Syria - No Chemical Weapons Used ?

Now it seems to be clear that a mortar attack of Syrian Free Army units in Aleppo did not use a chemical weapon as announced by Syrian government and reported by state TV. Casualties observed with breathing problems cannot necessarily be related to a chemical attack. Furthermore, state reported killings of 25 persons cannot be reached by only using "chlorine filled grenades". Such rather primitive weapon had once been used in the trench warfare of World War I. At that time, many soldiers had been severely wounded, however not killed, on the battle-fields of Verdun and Ypern, including later Nazi leader Adolf Hitler who would have not survived a documented gas attack if that weapon had been such dangerous as reported by Syrian government sources.

Syrian rebels reject accusations from the regime of having used chemicals.

وفي غضون ذلك, قالت منظمة الصحة العالمية إنها سترسل إمدادات طبية إلى مدينة حلب اليوم الأربعاء، "لكنها لا تستطيع التحقق من أن أسلحة كيميائية استخدمت هناك". ونقلت رويترز عن المتحدث باسم المنظمة طارق جاسرفيتش قوله إن المنظمة سترسل إمدادات طبية لعلاج حالات الصدمة إلى حلب من مخزوناتها في طرطوس.ـ

In that frame, the World Health Organization [WHO] said it would send medical support to the town of Aleppo on Wednesday, " but it would be impossible for them to be sure of the use of chemical weapons there ". And Reuters [press agency] reported the [spokesperson] of the organization, [Derek Yasser Fitch ?], saying the organization would send medical aid for the treatment of shock cases from their stocks in Tartous to Aleppo.

The Free [Syrian] Army charged the regime being responsible for the use of chemical weapons.
