Jumblat Anew Links Nitrates to Damascus, Opposes 1559-Like Resolutions


Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblat has reiterated that the ammonium nitrates that exploded at Beirut port had been imported to be used in “striking Syrian cities and villages with aircraft-dropped barrel bombs.”

In an interview with LBCI TV, Jumblat added that the barrel bombs “replaced the chemical weapons, which in 2014 were seized from the Syrians following Barrack Obama’s agreement with Vladimir Putin.”
