Syrian Rebels Plan Chemical Weapons Attack On Israel From Assad-Controlled Territories


Syrian Rebels Furious At U.S.-Russian Deal (ZeroHedge, Sep 14, 2013):

With major deadlines now pushed off until next year and Assad appearing to come out smelling of (slightly tarnished) roses with his ‘compromise’ agreement with Russia (and the US) to join the chemical weapons treaty, not only is Israel now a major focus but the Syrian rebels – as one might expect – are not happy. As Reuters reports, the head of the opposition Syrian Supreme Military Council said on Saturday a U.S.-Russian agreement to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons was a blow to the two-and-a-half-year uprising to remove President Bashar al-Assad from power.Crucially, General Salim Idris notes that this allows Assad “to escape being held accountable,” and, while unverified for now, Idris added, “we have told our friends that the regime has begun moving a part of its chemical weapons arsenal to Lebanon and Iraq. We told them do not be fooled.” But another military council official, Qassim Saadeddine, was a little more aggressive: “Let the Kerry-Lavrov plan go to hell. We reject it and we will not protect the inspectors or let them enter Syria.”

The head of the opposition Syrian Supreme Military Council said on Saturday a U.S.-Russian agreement to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons was a blow to the two-and-a-half-year uprising to remove President Bashar al-Assad from power.

General Selim Idris said the deal would allow Assad to escape being held accountable for killing hundreds of civilians in a poison gas attack on Damascus on Aug. 21. Assad has denied responsibility for the attack.

“We have told our friends that the regime has begun moving a part of its chemical weapons arsenal to Lebanon and Iraq. We told them do not be fooled,” Idris told reporters in Istanbul.

“All of this initiative does not interest us. Russia is a partner with the regime in killing the Syrian people. A crime against humanity has been committed and there is not any mention of accountability.”

But another military council official, Qassim Saadeddine, said: “Let the Kerry-Lavrov plan go to hell. We reject it and we will not protect the inspectors or let them enter Syria.”

  1. What is missing is a clear picture of what the Syrian people want. I don’t know who to believe, what they are really doing, and the motives behind their actions and words.
    One article has Clown Kerry saying they could still use bombs, another that an agreement has been reached……I don’t think we are being given an honest picture of the situation.
    The warmongers behind the puppet leaders of the west want more wars, I don’t know what the Syrians want…….we are not given that information.
    One would think the Information Age would make all viewpoints available for view, instead, we know less than ever.
    I only know this much, none of them can be trusted.

  2. Thank you for all your valuable stories. You cover things few in the US do, regardless if it is popular or not. I appreciate those who speak their truth, regardless of what others may want to hear. Staying on the ongoing Japan mess is one excellent example. So many people are clueless. Now, they plan the 2020 Olympics there?
    That is real denial, nobody wants to contemplate their own demise.
    Best,
