Chemical weapons factory for terrorists discovered in east-Aleppo

RSFP

Sputnik journalists report about a chemical weapons factory discovered in the Eastern part of Aleppo. ~ Recent search operations in eastern Aleppo have confirmed that chemical weapons were indeed used during the conflict – but by terrorists, not government forces. ~ A source in the Syrian military confirmed that this type of ordnance was used by the terrorists against the Syrian army; one such attack occurred in the southwestern area of the city in the vicinity of the al-Assad Military Academy.

Analyses indicate that chemicals used by the terrorists were made in the U.S. while the bombs were manufactured on site. Furthermore, the mark UN 3082 is clearly visible on the chemical canisters discovered at the terrorist factory. 

Canisters found at a terrorist chemical weapons factory in Aleppo Earlier this year Samer Abbas, spokesman for the Syrian National Authority monitoring the implementation of the Chemical Weapons Convention, contacted the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and presented documented proof of terrorists using sulfur mustard ordnance against civilians in Syria. OCPW declared that a special committee to confirm the veracity of these documents needs to be created, but so far have apparently refrained from pursuing this line of inquiry for reasons unknown. Meanwhile, Russian Defense Ministry experts collected evidence of terrorists using chemical weapons in Marana Um Hosh village located to the south of Aleppo.

Syria: militant gangs fire shells with poison gas in Aleppo

(RT) ~ Poison gas was fired at a government-held area of Aleppo on Sunday, causing at least 15 people to choke, Syrian state media said.

State news agency SANA reported that “shells containing poison gases” had been fired at the residential district of al-Hamdaniya.

SANA did not report any deaths, but pan-Arab Al-Mayadeen channel stated that at least one person died, while 15 others are believed to have breathing difficulties after inhaling the gas. They are now being treated at the local hospital.

RT Arabic’s crew in Aleppo reports 36 cases of suffocation.

A couple of hours ago we received some 35 patients, all mildly hurt. Their symptoms match those that appear when a person is poisoned by chlorine gas,” doctor Yazan Sarmani told Ruptly at Al Razi hospital in Aleppo.

Al-Mayadeen earlier reported that all the victims of the attack are civilians.

The symptoms the victims showed were the same, but of different severity: watery eyes, frothing at the mouth, vomiting, nausea. All were either lightly or mildly hurt,” doctor Zahir Hamdi Hadzhu, a medical examiner from Aleppo, also told RT Arabic over the phone. “We asked some victims what they smelled… Their responses were the same: after the fall of the shell they [smelled] the odor which is often met at swimming pools.”

The symptoms and the smell indicate that chlorine gas was used. The final confirmation will be available after lab tests,” he said, adding that there may be more than 40 victims of the gas attack, as patients keep coming in.

Militants reportedly used the poisonous gas in an attack on the Assad Military Academy in the Assad Suburb in western Aleppo, as a part of a broader offensive against government positions in the city which was launched on Friday.

Victims at the hospital described the gas attack to Ruptly video agency.

They fired at us from mortars and attacked our positions with armored vehicles. We were circled. Shells were falling like rain. They also fired some poisonous substance at us. Then we were brought here,” a man wearing army camouflage said.

It is not yet confirmed what gas was used in the attack, but Al Mayadeen claims that fighting near the academy continues.

The head of the political office of the Aleppo-based rebel group Fastaqim denied the report of gas being used in the attack, according to Reuters.

Rebels launched a major offensive against government forces in Aleppo this week, attempting to break the siege on the eastern part of the city which they now control. Rebels from various groups are taking part in the assault, including those fighting under the FSA (Free Syrian Army) banner and Islamist militants. Militants are allegedly using explosives-laden cars and suicide bombers in the current assault, RIA Novosti news agency reported.

Last week, Russian and Syrian government forces halted strikes on the rebel-held positions in the city, hoping the initiative would lead to a long-awaited ceasefire. But according to military intelligence, militants used this period to transfer reinforcements to the area of Khan Tuman in the south and Kafr Hamra in the north of Aleppo, amounting to about 8 thousand fighters.

The Syrian government has been recently accused of using chemical weapons, including chlorine gas, in its attacks on militants. Several reports by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and the UN’s joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM) claimed that Syrian Arab Air Force helicopters used chemical weapons in a number of cases in 2014 and 2015. Moscow, however, dismissed these accusations, pointing to the lack solid proof and substantiated evidence that it was in fact the Syrian Army that conducted the attacks in question. The use of chlorine as a weapon is prohibited under the 1997 Chemical Weapons Convention, which Syria joined in 2013, after a Russian diplomatic effort. In January of that year, OPCW confirmed the destruction of all chemical weapons declared by the Syrian Arab Republic.

