Amir Rapaport - nightmare for Israel - chemical weapons in Syria may end up in dangerous hands

Israel’s Nightmare is beginning to Materialize
Even if the report from Syria about the use of chemical weapons against the
rebels turns out to be false, the concern over the chemical weapon
stockpiles falling into the wrong hands is authentic. A commentary

Israel’s greatest nightmare is beginning to materialize: the vast weapon
stockpiles of the Syrian military are beginning to cease being under
control. Whether if the reports this morning about the use of gas in Syria
are correct or not, the concern that the stockpiles of Bashar Assad’s
chemical weapons fall into the hands of rebel groups or militias from the
remnants of the Syrian military is authentic.

The Syrian military has hundreds of tons of chemical warfare substances. It
is enough that only a tiny percentage of the amount fall into the hands of
elements that are part of the Global Jihad organizations and find a way
outside of Syria to create an unprecedented terror threat. There is also
concern that there will be an attempt to launch chemical weapons via
surface-to-surface missiles that fall into the hands of “irresponsible”
groups, or that Assad will instruct the launch of such weapons the day he
loses his regime.

Either way, this is the first time in history that chemical weapons could
end up beyond the control of a strong military or leader. Israel has
recently conveyed messages that if such weapons make their way towards
Hezbollah in Lebanon, and it will know of it, it will operate in order to
foil the transfer.

The US, on its part, can operate militarily in order to prevent the
unconventional weapons from falling into the hands of “irresponsible”
elements.

These are good reasons for a very high state of tension in Israel’s northern
arena.
