In the June 2013 assessment, the Pentagon's Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) reports that al-Nusra - al Qaeda's wing in Syria - has a "sarin production cell" that marks al Qaeda's "most advanced sarin plot since al-Qaida's pre-9/11 effort." |
DIA: Al-Nusra's sarin production cell received help from sources in Turkey and Saudi Arabia - two countries deeply involved in the Syria dirty war. They were trying to "obtain sarin precursors in bulk... likely for the anticipated large scale production effort in Syria."