Vote For Clinton is a Vote for War — Friends of Syria

hillary_nuclear_war_russia

 As we have witnessed time and time again, just how heartless this woman is, who will stop at nothing for power and money, in the most evil way.
There is no doubt that this woman will not only continue to keep the US in a state of war, with her statements that she is going to topple Assad and attack Iran.
Some people are under the delusion that only men want war and a woman leader will support peace. How wrong they are, with Margaret Thatcher taking Britain to war with Argentina, over the Falkland Islands. Madeleine Albright justifying the killing over over 500,000 children and Hillary Clinton laughing at the butchering of Muammar Gaddafi. You are probably unaware that before she killed him, she killed his grandchildren in a US attack on their house. The very next morning they claimed to have killed Osama Bin Laden as a cover up.

These women have no heart when it comes to sending your sons and daughters to war. They are born killers for power, with Hillary Clinton not even caring about her own Ambassador Chris Stevens.
hqdefault
Gone are the days when leaders were the first to lead their country into war, the present cowardly politicians send their sons and daughters to fight on their behalf. Until, in recent years we have seen the US training terrorists to do their dirty work, as they know their would be an outcry if any more sons and daughters, get killed in the name of oil.
Veterans from around the world are sickened by the knowledge that their country is now supporting the very same terrorists that have killed so many of their compatriots. Veterans Today claims that Sakra, one of al-Qaeda’s top five kingpins, turned out to be on the CIA payroll. Like Osama Bin Laden, code-named “Tim Osman,” and al-Qaeda’s main operational terror organizer, Ali Mohamed, Laui Sakra was a Western intelligence asset whose job was to manufacture phony “Islamic terrorism” in service to Western and Zionist geo-strategic goals.
Obama has been itching for a war in Syria, with him declaring red lines on false flag attacks as an excuse to invade. Every time this has happened, Putin has put a stop to it. Putin has prevented a US invasion  for 6years now, with the closest ‘red flag’ attack happening with terrorist using chemical weapons massacring innocent civilians in Syria, to put the blame on Assad. Chemical weapons that we have now found out was orchestrated by Hillary Clinton.
The US military were in Jordan at the time, taking part in military exercises, but they were told to get ready to invade Syria. This was only stopped when Putin persuaded Assad to give up his chemical weapons to put a stop to these false flag attacks.
Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.
Obama is now getting desperate to remove Assad, before he steps down as President. Probably frightened that if Trump wins the election, the war will finish and the truth will get out.
When the US coalition attacked the Syrian Arab Army killing over 60 soldiers illegally, they claimed it was and accident. They expect us to believe plans from three countries attacking the Syrian army, for over an hour was a mistake and they didn’t know the SAA were there. When it was well publicised that the SAA had just sent in 1,000 elite military into the area. Even we had reported it.  Everyone over the world knew they were there, except the US Coalition with all of their intelligence, would have us believe they missed this news.
There is no way that this was an accident and the US just want to brush it off as ‘Oops sorry, we did it, sorry it was an accident, get over it’. Well if the boot was on the other foot and Russia “accidentally” killed 60 US soldiers, the US would call it an act of war and use it as an excuse to attack Russia.
Even after this incident when the US coalition broke the ‘Peace Deal’, they are still trying to blame Russia on breaking it.
For six years we have endured lie after lie from the US and its allies. So much so that we cannot believe a thing they say anymore, as the lies are getting even more ridiculous.
With only a few weeks to the elections now, Obama is going to do whatever it takes to make sure that Assad goes before he does and to hell with the consequences. If he fails then Hillary Clinton will continue the fight.
These cowardly politicians don’t care if they start a nuclear war, because they know they will survive in their nuclear shelter.
While the US was continuing with the Arab Spring and regime change in the Middle East, Putin decided to built 5,000 more nuclear shelters by 2012.
The US already have their nuclear shelters for the elite, but they don’t care about anyone else. With houses that get blown away in a hurricane, US citizens will stand no chance in a nuclear war. Japan has enough nuclear shelters for everyone since the second world war, but how does your country rate? Where will you go if there is a nuclear war?
I was at school when the Cuba Crises was happening in 1962, not old enough to understand what was really happening, but we were all given brochures at school on what to do if there was a nuclear war, which really frightened us. Well the present threat is even more dangerous, than it was back then.
The following video shows where the US elite will be living and it wasn’t built over night. Where will you go? Who cares about you? Nobody. When you vote for the election, you have the choice to vote for war or peace.

