The Syrian army has uncovered a clandestine plant in Eastern Ghouta that was used by the terrorists to produce military-grade agents, with equipment of Saudi origin and materials presumably made in Western countries having been found at the building, local media reported on Tuesday.
The plant is located in al-Shefounieh town in the area of Duma. Among other toxic chemicals, chlorine was found at the site, the SANA news agency reported, adding that the papers of the Jaysh al-Islam militant group were also discovered.
A Syrian field commander said that high-tech equipment was found at the plant, which indicates that European and Saudi experts could have been involved in the illegal production, according to the agency.

So, was this plant built by the CIA during the Obama administration?
Here’s another source:
Syrian army says found rebel chemical weapons workshop in Ghouta
Jerusalem Post | March 12, 2018
After every trip when McStain went to visit his rebel ISIS buds in Syria, within just a few months, a chemical attack took place and Assad got blamed for it.
They had the means constructed and had produced Military Weapons Grade chemical weapons and had those weapons already in their possession in the field.
An OPCW team is enroute to Douma and should be onsite there in a couple of days.
Meanwhile Russian military have secured the area and there are unconfirmed reports they have captured some western special forces operators.
I love Donald Trump! It was his strong stance/threat that found this lab.
Oh dear, oh dear. Bags of salt!
I don't care what this is, it's a plant. Enough fighting on the wrong side and favoring the greater evil.
The “Rebel” Terrorists had, in their possession, in Ghouta, a stockpile of Military Grade Chemical Weapons indistinguishable from the chemical weapons Assad was accused of using, at least a month before this latest attack.
I guess we have inumerable "Chemical Weapon Depots" in every community in the USA that has large swimming pools and water treatment plants? Damn, I hope the "New World Order Government" doesn't start bombing us as a result!
When Assad is winning in Syria taking back ISIS-held land, why would he drop a chem-bomb?
As meaning that I don't think Assad was responsible. And the rebels know that McTreason has their back and they drop the chem-bombs when they get confirmation from their buddy in the Senate.
Can't say that, it was equipped with Saudi and European equipment, but Saudi stuff is available to all Islamic Terrorist groups anywhere.
European stuff is available to any Nazi and Commie outfit, they will sell to Muzzies.
This is the reason for Trumps change of direction. This was revealed yesterday and the international inspectors were immediately allowed in . The town just fell in the last 48 hours to the Syrian Army.It was in enemy hands until Tuesday, Trump was about to make a huge mistake on the advice of NeoCons and McCain people. That has been crushed and Trump is to be commended for this turn around predicted by many here. This find effectively ends the discussion if it hold true for the inspectors. Chlorine residue is very easy to find but this stands as tangible proof that Syria did not gas its own people on the brink of wiping out Isis. Why would they ever have done that?
we’re looking way beyond chlorine; preliminary tests allege sarin
(an article I read last nite but didn’t post because I didn’t see a second source. The article said the first attack was chlorine and about 7:30 in the evening a second wave came in the hospitals with what looked like nerve agent toxicity. NBC is claiming ‘exclusive’ so that makes a second source.)
Yes, but there was more to it: the Ghouta enclave was broken into three parts about a month ago, and similar chemical facilities were found in the parts liberated earlier, the Douma enclave -- where the alleged chemical attack took place -- was the last to be freed.
Right now the entire Ghouta is free from the Islamist forces, meaning that no more shelling of Damascus and no immediate threat to the capital.
Is this the one that had two stories, and also receipts for $$$ from medecins sans frontieres?
I'm trying to get across that this plant was built and operated by Saudi agents in Rebel controlled Ghouta to produce chem weapons that would appear to be Assad's, at least a month before the latest strike.
It is one thing to produce chlorine; a commonly used chemical for many things; electrolyze brine. Battery or power supply, jar, some electrodes which could be various kinds of metals or carbon. Pencil leads.
It would be very non-noteworthy to have other “toxic chemicals” at virtually *any* site used for producing chemicals. Various acids, easy. Battery (sulfuric) acid is pretty damn nasty stuff, especially concentrated. Can produce horrific burns.
It is an entirely different thing to produce sarin and other organophosphorus nerve agents. You had better have topnotch glassware and aggressive fume extraction, personal protective gear, high end gear all around. You get a small leak in your apparatus and the whole lab drops over dead. You have an apparatus set up to make these things and vibration from a nearby bomb going off loosens various seals or shatters a flask, producing a leak. Not on my block, please. The idea of making this kind of reagent in a war zone is barely plausible, but hundreds of things are implausible in that part of the world.
