BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:10 A.M.) – French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian stated on Tuesday that there were ‘signs’ that the Syrian military had used chemical weapons in the northwestern province of Idlib, adding that they still need to be verified.

“We have a sign of the use of chemical weapons in the Idlib area but for now there isn’t verification,” he told the French parliament’s foreign affairs committee, according to Reuters.

“We are cautious because we think that the use of chemical weapons must be confirmed and lethal before we react,” added Le Drian.

The problem with this claim by the French Foreign Minister is that the chemical weapons attack reportedly took place inside northeast Latakia.

According to the jihadist group who made the claim, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham, the Syrian military used chlorine bombs on their positions in the mountaintop town of Kabani.

Kabani is located just west of the Hama and Idlib provinces; it has long been under the control of HTS and the foreign jihadist group, the Turkestan Islamic Party.

+++ “everytime NATO jihadist get cornered” => NATO is not a political organisation and has only a limited administrative budget with very few assets, e.g. the NATO’s E-3 Sentry fleet, and other common assets. Moreover NATO budgets are public. I’m sorry, it seems to be a popular idea considerng the number of thumbs-up but you’ve just proven you totally ignore about what’s going on in Syria. So let us be clear : NATO is a military alliance which packs near the 2 thirds of the world’s military power. NATO can be activated by 3 factors : – Attack on one… Read more »

Yes the French politicians are stupid and furthermore they are on the take. A rational person knows you can not believe Lying jihadist. A trail of war crimes follows these Reprobates. French politicians know it too. They are stupid because these rats will return home once they face the full force of Russian power and SAA fire. They can not dump all their citizens onto Iraq nor can they prevent foreign JihadiTrash from entering the country.

,so long as they can make the world believe their fantasys it could be called Timbuktu as far as they are concerned! They just want to find an excuse to support their jihadi puppet army.

No, actually, we want Assad to butcher all these jihadis and hang the captured ones, but if they believe they can’t win, they will flee and won’t be butchered, then you’ll have 500-600 radicalised ex-French in the nature fomenting terrorist attacks. My two cents Putin is not willing the even more numerous Chechens left in Idlib/Nothern Syria to flee combats, that’s exactly why Russians do pauses, accept ceasefires they perfectly know are used to regroup/reorganise by the roaches…
What is sad on social-media : most people post emotional stuff, few recoup informations and few use their reason…

NATO was also in Kosovo on the Wahhabi side, NATO was also on Wahhabi side in Libya.
Putin and Assad have rare military types, because of this Wahhabis can escape to Europe.

France: Syria may have carried out a chemical attack northwest Idlib.
USA: Syria may have carried out a chemical attack northeast Latakia
Let us complete this:
Spain: Syria may have carried out a chemical attack south Idlib
UK: Syria may have carried out a chemical attack west Idlib
Autralia: Syria may have carried out a chemical attack at the center of Idlib.

In this way, Idlib are is full of chemical attacks, and it would be very easy for the UN-USA-EXPERT to detect these chemical attacks.

Oui. It’s “gilletS jaunes”. You know, most of them voted Marine LePen… Since she’s a lawyer, Marine takes much more care abut what she says than her dad, the former leader of her party, but the mind state is the same… The kind of “jokes” members of this party will tell you? “One Arab in the sea? Pollution! All Arabs in the sea? Solution!” I once receive a folding sheet of paper visual “joke” from one of these… With the A4 sheet fully opened, you saw a large gorgeous grave with stars of David, menorahs etc… As a comment :… Read more »

In France, the cathedral burns up because it was burned by the dead Templar. In the flames, Jesus appears. Jesus agrees with the Templar. The French are destroying Christianity in Syria, Libya and Iraq. Do you think that Jesus is still willing to listen to the French requests and prayers?
