Syria roundly dismissed a recent report by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons [OPCW] about a series of toxic attacks in the country's western Hama region as misleading, and based on fabricated information provided by Takfiri terrorists and the notorious so-called civil defense group, White Helmets.

“The OPCW published on April 8 a report compiled by its Investigation and Identification Team [IIT], whilst Syria and a number of countries have described the team as illegitimate and unconventional,” the Syrian Foreign Ministry said in a statement published by the country’s official news agency SANA on Thursday.

The ministry noted that the report contains fake and fabricated conclusions, and is aimed at falsifying facts and accusing Syrian government forces of using toxic materials in Lataminah town back in March 2017.

It further highlighted that the report relied on sources prepared and fabricated by the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham Takfiri terrorist group, formerly known as the al-Nusra Front, and the disreputable White Helmets, under the instructions of their masters in the United States, Turkey and other Western countries.

“Syria categorically denies the use of toxic materials in Lataminah or any part of the country. It reiterates that the Syrian Arab Army has never used such weapons in the course of fierce battles against terrorist groups,” the ministry pointed out.

The Syrian foreign ministry finally compared the OPCW's latest report with the one on the alleged use of chemical weapons in the city of Douma, located about 10 kilometers northeast of the capital Damascus, noting that the present publication is another “disgrace” for the organization.
