The Russian journalist Evgeny Poddubny denied the false media informationabout the containers with supposedly “chemical weapons”.
“Take a look at the containers, which are called chemical weapons at the Shayrat airbase. In fact, these containers have nothing to do with the warfare agents. These are bomb containers for aviation equipment. They are used not only to transport ammunition, but also for various goods and equipment. Greetings to all Internet experts”, Poddubny said.
On Thursday night, the United States launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Syrian military airfield in Ash Sha’irat, located about 40 kilometers (25 miles) from the city of Homs. US President Donald Trump said the attack was a response to the alleged chemical weapon use in Syria’s Idlib on Tuesday, which Washington blames on the Syrian government.
