MOSCOW, January 11. /TASS/. Syrian army units have found a warehouse of chemical substances left behind by terrorists in the old quarters of Aleppo on Wednesday, the SANA news agency reported.

According to SANA’s report, while combing Aleppo’s eastern neighborhoods, "an army unit discovered chemical materials of a Saudi source in a depot in Old Aleppo," including sulfur and chlorine. It noted that these "chemical substances were used by the terrorists in manufacturing explosives for the purpose of targeting residential areas in Aleppo."
