Militants Accuse Syrian Government Of Using Chlorine In Eastern Ghouta’s Douma (Video, Photos)

Donate

Pro-militant sources argue that government forces have launched at least 3 rockets with chlorine gas at the militant-held city of Douma in the Eastern Ghouta region, near the Syrian capital Damascus. According to reports, the rockets hit the western neighborhoods of the city and injured few people.

It’s interesting to note that the reports about the alleged chemical attack appeared after the Syrian Arab Army and its allies had achieved a notable success in the battle against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) in the province of Idlib.

Meanwhile, clashes between militant groups and government forces were also reported in the areas of Harasta and Hawsh al-Dawahirah in the Eastern Ghouta region.

The number of reports about civilian casualties and alleged chemical attacks will likely grow as the Syrian Army makes more progress against the so-called “moderate rebels” in the province of Idlib and the Damascus countryside.

    Why someone got the habit of conducting gas attack whenever it’s about to win ? Because it’s Assad order ? Think again.

  • Steven Fay

    Motar shells, fired from them homemade hell-cannon crap things, REBELS( TERRORISTS ) USE.

  • leon mc pilibin

    They just won’t give up on their lying BS,especially when they have a tranny rep in the UN ready to endorse their lies hoping for a Zionist US Intervention. That tranny abomination that represents israhellis first Nikki hately will do anything for its Zionist masters.

    • as

      Nikki Hately. Thumbs up 👍

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        Think “Hately” is short for “Hate-lately” problem it has been a daily occurrence since she opened here mouth at the UN and in the media.

  • Merijn

    Did these militants finish their kindergarten? Because if someone still thinks that we believe any of their stupid White Helmets, Chemical Gasattacks… Freedomfights & Caliphates…… you’re either crazy or a complete and utter idiot……shit’s gettin’ weirder by the day

    • Barba_Papa

      Maybe we’re not, but the mainstream media still seems gullible enough, or lazy enough to buy it. After all, they’ve heavily bought into the narrative that Assad = evil and rebels = good.

      • Ariel Cohen

        They haven’t bought into the big lie Barpa . . they have themselves created the lies and intentionally fomented them . .

        • John Whitehot

          true, although they normally are fed their news (on these subjects) by intelligence services.

          Like some CIA crook said : “The good thing about our job is that we don’t have to tell lies, because we create the truth”.

        • Barba_Papa

          I’m not that deep into conspiracy thinking, I’d like to at least give them the benefit of the doubt that they’re either too lazy to check their facts, or so naive that they fall for a simple narrative. And who doesn’t like poor freedom loving underdogs taking on a brutal dictator?

          • Ronald

            Except the freedom loving underdogs are actually Al Qaeda , and the dictator is actually a medical doctor . Truth is escaping and becoming known .

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Agree with them being Al Qaeda you forget is doctorate is in Opthalmology meaning an eye surgeon why he was recruited by the London Eye hospital.

          • Merijn

            If you are a journalist and tell the truth……. you can get your welfare check to feed your kids on a monthly basis from that moment on……and that’s not a threat…… it’s just a promise

        “..media still seems gullible..”

        Nahhhhh, just a handful infected with the deep CIA virus while the rest have never learned to think for themselves.

      Trump looks like not firing his Tomahawks like John Wayne this time since he made a fool of himself the last time.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      This one is by the Bellingcat’s team of Jihadists, the area has been geo located in an open field within a small village or town found photos online of the area. Eliot Higgins had put out a request on twitter for somebody to tell where the photos came from.

  • Joe

    Trump… quick quick fire tomahawks… quick quick.

  • David Pryce

    Jesus wept, I’m sure the Syrian army would have a better delivery system
    2016 it’s dated looks like it’s rusted in the field since these clowns tested it on themselves

  • John Mason

    Why would the Syrian government have English writing on the remnants. One would suspect that the Syrians would use their own language. One should not take seriously the word of terrorist who are criminals of the worst kind, in any court the word of a criminal is suspect.

    • Graeme Rymill

      Iranian 107mm rockets have English lettering on them.

      http://www.mindexcenter.ir/product/fadjr1-107mm-rocket

      English is apparently the international language of weapons manufacture. Even the Chinese put English language on their rockets.

      • Joe

        May have but not ,100%

        WESTERN SOURCED more likely

  • hvaiallverden

    Ah, gas, yeah, reminds me of the old saying, if you neeeed gas, eat beans.
    Thats where this belongs, smells like awaking up with an solid hangover, just an few feets away, in the vicinity of an out door village shit house, backed by the sun for 12 h, huh, in 250 Deg C. an camel is an Dior in comparison, and usually the smell good, dont they.

    Why on earth, should anyone use, things that worked in some few times during century’s, be used by an force that is winning the battle, nobody is That stupid, Wankees, this stinks so high heaven that the angels thinks they have had to much beans them self.

