Disgraced Syrian general declared Damascus' readiness to use chemical weapons2012-09-19 12:57
Major-General of the Syrian army Adnan Sillu, who had fled from the country to Turkey, has declared Damascus' readiness to use chemical weapons in armed conflict in Syria "in extreme circumstances", the Interfax reported.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"We had a serious discussion about the possible use of chemical weapons, including the places and ways of its use", Sillu said in an interview.
According to him, the likelihood of the use of chemical weapons "is considered as a last resort if the regime looses control over any important population aggregate, such as Aleppo".
Recall, the U.S. President Barack Obama stated the possible use of chemical weapons by Syrian authorities would become "red line", after which Washington would directly interfere in the Syrian crisis.
"A red line for us is we see a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around, or being utilised. That would change my calculus". "There would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons front or the use of chemical weapons", he added.
The President noted that the U.S. and its international partners would continue providing humanitarian and other assistance to the Syrian opposition. This particularly applies to the aid to refugees who are trying to flee from the conflict. According to him, the support of the opposition also includes consultation with its members about a transition period.
