Militants have launched a toxic gas attack near the international airport in the Syrian city of Aleppo, the Lebanon-based TV channel, Al Mayadeen TV, reported Sunday.

The report says that miliants used projectiles with poisonous gas during the artillery shelling of the Syrian army’s positions at the Aleppo international airport. At least 28 Syrian servicemen were reported injured.

Earlier this week, the Russian Defense Ministry announced that Russian military experts had found evidence that militants had used chemical weapons (chlorine and white phosphorus) in Aleppo city. The ministry send samples of soil and shell fragments found in Aleppo to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

Despite numerous reports of militants’ use of chemical weapons, the OPCW-UN Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM) expert panel keeps its line to blame the Syrian government for almost every chemical attack since the start of the war.

    I think, the SAA should take Marjeh. From both sides there are free plains, which makes the attack for djihadists difficult. After stabilisin situation in marjeh in 2nd phase take Bab nayrab. This would cut East Aleppo in 2 parts.

    SAA needs to create a barrier from Airport to Citadel and divide the east into blocks. Will need air support but blitz action not slow tempo take over to do that.

    Hanano Base to Citadel path also looks promising.
