April 5, The Iran Project – Terrorists and Western-Arabic media formed a new plot, falsely claiming that Russian and Syrian armies were involved in a suspected chemical attack in Syria’s northwestern Idlib Province that killed dozens of innocent people.
In response, the Syrian military categorically denied using any poisonous gas in Khan Shaykhun or any other Syrian city or village, blaming the use of chemical weapons on Syria’s opposition and those who support them.
Syria’s terrorist groups and their foreign supporters leveled false accusations against Syrian army following “considerable achievements by the Syrian Arab army and the allied forces in the war against terrorism during the previous days and weeks,” and on the eve of the European Union meeting on the situation in Syria, said Syria’s Foreign Ministry in a separate statement on Tuesday,
Moreover, just after the United States and its allies rushed to accuse Syrian government forces of carrying out “a chemical attack” in the province, the Russian Defense Ministry’s Spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said Syrian Air Force recently hit a depot used by militants to make and store ammunition, including chemical weapons, in the Arab country’s northeastern Idlib Province.
Konashenkov added that from this major arsenal, chemical-laden weapons were delivered by militants to Iraq. Their use by terrorists was confirmed on numerous occasions by international organizations and official authorities of the country,”
Meanwhile, Syria’s Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad told pan-Arab Mayadeen TV that the rebels who are supported by France, Britain, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia were the ones carrying the chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun.
He also said that his country has fulfilled all of its commitments toward the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).
The Syrian official also urged the international community to hold accountable the parties behind the attack.
