General Command of the Syrian Army has issued a statement, saying that claims, made up by certain media outlets, affiliated with terrorist groups, about Syrian Army using chlorine gas during their operations against the terrorists of Al Rahman Brigade in the Damascene district Ein Tarma, are completely false and have no credibility.

The statement assured the Army is not using any types of poisonous gases, while fighting against the terrorists.

Meanwhile, the terrorists keep shelling residential areas.

Earlier on Saturday, a woman was killed and 19 other people were left injured while visiting their friends and relatives, held at the Central Prison of Damascus, after terrorists started to shell the area.

Another injury was reported in the Jaramana district of Damascus.

2 people were killed and 12 others were wounded, after terrorists opened fire at Al Kashef neighbourhood in the southern city of Daraa.

The terrorists also shelled Hadar village, located in the northern countryside of the southwestern province of Quneitra, killing one person and injuring two others. 

On a positive side, the authorities managed to recover 4 funeral busts from ancient Palmyra, after searching one of the former ISIS centers in Palmyra.

The antiquities, dating back to the 2nd and 3rd century A.D., have already been handed over to General Directorate of Antiquities and Museums, and are said to be in a good state.
