French presidential hopeful Francois Asselineau questioned the truth of mainstream media reports about Damascus’ role in the Idlib chemical incident.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — French presidential candidate Francois Asselineau questioned on Wednesday Damascus’ role in the suspected deadly chemical attack in the Syrian province of Idlib.

>”We are told that Bashar Assad allegedly poisoned the children with gas. And I say that we do not know anything about this,” Asselineau told FranceInfo radio.

He added that he was not trying to defend Assad but to tell the truth.

On April 4, a chemical weapons incident in Syria’s Idlib province claimed the lives of some 80 people and inflicted harm on an additional 200 civilians. The Syrian National Coalition of Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, as well as a number of Western states, accused the Syrian government troops of carrying out the attack, while Damascus refuted these allegations, with a Syrian army source telling Sputnik that the army did not possess chemical weapons.

The Russian Defense Ministry said on April 5 that the airstrike near Khan Shaykhun by the Syrian air force hit a terrorist warehouse that stored chemical weapons slated for delivery to Iraq, and called on the UN Security Council to launch a proper investigation into the incident.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said April 6 that groundless accusations in the chemical weapons incident in Syria’s Idlib were unacceptable before the investigation into the matter had been carried out.
