Russia: Fighting near Syria chemical site concerning
News   /   Syrian Crisis

Russia voiced concern over the security of a chemical arms storage facility in central Syria, warning that Islamist fighters were launching attacks only meters from the sensitive site.

Russian foreign ministry said in a statement on its website that Moscow strongly condemned these “provocative act” which it said aimed at derailing a plan for shipping the chemical stockpile within the set deadline, calling on countries with influence on the armed Syrian opposition to press for the “creation of favorable conditions” to implement the plan.

The ministry’s statement said “some of our partners believed the Islamic Army was a moderate force that could be included in the Geneva-2 conference . But its participating in the ranks of al-Nusra Front jihadists against Syrian army near the chemical sites in Homs give, in our opinion, strong evidence what these ‘moderate’ Islamists are representing”.
