Israeli Report Warns of Syrian Chemical Weapons Available to Hezbollah

Experts at the Security Research Institute in northern Israel (Alma) have warned of the danger of Syrian chemical weapons falling into the hands of the Lebanese Hezbollah and other armed militias working with it.

A report circulated to the media stated that the Syrian CERS complex, which officially appears as an institute for civil scientific research, has come under almost absolute Iranian control, and was currently managed by the Lebanese Hezbollah.

The report claimed that the CERS center included about 20,000 Syrian officers and experts in the production of weapons of all kinds, including chemical arms. It was established in the 1980s and has several facilities spread throughout Syria.
