The extremists of the so-called Board for the Liberation of the Levant moved these containers, which could contain chlorine, to the town of Kafer Lossen near the front line with the Syrian military, said Rear Admiral Oleg Yuraflif, deputy head of the Russian Reconciliation Center.
The officer at the Hemeimim base in the coastal province of Latakia clarified that 15 terrorists from the aforementioned group, registered on the list of international terrorism, suffered burns due to the leak of toxic gas from one of the containers due to carelessness during their transfer.
The military commanders of Syria and Russia repeatedly denounced these actions by the extremists to blame the authorities and the regular Army.
The most recent was in November last year when they reported that terrorists stored toxic substances in underground shelters near the town of Saramada.
It was also known then that they made modifications to the locally manufactured rockets and added warheads with chlorine and sarin gases to use them against the Syrian army and its allies.
The Government repeatedly rejected the reports of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) that accused the Damascus authorities of using this type of weaponry and assured that the terrorists staged attacks to blame the State, following orders from their external operators. .
He also denounced that these actions are managed and supported by the United States, some allied Western governments and the Turkish intelligence services, which not only offer advice but also media and political coverage.
