Syria Accuses US, UK Of Supplying Toxic Agents to Terrorist Groups
 
 
 
August 16, 2017
 
 
 
The Syrian Foreign Ministry has accused the United Stated and Britain of supplying toxic chemical agents to terrorist groups operating in the war torn country.
 
On Wednesday the Syrian Foreign Ministry said that toxic agents found in Aleppo and Damascus were produced by one British and two American companies.
 
According to Syria's Deputy Foreign Minsiter Faisal Mekdad: "The special equipment found consisted of hand grenades and rounds for grenade launchers equipped with CS and CN toxic agents […] The chemical munitions were produced by the Federal Laboratories company in the US. The toxic agents were produced by Cherming Defence UK and NonLethal Technologies (US)"
 
Sputnik news reports: According to the deputy foreign minister, the poisonous substances were found in the storehouses of the militants in Aleppo and in the eastern suburbs of Damascus.
 
Mekdad noted that in accordance with Article 5 of the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons, the use of toxic agents is permitted only to combat riots. It is prohibited to use them in warfare.
 
"So, we can say for sure that the US and UK as well as its allies in the region violate the Chemical Weapons Convention. They support terrorist organizations operating in Syria. They deliver to the militants not only armaments but also prohibited toxic agents," the deputy foreign minister added.
 
It is not the first time such reports emerge. According to Fars News Agency in May local sources and eyewitnesses reported that a group of White Helmets' activists accompanied by one of the Arab satellite channels arrived in the area near Idlib in Syria to shoot staged videos allegedly depicting consequences of a chemical attack.
 
Swedish Doctors for Human Rights (SWEDHR) non-governmental organization issued a report earlier in the year, stating that the "lifesaving" procedures shown in the videos published by the White Helmets are incorrect, fake and "ultimately performed on dead children."
 
On April 4, a chemical weapons incident in Syria's Idlib province claimed the lives of some 80 people and inflicted harm on an additional 200 civilians. The Syrian National Coalition of Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, as well as a number of Western states, accused the Syrian government troops of carrying out the attack, while Damascus refuted these allegations, with a Syrian army source telling Sputnik that the army did not possess chemical weapons.

U.S. Launch Chemical Weapons Attack On Syria - Media Blackout

The U.S. has been caught launching a chemical weapons attack on a city in Syria with a population of 200,000 citizens. 
 
The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces dropped a cluster of airstrikes containing illegal chemicals on Syria last Tuesday, which was largely ignored by the mainstream media.
 
Thefreethoughtproject.com reports: While popular outlets such as Reuters reported that "as artillery and coalition aircraft pounded targets in the city, SDF fighters moved in small groups into the district," there were some key aspects they appeared to leave out.
 
International outlets and witnesses on Twitter noted that some of the airstrikes resembled cluster bombs or white phosphorus, both of which are internationally banned on residential areas.

Xinhua News, China's state press agency, reported that "Tens of civilians were killed on Thursday when the U.S.-led airstrikes targeted Syria's northern city of Raqqa with white phosphorus," citing a report from Syria's Sham FM radio.
 
Russia's Riafan.ru reported that "Coalition forces led by the United States of America shell Raqqa and suburbs of white phosphorus munitions," citing reports on Twitter, which said the U.S.-backed coalition conducted 20 air raids.
 
Although the total number of civilian deaths has not been confirmed, early reports suggest that nearly 50 people were killed. The U.S. has yet to acknowledge whether white phosphorus was used during the raids.
 
White phosphorus is described as an "incendiary and toxic chemical substance used as a filler in a number of different munitions that can be employed for a variety of military purposes."
 
The chemical was banned internationally after the 1980 Protocol on Incendiary Weapons restricted the "use of incendiary weapons as a means or method of warfare during armed conflict."
 
The use of chemical weapons is clearly prohibited in international armed conflicts. The International Committee of the Red Cross noted that "employing asphyxiating, poisonous or other gases, and all analogous liquids, materials or devices is listed in the Statute of the International Criminal Court as a war crime."
 
