Official Report: US Backed Groups Proven to Use Sarin Gas in Syria from 2013 Onward

Video proves UN knew of FSA Sarin gas use in 2013

OPCW: American Backed Groups Use Chemical Weapons in Syria Not Gov’t Forces

TEHRAN (FNA) – The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has confirmed the traces of the sarin gas used in Syria are not linked with the Syrian government’s former stockpile of chemical weapons, a report by the OPCW said Friday.

The report corroborates the Syrian government’s assertions that the faction responsible for the chemical attack, as well as 11 other instances of chemical weapons use, was the Syrian opposition, masddar reported.

The report also substantiates last month’s claims from Ahmed al-Gaddafi al-Qahsi, cousin of Muammar Gaddafi, who said that the chemical weapons used in the incident had been stolen from Libya and later smuggled into Syria via Turkey by militants.

The announcement follows an investigation carried out by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) at the request of the Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian government.

“In one instance, analysis of some blood samples indicates that individuals were at some point exposed to sarin or a sarin-like substance” said Ahmet Uzumcu, the head of the OPCW.

When the devastating sarin gas incident left some 1400 civilians dead in East Ghouta in 2013, the United States, European Union and Arab League were quick to accuse Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian military of utilizing its chemical weapons to combat the militant groups in the Syrian capital.

Subsequently, the Syrian government agreed with Russia and the US administration to have its stockpile safely demolished in Norway. Less than a month ago, it was announced that the entirety of the chemical stockpile had been safely disposed of.

Prior to the 2013 attack, the Syrian Arab News Agency reported that the Syrian Army had seized chemical gas equipment from a militant field hospital in the Western port city of Lattakia.

It cited a field commander stating that the nature of the equipment suggested militants had been planning to carry out chemical or biological attacks and blame the government.

Commander Describes ISIL as US Proxies in Region

TEHRAN (FNA) Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces for Logistics Major General Mostafa Izadi warned against the western powers’ plots to stage large-scale proxy war against the regional countries through terrorist groups, the ISIL in particular.

“By making an instrumental use of the ISIL to fight wars on behalf of them, the West is looking for further penetration into the region through waging proxy wars,” General Izadi said on Thursday night, addressing a ceremony in the Northeastern Khorassan Razavi province.

He also warned against the US’s increasing support for the terrorist groups, specially the ISIL, in the region.

In relevant remarks in May, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan blasted the US for hiring the ISIL terrorist group to fight proxy wars against the regional states.

“The crimes committed by the ISIL terrorist grouplet and whatever created under the name of Takfiri groups in the region are proxy acts by the US,” Dehqan said.

Warning that the US and the Zionist regime were always after striking Islam, he said, “Unfortunately, certain Islamic countries have been fooled by the enemies and are acting in compliance with the plots hatched by the US and the Quds Occupying Regime.”

Dehqan also warned that the US was attempting to create rift among Muslims and coax them into fighting against each other with the help of the terrorist groups, including the ISIL.

On Thursday, the Syrian army and the NDF crushed terrorists groups in Lattakia and won back new areas in the province, including several strategic heights, in a move seen by military analysts as a groundbreaking victory near the Turkish border.
