The Syrian government has accused various foes of Damascus - including Israel and the US - for providing support to opposition forces to carry out a string of reported chemical attacks in the embattled country over the past year, Syrian state news agency SANA reported Tuesday.
The Syrian Foreign Minister has reportedly penned letters to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the UN Security Council seeking to absolve forces loyal to President Bashar Assad of perpetrating toxic attacks, including one on August 21, 2013 that killed hundred of civilians in the Ghouta district near Damascus.
"Reports, studies and documented researches abound as to the involvement of the US, Turkey and several other countries, whether directly or indirectly, in these appalling carnages in Syria, including Khan al-Assal on March 15, 2013,'' read the letter that also listed Saudi Arabia and rebel groups as responsible for the attacks.
