Le forze governative siriane non hanno mai usato e mai useranno armi chimiche contro i civili ma neppure contro i terroristi. Lo ha detto il ministro degli Esteri siriano, Walid Muallem dopo l’uccisione a Idlib di 80 persone vittime di un attacco con armi chimiche. “Sottolineo ancora una volta che il nostro esercito non ha mai usato armi chimiche e non le userà mai, non solo contro i civili ma nemmeno contro i terroristi che stanno attaccando la popolazione a colpi di mortaio” ha detto Muallem .

The Syrian government forces have never used and will never use chemical weapons against not only civilians, but terrorists as well, the country’s Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said Thursday. On Tuesday, the Syrian National Coalition of Revolution and Opposition Forces reported that some 80 people were killed and 200 injured earlier on that day in a chemical weapon attack in the town of Khan Shaykhun in Idlib, blaming the Syrian army for the incident. A source in the Syrian army later told Sputnik that the army did not have chemical weapons and the allegations could be part of anti-Damascus propaganda. “I stress to you once again that our army has never used chemical weapons and will not use chemical weapons … not only against our civilians … but also against the terrorists who are attacking our civilians through their mortar shells,” Muallem said.
