US mulls sending anti-aircraft weapons to Syrian opposition

According to an AP report, President Barack Obama may authorize the shipment of new air defense systems to rebel forces in Syria. Citing an unnamed US official, the AP says Obama is considering the idea of sending man-portable air-defense systems, also known as MANPADs, to Syrian opposition groups by way of employing new ways to put pressure on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and boost the opposing rebels, who have lost ground in the conflict over the last few months. The move would mark a notable shift compared to the White House's past statements.

Officials then said the US would send anti-tank rockets and humanitarian aid to the opposition, but noted MANPADs – portable missile-launchers – would not be part of the package, due to fears they could land in extremist hands and potentially be used to take down commercial airliners.

US media hid 2009 UN report showing Israel using chemical weapons against Palestinians

Little US media attention is being paid to claims from a UN commission and Russia that Syrian rebels, not government soldiers under President Bashar al-Assad’s control, were responsible for chemical weapons attacks on August 21 that killed over 300 Syrians. It is not the first time when major US media outlets cover events in favor of the White House policy.

CIA has begun delivering weapons to rebels in Syria

The CIA has begun delivering weapons to rebels in Syria, ending months of delay in lethal aid that had been promised by the Obama administration, according to US officials and Syrian figures. The shipments began streaming into the country over the past two weeks, along with separate deliveries by the State Department of vehicles and other gear — a flow of material that marks a major escalation of the US role in Syria’s civil war.

Claims of chemical weapons use by Syria regime 'utter nonsense' - Putin

According to the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, allegations that Assad's government used chemical weapons in Syria are largely ungrounded. "Syrian government troops are on the offensive and have the opposition contained within several areas. In this situation, to give those calling for intervention such a trump card is utter nonsense," - Putin told journalists in Vladivostok.

At the same time Putin notes that next week's G20 Summit in Russia's St Petersburg could be a good platform to discuss Syria crisis.

'Syrian rebels take responsibility for the chemical attack admitting the weapons were provided by Saudis'

Recent publication by the Ọmọ Oódua 'Syrian rebels take responsibility for the chemical attack admitting the weapons were provided by Saudis' received a strong outcry among the Internet users as some of them claiming that the company’s reports are more credible than allegations against Syrian government made by US authorities.

‘It's more credible than the US saying we have real evidence of Assad using them [chemical weapons]. Assad doesn't get weapons from Saudi Arabia. They don't have ties. The US will use any reason it can to go to war. Even if it means creating one’, writesDylanJamesCo on Reddit.

Syrian rebels used chemical weapons Says Carla del Ponte

Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior UN diplomat said Monday.
Carla del Ponte, a member of the UN Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were "strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof," that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.
But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons, according to the BBC, but she added that more investigation was needed.

Documentary Evidence: Rebels used the chemical weapons in Syria - Russia

On July 9 Russia handed over to the General Secretary of the UN documentary evidence of the fact that it was the opposition rebels who used chemical weapons in Syria and not the government troops. The accusations of Bashar al-Assad's regime of its barbarian methods of conducting war have served for the USA and some EU countries as a pretext to lift the embargo on weapons supplies to the Syrian rebels.

Russian experts have determined that it was the Syrian rebels who on March 19 fired a missile filled with sarin at the suburbs of the town of Aleppo. The Russian documents differ from the US data on the same problem by a very important factor. The USA received its samples via intermediaries. The Russian tests were made right on the site where the ammunition exploded. The samples were tested in Russian laboratories, which are certified by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

State Gov in trouble over illegal importation of weapons

Zamfara State Governor Abdul’Aziz Yari Abubakar has been accused of purchasing guns and ammunition for the purpose of arming vigilance groups. Vice Chairman of the Senate Committee on National Security and Intelligence, Senator Sha’aba Lafiagi made the allegation in the Senate yeterday during a debate on a motion entitled: “The plan of the Zamfara State Governor to arm vigilance groups in the state with rifles.”
The upper chamber was, however, divided as some Senators supported the governor’s efforts to secure the state while others argued that the matter should not be narrowed down to Zamfara, but to other states facing similar security challenges.
However, the Senate, in its resolution, urged President Goodluck Jonathan to deploy more security personnel in Zamfara and other states facing similar security challenges. Senator Basheer Garba Mohammed, alongside 46 other Senators, sponsored the motion.

Lawlessness: Provision of weapons to Syrian opposition by West contradicts Geneva 2 policies - Lavrov

The Western activities aimed at providing weapons to the Syrian opposition means that the West supports opposition activists' condition that the balance of power should be restored in the world before Geneva 2 is held.

"The activities aimed at providing weapons to the opposition, which have recently intensified, only means that the precondition [set by the opposition to restore the balance of power on the battle ground] is supported by the West and other countries which are going to supply such weapons, this contradicting the very concept of the conference, which is to begin without any preconditions," Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told a press conference following his negotiations with his Moroccan counterpart.

FULL UPDATE: Information on use of chemical weapons by Syria's Assad fabricated - senior Russian lawmaker

A senior Russian lawmaker said on Friday that information on the use of chemical weapons by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces was fabricated and suggested the United States would use it to justify intervention in the conflict.

"Information about the use by Assad of chemical weapons has been fabricated in the same place as the lies about (Saddam) Hussein's weapons of mass destruction," Alexei Pushkov, head of the foreign policy committee in the lower chamber of the Russian parliament, said on Twitter. "Obama is taking the same path as George Bush."
A U.S. official said on Thursday that President Barack Obama has authorized sending U.S. weapons to Syrian rebels for the first time, after the White House said it has proof the Syrian government had used chemical weapons against opposition forces.
