Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said in a television interview Tuesday that Israel is trying to verify information that Iraq was transferring chemical and biological weapons to Syria in order to hide them from U.N. weapons inspectors. According to the Israeli daily Ha’aretz, weapons transferred from Iraq to Syria in recent weeks were apparently earmarked for Hezbollah forces in Lebanon, to be used against Israel in the event of a U.S. offensive against Iraq.
