Poison gas has once again been used by terrorists during an offensive on the south-west of Aleppo.
Militants have once again used poison gas during an offensive of terrorists on the south-west of Aleppo, the Izvestiya newspaper reported, citing an employee of the central city hospital.
According to the health worker, people with poisoning were taken to the Al-Jami hospital from the area of New Aleppo. The number of victims is not specified.
On October 30, militiamen also reported about the usage of chemical weapons by terrorists in Aleppo. Militants used home-made missiles with poison gas. As a result of the attack, at least one person was killed, while 30 others were wounded.
Meanwhile, spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, said that terrorist groups in the Syrian city of Aleppo used humanitarian pauses to regroup and replenish their arsenal. She also added that the situation in Syria is very serious.
“Militants of the Islamic State (IS), Jabhat Fateh al-Sham [previously known as the Al-Nusra Front] terrorist organizations and similar groups managed to use a humanitarian pause that was valid from October 20 to October 23. They regrouped, replenished their arsenals,” Zakharova said.
According to the representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, then militants tried to break through the defense of government troops. From October 28 to October 30, they have been conducting a large-scale offensive in western Aleppo.
However, the Russian Defense Ministry has once again announced another humanitarian pause in Aleppo, which will come into force on November 4. Amid the last actions of terrorists, a logical question arises – why does the Defense Ministry introduce humanitarian pauses, if they have so negative impact on the situation in the city?
