Syria’s government troops have found a make-shift workshop for making chemical weapons in the East Ghouta, the Syrian Army’s Colonel Firas Ibrahim told the media on Monday.

The workshop was found as troops combed the town of Aftris following the militants’ pullout.

“Apparently the weapons were made as part of preparations for a provocation with the aim to eventually accuse government troops of using chemical weapons,” he said.

Earlier, Syria’s Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said militants in Eastern Ghouta had been plotting an imitation of a chemical attack in order to blame it on government forces.

Also, he said that terrorists from the group Tahrir al-Sham had a plan for “sacrificing” several women.

That is the straight result of US, UK and French dumb talk about a red line for chemical weapons. They asked for is and the terrorists wanted to deliver.
