It said the symptoms include suffocation and nausea, as well as the trickling of a kind of white liquid from the victims' noses and mouths.
White stuff, huh? We saw that before/same time/a bit late [Sheikh Maqsoud, 13 days earlier]. Looks fake there, so if the same thing hits soldiers... I don't know what to make of that. --Caustic Logic (talk) 23:00, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
Stressing no official comments have been made about the incident, the paper said that the competent authorities started an investigation into the type of the gas.
If this is true, we should expect more updates, maybe. Syria can be tight-lipped about these things. They never did report the December 22 attack in Daraya. --Caustic Logic (talk) 23:00, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
