The Fate of Syria’s Chemical and Biological Weapons



The Fate of Syria’s Chemical and Biological Weapons

by Dr. Dany Shoham

BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 177, August 6, 2012

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Israel has good reason to fear that Syria’s chemical and biological weapons arsenal could fall into the wrong hands  – to terrorist elements within Syria, to an even more  hostile Syrian regime, or to Hizballah and Iran. Yet Israel and the West hold limited options. Bombarding these arms stockpiles could result in significant environmental pollution. The best scenario is an agreed regime transformation, with secured
transposition of the arsenal to a stable, sane central 
authority.
