Russian specialists have confirmed that chemical weapons were used by the rebel forces in Aleppo last night, the Interfax News Agency reported this evening.
“Syrian terrorists use homemade mines filled with toxic agents in improvised manner,” the Russian chemical defense troops spokesman said.
The Russian specialists believe that chlorine gas was used by the rebels; however, they are referring the case to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).
According to a security source in Aleppo city, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has closed off the areas that were targeted with chemical weapons in order to let the OPCW examine the sites.
The rebel forces, including the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front (NLF), have denied carrying out this chemical weapons attack, despite accusations from the Russian and Syrian governments.
The Russian Air Force responded to the chemical weapons attack by destroying the launching sites for the jihadist rebels in the town of Khan Touman and Rashideen 4 suburb.

Over 100 people have now been confirmed dead or wounded as a result of the chlorine gas attack launched by the rebels on Aleppo city last night, Al-Mayadeen reported.

Aleppo’s Health Directorate Chief Ziad Haj Taha said many lives have been saved by the Syrian servicemen, who promptly delivered victims to hospitals after their areas were targeted by the rebel forces..

“So far, no one was discharged from hospital. Doctors continue treating those affected,” he said.

“The condition of two teenagers, who were earlier admitted to intensive care, has stabilized,” he added.
