BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:35 P.M.) – The Syrian military was accused by opposition activists, Tuesday, of carrying out a chemical weapons attack on the Idlib Governorate town of Khan Sheikhoun.

However, Syrian Army sources have informed Al-Masdar News that no chemical weapons attack occurred today, despite contradictory claims from the opposition.

Al-Masdar’s Yusha Yuseef was informed by the Syrian Army that the air force targeted missile factory in Khan Sheikoun, using Russian-manufactured Su-22 fighter jet to carry out the attack.

The Su-22’s bombs are unique and cannot be filled with any chemical substances, which is different than bombs dropped from attack helicopters.

Furthermore, Yuseef was told the Syrian Air Force did not know there were any chemical substances inside the missile factory in Khan Sheikhoun.

Whether the Syrian government forces used chemical weapons during this attack has not yet been proven by the opposition, but these allegations have reached the international stage, as the French regime has reportedly demanded an immediate investigation by the United Nations.

France really needs to stop poking her nose into Syria. France has backed the terrorists since the internecine war started and now finds herself , again, on the wrong side of history.

Any ambitions of France to restore her colonial grasp of resources in Syria has gone forever.

The proud people of Syria who support President Assad will have lost any respect they once might have had for France.

“French regime has reportedly demanded an immediate investigation by the United Nations. ” 1. French govt is not a “regime” 2. demanding an investigation is NOT accusing! “France has backed the terrorists since the internecine war started and now finds herself , again, on the wrong side of history.” => Yeep, the ‘terrorists’ in YPG and Peshmergas. Hey dude, do you ee terrorists using FAMAS, Hécate II, H&K-416, Milan ATGM, Giat 20mm AA-gun, Mistral ManPADS, etc etc? Be real 5 minutes! “to restore her colonial grasp of resources in Syria has gone forever” => Colonial grasp? Are you stupid??? Colonising… Read more »

Yes FlorianGeyer. IMHO The socialist French government’s Syria statements and acts are an embarrassment to the whole EC.

Ask Merkel about the spy ship filled with ELINT, SIGINT and COMINT antennas and systems in order to help the “moderate rebels” in intelligence gathering. Even US NSA is jealous : it’s more powerful than the Echelon “doughnut” they planted in UK. And guess who still tries to have Turkey enter the Union. Without Angie, everybody would have said “ErdoFUCK YOU!” for long. US/UK needed Angie for pressuring at not selling the Mistral-ships to Russia. Hadn’t she backed Obongo and Cameron-the-Maricon, we wouldn’t had lost €250M and moreover, any future weapon deal with Russia for long (thus, have they refunded… Read more »

Our “best friends and allies” have not yet stolen all we invented.

Angi is very polite – even to Germany’s “best liked friend” the Sultan.

Federica should consult all EC first – that interview was her private B.S. IMHO.

Other pros would simply counter accuse militants of staging the attacks, as protest against official US claims that only “Syrian people can decide A.B. long term future”. These are the same people like the man who sent his 7 year old daughters to carry out suicide attacks.

Other pro’s would simply counter accuse the militants of staging the attacks themselves to protest US official statements that “Syrians will decide A. B. long term future” and for other political brownie points, like they did in the past.

It is so easy to stop the ru & sy army in its tracks when they are on a roll; just make up some retarded accusations, and the idiots will actually start defending themselves.
