    The US Department of State does not comment on the reports of possible provocations using sarin gas by terrorists in Syria.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The US Department of State does not comment on the reports about preparations for provocations with the use of sarin by terrorists in Syria, a representative of the department told Sputnik on Sunday.

    "We have nothing on this issue," the representative said.

    Earlier in the day, a military-diplomatic source told Sputnik that the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham terrorist group, formerly known as al-Nusra Front and outlawed in Russia, was preparing provocations at a storage in Syria's Idlib with the use of sarin gas in the towns of Khan Sheikhoun and Kefraya.

    The source added that a group of foreign citizens including those from the United States and Turkey as well as one of the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham’s senior leaders had arrived in Idlib to take part in the preparations.
