US Admits Nusra Front Terrorists Use Chemical Weapons in Syria
Local Editor

Russia's Defense Ministry revealed on Friday that the US State Department has finally admitted that the infamous al-Nusra Front, which controls Syria's Idlib Governorate through the umbrella terrorist group HTS and is still thought to be a front for al-Qaeda, "not only has, but uses chemical weapons against civilians."

Chemical weapon inspection

"The Hayat Tahrir al-Sham terrorist group [HTS], linked to al-Nusra, which uses 'small and heavy arms, improvised explosive devices, and chemical weapons', operates in that province [Idlib]. This is the first official recognition by the [US] State Department not simply of the presence, but, I emphasize, the use of chemical weapons by Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists in that part of Syria to commit terrorist attacks, about which we repeatedly warned," Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Konashenkov said.

Igor Konashenkov also recalled that in Idlib province, "only one case of the use of chemical weapons is known - in Khan-Sheikhun."

"However, the US accused government troops of [conducting] this chemical attack. And those who [actually] organized it, they called a "moderate opposition," Konashenkov said.

Igor Konashenkov stressed that "as for the alleged Russian Air Force bombing in the city of Idlib, the State Department here is mistaken and American citizens have nothing to fear. The Russian aircraft operating in Syria does not strike settlements, in contrast to the US and the coalition."
