BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 P.M.) – A number of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers were hospitalized on Tuesday after the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham fired chemical substances towards their garrison in southeast Idlib.
According to the Arab language version of Sputnik News, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham fired chemical substances towards the Syrian Arab Army’s positions in the Sham Al-Hafa region.
Al-Masdar reached out to the Syrian Arab Army in northern Hama to confirm these claims.
A source from the Syrian Arab Army told Al-Masdar that two soldiers were hospitalized as a result of the attack; however, it is not clear if or what chemical substances were used.
These reports come just days after the Russian Foreign Ministry said that the jihadist rebels were preparing a new chemical weapons provocation inside the Idlib Governorate.
