by END TIME HEADLINES
PROPHECY WATCH:  Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad calls on the international community to put pressure on Israel to destroy its weapons of mass destruction, Press TV reports. Mekdad made the remarks during an interview with Press TV on Tuesday.  He added that Damascus will firmly respond to any Israeli aggression against Syria, but will not use chemical weapons against the regime in Tel Aviv.  Mekdad also said that Damascus welcomes a Russian initiative to place Syrian chemical weapons arsenal under international control, a move that has frustrated US efforts to launch a military offensive against the Arab country. The Syrian official also accused neighboring Turkey of fuelling tensions in the Middle East region in order to serve the interests of Israel and the United states.  The war rhetoric against Syria intensified after foreign-backed opposition forces accused the government of President Bashar al-Assad of launching a chemical attack on militant strongholds in the suburbs of Damascus on August 21.
