Report: Assad Transferred Chemical Weapons to Airports


Opposition forces in Syria reported, Tuesday, that the regime of President Bashar Al-Assad transferred some of its chemical-weapons arsenal and equipment for mixing its chemical components to airports in border areas, according to Agence France Presse.

A statement from the Free Syrian Army said, "We in the joint command of the Free Syrian Army inside the country know very well the locations and positions of these weapons." The statement continued, "According to our information, the regime began moving its stocks of weapons of mass destruction several months ago...with the goal of putting pressure on the region and the international community." The group said it was impossible to believe that the Damascus government would use the weapons against Israel.
