Northern Syria: Terrorists, White Helmets Turn Demilitarized Zone into Chemical Depot
The Arabic-language website of Sputnik quoted well-informed sources as disclosing that the terrorists have distributed their chemical materials across the demilitarized zone in the militant-held regions in Idlib province since the conclusion of Sochi Agreement.
It further said that Tahrir al-Sham has systematically handed over their chemical materials to ISIL and other Asian-origin terrorist groups across different regions in Idlib province and also other regions mentioned as demilitarized zone by the Sochi Agreement.
The Arabic Sputnik went on to say that Tahrir al-Sham and the White Helmets have been misusing the ceasefire – declared by the Sochi Agreement for the sake of establishing a demilitarized zone in Northern and Northwestern Syria in the last two month – to form a network of small warehouses of chemical materials inside the demilitarized zone.
It went on to say that the terrorists intend to hide the chemical materials in different regions in the demilitarized zone to later use them in false-flag attacks near the contact lines with the Syrian army in Hama, Idlib, Aleppo and Lattakia provinces to blame the government forces and pave the ground for a military intervention by the western countries against Syria.
The news agency said that a false-flag chemical attack in Idlib will pave the way for certain world states to provide support for the Turkey-backed terrorist groups, including the Turkistan Islamic party, Uygur, Turkish and Arab militants that have been in Idlib for years and have not been included in the reconciliation process.
It further pointed to previous reports on the production of chlorine gas by the terrorists in Northern Syria under the supervision of foreign experts and via western technology.
Sputnik quoted unnamed sources as disclosing earlier this month that Tahrir al-Sham and Jeish al-Izzah terrorists arrested 29 of their own members and also 5 members of the White Helmets, accusing them of involvement in disclosing information about chemical weapons and poisonous gases, including their storage locations and transfer of them to new locations.
Tahrir al-Sham and Jeish al-Izzah set up a joint committee 3 days ago to investigate and find those behind the leak of chemical information.
Sputnik quoted another source as disclosing that Tahrir al-Sham and Jeish al-Izzah terrorists launched vast investigations to fine sources behind leaking information about the transfer of the chemical material cargos to different regions in Idlib province.
It further said that Tahrir al-Sham’s move came after terrorist groups held a meeting in Khan Sheikhoun in Southwestern Idlib to set up an investigation committee.
The Arabic Sputnik went on to say that the committee is responsible for questioning the terrorists and members of the pro-militant White Helmets Organization over the leaked information.
Different Arab media outlets have released reports about chemical activities of the terrorist groups in Idlib in recent months.
In the meantime, informed sources reported in late October that Jeish al-Izzah transferred 2 cylinders of Sarin and Chlorine gases from al-Latamina to Qala Maziq in Northwestern Hama to hand over them to allied militants of Ansar al-Tohid.
