(YNetNews) According to Syrian sources, President Bashar Assad’s regime has developed special vehicles for moving and mixing chemical weapons, the Washington Post reported.

Post commentator, David Ignatius spoke to a Syrian source who received information from a Syrian defector who worked inside a chemical weapons network.

The source was speaking with Ignatius from his hiding place in an Arab country outside Syria, with the “hope of encouraging greater American involvement with the opposition.”

Though suspicious of the source’s motives, and considering the case of an Iraqi defector who delivered fabricated information to US a decade ago in order to catalyze an invasion, Ignatius stressed that the defector’s information was corroborated by independent sources.
