Because Alloush was an expertise in rocket attacks, he could buy 500 kilos “Sarin gas” and “Cyanide” with one of the officers’ coordination in Turkey intelligence agency named “Ayhan” from one of the countries of the Caucasus and Eastern European country. And also he could transfer these chemicals through Turkey into Syria. Since Saudi officials related to terrorists have promised to pay the cost of buying toxic gases before, he could pay back by one of the European countries local staff of the embassy of Saudi Arabia’s account to Vendors of toxic gases account.
After finding 2 kilograms of toxic gasses during transferring through turkey, this event becomes a huge scandal.

The products of this small workshop were wrapped one to three-kilo packages and under different covers in an illegal way and transferred to Jordan unbeknownst to the Government of Jordan. They transferred the depot in a villa in “Ar Ramtha” to “Daraa” then to secure locations in Rif Dimashq.
According to the fieldwork investigation of two reporter of Mint Press News, a large amount of chemical weapons was being distributed in Syria especially in “Eastern Ghouta” by the Saudi Intelligence Chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan.
Based on this research, previously local fighters against the regime of Bashar Assad, who are affiliated Al-Nusra Front, have acknowledged that the weapons were imported by Saudi militant, a field commander.