If the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces are successful in regaining control of Raqqa from ISIS, then the question remains of who will control the city moving forward. The SDF announced plans in April to run the city using a civilian council-with the help of more than 3,000 U.S. ground troops-which would further a divided Syria, and would keep the U.S. is at odds with Assad's government.
 
The same president who claimed to be heartbroken over the "innocent babies" who were reportedly killed in April in a chemical attack that was immediately blamed on Assad's government-despite evidence that suggested otherwise-has said nothing about the reports that suggest his country could be guilty of the same crime he condemned.
 
While it is not likely that the United States will fully address the reports, it should be noted that by remaining silent, the mainstream media is also reminding the public of its hypocritical nature.
 
The same MSM that provides obsessive coverage of everything President Trump posts on Twitter, has seemingly ignored the flurry of Tweets from various users suggesting the use of chemical weapons by a U.S.-backed coalition.

ISIS has tested deadly chemical weapons on prisoners in Nazi-style human guinea pig experiments, as part of a plant to contaminate Britain's food supplies.
 
According to hidden documents at Mosul University discovered by Iraqi special forces, ISIS have used 'human guinea pigs' to test two chemical agents - resulting in the death of the prisoners.
 
Muslimpress.com reports: British and US forces have verified the records as bona fide Isis papers.
 
They document experiments on prisoners using pesticides and nicotine.
 
The nightmarish scenario is reminiscent of trials conducted by evil Nazi doctor Josef Mengele on concentration camp inmates during World War 2.
 
Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, a British chemical weapons expert, described Isis testing to the Times on humans as "almost holocaust type".
 
He said: "This is a horrifying throwback to the Nazis who would test nerve agents on live humans.
 
"During the Second World War, the Nazis conducted thousands of deadly experiments with mustard gas on prisoners at Sachsenhausen concentration camp, near Berlin."

False Flag: UN Confirmed Syrian Rebels, Not Assad, Were Using Sarin

Obama and Trump have blood on their hands. Washington is lying to you about the chemical weapons attack in Syria, using it as "false flag".
 
Obama and Trump have blood on their hands. Washington and the mainstream media are lying to you about the chemical weapons attack in Syria, using it as "false flag" - a fake justification to wage an illegal war of aggression. 
 
In 2013 the United Nations issued a report confirming that Syrian opposition rebels (ISIS and Al-Qaeda, supported by Washington) "may have used chemical weapons against Syrian government forces."
 
At the same time, Assad's Syrian government called on the United Nations and international observers to come and inspect the sites in which it was found that the rebels had used chemical weapons, including sarin gas. This call was not answered.
 
The UN report from 2013 refutes Washington's allegations that the government of Bashar al-Assad was using chemical weapons against his own people. The history of chemical weapons usage in Syria lies solely with rebels.
 
Global Research reports: What the UN mission findings confirm is that the US sponsored opposition "rebels" largely composed of Al Qaeda affiliated groups, financed and supported by the Western military alliance were responsible for these 2013 chemical weapons attacks.
 
Moreover, as confirmed in an earlier report, the Al Qaeda rebels were being trained in the use of chemical weapons by specialists on contract to the Pentagon.
 
Washington (which supports the opposition rebels in the use of chemical weapons) rather than Damascus is responsible for extensive crimes against humanity.
 
syria-ISIS-chemical-weapons
 
According to the United Nations 2013 mission led by Carla del Ponte:
 
"evidence from casualties and medical staff indicated that rebel forces in the civil war had used the deadly nerve agent sarin.
 
'Our investigators have been in neighbouring countries interviewing victims, doctors and field hospitals, and there are strong, concrete suspicions, but not yet incontrovertible proof, of the use of sarin gas,' said Del Ponte in an interview with Swiss-Italian television.
 
'This was use on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities.'
 
Last night, the UN commission looking into allegations of war crimes in Syria tried to row back on the comments by its human rights investigator, pointing out that conclusive evidence had not been discovered.
 
However, the White House said it was likely that President Bashar al-Assad's regime, not the rebels, were behind any chemical weapons use. …
 
Sarin has been classed as a weapon of mass destruction due to its potency and is banned under international law.
 
