I'm sure you read that story : Chemical Weapons Were Seized from Syrian Militants In Turkey...



Chemical Weapons Were Not Seized from Syrian Militants In Turkey


On May 30, Turkish authorities arrested 12 people in 4 cities across Turkey.


On the day of the raids, Turkish media outlets Sabah & Milliyet reported a 2kg canister of Sarin gas had been discovered, although obviously no testing of any substance had taken place at this stage.

This report was picked up by PressTV & RT and has recently been reposted by alternative media.

The same day Adana governor, Huseyin Avni Cos denied any Sarin gas had been found and it is clear from released images no safety precautions had been taken by authorities conducting the raids.

Finally, on July 5, 2013, the Turkish Ambassador to Russia made a statement at a press conference in Moscow.

A Turkish envoy to Russia insisted in a news conference that suspicious materials seized recently from Syrian militants were harmless and could not be used as chemical weapons..
"As it turned out, it was antifreeze, and we informed our Russian counterparts about it."

DEBUNKED

But that is the exact "business purposes" of RT, that is for what kind of mission RT was create.

4. So


So, "Several Turkish newspapers" report it, according to the PressTV link you offered.

http://www.presstv.com/detail/2013/05/31/306366/turkey-seizes-sarin-near-syria-border/

And you claim RT (which you did not link) reported the same for "business purposes".

What did I miss?

6. And Turkey has no dog in this hunt?

 

Everyone has an angle. We probably can't trust anyone but the UN.

7. All 6 rebels were indicted for buying "materials for chemical weapons" 2 days ago by prosecutors

Turkish prosecutors indict Syrian rebels for seeking chemical weapons (10 tons of chemicals in May)

Not sure what you think you debunked unless you're just trying to mislead people.
