Update 2:  The Pentagon has admitted to mistakenly killing 18 Syrians in an airstrike on April 11th:

Update 1: Russia has reportedly dispatched drones to the area to confirm Syria’s reports. The Russian military said that it has no information confirming the reports of death as a result of the US-led coalition’s strike.

“The Russian Defense Ministry does not possess information confirming reports of deaths and the type of the destriction as a result of the US-led coalition’s bombing near Deir ez-Zor.”

“Unmanned aerial vehicles have been sent to the area to monuitor the situation,” the ministry added.

As we detailed earlier, the Syrian General Staff said that the US-led coalition struck an ISIS depot storing chemical weapons in Deir ez-Zor on Wednesday, poisoning and killing several hundred people, including civilians.

As SputnikNews reports, the Syrian military said that this fact proves that terrorists possess chemical weapons.

“The jets of the so-called US-led coalition launched a strike at about 17:30-17:50 [local time, 14:30-14:50 GMT] on a Daesh warehouse where many foreign fighters were present. First a white cloud and then a yellow one appeared at the site of the strike, which points at the presence of a large number of poisonous substances. A fire at the site continued until 22:30 [19:30 GMT],”

The Syrian army yet again denied possessing chemical weapons. 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.

“This confirms that Daesh and al-Nusra terrorists possess chemical weapons and are capable of using, obtaining and transporting it,” the document said.

Furthermore, if true, the US coalition just did exactly what Russia has claimed occurred in the initial chemical attack (that prompted President Trump’s “Tomahawk” torrent). The Russian Defense Ministry said the day after the initial chemical weapons release that an airstrike near Khan Shaykhun was carried out by Syrian aircraft, struck a terrorist warehouse that stored chemical weapons slated for delivery to Iraq.
