Syria conflict: Toxic chemicals 'used systematically' in attacks
BBC News ^ | June 18, 2014

A team from the world's chemical weapons watchdog believes toxic chemicals such as chlorine are being used in a "systematic manner" in Syria.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons sent a fact-finding mission to the country's north last month to investigate several incidents.

The inspectors' preliminary report says information was gathered that seemed to corroborate the testimony of medics.

But an attack on their convoy prevented them presenting definitive conclusions.

“The inspectors’ preliminary report says information was gathered that seemed to corroborate the testimony of medics”

Their convoy couldn’t quite make it to the front
But their main source was a guy in a green hat who was there at every attack mashallah, and saw children dying by the hundreds, no thousands. And villagers all swear the bombs all came from Syrian forces targeting schools and hospitals, for no reason whatsoever.

A firm case for war against Assad! Let the bombing begin.

Bravo Assad, keep at it. I can’t think of anything better than gassing ISIS.
