US- Led Coalition Airstrikes against ISIS Held Chemical Weapons Depot, Hundreds KilledBy: Global Research
According to the Syrian News Agency SANA, the US led Coalition has carried out targeted airstrikes against a chemical weapons depot in Hatla, east of Deir Ezzor. The depot is held by ISIS-Daesh terrorists:
The General Command of the Army and Armed Forces said that the aircrafts of the so-called “US-led International Alliance” on Wednesday between the hour 17:30 and 17:50 carried out an airstrike against a position of ISIS terrorists that includes a large number of foreign mercenaries in the village of Hatla to the east of Deir Ezzor, causing a white cloud that became yellow as a result of the explosion of a huge store that includes a large amount of toxic materials.
Several hundred deaths were recorded:
In a statement issued Thursday, the Army General Command stressed that the airstrike of the “US-led International Alliance” killed hundreds, including large numbers of civilians, due to the suffocation resulted from inhaling toxic substances.
Sofar, the Western media has not reported this tragic incident, the details of which remain to be fully corroborated.
The report issued by the Syrian military confirms that the ISIS-Daesh “rebels” (who are supported covertly by the Western military alliance and its Middle East allies including Saudi Arabia and Qatar) are in possession of toxic chemical weapons.
Previous media reports (CNN) confirm that they Syrian opposition rebels were trained on contract to the Pentagon by Western specialists in the use of chemical weapons. A comprehensive 2013 UN report confirms that the opposition rebels used chemical weapons against SAA soldiers and civilians.
It is worth noting that a large number of foreign mercenaries were reported in the area targeted by US-led coalition airstrikes.
The Thursday attack followed Russia’s veto on Wednesday of a U.N. Security Council resolution regarding the April 4 chemical weapons attack. The vote on the Security Council resolution drafted by Britain, France and the United States was 10 in favor, Russia and Bolivia against, with China, Kazakhstan and Ethiopia abstaining.
It is worth noting that the casualties resulting from Thursday’s airstrikes are far more serious, according to the initial Syrian government report, than those pertaining to the April 4 CW attack.
