MOSCOW, (SANA)- Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi said the chemical weapons used by terrorists in Khan al-Assal in Aleppo countryside probably arrived from Turkey, stressing that the Western allegations that the Syrian army used chemical weapons in other areas are not credible.
Russia Today website quoted al-Zoubi as saying in a statement that the missile which targeted Khan al-Assal area was launched from a place where terrorists exist and which is not far from the Turkish lands.
He pointed out that the Syrian government took the initiative to request a probe into the incident, reiterating Syria's support for having Russian experts investigating the use of chemical weapons in Khan al-Assal.
Answering a question about the Western allegations which claim that chemical weapons were used by the Syrian army in other areas, the Information Minister said "The U.S.-British and Western allegations in general on that issue do not have any credibility."
Al-Zoubi held the Western sides directly responsible for what happened in Khan al-Assal, saying they want now to hide behind this "fabricated and false" talk to justify their silence on failing the investigation mission requested by Syria and to exonerate the terrorists.
The Minister added that the US is already involved in large-scale terrorist operations in the world and is involved in Syria now because of its support for and silence on the terrorism committed by the terrorist groups.
