Popular Forces Seize Terrorists’ Chemicals Warehouse in Aleppo
The Kurdish-language Hawar news reported that the Kurdish Fighters found a warehouse of chemicals used for building weapons in Ba’eidin neighborhood Northeast of Aleppo city.
Hawar news added that a plaque was also found in the warehouse which read in both Turkish and Arabic languages ‘Turkish-European Campaign to collect aid for Turkmen’. “And this proves that the terrorists were Turkmen militants and the Turkish flags prove that the chemicals have been supplied by Turkey,” the report stated.
Head of the Chief Operations Directorate of Russia’s General Staff told reporters on Wednesday that experts of the Russian Defense Ministry had started to examine possible chemical weapons production sites in Aleppo.
“Upon the Syrian government’s request, experts of the Russian Defense Ministry will examine the places where the militants could have produced chemical weapons,” said Sergei Rudskoi.
He added that the experts would also provide assistance to Aleppo residents
According to Rudskoi, two weeks ago, experts from Russia’s nuclear, biological and chemical protection troops confirmed that militants had used a homemade chemical bomb against civilians in the province of Aleppo. The bomb contained a poisonous substance reminiscent of mustard gas.
“The bomb was examined, the results have been handed over to the Syrian state body supervising the implementation of the Chemical Weapons Convention,” Rudskoi said.
