The Syrian army has already used a small amount of chemical weapons in a battle near Baba Amr.
In November large arsenals of chemical weapons was transfer from storage facilities on Mount Qassioun near Damascus, which is under the control of the Syrian Air Force Intelligence, to several airports in Syria, in order to load them onto planes for bombing rebel targets.
The Aldemir military airport, on the otskirts of Damascus, is designated as the main base of operations from which aerial bombing with chemical weapons will be carried out.
A large part of Syria’s chemical weapons has been removed from storage at Mount Qassioun and transferred by civilian cars chauffeured from Hezbollah soldiers to Hezbollah strongholds in southern Beqaa Valley in eastern Lebanon.
