Ex-General In Charge Of Chemical Weapons Says Israeli Strike Targeted Non-Conventional Weapons.. Iranians & Russians 'Habitually Present'
A former Syrian general said Friday that the facility reportedly struck by Israel on Wednesday, near Damascus, produced non-conventional weapons, in addition to conventional arms.
Maj. Gen. Adnan Sillu was previously in charge of the country’s chemical weapons training program.
Sillu’s comments, reported by Israel Radio, seemed inconsistent with those of another ex-general, who claimed on Thursday that there were no chemical weapons at the facility northwest of the Syrian capital.
Maj. Gen. Abdul-Aziz Jassem al-Shallal also said Thursday that Iranian and Russian experts were “habitually present” at the facility.
