Russian officials have evidence that a Syrian airstrike hit a chemical weapons storage facility run by the US-NATO backed terrorists. The Russian defense ministry claimed on its Facebook page that a Syrian airstrike strike hit “workshops, which produced chemical warfare munitions” in the eastern outskirts of Khan Sheikhoun on April 4, 2017.
According to a British physician, Dr. Sharjul Islam, the chemical was Organophosphate. Dr. Islam was personally on the scene and examining patients as they were rushed into the hospital near Khan Sheikhoun. He ruled out Chlorine as the cause, and he observed the pinpoint pupils in the patients, which led him to his expert diagnosis of Organophosphate, which is used as insecticides, medications, and nerve agents.
The British doctor was fired from his post at the National Health Service in UK after being arrested and accused of kidnapping two Western journalists in 2012. Since then he has been in Syria treating Radical Islamic terrorists. Dr. Shajul Islam, then 28, and a second man, Jubayer Chowdhury, then 24, were the only British jihadists charged with kidnapping Westerners in Syria as of 2012.
The Syrian military has been making headway and gaining more territory almost daily, in addition to substantial reconciliation agreements between armed terrorists and the government, whereby armed fighters are safely allowed to leave the area they had forcibly occupied. There was no motive for the Syrian military to use chemical attack on Khan Sheikhoun, in fact this attack is being viewed as an attack on the Syrian government itself, who are being blamed for deaths and injuries as a result of hitting the terrorist’s stockpile of chemicals.
This is not the first time the terrorists have used chemical weapons on civilians. In March 2013 the village of Khan Assal near Aleppo was gassed with Chlorine, with deaths and injuries resulting. In August 2013 they used Sarin gas in East Ghouta and made a famous video which was shown around the world. The UN investigation never placed blame, and eye witness testimony placed the blame on the terrorists. A UK defense lab reported to the then US President Obama that the Sarin gas used was not from the Syrian government, which led him to stop the planned attack on Syria.
Shortly after the incident in Khan Sheikhoun, a suspiciously well timed piece from the White Helmets founder was published in Britain’s Guardian newspaper, urging EU leaders not to reach any kind of deal with the Syrian government during peace talks in Brussels. The attack coincided with a two-day meeting in Brussels on Syria’s future. Delegates at the conference in Brussels, including UN Secretary General António Guterres, said there was an urgent need to find a political solution in Syria.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s military has denied using chemical weapons and blamed “terrorist” groups for the carnage.
“Based on the reports, it might be that the Syrian Army targeted a place that was used as a chemical weapons factory or that stocked chemicals by the rebels,” Jamal Wakeem, a professor of history and international relations at the Lebanese University in Beirut, told RT.
In a strange prophesy, or careless slip of the tongue, Syrian journalist Feras Karam, who writes for the Syrian opposition website Orient News, reported hours before the chemical attack occurred in Khan Sheikhoun, that he was mounting a media campaign exposing chemical attacks. This admission led to replies wondering if he was part of a conspiracy with foreknowledge of the attack.
