Syrian Army Denies Using Chemical Weapons In Northern Lattakia, Vows To Continue Its Fight Against Terrorism

Coat of arms of the Syrian Arab Armed Forces

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has denied using any “chemical weapons” during its ongoing attack on the town of Kabani in northern Lattakia.

A military source told the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) in the afternoon of May 19 that the SAA General Command “denies this news in its entirety.”

“The General Command of the Army and the Armed Forces denies this news in its entirety and confirms that it is completely untrue, stressing at the same time that it will continue to fight and uproot terrorism until the last atom of Syrian soil is cleared,” the source said.

Earlier, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the former main branch of al-Qaeda in Syria, accused the Syrian army of launching three munitions armed with chlorine gas at its positions south of Kabani. The terrorist group weakened its own claims by revealing that no one was killed or even injured in the supposed “chemical attack.”

The Ministry of Defense of Russia had warned that HTS may stage attacks with chemical weapons, including chlorine. The most recent warning was issued two days ago.

Local observers believe that HTS faked the chemical attack to pressure the SAA into ending its military operation in northern Lattakia. In the last few days, the terrorist group lost dozens of its militants while trying to hold onto its remaining positions there.

    This could be connected with intercepted illuminated projectiles fired from Israeli controlled territories, Rami of the Observatory is claiming 3 more missiles fired from the Golan 2 hit Quneitra province one intercepted.

    While the usual suspects of Zionist propaganda are busy with the singing in queersvill Tel-Aviv a testing of defences is being carried out, if Assad is smart he will ignore these weak provocations and knuckle down on the Kurdish problum.

    One thing is certain, those who support the “professional terrorists” do not know how to lose. They only know how to win because they have money, power and weapons. The beginning of the end for them was in the areas East Ghouta and Douma. That’s where they lost everything. Propaganda from White Helmets failed. All the lies, the fake photos and the fake videos failed. They couldn’t make “black propaganda” because they don’t know about these things.They forgot there’s anti-propaganda too. You’re using the second one to hit the first.You wait for their mistake and then you hit them the same way. In Europe we know very well how the propaganda work. Their “bosses” give them guns and money…. But they can’t do the same propaganda again. That’s good for the Syrian army.White Helmets cannot lie about the Syrian army as they did in East Ghouta (they were lying about chemical weapons, chemical bombs and many other lies about their black propaganda).

    So stupid, chemical weapons are not a good offensive weapon because all the troops need chemical warfare suits. Like Syria can afford such luxuries after seven years of war.
    Most likely what happened, Kabani commander panicked, ordered chemical weapons used (note, defensive weapon) but either they misfired and put the defenders at risk, or an incoming projectile hit the site and released the gas. They managed to avoid injuries, but decided to blame it on SAA.
    The usual rubbish.
