Turkish Chemical Weapons Experts Cooperating with Terrorists to Eliminate Evidence of Aleppo Attack

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Turkish Army’s chemical-biological weapons experts are in regions in Northern Syria where Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) recently launched chemical attack on Aleppo city’s Northwestern neighborhoods, local sources reported on Friday.

The sources said that Turkey is trying hard to clean up the area’s soil and buildings from any poisonous gas residuals before the arrival of a delegation from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in the region.

Last week, the Al-Nusra terrorists launched a gas attack on Northwestern neighborhoods of Aleppo city, poisoning 107 civilians.

In the meantime, sources close to the militant groups said the recent gas attack on Aleppo by Tahrir Al-Sham Hayat indicates that Turkey cannot at all control the terrorist group.

The Arabic-language Al-Watan newspaper quoted sources close to Nouralddeen al-Zinki terrorist group as saying that Tahrir al-Sham terrorists were responsible for the chlorine gas attack on residential areas in Aleppo.

“The attacks on Aleppo’s residential areas were done by rockets and shells that had been chemically armed by White Helmets,” the sources said.

The sources noted that Tahrir al-Sham’s chemical attacks were launched from the demilitarized zone specified under the Sochi agreement.

The attacks from the demilitarized zone display that Ankara had no control over the terrorist groups operating in zone, and failed to hold up its end of the bargain.

In a relevant development on Sunday, Syrian Foreign Ministry said that the Aleppo chlorine shelling was made possible because Western countries had been supplying weapons to militants so that they staged chemical attacks.

Damascus went on to call on the United Nations to take measures regarding the militants who attacked Aleppo and the states that were supporting them, Sputnik reported.

Syria’s comments came after on Saturday, militants based North of Aleppo fired chlorine-loaded shells at the city’s al-Khalidiye neighborhood. Militants also shelled the neighborhoods of al-Khalidiye and Al Zahraa as well as the Nile Street, causing at least 65 people to be delivered to hospitals over difficulties with breathing.
