Syrian rebel leader says Assad moving chemical weapons to Lebanon, Iraq
ISTANBUL, Sept 14
ISTANBUL, Sept 14 (Reuters) - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces have started moving some of their chemical weapons to Lebanon and Iraq in the last few days to evade a possible U.N. inspection.
General Selim Idris said rebel brigades regard the proposed U.S.-Russian deal to eliminate Assad's chemical arsenal as a blow to their two-and-a-half-year uprising to remove Assad.
There was no immediate comment from Syrian authorities.
