Senior Israeli defense officials on Wednesday said that the military of Syrian President Bashar Assad is believed to have as much as three tons of chemical weapons, despite a 2013 agreement ordering the country to dispose of its stockpiles.

The Syrian government’s chemical weapons program has been the subject of fierce scrutiny in recent weeks, after a deadly chemical attack in northern Syria earlier this month killed more than 80 civilians.

A senior Israeli military official said that Assad’s military is believed to possess between one and three tons of chemical weapons.

Assad has fervently denied that Syria was responsible for carrying out the chemical attack, asserting that the government no longer possesses chemical weapons and would not use them even if it did. Days after the April 4 attack, President Trump ordered a missile strike on the Syrian military airbase from which the chemical attack is believed to have been launched.

That move was widely hailed by world leaders, while Syrian and Russian government officials condemned the U.S. attack as an act of aggression.

Wrong : they neither say if they have or if they haven’t. Thus, as we built their Dimona which is nothing else than the replica of the reactor we used to build our nuclear arsenal 😆 You may note that nonetheless they didn’t signed the NPT but also no treaty on chemical or biological weapons. The process to separate isotopes without many huge gas centrifugals but in a “small” laboratory is a 1973 Israeli patent… Note that those who curse Golda Meir in the region surely don’t know they can be happy she was PM : Moshe Dayan wanted to… Read more »

Wrong. AFAIK. Israel has signed but not ratified the Chemical Weapons Convention. Which basically means You guarantee others must keep the treaty while You do not. Tongue out.

p.s. Their nuclear and chemical ambiguity is not amusing.

Wrong. The terrorists did not give their chemical weapons away.

Their problem. The precursors and sarin are unstable.

If Zionist say they believe it means they do not know but slander anyway. Israel has signed but not ratified the Chemical Weapons Convention. Do that first then make Your stupid watchdog comments.

p.s. That 1 to 3 tons of chemical arms are unaccounted is a known fact. Because two chemical storage facilities were in the territory of the rebels.

Nobody denies that the rebels used it. Tongue out.

BTW. One rebel storage facility is shown as pic in the article.
