Rebel warehouse with chem weapons hit by Syrian airstrike in Idlib – Russian MOD

The Syrian Air Force has destroyed a warehouse in Idlib province, where ammunition dump containing chemical weapons was being produced by militants before being delivered to Iraq, the Russian Defense Ministry spokesman has said.

The strike, which was launched midday Tuesday, targeted a major rebel ammunition depot east of the town of Khan Sheikhoun, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov said in a statement.

The warehouse was used to both produce and store shells containing toxic gas, Konashenkov said. The shells were delivered to Iraq and repeatedly used there, he added, pointing out that both Iraq and international organizations have confirmed the use of such weapons by militants.

    I'm getting the feeling that the "spin" on this event and the US troops moving into Syria are related, and that the aim of all this US materiel pouring in isn't to take on Raqqa, but to take on Damascus
