British Leader Speaks of ‘Limited’ but ‘Growing’ Evidence of Chemical Weapons in Syria

British Leader speaks outSyrian Rebels

LONDON — As fighting flared in northern areas of Damascus after fierce clashes to the east, Prime Minister David Cameron on Friday echoed the Obama administration’s cautious assessment of the use of chemical munitions in Syria, saying there was “limited” but “growing evidence” that such weapons had been used, probably by government forces.

There was no indication that the British leader, speaking on a BBC television show, was referring to the latest fighting around Damascus, the capital, in which Syrian state media claimed on Thursday that government forces had overrun a strategic, rebel-held town controlling a key insurgent supply corridor to the east of the capital.

On Friday, anti-government activists produced video footage said to show heavy clashes between government forces and rebels in the Barzeh area of northern Damascus, with gray and black smoke rising from battered high-rises into the early morning sky. The provenance of video could not be independently verified.

While the fighting swirled on the ground — with explosions clearly audible from the center of Damascus on Friday — much Western attention has been focused on whether chemical weapons have been used to the extent that they might trigger foreign military intervention, a possibility that Mr. Cameron sought to rule out on Friday.

The British government, like Washington, is concerned to avoid a repetition of events leading to the 2003 invasion of Saddam Hussein’s Iraq when the presence of unconventional weapons, cited as justification for military action, was never corroborated.

The White House said on Thursday that the nation’s intelligence agencies had assessed “with varying degrees of confidence” that the government of President Bashar al-Assad had used the chemical agent sarin on a small scale.

But it said more conclusive evidence was needed before Mr. Obama would take action, referring obliquely to both the Bush administration’s use of faulty intelligence in the march to war in Iraq and the ramifications of any decision to enter another conflict in the Middle East.

On Friday, Mr. Cameron said that while evidence was limited, “there’s growing evidence that we have seen, too, of the use of chemical weapons, probably by the regime. It is extremely serious, this is a war crime, and we should take it very seriously.”

Mr. Cameron said British authorities were trying to avoid “rushing into print” about the use of chemical weapons.

“But this is extremely serious, and I think what President Obama said was absolutely right — that this should form for the international community a red line for us to do more,” he said.

But he repeated that Britain had no appetite to intervene militarily, as it did in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“I don’t want to see that and I don’t think that is likely to happen,” he said. “But I think we can step up the pressure on the regime, work with our partners, work with the opposition in order to bring about the right outcome. But we need to go on gathering this evidence and also to send a very clear warning to the Syrian regime about these appalling actions.”

He was speaking a day after Syria’s state news media said that government forces had “restored complete control” in a strategic, bitterly contested town east of Damascus, offering new claims — disputed by rebel fighters on the ground — that loyalist troops were reversing the flow of battle in some areas, severing a crucial insurgent supply line on the approaches to the capital.

SANA, the official news agency, said that soldiers fighting on the side of President Bashar al-Assad had overwhelmed the opposition in the town, Otaiba, and had “discovered a number of tunnels which were used by terrorists to move and transfer weapons and ammunition.”

Terrorist is the word used by Mr. Assad to describe armed opponents, backed by the West and many Arab states, seeking his overthrow in a revolt that is now more than two years old.

Rebel fighters on the ground said on Thursday that, despite the official claims, the insurgents were still holding on to some parts of Otaiba.

 An activist who had been involved in the fighting and who spoke on the condition that he be identified only as Ammar said the claimed capture of the town was an exaggeration. “Both sides are still fighting,” the activist said. “The regime are attacking from the east side, the Free Syrian Army from the west side.”

Civilians had fled the town, the activist said, acknowledging that the fighting had disrupted rebel supply chains. “We have convoys stopped now because roads have been closed and we can’t use them for the time being.”

A government victory in the town could prove a setback to the rebel effort to amass forces for a thrust closer to Damascus, where government forces remain in control. It would also provide loyalist forces with a morale-bolstering success after a string of losses between Damascus and the Jordanian frontier to the south.

In the contested western Syria town of Qusayr near the Lebanon border, an anti-Assad activist reached through Skype said government forces had bombed the town center with helicopters six times on Thursday, killing and wounding an unspecified number of residents and destroying 25 houses. “We weren’t pulling bodies out,” said the activist, who identified himself as Hadi Abdulla. “We were collecting bits and pieces and putting limbs together.” The Syrian Observatory said at least 10 people were killed.

Qusayr has become a sectarian flash point that has threatened to expand the war into Lebanon. The Lebanese Shiite militant group Hezbollah has sent fighters there in recent weeks, and rebels, who are drawn mostly from Syria’s Sunni majority, have threatened to retaliate across the border in response.

Elsewhere, international concern escalated over the fate of two high-ranking Syrian church clergymen from Aleppo who were kidnapped on Monday. Colleagues of the kidnap victims — the Greek Orthodox archbishop, Paul Yazigi, and the Syriac Orthodox archbishop, Yohanna Ibrahim — said they remained captive, contradicting unconfirmed reports earlier in the week that they had been freed. Their whereabouts and kidnappers were unknown.

Mikhail Bogdanov, the deputy foreign minister of Russia, a supporter of the Syrian government, said on Thursday during a visit to Beirut that Russia condemned the kidnapping and was making efforts to secure the release of the two clergymen.

Alan Cowell reported from London and Hwaida Saad from Beirut, Lebanon. Hania Mourtada contributed reporting from Beirut; Hala Droubi from Dubai, United Arab Emirates; and Rick Gladstone from New York.
