Russian MoD: al-Nusra terrorists hide weapons in refugee camps in Idleb

Moscow, SANA-The Russian Ministry of Defense has affirmed that the terrorists of Jabhat al-Nusra are hiding weapons in refugee camps in Idleb province and preventing international organizations from accessing them.

Deputy Head of the Russian Coordination Center in Syria, Oleg Egorov, said in a statement today: “The center is receiving reports about the continuing deterioration of the humanitarian situation in the Harem and Salqin camps in Idleb province, as Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists placed weapons and ammunition depots in these camps in an attempt to hide their criminal activities.”

“In every way possible, terrorists are hindering access to the refugee camps by representatives of international organizations,” Egorov added.

“The terrorists’ actions pose a direct threat to the lives of civilians and are another example of how terrorists use civilians as a human shield,” he said.

Egorov announced that terrorist organizations have continued their violations in Idleb’s de-escalation zone, carrying out 4 attacks over the past 24 hours: two in Idleb, one in Hama and one in Lattakia.
