Syrian Army Uses Chemical Weapons Against Palestinians


This comes from Syrian opposition sources and may be just another pack of lies. Still it’s worth noting that the only people capable of doing the kinds of things to the Palestinian Muslims that Israel is accused of doing… are other Muslims.

Syrian opposition activists say that the military has used chemical weapons against the Al Yarmouk district of Damascus, an area of the city comprised predominantly of Palestinian refugees, Israel Radio reported.

Palestinian sources said that 22 people have been killed in the area, most from inhalation of poisonous gases.

Why would Assad possibly do such a thing?

In October, Syrian rebels announced they had begun arming sympathetic Palestinians, who would form a group called the Liwa al-Asifa (Storm Brigade) to fight against the PFLP-GC and take its Yarmouk stronghold.

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – General Command has accused the Liwa al-Asifa of trying to stir up trouble within the Palestinian refugee community in Yarmouk, while Syrian rebels have accused the PFLP-GC of stifling Palestinian dissent against Assad.

Last year, Liwa al-Asifa fighters had critically injured a senior PFLP-GC leader and killed four others in a car bombing attack in Yarmouk.

They just bring stability and peace everywhere they go, don’t they? That photo above is of the Yarmouk refugee camp. It’s indistinguishable from most towns and cities… except it’s called a “refugee camp”.

    …and so, how should that affect us? Preferred US Middle East foreign policy (except defense of Israel): Stay the heck out of it!

    Savages killing each other, you have to love the irony.
