Alwaght- Turkey provided a clear transit route for the chemical weapons that were deployed against  Syrian Kurds near the city of Aleppo on Tuesday, a spokesman for the Kurdish YPG militia says.

In an interview with RT, Redur Xelil, Syrian anti-government militants “took advantage of the ceasefire” to launch attacks against a Kurdish-controlled area near Aleppo in northern Syria.

According to Xelil, the shells emitted an “unnatural smell” and “yellow smoke” upon impact, indicating that chemical weapons were involved.

“Our sources inside the rebel groups have confirmed that toxic substances were used. We also have verified information that sarin gas was delivered to them from Turkey. All signs point to the fact that these factions were using banned weapons, but we cannot access the launching area, as it is located on the front between the Turkish and rebel forces,” Xelil added.

Kurdish deputies in the Turkish parliament have previously accused Ankara of supplying ISIS and other terrorist groups inside Syria with chemical weapons, which are used both in their fight against the Syrian government and to pin responsibility for their deployment on the government of President Bashar Assad.

Tuesday’s attack, which also involved phosphorus, did not result in any severe casualties.

“This attack was a failure, but this doesn’t mean that there won’t be another one. We are convinced the enemy has shells containing improvised shells containing phosphorus and sarin gas,” said Xelil.

Early January a senior Russian diplomat said  it is highly likely that the ISIS Takfiri terrorists are using chemical weapons in Syria, state media report.

Mikhail Ulyanov, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s department for non-proliferation and arms control said an investigation must be launched into claims that Turkey sends possible supplies of sarin components to Syria, citing proof provided by a Turkish lawmaker lawmaker Eren Erdem of the opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP).

Erdem said ISIS terrorists in Syria were behind a 2013 chemical attack, and that they received materials required to produce the deadly sarin gas through Turkey.
