The situation in Syria, particularly in Aleppo, was exacerbated after the increase in activity of opposition groups after a week of ceasefire. Thus, according to a source in the Syrian army, just a few days ago in the province of Idlib field commanders of militant groups Jabhat Fateh al-Sham and Jund al-Aqsa held a meeting where they discussed the issue about transfer of eight rockets filled with chlorine and other toxic chemicals to Jund al-Aqsa.
According to the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command, militants are also planning to load the shells for homemade rocket systems with chlorine. The aim of terrorists is to carry out a chemical attack on the positions of government troops near Ma’an and Qamhana in Hama province. It will allow the militants of “Jund al-Aqsa” to develop the offensive and divert government troops from other directions. They are also planning to carry out strikes on civilian houses to accuse the Syrian army or its air force in applying of prohibited weapons.
August 2, Syria’s mass media reported that terrorists of ISIS used chemical weapon in the center of Aleppo. According to this information, as a result of the use of poisonous gas five people were killed, eight people were injured as a result of the shells with poison substances.
It stands to mention that neither the UN nor the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons have not reacted to the terrorists’ presence of chemical weapons yet as if that threat doesn’t require any immediate attention and response from the international organizations.
Washington also refuses to comment on the cases of use of chemical weaponry by militants. However, the US State Department whenever possible accuses the Syrian government army in use of missiles equipped with chemical agents. It is obvious that the United States is trying to cast a shade on the success of the Syrian army.
