Meanwhile, Russia rejects accusations of having blocked a Security Council resolution on chemical weapons use in Syria. Russia´s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry call for an objective investigation into chemical weapons use in Damascus. The Chinese government urges the United Nations chemical weapons inspectors, who are in Syria on invitation of the Syrian government, to fully cooperate with the Syrian authorities and to maintain an objective stance.

phone intercepts aug 2013Syrian authorities have intercepted a telephone conversation between a member of the so-called Shuhada al-Bayada Battalion and the terrorists Saudi Arabian liaison, called Adulbasit.

The recording of the telephone intercept provides critical evidence for the terrorist groups use of a chemical weapon in Deir Ballba, in the countryside of Homs and has been broadcast on Syrian National Television.

During the conversation, the member of the Shuhada al-Bayada Battalion told his Saudi Arabian liaison, that the group is comprised of 200 members, who have escaped from al-Bayadah to al-Daar al-Kabera through a tunnel. He added, that the group needs to buy weapons to launch attacks on the city of Homs.

The Cairo – based Saudi Arabian financier in return, asked the Syrian terrorists about details about the group and was told, that one of the achievements of the “Battaliaon” was the use of chemical weapons in Deir Ballba.

The Saudi Arabian financier then asked the terrorist details about how the group plans to receive the money and other details needed for a transaction, assuring the caller about his support, and stating that he supports groups in the countryside of Daraa and Damascus.

Another intercepted phone call revealed that terrorist groups were cooperating to deliver two bottles of the deadly and internationally outlawed war nerve agent Sarin from from the Barzeh neighborhood of Damascus.

In June 2013, Syrian Armed Forces seized 2 kilograms of the deadly nerve agent Sarin in the Faraieh district of the city of Hama, from terrorists belonging to Jabhat al-Nusrah.

Pertaining the Alleged Chemical Weapons Attack on 21 August 2013 and the Subsequent Emergency Session of the UN Security Council. The Russian Foreign Ministry has rejected the claims, that Russia has blocked a UN Security Council Resolution on chemical weapons use in Syria as being untrue. On Thursday, the Ministry issued a statement, saying the

” There is a complete misrepresentation of what has been said and that Russia has blocked something at the Security Council is untrue”. 

Both the United States Secretary of State, John Kerry and his Russian counterpart, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, have called for an objective investigation into the possible use of chemical weapons in the countryside of Damascus on 21 August 2013.

A report on nsnbc international, from 22 August, published under the title “Chemical Weapons Propaganda Prompted Security Council Session”, nsnbc outlines several important aspects of the alleged, large scale chemical weapons attack and ties it to plans to launch a major political and military campaign against Syria in August and September 2013.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry has urged the chemical weapons inspection team, which is currently visiting Syria to fully consult with the Syrian government and to “maintain an objective stance when probing the alleged use of chemical weapons in the countryside of Damascus on Wednesday”.

    Suddenly Syrian intel has the proof of terrorists responsible for the attack … AFTER it has happened
    (supposedly from tapped phone lines)…
    The CIA mercs are used to communicate with satellite phones
    but regarding THIS attack they stick to orinary cell phones/phone cells?
    Some 9/11 plot-writer defected lately, eh?

  2. Jim Jekyll :D
    I understand the point you are making (letting alone the second part of what you say)… hat said…

    It is far from the first time that the Syrian security services have a) intercepted b) published phone calls.

    among other, phone calls with Saad Hariri and the operations room he is running in Turkey. haha

    All published, including audio, here on nsnbc, so you make a good point and we can conclude that money, ammunition and power does not necessarily endow one with “intelligence” :D

  3. Source of this STORY is a blogger who cites Syrian Authorities and Syrian National Television!!!!!

    Of course if it is indeed true Assad is not involved in the chemical attack then the inspectors would have already visited those sites! So far Assad has refused the permission for UN Weapons Inspectors to visit sites of attack.

    • Viva… you are wrong on all counts but I am happy that you are bringing this up, because it is always good to clear out misunderstandings.

      The STORY is of course when something is published on nsnbc international, SANA, or other not overtly anti-Syrian media, while NEWS according to your reasoning apparently is to be found in the WASHINGTO POST, AL-ARABIYA, AL-JAZEERA or other reliable MEDIA… right..

      Besides that, the UN weapons inspectors are in Syria, on invitation of the Syrian government after months of pressure from the Syran government and Russia that they should come. The UN refused because Syria (as well as Russia and China) would not accept a repetition of what happened in IRAQ. BUT OF COURSE, YOU WOULD LIKE A REPETITION OF THE WMD LIED AND CHASE FROM IRAQ TO BE REPEATED IN SYRIA ? — FORGET ABOUT IT..

      As to the locations… Russia, China, the UN inspectors and the Syrian government have DEMANDED AND DEMAND THAT THE SO-CALLED “REBELS” GUARANTY THE INSPECTORS SAFE ACCESS. NO SUCH GUARANTIES ARE GIVEN..

      False on all counts, so continue reading your highly credible MEDIA — we see where that is leading you to.. haha. Thanks for the opportunity mate.

        Fahwad. I guarantee you if we checked the IP address that these two comments have been sent from Israel. Nice that you let them comment though, some people may actually be so disinformed that they believe stuff like what they are saying here.Right, AL-Jazeera is a MEDIA, and whoever isn´t on the paylist of Qatar, Telaviv or MI6 is a BLOG… LOL.. I wonder whether someone is paying these guys.
