TEL AVIV — For the first time, Israel has provided details of Syrian Army chemical weapons attacks on Sunni rebels.
Officials said Military Intelligence has determined that Syrian President Bashar Assad was ordering CW attacks on the rebels in several areas around Syria. They said several CW agents were used in reduced form to prevent mass casualties.
“To the best of our professional understanding, the regime has made use of deadly chemical weapons against the rebels in a number of incidents in the past few months,” MI research director Brig. Gen. Itai Brun said.
Hours later, Brun’s assessment of Syrian CW attacks was released by the Israel Army. Brun said the Syrian Army was using several CW agents, particularly sarin, regarded as highly toxic.
“The reduced pupils, the foam coming out of the mouth and other additional signs provide evidence that deadly chemical weapons have been used,” Brun said. “Which chemical weapons? Apparently sarin. The regime is also using chemical weapons that neutralize and are not fatal.”
