Syrian regime ‘used poison gas’, says FSA

KT News:

Today the Free Syrian Army issued a statement accusing Syrian government forces of using poison gas in an attack on a rebel-held district of the city of Homs.

The statement said they didn’t yet know what type of poison gas was used, but it seemed to have been Sarin gas – the same chemical that Saddam used against our people in Halabja in 1988.

The incident is also reported by Al Jazeera which quotes activists claiming that seven people died when the gas was sprayed in the al-Bayyada neighbourhood.  They say doctors do not have enough face masks to treat the dozens who were injured in the attack.
