During the briefing, State Department spokesman Mark Toner said he knew nothing about the “Harakat Nour al-Din al-Zenki” group that on August 2 allegedly conducted chemical attack in Aleppo. 

 

To the question “whether the United States will support the militants after the incident”, he answered:

 

“I have not seen the reports yet. Of course, we are opposed to any chemical weapons, as for the other questions, I have no papers whether we fund this organization”,- said Toner.

 

However, he declined to comment on the fact if “Harakat Nour al-Din al-Zenki” is included in the US list of the so-called moderate opposition.
