The Moroccan and Libyan terrorists affiliated with Fateh al-Sham, formerly known as al-Nusra Front or a Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, have reportedly gained access to 100 unmanned aerial vehicles through a Turkish merchant to use them in chemical attacks against Syrian government forces in the country’s northwestern province of Idlib.
The drones have transported from the city of Harem, which lies close to the border with Turkey, to a militant position in the town of Ma’arrat Misrin, according to the local sources who spoke on condition of anonymity to the Arabic service of Russia’s Sputnik news agency.
The drones have been handed over to Moroccan and Libyan terrorists, the sources added.
“Terrorists are working under the supervision of a British expert to make modifications on the drones to become lighter, and to able to carry small shells loaded with toxic chemical substances,” the sources pointed out.
On November 22, Sputnik news agency reported that French experts had arrived in Syria’s northwestern city of Idlib in order to upgrade missiles, which are in the inventory of foreign-sponsored Takfiri militant groups, and load them with toxic chemical agents.
Local sources, requesting not to be named, said the professionals aim to use the munitions in a fake chemical attack carried out by terrorists as a pretext for the United States and its allies to launch possible airstrikes on Syrian government forces.
Jabhat Fateh al-Sham terrorists transported 200 drones from Sarmada town al-Muhandseen neighborhood in Idib city as Turkish and Chechen experts made technical and electronic modifications on them. The unmanned aerial vehicles had entered the Syrian territories earlier via Turkey.