America which is strong and weak أميركا القوية الضعيفة

Written by Nasser Kandil, 

When the limit of the American speech becomes higher than waving of non-diplomatic options many people wait active US steps, but as a result of the rapid comparison between the decision of dismissing the war 2013, despite the huge differences in favor of going to war at that time not today, either in terms of the situation of the US presidential mandate or in terms of the political psychological media and military mobilization for the war, and under the slogan of the chemical weapon, and most importantly is that this opportunity was during the absence of Russian military re-positioning comparing with the qualitative magnitude which is witnessed by Syria, and it was before the nuclear understanding with Iran, before the Saudi military exhausting involvement in Yemen, before modifying the balances in favor of the Syrian army by the force in the field, and before Turkey gets confused with its issues, relations, and choices. So the one who dismissed at that date for fear of the cost, will not do it today. The Secretary of State John Kerry says in a leaked recording by the New York Times that the escalation will bring an escalation, and that the US people do not want more war, furthermore, the Congress will not give an authorization for going to war, but the most important is that the decision of the withdrawal despite the coming of the fleets was according to the estimation of the Pentagon, which many people suppose today that its encouragement of the choice of confrontation based on that it does not favor the choice of the understanding.

The Pentagon is behaving by the inspiration of the interests of the big companies in the aerospace industry, especially the missiles which carry nuclear warheads to avoid any military understandings with Russia that make the understanding on recycling the plutonium which its reactors has been disabled by the Russian President Vladimir Putin two days ago a main item in any Russian US cooperation, it is a wearying item for the companies and a source of unbearable losses. The Pentagon is behaving as well on the basis of that the regional issues are not of US concern in order to make Washington pay the costs of their implementation, they are mere attempts to reduce the losses and to achieve the profits of the allies which do not seem that they are comfortable with what is included in the understanding and what the US Department of State assumes it through its spokesman Kerry as an ideal solution, which its content is the partnership of the opposition and the armed groups in a unified Syrian government in preparation for elections in which the Syrian President participates, in exchange of US partnership in the war on Al Nusra front. While the Pentagon sees that just the refusal of the understanding by the groups concerned in the political solution is enough to keep it suspended, especially because it includes an item that supposes the US Russian military cooperation. While Washington can leave the Syrian groups to get matured through the war track in order to ask for a solution, or Russia and its allies will wage a war on Al Nusra, and Washington will just wait the entitlement of the war on ISIS then it will return to the understanding.

The advocates of suspending the Russian US military cooperation consider that America is strong to the extent that it does not need to pay the cost of the understandings from its prestige, because the worst option which is awaiting it is the complete victory of the Syrian country, its army, and its president. In this case the victorious country has to legitimize its victory and to normalize its relation with the abroad at its forefront the West, as well as to restore its position in the global markets, and to retune to trade and the banking transactions. The keys of all of these are American, then the negotiation will have a meaning and justifications, while America is putting its equations of direct interests not the equations of others, so how if this other thinks that it has better alternatives. The waiting here with some moral and political support and a bit of military aid to the armed groups to enhance their resilience without the involvement in escalation form an optimal choice than waging the battle of applying the understanding against Washington’s allies and the emerging as the weak renounced party which has sold its allies to the Russians.

America is extinguishing in the foreign politics due to the plans of intervention, it dispenses of its armies as a tool in making politics, just satisfying with hiding behind the wall of financial diplomatic and legal force which is summarized in the war through the sanctions and boycotting, while its reverse in the states of peace becomes as when Israel seeks protection from behind the cement wall as an expression of the inability to wage a war and the inability to make peace, as when Saudi Arabia fails to make its war and to make its peace in Yemen, with one difference is that the US wall is real not an illusionary, and that its military effectiveness after the experiences of blockade and sanctions on Iran and later on Russia prove its failure in weakening the opponents and the preparation for their fall or subjecting them, but its positive effectiveness in the states of enticement of opening the wall in front of the opponents under understandings that cancel the sanctions is still real.

This is America which is strong and weak.

