Syria Not Using Chemical Weapons

Iran’s Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan said despite western countries’ propaganda, Syrian forces have never used chemical weapons against terrorists who are using weapons of mass destruction in their war against Damascus.
Addressing a ceremony to mark the 30th anniversary of a chemical attack against the Iranian city of Sardasht during the Iraq-imposed war in the 80s, Dehqan said that in the past few days, many sorties have been conducted over the region by countries like the UK and Italy that have claimed the Syrian government is planning to use chemical weapons in its future operations, Press TV reported.
“Iran announces that the Syrian government is not after using chemical weapons and this claim [that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons] by some individuals who regard themselves as the rulers of the world is questionable,” he said.
Dozens of people were killed in a chemical attack in the Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun in Syria’s northwestern province of Idlib on April 4.
The US and its allies were quick to accuse the Syrian government forces of carrying out the attack. Later in the month, the US mounted missile strikes on the Shayrat airbase in Syria in response to the incident.
