Makeshift Terrorist CW Factory Discovered in Douma

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Throughout years of war in Syria, US-supported terrorists used sarin, chlorine and other CWs numerous times – mostly against civilians, incidents falsely blamed on Damascus.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry earlier said the following:

“(W)estern states and regional countries have directly or indirectly supplied banned poisonous substances to militants, terrorists and extremists active in Syria.”

Saudi Arabia and Turkey were caught red-handed supplying them to ISIS, al-Nusra and other terrorists.

Shells used by terrorists filled with toxic agents were discovered earlier – produced by the US Federal Laboratories and NonLethal Technologies, as well as Britain’s Cherming Defense.

Days earlier, a Douma warehouse was discovered with toxic substances used by terrorists to produce CWs.

On Sunday, Sputnik News reported the following:

“Syrian government forces patrolling Douma have uncovered a makeshift chemical weapons factory, which was apparently used to brew deadly toxins by terrorists who were recently driven from the area.”

They discovered the CW facility and storerooms in underground bunkers of sorts, located beneath residential buildings, connected by tunnels.

A Syrian army source explained the following:

“(M)any chemicals had ‘made in Saudi Arabia’ labels,” adding manuals for preparing toxins and explosives were discovered.

Russia is examining everything found, compiling more evidence on how terrorists operate in Syria, including their weapons and foreign backers.

CWs are false flag weapons of choice – used by US-supported terrorists, wrongfully blamed on Assad.

Russia’s envoy to the OPCW Alexander Shulgin expressed the same view, explaining:

“The chemical agenda is just a pretext. Everything the United States wants is to drive the Syrian government into the corner and have the Assad regime step down,” adding: 

“Concurrently, they are targeting Russia: first in a low voice, then louder and louder, and in an aggressive tone. Add the Skirpal case on top of that.”

More of the same is surely coming. Washington and its rogue allies intend using every dirty trick in the book to continue naked aggression for regime change.

If Russia fails to confront ruthless US tactics more forcefully, Trump administration neocons will be encouraged to get tougher than already.
