TEHRAN (FNA)- Terrorist groups in Syria are preparing a provocation with use of chemical weapons in the country’s Dara’a province on analogy with May attack in Idlib, a diplomatic source said.
“Terrorists will blow up multiple ammunition filled with poisoning materials in near future in one of the regions in Dara’a province. The provocation will be carried out on analogy with the situation in Idlib in the beginning of 2017,” the source told Sputnik.
The information about the plans was reportedly obtained from authorized sources in the political and military leadership of Syria. The recent statements by the White House concerning a potential chemical attack and a warning that if Syrian President Bashar al-Assad conducted another chemical attack on civilians, both “he and his military” would pay a heavy price, has become an essential motivation for the terrorists, the source added.
According to the source, the Russian side warned the US-led coalition against the ISIL terrorist group on June 29 about terrorists’ plans to stage provocation with the use of chemical weapons in Syria’s Dara’a.
