U.S. intercepts Syrian officials’ phone conversations regarding use of chemical weapons

Last week, several media outlets reported that the Syrian government troops used the large-scale of chemical weapons near Damascus. According to preliminary information, more than 600 people were killed. Syria's opposition argues that the number of victims has reached 1300. But the government refuses these claims.

Last Wednesday, in the hours after a horrific chemical attack east of Damascus, an official at the Syrian Ministry of Defense exchanged panicked phone calls with a leader of a chemical weapons unit, demanding answers for a nerve agent strike that killed more than 1,000 people. Those conversations were overheard by U.S. intelligence services, the Cable has learned.

But the intercept raises questions about culpability for the chemical massacre. It is assumed that the leader of a chemical weapons unit decided this attack freely. Cable notes that despite all this, there is no doubt about the use of chemical weapons. The phone conversations, testimony of local doctors and video shootings of the victims proof it also.

Media outlets report that military interventions against Syria can be started tomorrow. This issue will be discussed at the British Parliament and Brussels tomorrow. Moscow considers that West is trying to create an artificial pretext for military intervention in Syria.

Yesterday, it was reported that the US president had not decided to launch strikes to Syria. Pentagon officials argue that they are developing several options for resolving the conflict, including the use of force.
