloud firewall prevent IP address spoofing?

As the cloud firewall filters based on source IP addresses: Would it be possible for an attacker to create packets that have a spoofed source IP address and thus break through the firewall?
I mean, assuming the attacker knew any whitelisted source IP addresses...
I'm asking for both, the external network interface as well as the private network interface.
Thank you!
