BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has uncovered a tunnel that is filled with chemical hazard equipment and weapons inside the town of Khan Sheikhoun.

Video footage captured by the Union News channel shows the Syrian Army inside the cave and combing through the contents that were left behind by the militant forces and White Helmets.

According to the Syrian Army, the cave was used by the White Helmets to “fabricate’ chemical attacks”, citing the equipment found in this former base as proof.

On April 4th, 2017, the militant forces, then in control of Khan Sheikhoun, accused the Syrian military of using chemical weapons during an aerial attack over the city.

The Syrian Arab Army and Russian Armed Forces denied the allegations, but the U.S. administration made the decision to launch an attack on the Shayrat Airbase in response to claims.

The Syrian government maintains the attack was fabricated by the White Helmets, while the opposition says this one of many chemical attacks carried out by the military.

It proves nothing. The west will just say the Syrians and Russians put it there too frame the moderate peace loving rebels and honorable white helmets. They will never admit their bombing ( UKFRUS ) was wrong or misguided. No doubt if they have western / NATO marking then Iran took them off Iraq and used them which shows the need too attack Iran . Wonder why marg never thought of that one..

Yeah, seeing the discovery of chemical weapons in recently liberated areas like Eastern Ghouta and Aleppo in what was clearly terrorist arsenals…. Nonetheless I was hoping the SAA would find an arsenal of chemical weapons when I heard that Khan Sheikhoun was liberated.

Still could, the rats fled quickly. You can search no further than their cell phones as these guys love to stream their dirty deeds.

It proves plenty – “belongs to HM Government”!
But you’re right in that it won’t change much, west will deny it and put a lid on MSM. And btw, the official acronym is not UKFRUS but FUKUS! Remember that!

It is very likely that the armed opposition staged chemical attacks. However, this looks fabricated. Why, did the wash the thing exlicitly for the filming? How can it look like that in a tunnel?
