MOSCOW: Rus­sia’s de­fence min­istry says mil­i­tants in a re­bel­con­trolled prov­ince of Syria are pre­par­ing a chem­i­cal weapons at­tack.

Yes­ter­day it quoted un­named sources say­ing the Le­vant Lib­er­a­tion Com­mit­tee is pre­par­ing an at­tack against civil­ians in the north­west­ern Idlib prov­ince to blame it on the Syr­ian gov­ern­ment. The mil­i­tary cited sources al­leg­ing that sev­eral con­tain­ers with chlo­rine had been taken to a nearby vil­lage.

The min­istry also claimed a pri­vate Bri­tish con­tac­tor was help­ing the rebels stage the at­tack.
