The terrorists to launch an attack with toxic agents in the southern part of Syria, all the latest developments
The terrorists of the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham group are preparing provocations with the use of toxic agents in the southern part of the Idlib region, the deputy head of the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of the Warring Parties in Syria said in a briefing. Rear Admiral Alexander Grinkevich.”The Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Parties to the Conflict in Syria has received information on the preparation by the terrorist group Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham for provocations with the use of toxic agents in the southern part of the Idlib de-escalation zone,” Grinkevich said.
The deputy head of the Center added that, according to the information available, the terrorists plan to hold the scripted shooting in the Mount Zawiya area. The terrorists will do that with the participation of foreign media reporters for the subsequent dissemination of the images on the internet, press in the Middle East, and the West, to then accuse the Syrian government of using chemical weapons against the civilian population.Syria has repeatedly rejected allegations of using chemical weapons after destroying them as part of a Russian-brokered deal with the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPAC) in 2013.
The Damascus government had several times accused the militants of the organization of attacks with the use of toxic substances, which were later used by Western forces to justify military activities on Syrian territory.On Tuesday morning, a drone-launched missile strike in Northwestern Syria killed an unspecified number of jihadist militiamen.
The National Observatory for Human Rights in Syria reports that the air attack was carried out by an unidentified aircraft, probably of the US-led anti-Isis Coalition, in the city of Idlib, in the Qusur district.A US helicopter crashed in Syria’s north-eastern province of Al-Hasakah, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported Tuesday, citing local sources. According to media reports, a US Army helicopter crashed near the village of Tel Haddad near Al-Ya’rubiyah. The type of helicopter and the cause of the accident are still unknown.
According to SANA news agency, the crash site is controlled by US armored vehicles. It is not immediately clear what caused the accident. Since 2014, the US-led coalition has conducted operations against Daesh in Syria without a UN mandate or the authorization of Damascus.
The Syrian government has repeatedly denounced Washington’s military presence in the Middle Eastern country as illegal.The armed conflict in Syria has been ongoing since 2011. At the end of 2017, victory over the Islamic State terrorist group in Syria and Iraq was announced. In some areas of Syrian territory, the war against terrorists continues.
