Syria has been marred by civil war by over two years. In August, videos emerged which showed alleged use of chemical weapons on civilians outside Damascus.
Critics of President Bashar al-Assad claimed the videos proved the administration was behind the sarin gas attack, and led US President Barack Obama to push for intervention in the country before backing away from the threats when Assad agreed to hand over all his chemical weapons stockpiles.
RT’s Meghan Lopez speaks with Mother Agnes-Mariam de la Croix, founder of the James the Mutilated Monastery in Syria, who says that the videos show the chemical weapons were used by Syrian rebels, not the Assad administration.
