BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:14 A.M.) – Speaking in Moscow on Wednesday, Russian Defence Ministry spokesperson Major-General Igor Konashenkov confirmed that the Syrian Air Force has conducted an airstrike on a militant warehouse where chemical weapons being delivered to Iraq were stored.

According to Konashenkov, the strike was conducted between 11.30 to 12.30 local time and targeted a militant-held ammunition depot on the eastern outskirts of the city Khan Sheikhun.

He stated, “Workshops for the production of land mines stuffed with poisonous substances were on the territory of this warehouse.” He added that the chemical weapons had been delivered to Iraq and repeatedly used there as confirmed by international organisations.

He also stressed, “this ammunition with poisonous substances were also used by militants in Syrian Aleppo,” which caused the same symptoms as the victims in Khan Sheikhun.

So the source for the outrageous war crimes was in finally found. Good riddance. I wonder whether these guys will also get an Oscar. Class: Excellent fake that went terribly out of control. p.s. The evidence IMHO means that the warehouse belonged to Qaeda or an affiliate. Just like the Oscar video and the groupings present. Reason: That video was uploaded by Sarmin Coordination, another Al Qaeda affiliated group, and then transformed into a White Helmet video for corporate media and the UN. http://21stcenturywire.com/2017/03/20/white-helmets-are-dead-children-being-used-as-props-for-propaganda-videos/ Present again White Helmet Qaeda members doing questionable rescue operations that do not fit to the… Read more »

The NATO nations never fail to seek an opportunity to try to create a No Fly Zone in Idlib and the immediate faux hysteria of the Western leaders demonstrates clearly that the ‘Assad Must Go ‘ narrative is still alive and well. Turkey will be involved with the terrorist manufacture of chemical weapons and is likely the route used to transport these weapons to Iraq via their Kurdish oil theft associates in Northern Iraq. White Helmet ambulances are a likely mode of transport. The NATO actors are also using this hysteria to put pressure on Trump’s policy in Syria. There… Read more »

Was the warehouse in Idlib or not? And how do they ship the chemicals from Idlib to Iraq? Trough Turkey and the trough Kurdistan?

AFAIK The impurities allow to say something about the origin.
No more.

p.s. Strictly speaking: the source for the chemicals in Idlib is the same as for Iraq and Aleppo. So is the likely recipe and maybe even the manufacturing.

It is known that the groups traded with other ammo.
