Russian Federation tested 210 weapons in Syria – Defense Minister


US Defense Secretary James Mattis on Sunday warned Syria against using chemical weapons, implying it would prompt military consequences, as it did previous year when President Donald Trump ordered a strike on a Syrian air base.

Trump launched a cruise missile strike at a Syrian airbase last April after Assad used chemical weapons to attack civilians, killing more than 80 people, including many children. “What we saw, made comments, additions – that’s all, of course, in the future will save lives for those who come with this weapon to fight further”, he said.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights said that the Syrian government’s attacks on Ghouta likely constitute war crimes.

In an interview with Russia’s Sputnik news agency released on Friday, Syria’s ambassador to the United Nations Bashar Ja’afari also said that the accusations leveled by the USA and its allies against the Syrian government regarding the use of chemical weapons in the Eastern Ghouta region are meant to protect the terrorist groups and block the army’s advance against foreign-backed militants.

The Syrian government denies using incendiary or chemical weapons, saying rebels were planning to stage a fake chemical attack to discredit the army.

But he said Russian Federation, which has been propping up the Assad regime during the eight-year civil war, bears some of the blame.

“Either Russia is incompetent or in cahoots with Assad”, Mattis said. “There’s an terrible lot of reports about chlorine gas use or about symptoms that could be resulting from chlorine gas”, Mattis said, according to Reuters.