US President Barack Obama has said that the use or deployment of chemical weapons in Syria would cross a 'red line' that could lead to foreign military intervention. …
 
The comments by Ms Del Ponte, a member of the U.N. panel probing alleged war crimes in Syria, contradict claims by Britain and the U.S. that intelligence reports showed Syrian soldiers had used chemical weapons.
 
She said that the United Nations independent commission of inquiry on Syria has not yet seen evidence of government forces having used chemical weapons, which are banned under international law. (See Daily Mail Online, May 6, 2013)

US-backed Rebels Caught Using Mustard Gas On Syrians
 
 
 
 
19 December 2016.
 
 
 
 
 
Syrian authorities have urged the international community to intervene after US-backed rebels were caught illegally using mustard gas on civilians.
 
According to the government in Syria, a batch of documents proving that chemical weapons were used against Syrian citizens was handed over to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) on December 12.
 
Authorities also delivered samples from the shell containing mustard gas to The Hague.
 
RT.com reports:
 
"We have provided all the documents to the mission, they were vetted and accepted. The mission will come to Syria one more time to collect samples, which will be subsequently analyzed," said Samer Abbas, spokesman for the Syrian National Authority monitoring the implementation of the Chemical Weapons Convention, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement.
 
The samples are expected to be delivered to The Hague, the site of the OPCW headquarters, by a charter flight in January next year. The samples will be stored in Syria until all financial difficulties linked to their transportation to Europe will be solved.
 
The mortar shell with the chemical was recovered near the village of Maarat Umm Hawsh in Aleppo province on November 16 by Russian experts, who were demining the area. Upon closer inspection, the unexploded crude homemade 240-mm round was found to contain dark liquid.
 
Russian chemical experts took samples and confirmed that the agent in question was mustard gas. The poisonous substance was widely used during the WWI-era and has been outlawed since 1923.
 
The shell is believed to have been used in a September 16 attack on the village, in which over 40 civilians were injured, and later treated in the Yusuf al-Azma military hospital in Damascus for symptoms of mustard gas poisoning.
 
In November, the Russian military handed over all the evidence concerning the attack, including the samples to the Syrian authorities. At the time, the Defense Ministry said that the evidence suggested the gas was homemade rather than supplied by a third party, but did not rule out the possibility.
 
Officers from the Russian Radiological, Chemical and Biological Defense troops in Syria previously produced evidence of chlorine and white phosphorus usage by militants in Aleppo province. In November, the Russian Defense Ministry reported that the expert found "nine selected samples which confirmed [that the terrorists] had used chlorine and white phosphorus munitions to fill their ammunition." The traces of the agents were on the fragments of mines, shells and soil from the craters to the southwest of Aleppo, Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said.
 
Russia has repeatedly called on OPCW specialists to participate in the studying of the samples collected by the Russian experts, pointing to instances of use of banned substances by the militants in east Aleppo, then under rebel control, against civilians in the western neighborhoods.
 
"Russian specialists found that militants in eastern Aleppo used ammunition with poisonous substances, with the ammo targeting western Aleppo. The collected samples leave no doubt that it's a toxic agent," Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in late November. He also blamed OPCW's lack of action on the matter to the "tremendous pressure" it endures "from our Western partners."
 
Rick Sterling, a member of the Syria Solidarity movement, told RT that the new evidence might prove what serious probes into chemical use in Syria showed years ago.
 
"Basically, there have been many allegations of chemical use by the Syrian government; it's been used for numerous years to demonize the Syrian government. When there have been serious investigations, for example, in spring 2013, the UN official Carla del Ponte said that the evidence pointed to the rebels having used it, despite Western media claiming that it was clearly the Syrian government. There have been numerous accusations that the Syrian government used chlorine gas, including the times when the chlorine gas manufacturing plant was actually controlled by Nusra. So, there's been a steady stream of accusations against the Syrian government, and it's good to see this emerging," he said.

Terrorists Use Chemical Weapons in Syria's Aleppo Again
 
 
 
9 November 2016.
 
 
 
Terrorist groups, once again, attacked the government-held districts of Aleppo with poisonous gas to slow down army forces' advances in the Southwestern parts of the city, informed sources said Wednesday.
 
Local media quoted sources as saying that the militants shelled government troops with improvised mortars filled with Chlorine gas during the battles which took place recently to control two strategic hilltops.
 
