In a press conference in Damascus, al-Moallem pointed out that the lie that the Syrian
army used this weapon came from countries known for always conspiring against Syria after terrorists have failed in their attacks and those countries have failed in their attempts to disrupt the political process.
He however questioned the timing of this “unfair campaign” against Syria, linking it to
the fact that the past few weeks have witnessed active movement toward national
reconciliations, terrorist attacks in Jobar and the northern countryside of Hama to which the Syrian Army responded and succeeded to restore all points and the absence of terrorists from the latest Astana meeting upon Turkey’s request with the aim to disrupt the results at Astana.
He also referred to the fact at the fifth round of Geneva, the “Riyadh delegation” had
only one demand there, which is to take over power.
“When all these attempts failed, they came up with the lie of the army’s using chemical
weapons in Khan Sheikhoun,” said al-Moallem.
