Syria rebels possess ground-to-ground missiles and sarin, and a UN report on chemical weapons use shows they carried out attacks near Damascus, a high-ranking Syrian security source said Tuesday.
"I categorically deny that we have used sarin gas, for the reason that we had no interest in doing so. We were winning in the battlefield," the official said a day after a UN report on an August 21 attack was published.
"It is generally the losers who adopt such a suicidal attitude. On the contrary, the army was winning," he told AFP.