The terrorist groups have used chemically armed weapons against the civilian population in Aleppo several times in the last two months..
 
Last week, Syrian state news agency cited a medical source in Aleppo's General Hospital as saying that since the attacks by terrorists on Menyan district in Western Aleppo at least eight chemically wounded people with suffocation symptoms were brought to the hospital.
 
Five people were killed last Thursday and scores were injured in attacks by terrorists with chemically-armed shells and mortar rounds on government-held neighborhoods in Western Aleppo.
 
According to local reports, terrorists targeted the neighborhoods of Halab al-Jadida, al-Moukambou, al-Masharqa and the surrounding streets of the Literature Faculty in al-Furqan neighborhood with shells and explosive bullets, killing five people and injuring 46 others including an Al-Alam TV cameraman.
 
This is not the first time that terrorists in Aleppo used toxic gases against the civilians as a senior Syrian army commander, earlier this week, reported that the terrorists have launched chemical attacks on the civilians in Aleppo.

Russia finds evidence of mustard gas attack in Syria
 
 
 
 
25 November 2016.
 
 
 
 
 
The experts analyzed an unexploded projectile found in the village of Ma'arat Umm Hawsh in Northern Aleppo in September.
 
Russian military experts have obtained evidence that mustard gas was used against civilians in the Syrian province of Aleppo, experts with Russia's Troops of Radiological, Chemical and Biological Defense announced Friday.

OPCW says ready to receive from Russia samples of chemicals used as weapons in Syria
 
 
 
The experts analyzed an unexploded projectile found in the village of Ma'arat Umm Hawsh in Northern Aleppo in September. It contained up to 1.5 liters of an unknown black oily liquid.
 
"An express analysis of its content by a portable infrared spectrometer revealed the presence of a chemical warfare blister agent known as yperite, or mustard gas," the experts said.
 
After samples were taken, the projectile was securely sealed and brought to a lab in the Russian Reconciliation Center in Aleppo for further study.
 
The September attack left more than 40 people injured. Some of the victims described symptoms similar to the use of mustard gas, banned since 1923.
 
Previously, Russian experts obtained evidence of the use of chlorine and white phosphorus in attacks in Syria.

Russia: Chemical Weapons Used By US-Backed Rebels Against Syrians
 
 
 
 
22 November 2016.
 
 
 
 
Russia has proof that US-backed rebels in Syria used chemical weapons
 
Russia say they have evidence that US-backed rebels have been using chemical weapons against Syrians in Aleppo and claim the UN are doing nothing about it. 
 
Experts from the Russian Defense Ministry have evidence that terrorists used chlorine and white phosphorus in Area '1070' in the southwestern suburbs of Aleppo.
 
"Russian specialists found that militants in east Aleppo used ammunition with poisonous substances, with the ammo targeting west Aleppo. The collected samples leave no doubt that it's a toxic agent," Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said at a press conference.
 
Farsnews.com reports:
 
However, when the Russian Ministry of Defense addressed the leadership of the UN watchdog OPCW "with the demand to urgently send its experts to Aleppo to participate in the sample analysis," the organization "refused to carry out this simple task, citing security issues."
 
The underlying reason behind this, Lavrov said, seemed to be "tremendous pressure from our Western colleagues," because "our and Syrian sides guaranteed security for the experts."
 
Russia is now working on the possibility of delivering the samples for analysis to The Hague, Lavrov added.
 
"It will make it hard for them to back out," the minister said, as quoted by TASS.
 
Lavrov's statement comes a day after the Ministry of Defense spoke about the evidence of chemical attacks by militants, and stressed that the OPCW was refusing to cooperate.
 
Ministry spokesperson Major General Igor Konashenkov said that Russian experts collected bioassays from four Syrians injured in the attacks, and made the shocking discovery earlier this month.
 
In fact, Russian top brass has been warning since September that the militants might use chemical weapons against civilians in Aleppo, and in October, Syrian state media reported toxic gas having been used against a government-held area in the city.
 
Fifteen people were injured back then, and a local doctor told RT that the symptoms could be those observed after the use of chlorine gas.
