U.S. targeted an ISIS weapons warehouse in Deir Ezzor, Syria that held chemical agents: 100’s die
On April 12, 2017, at approximately 5:30 p.m. Syria time, the U.S. conducted airstrikes on ISIS positions in the eastern part of Deir Ezzor city, hitting a weapons warehouse that turned out to also be a chemical depot for the Islamic State.
After the strike, sources say a huge white cloud was formed that then turned yellow. A fire then broke out that lasted more than five hours, spewing toxic fumes into the air.
Hundreds of ISIS members were killed as well as some civilians as a result of breathing toxic air.
This confirms that ISIS owns chemical weapons.
Since chemical agents have also recently been found in Aleppo and Idlib at al-Qaeda warehouses and weapons workshops, this confirms that terror groups have been transporting chemicals across Syria’s border, and storing and using these chemical agents.
Purchasing and transporting these chemicals across borders also means these terror groups would need the help of other countries.
This means that terror groups coordinate with their “sponsor countries” to falsely accuse the Syrian Armed Forces of using chemical weapons.
The Syrian Air Force had conducted an airstrike targeting a terrorist weapons and ammunition warehouse in Khan Sheikhum in Idlib province on April 4th. The warehouse was also being used as a “workshop” for the production of land mines stuffed with poisonous substances. Assad was blamed for using chemical agents, when it was actually al-Qaeda who was housing the chemical’s in their warehouse.
Don’t be fooled by media propaganda.
This is exactly what happened when the Syrian Air Force hit the al-Qaeda weapons warehouse in Idlib. They hit a warehouse that had chemicals and the U.S. blamed Assad, when it was not.
