MOSCOW, October 31./TASS/. Moscow strongly condemns a chemical attack against civilians in Aleppo, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Maria Zakharova said in a commentary on Monday.
The ministry reports that on Sunday terrorists shelled Hamdaniya and Dahiyet al-Assad districts in western Aleppo using self-made shells stuffed with chemical agents. "At least 35 people were poisoned, many of them were hospitalized," the ministry said.
"This incident in which terrorists used toxic agents against civilians is unfortunately not an isolated one," the commentary said. "Earlier, gunmen applied similar chemical weapons in 2013 in East Ghouta, in 2013 not far from the settlement of Khan al-Assal at Aleppo, in 2015 in the settlement of Marea in the same province and also in the summer of 2016 when the Salah-Eddin neighborhood of Aleppo was shelled," the diplomat said in the commentary.
"We consider it our duty to remind those, who as they themselves maintain have influence on armed units of Syrian opposition, about a need to abide by the assumed commitments and separate clearly and not formally the so called ‘moderate’ (opposition) from terrorists from Islamic State, Jabhat Fateh al-Sham and other gangs of this kind," she said.
