MOSCOW, Russia – Director of the Russian Foreign Ministry‘s Department for Nonproliferation and Arms Control, Mikhail Ulyanov said on Wednesday that the UN-OPCW Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM) report on the chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun in Syria’s Idlib province are amateurish and politically biased.
The incident took place on 4 April 2017 with around 100 people being killed. The Syrian and Russian government’s maintain that it was committed by the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Nusra Front as a false flag operation to provoke a US retaliation.
The US in response to the chemical attack launched 59 cruise missiles on Shayrat Airbase, a Syrian airfield used primarily to launch airstrikes against ISIS at the time.
