article imageSyria blames Israel, Turkey and U.S for chemical attacks

By Paul Iddon     Apr 15, 2014 in Politics
The Syrian regime has said that the United States, Israel and Turkey, among others, are responsible for the chemical attacks carried out on its territory. It also alleged that these countries will likely be responsible for any future attacks.
The Jerusalem Post tells us that Syria's Foreign Minister had written to the Secretary General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon, as well as to the U,N Security Council, whereby he stated that, "Reports, studies and documented researches abound as to the involvement of the US, Turkey and several other countries, whether directly or indirectly, in these appalling carnage's in Syria."
The Damascus government also accused France and Saudi Arabia as playing a part in orchestrating such attacks.
The Syrian regime often blames foreign elements as having a hand in many of the atrocities carried out on its soil as part of the ongoing three-year-old war there which has claimed the lives of at least 150,000 people to date.
In other news relating to Syria's chemical weapons stockpile The Blaze recently carried a report that references an Israeli source which claims that the Syrian regime has recently used non-lethal chemicals on the battlefield against rebels in a suburb of Damascus. The substance used is said to neutralize rather than kill those exposed to it.
The Times of Israel also reports that Syria has shipped more chemicals out of Syria. However the director of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, Ahmet Uzumcu, has said that "the frequency of volumes of deliveries have to increase significantly," in order for Syria to meet the June 30 deadline it had agreed for all its stockpile to be shipped out.
