Using chemical allegations in Douma is blatant attempt to hinder army’s advance – Official
Official source asserted on Saturday that Jaish al-Islam terrorists positioned in their last bastion of Douma are in a state of dramatic collapse before the Syrian Arab Army.
The official source told SANA in a statement that media affiliates of Jaish al-Islam terrorists are repeating the allegations of using chemical weapons in order to accuse the Syrian Arab army, in a blatant attempt to hinder the Army’s advance.
Some media outlets, known for their support to the terrorists, claimed that the army used chemical weapons in the city of Douma during its military operations in response to the attacks carried out by the terrorist organization on several Damascus neighborhoods and its surroundings.
The same source went on to say that the Syrian Arab Army, which is making a swift and determined advance, does not need to use any chemical materials as claimed by terrorists’ media affiliates.
The chemical fabrications, which did not serve the terrorists and their sponsors in Aleppo and Eastern Ghouta, will not serve them today either, as the Syrian state is determined to end terrorism in every square inch of Syrian territory, the official source added.
Jaish al-Islam terrorists breached Douma agreement by attacking with mortar and rocket shells several residential areas of Damascus, claiming the lives and injuring dozens of civilians, including women and children.
The Syrian Arab Army units targeted Jaish al-Islam positions in Douma area in response to their mortar and rocket attacks, inflicting heavy losses upon the terrorist organizations.
