Reports are starting to surface about chemical weapons being used by armed rebel fighters in Syria. The weapon was said to have been deployed in the north of the country and killed 15 civilians.
True or not such a statement it will have raised the civil war to a new level and it’s feared it may provide the government with an excuse to retaliate with the same type of weapon. The BBC report says:
“Terrorists launched a missile containing chemical products into the region of Khan al-Assal in the province of Aleppo, killing 15 people, mainly civilians”
The story was released by the state news agency Sana. The Syrian government often refer to the rebel fighters as terrorists. There is so far no independent confirmation of the report.
