Warplanes launched air strikes with missiles loaded with poison gas targeting the heart of the city of Khan Sheikhoun in southern Idlib on Tuesday 4 April 2017, killing more than seventy people and hundreds were injured as a result of inhalation of toxic gases, and the toll of martyrs and injured is likely to increase.
O Muslims in the Blessed Land of Ash-Sham: The use of the tyrant of Ash-Sham of (internationally prohibited) poisonous gases is a clear indication that he was safe from punishment; for whoever is safe from punishment will not only misbehave but will wrong in everything else. Was it not for an international green light, the tyrant of Ash-Sham would not have dared to do anything, for he is, with no doubt, just a front for the international regime and one of its repressive tools. So, has it became evident for those who fall behind the international community and its political solutions that they are walking behind an illusion and a mirage? Or are there locks upon the hearts?!
This blatant development in targeting civilians with toxic sarin gas is tantamount to a death sentence and a genocide against the inhabitants of the liberated areas, especially after they were stuffed by the tyrant of Ash-Sham in one place to easily eliminate them in a short time. This puts us in front of a new phase which requires all of us to work hard to prevent it without delay; away from the international community which proved its complicity against us. Not only its complicity; but it is the actual killer of us. So, all the factions must shoulder their responsibilities and move seriously to eliminate the head of the snake that spreads its poison everywhere. The armies of the Islamic Ummah as they witness these brutal massacres committed against the people of Ash-Sham should mobilise and remove these traitor rulers who stand as impregnable blockage in the way of victory of the people of Ash-Sham; and even participate in killing them without fear of accountability. These rulers like the tyrant of the Ash-Sham are agents placed by the West upon our necks, for they are oppressive tyrants and the one who remains silent over them will not survive their darkness.
وَاتَّقُوا فِتْنَةً لَا تُصِيبَنَّ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا مِنْكُمْ خَاصَّةً وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ
