Syria Plans Chemical Attack Against Syrians
LONDON (AFP) – The Syrian regime plans to deploy chemical weapons against its own people “as a last resort,” the former head of Syria's chemical arsenal told The Times newspaper in an interview published Wednesday.
Major General Adnan Sillu said he defected from the Syrian army three months ago after being party to top-levels talks about the use of chemical weapons on both rebel fighters and civilians.
that is bad enough but then read the rest:: both Hezbollah and the Iranian Republican Guard is involved in the chemical weapons use, and of course they are aiming to use them against Israel.
“They wanted to place warheads with the chemical weapons on missiles – to transfer them this way to Hezbollah. It was for use against Israel, of course,” he told The Times.
He suggested that the regime now had “nothing to lose” in sharing the weapons and added: “If a war starts between Hezbollah and Israel it will be only good for Syria.”
