Syrian opposition advocated that the statements saying the UN and Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) had begun to annihilate the chemical arsenal of Assad regime did not reflect the truth.
A former Captain of Syrian army Abdussalam Abdurazaq, also an expert on chemical and biological war, spoke to Anadolu Agency on Tuesday.
Mentioning a news on media saying an arms inspector expressed that tanks were used to destroy the chemical weapons, Abdurrazaq said, "Only ammunition can be destroyed by this way, but annihilation of poison substances is not possible."
Poison substances can be annihilated only by being burned in laboratories, which is a demanding work and can last for years, said the captain.
Noting delivery of chemical weapons to an international inspection was to the detriment of Syria, Abdurrazaq also said, "Syrian opposition is not on side of an agreement which ignores Syrian people."
The former captain also claimed that the Assad regime gave a number of chemical weapons to Lebanese militant group Hezbollah.
Meanwhile, Khalid Hodja, a representative of Syrian National Coalition for Opposition and Revolutionary Forces (SMDK) in Turkey, said that delivery decision of chemical weapons was made by Assad regime with force of US and Russia.
The decision was given without a consultation with Syrian opposition and the related parties of the agreement were Syrian regime, US and Russia, not the Syrian opposition, stated Hodja.
Hodja also added, "Opponents wanted a termination in death. Agreement of Russia and US does not meet the demands. A 2% of the people were killed by chemical weapons, whereas explosive keg, phosphor bombs, cluster bomb, thermobaric bomb and ballistic missiles are mostly used. More than 100,000 people were killed by conventional weapons."
Meanwhile, an annihilation process was claimed to have started with heavy vehicles last week.Last Mod: 08 Ekim 2013, 17:10
