Syrian rebels possess the ability to produce chemical weapons that would be used as a last resort should they face chemical strikes from the Bashar Assad regime, a political counselor to the Free Syrian Army claimed in an interview with Turkey’s official Anatolia news agency last week.
Bassam al-Dada claimed that opposition forces already have the precursor substances and technical understanding to manufacture chemical agents. No other substantiating details were provided in a Hindu news report to back up his claim.
Rebel forces would only carry out chemical attacks if they are first attacked with such weapons by Damascus, al-Dada said. “If we ever use them, we will only hit the regime’s bases and centers,” he said.
