Militants used chemical weapon against Syrian Army — footage from Idlib (VIDEO) | Русская весна

A video was published showing the use of chemical weapons by terrorists against the soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army.

Some time before the Arab media reported that on January 15, 2018 in the south of the province of Idlib, in the districts of Umm Halahil and Niha, terrorists used chlorine gas. As a result, 140 SAR soldiers were found to have symptoms of poisoning, namely: perspiration, choking, skin irritation, severe coughing. All victims were provided with timely medical assistance.

On the video you can see white cloud spreading over positions of the army.

Then the Syrian military, who photographed the moment of the attack, tries to explain in his own panic what is happening in his own words, mentioning the blow of artillery, the spread of gas and one dead person.

On this fact, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that some Western countries prefer to turn a blind eye to the facts of manufacturing and use of chemical weapons by militants in Syria and Iraq, which contradicts several resolutions of the UN Security Council.

"Over the past three years, we have repeatedly proposed the adoption of a UN Security Council resolution, or at least a statement by its chairman condemning specific acts of" chemical "terrorism in Syria and Iraq. Unfortunately, all our proposals have invariably met with stiff resistance from a number of Western colleagues who prefer to turn a blind eye to the facts of the use and even the manufacture of chemical weapons by terrorists, make unfounded accusations against Damascus, "Lavrov said.

"The policy of double standards" remains the main approach of the West, they always blame Russia and the government of Bashar Assad for all sins, but when the militants' cases are revealed, there should be no resonance. The UN stably keeps silent about the use of chemical weapons by bandit formations and the perpetrators are never condemned by international structures.

At the same time, the US and their faithful dogs from the OPCW, the UN, Europe, etc. regularly accuse Russia and Syria of all sorts of crimes, without bothering to provide real evidence.