– عندما يصير سقف الكلام الأميركي مرتفعاً عن لغة التلويح بخيارات غير دبلوماسية ينتظر الكثيرون خطوات أميركية عملانية، لكن المقارنة السريعة بقرار صرف النظر عن الحرب عام 2013 رغم فوارق هائلة لصالح خوض الحرب وقتها، وليس اليوم، سواء لجهة وضع الولاية الرئاسية الأميركية أو لجهة التعبئة السياسية والنفسية والإعلامية والعسكرية للحرب، والشعار الذي اتخذ من السلاح الكيميائي عنواناً، أو الأهمّ أنّ تلك الفرصة كانت بغياب تموضع عسكري روسي بالحجم النوعي الذي تشهده سورية، وقبل التفاهم النووي مع إيران، وقبل التورّط العسكري السعودي المرهق في اليمن، وقبل تعديل الموازين لصالح الجيش السوري بقوة في الميدان، وقبل أن ترتبك تركيا بملفاتها وعلاقاتها وخياراتها. ومَن صرف النظر يومها تهيّباً للثمن والكلفة، لن يفعلها اليوم، ووزير خارجيته جون كيري يقول في التسجيل المسرّب عبر «نيويورك تايمز» إنّ التصعيد سيجلب التصعيد، وإنّ الشعب الأميركي لا يريد مزيداً من الحروب، وإنّ الكونغرس لن يمنح تفويضاً لحرب، وأهمّ ما يجب قوله هو أنّ قرار الانسحاب رغم مجيء الأساطيل كان بحصيلة تقدير موقف للبنتاغون الذي يفترض كثيرون اليوم تشجيعه لخيار المواجهة، استناداً لعدم تحبيذه خيار التفاهم.

– يتصرف البنتاغون بوحي مصالح الشركات الكبرى في الصناعات الفضائية، خصوصاً الصواريخ المحمّلة بالرؤوس النووية، لتفادي أيّ تفاهمات عسكرية مع روسيا تجعل التفاهم على تدوير البلوتونيوم الذي جمّد مفاعيله الرئيس الروسي فلاديمير بوتين منذ يومين، بنداً رئيسياً في أيّ تعاون روسي أميركي. وهو بند مرهق للشركات ومصدر خسائر لا طاقة لها على تحمّلها. كما يتصرف البنتاغون على خلفية أنّ الملفات الإقليمية ليست هماً أميركياً لتضطر واشنطن دفع فواتير تنفيذها. فهي مجرد محاولات لتخفيف خسائر وتحقيق أرباح لحلفاء، لا يبدو أنهم مرتاحون لما يتضمّنه التفاهم وتفترضه الخارجية الأميركية بلسان كيري، حلاً مثالياً، مضمونه شراكة المعارضة والجماعات المسلحة في حكومة سورية موحّدة، تمهيداً لانتخابات يشارك فيها الرئيس السوري، مقابل شراكة أميركية في الحرب على جبهة النصرة، بينما يرى البنتاغون أنّ مجرد رفض الجماعات المعنية بالحلّ السياسي ترفض التفاهم يكفي لتعليقه، خصوصاً لتضمّنه بنداً يفترض التعاون العسكري الأميركي الروسي بينما تستطيع واشنطن أن تترك الجماعات السورية لتنضج عبر مسار الحرب لطلب الحلّ، أو أن تخوض روسيا وحلفاؤها حرب النصرة، وتنتظر واشنطن استحقاق الحرب على داعش، وعندها تعود للتفاهم.

– يعتبر دعاة تعليق التعاون العسكري الروسي الأميركي أنّ أميركا قوية لدرجة أنها لا تحتاج دفع ثمن التفاهمات من هيبتها، فأسوأ خيار ينتظرها هو انتصار كامل للدولة السورية وجيشها ورئيسها. وفي هذه الحالة سيكون على الدولة المنتصرة شرعنة نصرها وتطبيع علاقاتها بالخارج وفي مقدمته الغرب، واسترداد مكانتها في الأسواق العالمية، والعودة للمتاجرة والتعاملات المصرفية، وهذه كلها مفاتيحها أميركية، وعندها يكون للتفاوض معناه ومبرّراته وتضع أميركا معادلاتها المصلحية المباشرة وليس معادلات غيرها، كيف وأنّ هذا الغير يعتبر أنّ لديه بدائل أفضل، والانتظار هنا مع بعض الدعم المعنوي والسياسي وقليل من معونة عسكرية للجماعات المسلحة تعزيزاً لصمودها دون التورّط بالتصعيد، يشكلان خياراً أمثل من خوض معركة تطبيق التفاهم بوجه حلفاء واشنطن، والظهور بمظهر المتنازل الضعيف الذي باع حلفاءه للروس.

