Al-Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front terrorists
have deployed chemical weapons near Aleppo

The Defense Ministry in Moscow said scores of militants have also arrived from Turkey in the outskirts of Syria’s second city to fight back a government offensive in the region. 

“According to reports by local residents, more than 100 Nusra Front terrorists have arrived in the village of Kafr Hamrah,” the ministry said.

Several trucks “carrying self-made ammunition armed with chlorine-based toxic agents” have arrived from the Idlib province in the northern outskirts of Aleppo controlled by Nusra Front terrorists.

‘US, Saudi, Turkish generals in Khan Tuman’

In Tehran, a senior official said Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar had recently supplied Takfiri militants with weapons and food to retake the Syrian village of Khan Tuman in Aleppo during the ceasefire.

Writing on his Instagram account on Wednesday, Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council Mohsen Rezaei said Takfiri terrorists had received “weapons, ammunition, money and food from Turkey’s southern borders and its Iskenderun port.”

“In addition, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are providing aid to terrorists via the sea,” said Rezaei, who was the former chief commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

According to the Iranian official, several US, Saudi and Turkish generals “specializing in special warfare” have recently joined Tafkiri terrorists and “directed the operation in Khan Tuman.”

“Aleppo has now become a matter of prestige for Saudi Arabia and Turkey; hence, they are intervening there with full force. Aleppo, in fact, is the ultimate showdown between the resistance and invaders,” Rezaei said.

Takfiri militants took control of Khan Tuman on May 6, shortly before a 48-hour truce in Aleppo was due to expire.

Jaysh al-Islam and Ahrar al-Sham are the Takfiri groups which assist Nusra Front and Daesh in the Aleppo battle.

On Tuesday, the US, Britain, France, and Ukraine blocked a Russian bid to add Jaysh al-Islam and Ahrar al-Sham to a UN blacklist of terrorist groups and sideline them from the Syria peace process.

Jaysh al-Islam is part of Riyadh-based Syria opposition group, the High Negotiations Committee (HNC). Ahrar al-sham also took part in the latest round of Syria peace talks.

Moscow said on Tuesday that the 17-nation International Syria Support Group (ISSG) would meet in Vienna, Austria, on May 17 to try to get peace efforts back on track.
