From A Closer Look On Syria
Jump to navigation Jump to search

On May 26, 2013, and again on the night of May 26/27, opposition sources say, the Syrian military again used a small amount of a mysterious chemical gas, this time in and around Harasta, a rebel-infested Damascus suburb. Among those reported attacks we have catalogued here, these, combined, make allegation #16, all since December 2012. The Local Coordinating Committees of Syria, a main conduit of information from rebel fighters, in the second strike "6 were martyred by using the Toxic gases." [1] With civilians not specified, the six reported fatalities would most likely be rebel fighters, and the scant video evidence supports that. "Dozens" of others, apparently fighters too, were affected with watering eyes and breathing difficulties.