– أميركا تنكفئ في السياسة الخارجية من خطط التدخل، وتستغني عن جيوشها كأداة لصناعة السياسة، وتكتفي بالاحتماء وراء جدار القوة المالية والدبلوماسية والقانونية، الذي تختصره في الحرب العقوبات والمقاطعة، ويصير عكسه في حالات السلم، كما تحتمي «إسرائيل» وراء جدار عازل من الإسمنت، تعبيراً عن العجز عن الحرب والعجز عن السلم، وكما تعجز السعودية عن صناعة حربها في اليمن وتعجز عن صناعة سلمها، مع فارق أنّ الجدار الأميركي حقيقي، وليس وهمياً، وأنّ فعاليته الحربية بعد تجارب الحصار والعقوبات مع إيران ولاحقاً مع روسيا، أدت إلى فشله لإضعاف الخصوم والتمهيد لسقوطهم أو خضوعهم، لكن فاعليته الإيجابية في حالات الترغيب بفتح الجدار أمام الخصوم بموجب تفاهمات تلغي العقوبات، لا تزال حقيقة.

– هذه هي أميركا القوية الضعيفة.

Bashar al-Jaafari and Vitaly Churkin: “OPCW-UN report on chemical attacks in Syria lacks material evidence, not enough to impose sanctions on Damascus”

Bashar-al-Jaafari-20160831

OPCW-UN report on chemical attacks in Syria lacks material evidence, al-Jaafari stresses

(New York, SANA, Reem/H. Said) ~ Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN Bashar al-Jaafari asserted that the report issued by the United Nations and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) on the chemical attacks in Syria lacks physical evidence on using chlorine in the two cases referred to in the report.

Addressing a press conference after a closed-session of the UN Security Council on Tuesday to discuss the third report of the Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM), al-Jaafari said the report’s conclusions are not convincing as they are based on accounts by witnesses affiliated to the armed terrorist groups.

He underscored that there was not any material evidence in any of the report’s paragraphs, whether samples or medical reports which prove that chorine was used.

Nevertheless, the Syrian government will continue to cooperate with the Joint Investigative Mechanism to reach irrefutable evidence and will continue its own investigations because “Syria has a main interest in reaching the truth, and not assumptions built on the manipulation and exploitation of these incidents to achieve political interests,” said al-Jaafari.

Asked on whether Syria sees in the new report renewed pressure to return to the “red line” scenario, al-Jaafari made it clear that “this file has been ambiguous and disputable from the beginning” where many governments that are hostile to Syria fished in troubled waters regarding this file, in particular the American administration, only to later appear that it was inaccurate being based on false and baseless information.

The Syrian ambassador pointed out that the influential countries in the Security Council knew the parties who used chemical weapons in the incident of Khan al-Assal in Aleppo and kept them quite unidentified, therefore the talks between the Syrian side and the UN Secretary General continued for four months and 11 days until the chief of the UN chemical weapons inspectors Ake Sellstrom and his team were sent to Syria to investigate the chemical attack.

Shortly afterwards, al-Jaafari stated, an article written by the American journalist Seymour Hersh emerged accusing the governments of some foreign countries of being behind delivering toxic gases to the terrorists in Syria.

“Now we have a letter accusing the former French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius of being involved in Kan al-Assal incident and in the Eastern Ghouta incident,” he said.

Al-Jaafari also referred to current reports that a Syrian terrorist called Haitham Qassab, who works for the Turkish intelligence, was arrested while he was transporting two liters of Sarin from Libya to Turkey onboard a civilian plane as it would be tested on rabbits at a laboratory in Gaziantep before being transported to Syria where it would be used against the civilians to accuse the Syrian government.

He went on saying that since JIM started its work in Syria, he has sent 17 complaints to the members of the Security Council on the use of toxic gases in 17 cases, adding that each time he received unconvincing answers. “The Mechanism couldn’t deal with these cases because it is out of its mandate,” he said.

Churkin: OPCW-UN report on Syria chemical attacks not enough to impose sanctions on Damascus

(Washington, SANA, R.J/H. Said) ~ The findings of the latest joint report of the UN and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) that blamed Damascus for several chemical attacks lack specifics, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN Vitaly Churkin asserted.

He was quoted by Russia Today website as saying

“Already at this stage, we have a number of questions regarding the findings of the OPCW-UN Joint Investigative Mechanism on some cases. Evidence provided in the report gives rise to serious doubts. It could have been fabricated by the forces opposed to Damascus and terrorist groups, perhaps not without outside help.”

Churkin’s remarks came in response to a question on whether there is sufficient evidence in the report to impose sanctions on Damascus, following a closed-door session of the UN Security Council on Tuesday.

He told reporters that there are a number of questions which have to be clarified before Russia will accept all the findings and conclusions of the report.

“Clearly, there is a smoking gun. We know that chlorine most likely has been used — that was already the finding of fact-finding mission before — but there are no fingerprints on the gun,” Churkin said

He added that

“There is nobody to sanction in the report which has been issued….It contains no names, it contains no specifics. … If we are to be professional we need to question all the conclusions.”
