Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces have started moving some of their chemical weapons to Lebanon and Iraq in the last few days to evade a possible UN inspection, said rebel forces.

General Selim Idris said rebel brigades regard the proposed US-Russian deal to eliminate Assad's chemical arsenal as a blow to their two-and-a-half year uprising to remove the Syrian President.

There was no immediate comment from Syrian authorities.
