“In order to disrupt the advance of the Syrian government forces in the western quarters of Sarakib and subsequently charge them with the use of chemical weapons, on March 2 of this year, at night, a group of terrorists of up to 15 people attempted to detonate high-explosive ammunition along with tanks filled with poisonous chemicals”, the message said.

However, the Center noted that due to the lack of experience and skills in handling toxic substances, the militants violated the tightness of one of the tanks, allowing a leak next to them. “As a result of the incident, the terrorists received severe chemical poisoning, having failed to carry out the undermining of ammunition and implement a provocation,” the RF military said.

The report states that “irrefutable evidence of the failed provocation using chemical weapons” was obtained on March 3 during the response of the Syrian army against the terrorists “Hayat Tahrir al-Sham” (the new name of the terrorist organization “Jebhat al-Nusra” banned in Russia) to east of the Idlib de-escalation zone. “The Russian Center for the Reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria has conclusive data confirming the incident, which will be made public soon,” his representatives emphasized.

Earlier, the Center reported that units of the Russian military police were introduced in Sarakib, which on March 3 conducted the first patrol.
