MOSCOW, November 11. /TASS/. Servicemen of the scientific center of Russia’s Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Protection Troops have found evidence of chemical weapons use against Syrian troops and civilians in the southwest of Syria’s Aleppo, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman said on Friday.
"Defense ministry experts have found some unexploded artillery shells with toxic chemicals, launched by terrorists. Samples have also been taken from areas where they landed, including fragments of shells that exploded," Igor Konashenkov said.
An express test in a mobile lab revealed that the shells most likely contained chlorine and white phosphorus.
The samples will be further analyzed at the Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Protection Troops scientific facility in Russia, licensed by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
