In the late hours of November 24th militants launched several rockets containing chlorine gas at residential areas in the northern part of Aleppo city, according to Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA). 107 civilians reportedly suffered asphyxiation, including many women and children.

These attacks came a few days after SANA reported that French militants arrived in Idlib to equip shells and rockets of local groups with toxic gas. They entered the country through the border with Turkey.

In its first response to the chemical attack, the SAA shelled several positions of the militants in the western Aleppo countryside and the southeastern Idlib countryside. It is possible that the chemical attack may become the tipping point which, would force the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to kick off a military operation in the area.

Furthermore, a Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham unit attempted to attack several SAA positions in northern Hama from the direction of al-Lataminah. However, the SAA repelled the infiltration attempt.

Earlier Syrian and Lebanese sources reported the SAA and its allies are preparing to launch a large-scale military operation against the remaining militants in northwestern Syria. before the end of 2018. Considering the recent escalation, this development has become highly likely.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) also continue their allegedly successful efforts against ISIS in Deir Ezzor province. On November 23rd, the US-backed group announced that it had repelled ISIS attacks on their positions around the town of Hajin in the Euphrates Valley. US-led coalition warplanes assisted in the repelling and carried out 10 airstrikes on positions, gatherings and vehicles. The SDF media center claimed 27 terrorists were killed.

On November 24th, ISIS Amaq news agency reported that ISIS militants launched attacks on the SDF between the towns of al-Susah and Hajin. An ISIS commander said that hat more than 32 SDF fighters were killed and many others were captured, a Humvee and loads of weapons were also seized. Syrian outlets reported that ISIS fighters had imposed control of large parts of the town of al-Bahrah during the attack. Despite that, the SDF media center continues to report that all is under control and pretend that the situation around Hajin is in its favor.

    Not a peep from anyone important about the CW attack, it’s because they’re too busy making sure the next statement they make about this incident doesn’t make them look, either stupid, or equally as bad, a terrible liar. We may hear a few say, Assad must have let the CW fall into rebel hands’ but that will be the extent of it, and only from the worst warmongers. The Russians will be busy now trying to trace the chemical signature back to it’s point of origin/manufacture, from there they’ll try and work out who’s hands it went through to get to Syria.
    The SAA offensive in Idlib/Hama/Latakia won’t start until Erdogan’s pulled all his forces out of the area, a few more days to a week, maybe 2 at most.
    739 Isis KIA, 452 SDF KIA, and 300 civilians murdered by US bombing over the last few months at Hajin. These estimates may not be entirely 100% correct, but up until a few days ago, would probably be very close to the real numbers.
    Over the last few days the numbers would have grown considerably though, due to the very heavy fighting there I’m going to add 10% for Isis, add 20% for SDF and add 30% for the civilians , I’m just guessing now but I think the numbers would look more like this now, 812 Isis KIA, 542 SDF KIA, and 390 civilians. I’m being very generous too when I only add 20% for the SDF, if I were to add what Isis claims, I’d have to had to add another 20% too, giving them a 40% increase and making their KIA over 632. Isis don’t usually lie about casualties figures, maybe I should have used their estimates.

    It’s a shame turkey can’t control its terror allies even with Turkish Miltary observers right beside them. Who is in the Turkish army? Keystone cops?

    So which western country made the chemical weapon warhead?
    Most countries have destroyed their chemical weapons, the only countries that currently field chemical weapons, are the US, UK and Israel.
