“It is a moral duty to say this. The government of Bashar al-Assad did not use sarin gas or other types of gas in the outskirts of Damascus,” Piccinin said during an interview with Belgium's RTL radio station.

Piccinin stressed that while being held captive, he and fellow prisoner Quirico were secluded from the outside world and had no idea that chemical weapons were deployed. But the conversation which both men overheard suggested that the use of the weapons was a strategic move by the opposition, aimed at getting the West to intervene.

"In this conversation, they said that the gas attack on two neighborhoods of Damascus was launched by the rebels as a provocation to lead the West to intervene militarily,” Quirico told Italy’s La Stampa."We were unaware of everything that was going on during our detention in Syria, and therefore also with the gas attack in Damascus."

Russia says the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) has confirmed that the videos and photos purporting to show the victims of a chemical attack near the Syrian capital, Damascus, were fabricated.

It also said evidence provided by numerous witnesses confirms that militants fighting against the Syrian government used chemical weapons in the Damascus suburb of western Ghouta last month.

The participants in the UN Human Rights Council session warned of the consequences of a military strike against Syria, noting that such an attack would constitute a crude violation of international law.

"The first bullet fired at Syria will be reciprocated by 500 missiles against Tel Aviv," Wahhab, also a former Lebanese minister, said in an interview with Lebanon's Jadidah TV channel on Monday.

"This is no rhetoric, I am speaking the truth and telling you the reality," he added.

Wahhab warned of Syria's retaliatory measures against any possible foreign military aggression, and said Damascus' reaction will not be limited to Israel, but it will also include Turkey and other regional countries and the Persian Gulf littoral states which are collaborating with Washington in the war on Syria.

It is an open secret that the US is training, and heavily linked to, the FSA and foreign-backed militant groups in Turkey and Jordan.

British advisors are assisting militant groups on a variety of levels but the Government continues to insist that it is "non-military".

FSA sources told Sky News that is true, but only in the "broadest sense" of non-military assistance.

The key question for militants is how significant the US attacks, if they come, will be.

Rebels divided over support for U.S. strike #Syria

Rebels divided over support for U.S. strike #Syria | Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. | Scoop.it

The secular rebel leadership, loosely collected under the Free Syrian Army Supreme Military Council and the opposition Syrian National Coalition backed by the U.S, Saudi Arabia and their allies, say they want any U.S strike to be big enough to strategically dent Assad’s military might.

Military Council leaders inside Syria offered cautious backing for any strike, on the condition it was coupled with more material support and weapons to help them shift the balance of power on the ground and enable them to wrestle back power from hostile Islamist forces making gains in the north of the country.

Islamist rebels, fighting for an Islamic state in Syria, meanwhile released videos and statements this week announcing their opposition to any U.S. strike and vowing to confront any American aggression in Syria.

“We, the jihad brigades and all popular Islamic factions on the blessed land of Sham announce our rejection of military intervention by Western infidels against our people,” a group of eight jihadist brigades said in a joint video statement released on YouTube.

“We consider it ... a new aggression against our Islamic nation.”
