Washington: Russia lied about the chemical attack on Khan Sheikhoun in 2017

The US Embassy in Syria revealed that the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, falsely claimed that the attack on Khan Sheikhoun with chemical weapons and sarin gas on April 4, 2017, was planned, and Russia began a disinformation campaign to protect the Assad regime.

The US embassy accused Russia of misrepresenting the facts about the Assad regime’s attack on Khan Sheikhoun

The US embassy added that Russia had worked to “distract attention” from the attack, explaining that “the Russian Ministry of Defense stated, on April 5, 2017, that the Assad regime’s warplanes destroyed a chemical weapons laboratory for the opposition in the neighborhoods, but it did not provide any evidence.”

At a meeting of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, the Russian foreign minister hinted that countries opposed to Russia and Iran were responsible for the sarin attack.

It is noteworthy that on April 4, 2017, the Assad regime bombed with sarin gas Khan Sheikhoun city in Idlib countryside, killing 91 civilians, including 32 children and 23 women by suffocation, and injuring nearly 520 people, according to what the Syrian Network for Human Rights documented.
