Media reports had said in September that Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at and pro-militants White Helmet Organization intend to stage a false flag chemical attack in Northern and Northwestern Hama and would make a fake video to raise allegation against Damascus forces.
Also in the same month, similar reports said that a number of unidentified gunmen attacked a depot of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at in Idlib province and stole their chemical gas cylinders.
The Arabic-language website of Sputnik quoted well-informed sources as reporting that a number of unknown assailants stormed an arms depot of Tahrir al-Sham and stole several sarin and chlorine gas cylinders after killing four guards.
It further said that Idlib has been witnessing a growing wave of tensions and infighting among rival terrorist groups in recent months.
The report further said that terrorists of Soqour al-Sham and other allies of Tahrir al-Sham have engaged in fresh tensions, adding that they were forced to relocate their military hardware from the town of Jajanaz East of Ma’arat al-Nu’aman to Jabal al-Zawiyeh in Southern Idlib.