    But hey, fart on, its getting “better and better”, it only lacked an spotless, Iranian Passport, huh, slooooopy, somebody needs to be flogged, CIA, this is an new low.
    And the 800 p Gorilla in the Glass house, but naked with the congregation of mongrels howling for ever more wars, this, witch will be the next phase of this theater of the freaks.
    I am in awe already.

    peace

    Usual militant charade squarely aimed at western media. In reality it’s actually HTS that is well known for stockpiling chlorine hard pellets for use in their own manufactured mortar shells, and that 107mm rocket carcass could have been retrieved from anywhere in Syrian battlegrounds. Standard militant theatrics – as generally seen when their prospects are looking grim and they desperately need foreign assistance. Militants work on PR media-campaign of rinse and repeat, same staged performance.

    Again ? Well, these hypocritical, dishonest, biased people will not stop never, won’t they ? “WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION,” that is what USA said to justify the destruction of Irak.

      [The holocaust has been elevated above all other historical occurrences and is treated as an unquestionable truth – movies, books and documentaries are churned out on an industrial basis and the holocaust even has a dedicated international day of remembrance. Yet communist mass killings and genocides are largely ignored or even unheard of in the West, despite the fact that communism has killed over a 100 million people. I examine the political and social reasons for this and lay bare the hypocrisy and double standards employed by the establishment when it comes to genocide.]

  • Blaine

    Why are they labeled in English?

    • Ger

      The Americans have supplied everyone in the world with the weapons of mass destruction. Since the empires’ death merchants are well versed in english labeling, everyone else uses english so they can use captured ammo. If terrorist got their hands on a mortar shell with Farsi labeling, they might stick it up their a** by mistake.

  • Starlight

    A LAUGHABLE claim about the use of utterly USELESS weapons by an army with access to proper munitions- but WHY? Because the jewish propagandists that run the mainstream and fake indy media outlets know such claims play well with the ill-informed ‘chattering’ classes their propaganda is designed to influence.

    So the lying claim becomes a ‘primary source’- the method of all jewish controlled yellow journalism. Wikipedia will allow this event to be added as a ‘fact’ because of the ‘primary source’ rule.

    Meanwhile Southfront wastes its precious frontpage space with such nonsense so it has an ‘excuse’ not to cover Putin’s latest servile meeting with the no.1 jewish terrorist leader on the planet.

    You think Putin has ‘SAVED’ Syria? Think again. Putin ensured that Russia entered the conflict so late, the ‘threat’ posed by Syria to Israel was utterly eliminated. Had Putin intevened on day one, the amount of bloodshed needed to end the wahhabi threat would have been near zero. But Putin waited until the wahhabi gangs had ravaged Syria and set back that nation TWO DECADES+, just as the jews of Israel demanded.

    PS still waiting for Southfront to cover Ahed Tamimi. The filthy zionist BBC is covering the story today, and calling her resistance to the neo-nazi jews of Israel “terrorism”. Southfront chooses to remain silent.

      Russia was. Invited into Syria. Syria was never a threat to israel. If Russia and israeI played your rumoured game its gone badly cause Iranian hezbollah now reside in Syria

  • Toni Liu

    “…Pro-militant sources argue that government forces have launched at least 3 rockets with chlorine gas at the militant-held city of Douma in the Eastern Ghouta region, near the Syrian capital Damascus…”

    ‘Government forces’ are using fuel-air explosive-tipped IRAMs on them. They’re good at head-chopper extermination, especially in confined spaces. I think the US has claimed FAEs are more ‘humane’ because they can clear a few upper floors of a multi-story unit without using 10 tons of HE munitions and dropping the whole building. That’s only when we (the US) use them. If anyone else the US doesn’t like uses FAEs, then it’s obviously inhumane and a war crime.

    Chlorine is a residual contaminant in some forms of FAE fuel production reactions. Some percentage of FAE fuel does not burn or detonate in an explosion. If either the bursting charge or the secondary detonation charge failed, then you have 10m cloud of either evaporating or aerosolized FAE fuel. It would have to smell something like a combination of engine starting fluid and bleach, I imagine.

    Of course OPCW inspectors are always going to find some amount of residual chlorine at the sites. What they don’t test for or find is the FAE fuel, itself, because that’s not their job. Their mandate is to look for CWs, period. They don’t care how it got there.

    So someone printed “Rocket” on the thing in hollywood-english. Why not ACME POISON GAS? This is the sort of rocket that the Coyote would use against the Road-Runner. (excuse me Warner Bros.)

  • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

    This is so fake the rockets are old and remind me of the ones used by the terrorist in Aleppo rust on them is at least a year old damage on the sides from it being stored together. Where is his eye protection he would be teary if there was any faint odor in the area. Like the English lettering on the rocket is ridiculous, like how they dug the ground and buried something in it, ground all around is disturbed. This is an H.E. rocket typically used by airborne units of the US. Problem is what they are presuming those large metal pieces is the war head, it would need to be fired from a single launcher as the warhead wouldn’t fit in any tube.

    • Graeme Rymill

      “the English lettering on the rocket is ridiculous”

      No it it you, Field Marshall Tera Cotta Woolpuller, who is ridiculous – always pretending to be the expert in every field of military endeavour.

      Take a look at this Iranian web site http://www.mindexcenter.ir/product/fadjr1-107mm-rocket and then perhaps reflect for a second on your vast ignorance.
