Syrian President Bashar Assad transported some of his country’s chemical weapons to the terrorist group Hezbollah, a Saudi newspaper reported.

The daily Al-Watan, citing opposition leader Kamal al Labwani, reported Monday that the Syrian government hid some of its chemical weapons stockpile in trucks that transport vegetables.

Some of the weapons also were smuggled to Russia, according to Labwani of the Syrian Coalition.

Other unconfirmed reports said that Syria has spread its chemical weapons stockpile throughout 50 locations within the country or to Iraq.

Israel has expressed concern that Syria’s chemical weapons will fall into the hands of terror groups bent on the Jewish state’s destruction, including Hezbollah.
