Syria: Saudi-backed al-Nusra Front committed Khan Shaikhoun chemical attack
Addressing the United Nations Security Council, Dr. Bashar al-Jafari, Syria’s permeant representative to the UN said on Wednesday that the report produced by the UN-mandated Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM) and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) about the Khan Shaikhoun chemical attack is based entirely on conjectures, speculations and predictions, adding that the term “probably” has been profusely used in the reports.
MWFpress — Addressing the United Nations Security Council, Dr. Bashar al-Jafari, Syria’s permeant representative to the UN said on Wednesday that the report produced by the UN-mandated Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM) and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) about the Khan Shaikhoun chemical attack is based entirely on conjectures, speculations and predictions, adding that the term “probably” has been profusely used in the reports.
Al-Jafari pointed out that the Syrian government repetitively informed the UN about the chemical attacks perpetuated by the Saudi-backed al-Nusra Front terrorist organization, however, it was faced with either indifference or destructive and unlawful interference by the neighboring countries.
Dr. al-Jafari stressed that JIM’s findings over Khan Shaikhoun chemical attack was extremely biased and mere fictional.
Syria’s envoy to UN noted that the irony lies in the fact that Saudi-backed al-Nusra Front orchestrated Khan Shaikhoun massacre and at the same time hired bogus witnesses to incriminate Syrian Arab Army of being behind the attack, adding that those who provided American, British and French intelligence services about Khan Shaikhoun chemical attack were affiliating with al-Nusra Front.
UN Security Council held a meeting on Tuesday to assess the findings of JIM and OPCW over Khan Shaikhoun terrorist attack. UN’s report stressed that doctors, aid workers and journalists witnessed the poignant events of Khan Shaikhoun which led to the death of scores of Syrian civilians.
UN’s report concluded that ISIS terrorists have used mortal shells stuffed with poisonous mustard gas to target heavily populated areas. But western countries spearheaded by Washington insist that the attack was carried out by the Syrian Air Force.
