While doing a bit of research on the Syrian Crisis,I came across 2 news articles ,which according to the search feature have yet to be discussed.They
add to the mounting evidence that the Rebels, both have obtained and are willing to use chemical weapons. In this case ,Sarin Gas
The first link is from Russia today dated May 30th 2013 Claiming that Syrian terroists have been found in Turkey with 2kg of Sarin
2 kg of Sarin found
Turkish security forces found a 2kg cylinder with sarin gas after searching the homes of Syrian militants from the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Nusra Front who
were previously detained, Turkish media reports. The gas was reportedly going to be used in a bomb.
The sarin gas was found in the homes of suspected Syrian Islamists detained in the southern provinces of Adana and Mersia following a search by
Turkish police on Wednesday, reports say. The gas was allegedly going to be used to carry out an attack in the southern Turkish city of Adana.
On Monday, Turkish special anti-terror forces arrested 12 suspected members of the Al-Nusra Front, the Al-Qaeda affiliated group which has been dubbed
"the most aggressive and successful arm” of the Syrian rebels
So this is evidence that they can at the very least obtain said materials.
The second article is a bbc 1 dated 6th may 2013 Regarding UN weapon inspector Carla De Ponte.
She explains that there is evidence that the rebel forces have used chemical weapons ,although she goes on to say she cant be 100 % sure.
Evidence for rebel sarin gas use
Testimony from victims of the conflict in Syria suggests rebels have used the nerve agent, sarin, a leading member of a UN commission of inquiry has
Carla Del Ponte told Swiss TV that there were "strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof".
Ms Del Ponte did not rule out the possibility that government forces might also have used chemical weapons.
Later, the commission stressed that it had "not reached conclusive findings" as to their use by any parties.
"As a result, the commission is not in a position to further comment on the allegations at this time," a statement added.
The BBC's Imogen Foulkes in Geneva says the statement was terse and shows that the UN was taken by surprise at Ms Del Ponte's remarks
I am not sure why these things have been overlooked as they are quite important due to recent events.
The evidence just seems to be mounting up.
Sorry if these events have been discussed before ,I did a search and could not find them.
