BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – Russian broadcaster VGTRK released video on Friday showing an alleged chemical laboratory in Douma, suspected of belonging to militant group Jaish al-Islam.

According to Russian Defence Ministry’s military expert on radiation, chemical, and biological protection, Alexander Rodionov, “the specialists from radiation, chemical and biological protection’s corpses conducted extra examination in the chemical laboratory discovered in Douma.”

He went on to say that “they discovered a lot of the chemical substance of hexamine that can be used for production of explosives as well as for synthesis of the poisonous substance sarin.”

Several Western powers, led by the United States, claimed chemical substances were used by Syrian government forces on April 7. The claim has been denied by Damascus and Moscow, who called the allegations a “fabrication.”

On April 14 the US, UK and France launched airstrikes against multiple government targets in Damascus as a response to the alleged chemical attack against Syrian civilians.

The amount shown points to explosives. But on the same grounds that the US, UK and France accused Syria, we should accuse their mercenaries. Their allied mercenaries have precursors for chemical warfare, all alleged chemical attacks in the region must to be investigated.

The hexamine compound must be fingerprinted and compared to any incident of alleged incidents that involved amphetamine based poisons.

The origin of the hexamine compound has to be investigated – there is an international ban on sale to Syria…
