The military added that for a month they have received information from various sources about the Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham* terrorist group preparing attacks using poisonous substances in the southern part of the Idlib de-escalation zone.
Terrorists in Syria are preparing a staged "chemical attack" in and around the settlements of Kansafra and Kdura in a bid to frame government troops, Rear Admiral Vadim Kulit, deputy head of the Russian Centre for the Reconciliation of Warring Parties in Syria, announced on Thursday.
According to the rear admiral, the militants are planning to stage a chemical attack with the help of the White Helmets and local media, while filming the event to accuse the Syrian government forces of using poisonous substances against civilians.
"According to available information, the terrorists are planning to stage a 'chemical attack' on the contact line in the areas of the settlements of Kansafra and Kdoura with the involvement of the pseudo-humanitarian organization 'White Helmets' and local media resources to stage filming to accuse the Syrian government forces of using poisonous substances against civilians," Kulit said at a briefing.
Earlier in the day, the Russian military reported that as a result of the terrorist shelling, a Syrian government soldier was wounded near the village of Kafr Oweid.
