Moscow, Russia – A Russian Defense Ministry official said at a joint news briefing by Russia’s Foreign Ministry, Defense Ministry and Industry and Trade Ministry in Moscow on Thursday that Russia has concluded that its impossible that the Syrian air force could have used chemical agents after studying the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) report. 

“After studying the materials submitted, I see several aspects that do not allow making a conclusion that chemical weapons in the form of an air bomb were used from a Su-22 aircraft of the Syrian Air Force,” the spokesman said.

“All aviation bombs are made of highly alloyed steel, which bursts into small fragments when an explosive is detonated inside the bomb. On this photo, they show us as the bomb remainder an incomprehensive metal sheet that has typical folds and ruptures, which suggests that the metal is quite plastic and this is evidence that the munition was an improvised charge made of a water-supply pipe,” the spokesman said.

The incident in the town of Khan Shaykhun in Syria’s jihadist-held Idlib occurred on April 4 with almost 100 people being killed. The Syrian government was immediately blamed by most of the West.
