(TASS) Militants in Syria are using chemical weapons, including improvised munitions, Head of the Russian General Staff’s Main Operations Department Colonel-General Sergei Rudskoi said on Tuesday.

“At the same time, instances were registered when militants used chemical weapons, including improvised munitions. The case files of investigations into some of such episodes have been transferred to representatives of the OPCW [the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons],” the Russian general said.

The militants have been bringing poisonous substances to several areas in Syria to provoke new US attacks:

“According to our information, militants have been bringing poisonous substances to the Khan Shaykhun area, the Jirah airport, Eastern Ghouta and the western outskirts of Aleppo,” he elaborated.

“They aim to create another pretext for accusing the Syrian government of using chemical weapons and provoke new US strikes on Syria,” Rudskoi added.

“We would like to warn that such steps are unacceptable,” the Russian general said.

It’s clear that now al-Qaeda will thrive to have more false flags made as they’ve seen that Abu Ivanka al-Amerksi (Trump) was willing to strike any time he hears about chemical weapons :grin:)

Se requiere mayor difusión sobre este hecho, lamentablemente los medios occidentales les sirve de propaganda a los terroristas.
Esta noticia no se difunde, queda aislado sólo a Siria y algunos países.
