Putin Warns Against Provocation over Syria ‘Chemical’ Claims
Local Editor

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned against any recourse to provocative measures over allegations of a new chemical attack in Syria, amid rising threats of a military action by the US and its allies against the Damascus government, which they blame for the reported incident.

In a phone call on Monday, Putin discussed with German Chancellor Angela Merkel the situation in Syria, "including the accusations against Damascus by a number of Western countries of using chemical weapons," the Kremlin said in a statement.

The fabricated attack on the militant-held town of Douma in Damascus' Eastern Ghouta suburb over the weekend left dozens dead and drew international condemnation from various countries and international bodies.

In a statement released late on Saturday, the Syrian government strongly rejected the allegation of using chemical munitions and said that the so-called Jaish al-Islam Takfiri terrorist group, which has dominant presence in Douma, was repeating the accusations "in order to accuse the Syrian Arab army, in a blatant attempt to hinder the Army's advance."

"The Russian side stressed the unacceptability of provocation and speculation on this matter," the Kremlin added.

The allegations against the Syrian government have been flying around as Damascus and its ally Moscow are within an inch of defeating foreign-backed militants in Douma, their last stronghold in Eastern Ghouta.

The militants have been using the civilians there as human shields and launching deadly rocket against the capital from the countryside.
