Newscast Media DAMASCUSSyria's army foiled a plot by al-Nusra Front in cooperation with the Turkish Intelligence, to launch a chemical attack using Sarin gas against Damascus during Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's oath ceremony, according to Al Manar.

The Syrian army launched rocket attacks against one of the farms in the Damascus southern countryside where a concluding meeting was held by 11 Nusra leaders before attempting to launch chemical (Sarin gas) attacks upon the capital.

Security sources reported that the Syrian army carried out a swift attack against the 11 militant leaders and employed warplanes to destroy the whole building where the meeting was held.

According to Al Manar, assisted by Turkish intelligence, Nusra Front was able to obtain 16 Sarin gas pipes from Bulgaria and conducted exercises on the use of homemade rockets.

Syrian security sources noted that frustrating the chemical attack is part of an operation of foiling a number of terrorist attacks against Damascus during the presidential elections, asserting that the Syrian security services have started to employ sophisticated equipment, that has enabled them to frustrate many plots recently.
