Syria blames rebels for alleged chemical attack | Citizens for Legitimate Government:
Syria blames rebels for alleged chemical attack --Foreign fighters are using 'the most extreme weapons,' official says 22 Aug 2013 Foreign fighters and their international backers [CIA] are to blame for a purported chemical weapons attack near Damascus that the opposition says killed at least 100 people, Syria's deputy prime minister Deputy Prime Minister Qadri Jamil told The Associated Press. The statement came as government forces continued to target rebel terrorist strongholds where the alleged attack occurred with airstrikes and artillery for a second day, violence that was likely to complicate any swift investigation into the mysterious circumstances surrounding the deaths. Jamil said foreign militants carried out the attack with the backing of Israel and supporters in the West in a bid to thwart efforts to hold an international peace conference to end the Syrian bloodshed.
