Chemical weapons workshop used by “rebels” found in Eastern Ghouta

Syria’s government troops have found a make-shift workshop for making chemical weapons, the Syrian army’s Colonel Ferraz Ibrahim told the media on Monday. The workshop was found as troops combed the town of Aftris following the militants’ pullout. “Apparently the charges were made as part of preparations for a provocation with the aim to eventually accuse government troops of using chemical weapons,” he said.

Last week, the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation informed that terrorists were planning provocations involving chemical weapons in Eastern Ghouta.
