In the complex world of war truth is often hard to find. The recent events in Syria are dreadful and touch the heart of God, God who is just and righteous, who hates evil. The political imperatives for action are questionable. Evidence against the perpetrators of this crime remains unclear. Despite what some media would report, here is the testimony of one inspector.
Testimony from victims now strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin Nerve Gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior UN diplomat said Monday.
Carla del Ponte, a member of the UN Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.
But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons (CW), according to the BBC, she added that more investigation was needed.
Our job is to pray for mercy for this nation. It seems to be being sucked into the vortex of a storm of catastrophic magnitude that threatens the surrounding nations as well. God sees and knows all things. Stop and listen and wait and hear his heart as you pray for this nation today.
