"The jets of the so-called US-led coalition launched a strike at about 17:30-17:50 on a Daesh warehouse where many foreign fighters were present, proving that terrorists possess chemical weapons," the Syrian military was quoted as saying by Sputnik news today.
Initiallly a white cloud and after that a yellow one appeared at the site of the strike, showing presence of a large number of poisonous substances.
“A fire at the site continued until 22:30 [19:30 GMT]," the Syrian army's command said.
According to the Syrian General Staff, the US-led coalition's strike killed several hundred people, including civilians. Hundreds were poisoned as a result of the strike on Daesh's headquarters and depot with chemical weapons.
