The Syrian regime has written to the UN, warning that it believes the US may attempt to frame it by alleging that it has used chemical weapons on so called “rebels”, as well as innocent civilians.
“The U.S. administration has consistently worked over the past year to launch a campaign of allegations on the possibility that Syria could use chemical weapons during the current crisis,” a letter penned to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon by the Syrian Foreign Ministry states.
The letter was one of a series sent to the UN head according to the state-run Syrian Arab News Agency.
“What raises concerns about this news circulated by the media is our serious fear that some of the countries backing terrorism and terrorists might provide the armed terrorist groups with chemical weapons and claim that it was the Syrian government that used the weapons,” SANA quoted the letters as saying.
The letters also stated that the Syrian government opposes the use of chemical weapons against anyone, including the rebels, and that such weapons have never been used by the Syrian government against civilians.
The foreign ministry also cited recent reports that al qaeda affiliated militants are manufacturing chemical weapons at a laboratory near the Turkish city of Gaziantep, and that they have threatened to use them against Syrian civilians.
As we have noted, given that the only suggestion Assad’s government is preparing to use chemical weapons comes from western media reports and somewhat hysterical proclamations from the Obama administration, the weight of evidence indicates that it is the rebels themselves, who have repeatedly been caught committing atrocities, that are more likely to resort to such tactics.
Indeed, reports circulated 6 months ago that rebel fighters had been given gas masks and were willing to stage a chemical weapons attack which would then be blamed on the Assad regime and grease the skids for NATO military intervention.
