DAMASCUS (Sputnik) - Militants in northern Syria transferred two canisters filled with chlorine and sarin to groups loyal to the Daesh* terrorist group, Syrian state media reported on Monday.

"Militants from Jaysh al-Izza, linked to the Jabhat al-Nusra [terrorist group, outlawed in Russia], on Sunday transported two canisters with chlorine and sarin from Ltamenah to Qalaat al-Madiq, northwest of Hama. These canisters were handed over to the Daesh-affiliated terror groups in the Idlib de-escalation zone," a source told the SANA news agency.

The demilitarized zone was agreed in September by Russian and Turkish presidents. Syria's armed opposition groups were allowed to leave the buffer zone in Syria’s northwest. The Nusra Front and the Daesh terrorist groups are not part of the deal.
