Syrian regime ‘will use chemical weapons as last resort’

Share:

The Syrian regime plans to deploy chemical weapons against its own people “as a last resort”, the former head of Syria’s chemical arsenal has said in an interview with a British newspaper.

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.

“We were in a serious discussion about the use of chemical weapons, including how we would use them and in what areas,” he told The Times, referring to a meeting held at Syria’s chemical weapons centre south of Damascus.

“We discussed this as a last resort – such as if the regime lost control of an important area such as Aleppo.”

Speaking from Turkey, General Sillu said he was certain President Bashar al-Assad’s regime would eventually use chemical weapons against civilians, adding that the discussion had been “the last straw” which triggered his defection.

His comments come after German press reported on Tuesday that the Syrian army had tested a chemical weapons delivery system.

In his first interview since his defection, General Sillu said the Syrian regime had also considered supplying chemical weapons to the Lebanon-based militant group Hizbollah.

“They wanted to place warheads with the chemical weapons on missiles – to transfer them this way to Hizbollah. It was for use against Israel, of course,” he said.

He suggested that the regime now had “nothing to lose” in sharing the weapons and added: “If a war starts between Hizbollah and Israel it will be only good for Syria.”

Members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard also attended numerous meetings to discuss the use of chemical weapons, he said.

“They were always coming to visit and to advise. They were always sending us scientists and bringing our scientists to them. They were also involved on the political side of how to use the chemical weapons.”

The German magazine Der Spiegel, citing “witnesses, reported Monday that the Syrian army has tested a chemical weapons delivery system, firing shells at a research centre in its northwestern desert region.

“Five or six empty shells devised for delivering chemical agents were fired by tanks and aircraft, at a site called Diraiham in the desert near the village of Khanasir,” east of the city of Aleppo, Der Spiegel reported.

The Safira research centre in question is regarded as Syria’s largest testing site for chemical weapons.

  1. I never liked the “Chemical Brothers” music band, horrible music & video clips, except for one song, “Galvanize”. Maybe Assad was brainwashed by the words of the song: “World, the time has come to galvanize… push the button… my finger is on the button” …

  4. Chemical weapon cant distinguish the civilian and the fighters. Once the chemical weapon is dispensed in an area it will kill every living thing. Aerial bombing, Artillery shelling cause the same type of human casualty including collateral damage. In a war the aerial bombing and artillery shelling is intended to hit the military installation but in Syria this formula doesn’t work because the Syrian Mujaheddin do not have those military installations. 

    Few Syrians will live at the end but Assad wont be able to survive and his alawite sect and the Iranian majoosis will be the ultimate target by the angry mobs. Bushra Assad sensed it and fled to Dubai .

    1. Although I do not agree with your rhetoric, I strongly believe that it will be the end of the Assad rule if he uses ONLY one of those… The international community has zero tolerance to weapons of mass destruction.

        the end of the assad rule or any other dictatorship for that matter doesnt depend on how warlike assad is or which abc-weapon he uses. if that was the case all the western regimes would have disappeared men zaman….
        hence, your claim that “international” community has zero tolerance to WMD is a pure lie. 
        Poor inhabitans of fallujah are stil suffering from your so-called “zero” tolerance to WMD, let alone the poor japanese people, just to name a few. So screw “international” (western) community and screw its double standard!!!

        1. Israel used depleted Uranium, Phosphorus munitions On Gaza. Israel also used cluster bombs on south Lebanon what did the international community do? Remember the Goldstone report by a south African Jewish judge it was wiped of the map!! Bashar is preparing this for the terrorist apartheid state.

      2. About the Roman characteristics 

        When Mustawrid al-Qurashi was sitting with ‘Amr ibn al-‘As, he said, “I heard the Prophet say, ‘The Hour will come when the Romans will be in the majority.’ ‘Amr asked him, “What are you saying?” He said, “I am repeating that which I heard from the Prophet.” 
        ‘Amr said, “If you say this, it is true, because they have four good characteristics: they are the most able to cope with tribulation, the quickest to recover after disaster and to return to the fight after disaster, and are the best as far as treating the poor, weak and orphans is concerned. They have a fifth characteristic which is very good; they do not allow themselves to be oppressed by their kings.” (From the book of Ibn Kathir)

        The Europeans are the Romans although their empire of the past were end but Romans in general are Europeans.The above attributes resembles to the Europeans in Europe,America,Australia,Canada etc. Their social security system ,health care ,war capability etc bear all the hall mark. 

        But we have seen some abnormality too such as war brutality ,using nukes (DU) and that is because the Roman power structure is heavily infiltrated by the Khazars(The tribe of Gog and Magog)the Askenazi Jews.This is the reason the Romans can not function according to their norm and ethics.

        If you have disagreement about Gog and Magog being the Askenazi Jews i.e. the Zionist Jews then you may read the Bible verse regarding this tribe. I can prove it conclusively from the Bible if you wish to know.

    2. He is preparing the Chemical weapons for Israel for when they attack Iran soon it is said to be from September 25th this month to before the November 6th election. Just like Israel today used tens of thousands of troops for military maneuvers in the Golan.

      1. Israel will never attack Iran but the Taliban will. And this attack will be jointly with the Romans. At the moment it is inconceivable to understand this but soon it will be clear. Israels local strength is Iran and Hezbushaitan. 

        I have learned from the hadis that Iran will be attacked by the Muslims and the Romans under a treaty. The Romans will break the treaty and attack the Muslims later. But they both successfully will take the Majoosis out of the Iranian hole. 

        1. Why do i even bother with you?

     ‘”It was for use against Israel, of course,” he said.’, unless it became necessary to use it in Lebanon, naturally.

  10. There is a spiritual warfare going on behind the scenes………Revelation 12:17
    And the dragon was enraged with the woman (Israel), and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

    1. The Ashkenazi Jews are from the tribe of Gog and Magog which Bible prophesied also we know this from the Islamic prophesy.
