Syria Will Never Use Chemical Weapons, If Any, Under Any Circumstances , says Foreign and Expatriates Ministry

DAMASCUS, (ST)- Syria on Saturday reaffirmed that it will not use chemical weapons, if they exist under any  circumstances as it is defending its people against terrorism supported by known countries with the  USA at the  forefront.

Syria's reaffirmation came in two identical letters sent by the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry to the the UN Security Council Chairman and the UN Secretary General.

"over the past years, the U.S. administration has consistently worked to launch a campaign of allegations on the possibility that Syria could use chemical weapons during the current crisis," said the Ministry.

"What raises concerns regarding this news circulated by the media is our serious fear that some of countries backing terrorism and terrorists might provide the armed terrorist groups with chemical weapons and claim that it was the Syrian government which did use the weapons," underscored  the Ministry.

In this context ,it referred to information revealed by the Turkish Yurt newspaper which said that members from al-Qaeda are manufacturing chemical weapons at a laboratory near the Turkish city of Gaziantep, and that they have threatened to use them against the Syrian civilians.

The letters also made reference to the Turkish newspaper indicating footages posted on the internet in which terrorists appear making poisonous gas from chemical materials which al-Qaeda got from a Turkish company and which were tested on living creatures.

It pointed out that the Syrian government, out of its care for its people's lives, had asked the UN Supervision Mission to visit, inspect and calculate the stocks of a private sector chlorine processing plant, located to the east of Aleppo city, after information that the terrorist groups were then planning to take hold of it.

The Supervision Mission however could not do this because the terrorists opened fire on its members as they were trying to visit the plant, the Ministry added.

The Ministry expressed Syria's warning that the terrorist groups might resort to using chemical weapons against the Syrian people, and its denunciation of the international community's inaction to deal with the developments after the terrorist groups recently took hold of a Chlorine processing plant to the east of Aleppo city.

"Syria also denounces not holding the supporters of the terrorist groups to account according to the relevant UN Security Council resolutions," the letters added.

They slammed the hostile campaign against Syria as being characterized by the absence of the moral dimension, saying that "countries which used these or other similar weapons like the US, are not worthy to launch such a campaign, especially that [the US] used the pretext of Iraq possessing weapons of mass destruction (WMD) to justify its invasion and occupation of this Arab country in 2003.

"Syria submitted by the end of 2003 a draft resolution to the UN Security Council on Middle East Zone Free of Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Weapons." asserted the Ministry.

"All of that was in defense of Israel, the only party in the region which has not signed the WMD agreements," it added.

The Ministry concluded its letters by saying that "such campaign doesn’t work with Syria which has always adhered to its independence and sovereignty," stressing that these media campaigns cannot mislead the Syrian people or the international public opinion, which has started to realize the reality of the conspiracies hatched against Syria and the real reasons behind continuing the shedding of the Syrian blood for which the terrorist groups and those supporting them are responsible in front of history and the nations.


Terrorists Destruction of Schools




DAMASCUS,(ST)- Students  of the typical al-Tomoh ( ambition) private school for basic education  in al-Cornich  area in Daraya could not arrive at their school to attend  classes  as they used to every day.

Lessons for the first elementary class for that day started at eight    a. m (Arabic language - mathematics - Islamic Education - Computer - society) but  the classrooms  were empty of  its students in al-Corniche area in  Daraya.  This was  not because of a  festival or a public  holiday , rather they were the  terrorists of al-Nusra Front  of al-Qaeda organization,  who deliberately attacked the school as part of  its goals  to undermine the educational process in Syria.

The terrorists stormed  into the school, which stands in the center of the agricultural area,  to the east of the city  of Darya . The terrorists attacked the building and smashed a number of its  classes . They broke the glass  of the outside door of the school and messed  with its closets and  cupboards . They left the school administration office in a chaos of papers, books and the daily schedules . But,  there on that table , there was one  Student Book (Arabic is my language) . Its front  cover depicts a face of a pretty girl child , over a pile of papers and home works to students , that teachers may not have been  able to correct .

The  terrorists  tampered with the paintings bearing the name of each class off the  halls and threw them on the ground together, with symbolic gifts for as motivation for outstanding students ,  amid shards of  broken glass.
Terrorism  will not be able to hide the  sun of knowledge and learning from  classrooms which were  once lit.
