HTS Claims Syrian Army Targeted Its Members In Northern Lattakia With “Chlorine Gas”

The former branch of al-Qaeda in Syria, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), claimed on May 19 that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) had targeted its members in the northern Lattakia countryside with munitions armed with what it claimed to be “chlorine gas.”

“The militia of the criminal regime … targeted the Al-Murabitin’s [Islamic term for fighters] positions on the hill of Kabani with three missiles loaded with poisonous chlorine, after a failed attempt to advance on the same axis,” the terrorist group’s news network, Iba’a, said in a press release.

HTS went on to say that nobody was killed or even injured in the supposed chlorine gas attack, without explaining how any human can survive such a toxic material without any damage.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is currently carrying out a military operation in the northern Lattakia countryside, with the aim of capturing the strategic town of Kabani. Terrorist groups, including HTS, are occupying the town and launching rockets from it on the Russian Hmeimim airbase.

In the last three days, the SAA killed dozens of HTS fighters in northern Lattakia and destroyed most of the group’s defenses south of Kabani. The terrorist group may have come up with the chemical attack claims in order to justify its loses.

The Ministry of Defense of Russia had warned that HTS possesses chemical weapons, including chlorine, and would use them to stage attacks. The most recent warning was issued two days ago.

    Terrorists shouldn’t expect mercy when its attack on them, whither its nuclear,phosphor,chemical, sword,spear or a arrow.

    Must’ve been because they were hiding in a children’s hospital.

    This is becoming boring. One would think they could be a bit more creative with false flags.

      It’s basically the only one they got though. They know the US isn’t going to come riding in for the rescue of Al Qaida. Playing the chemical attack card is basically the only one they still have that might do the trick.

      Not that it matters one damn bit. They pulled that stunt in East Ghouta, is there still a Al Qaida and Friends enclave in East Ghouta today? If anything if they had put all that effort to fake that attack into holding on for a few more days and kill a few more SAA troops they would have done more damage to the SAA then those American cruise missiles did.

    Yeah right. Either they tried to use them themselves and failed, or an SAA projectile lit up their CW storage.
    “The nasty SAA is using our own chemical weapons against us!”
    STFU!
