Militants produced chemical weapons in the Syrian Duma, Russian military said

SYRIA (OBSERVATORY) –┬áThe Russian military found a laboratory in the Syrian city of Dumas, where militants were engaged in the production of chemical weapons. There were such forbidden substances as thiodiglycol and diethanolamine.

They are used in the production of a warfare agent for the dermal-blasting action of mustard. In addition, a bottle with chlorine was found in the warehouse. A similar one was seen in the militants’ production video, Alexander Rodionov, a specialist of the radiation, chemical and biological defense forces of the Russian Federation , told Rossiya 24 .

Recall, on April 7, a number of media spread information that a chemical attack had taken place in the Syrian city of the Duma . However, the Russian military interviewed doctors who worked in the area, as well as militants and civilians. None of them did not hear anything about the use of poisonous substances.

Moreover, the Russian Defense Ministry published an interview with two eyewitnesses of provocation, both of whom have a medical education. They said that all the “victims” of chemical weapons had no signs of poisoning. However, some unknown people poured water on them, shouted that they were infected and at the same time filmed it on video cameras.
