Syrian Rebels Post Video of Outcome of Assad’s Chemical Weapons

A video uploaded to YouTube by Syrian rebels on Saturday seems to indicate that Syrian President Bashar Assad is attacking opposition forces with chemical weapons.

The video is allegedly taken in a suburb of Aleppo, where Syria’s largest stockpile of chemical weapons is believed to be stored.

Warning: Video is graphic and potentially disturbing to children

London’s Sunday Times reported that Israeli commandos have infiltrated Syria with the mission of recording information about Assad’s weapons depots and the transportation of chemical weapons to new locations.

On Wednesday, the London Times reported that the US and other allies were considering launching military reprisals on Assad’s forces in response to the chemical weapons use.

Syria is believed to hold the world’s third largest chemical weapons hoard.

Assad’s forces have killed an estimated 42,000 people in the almost two years since Syria’s Arab Spring began.

  1. If you read or understand the effects of Sarin or Mustard gas – this is not the results of that. These people would not be waiting for medical attention, they would be dead.
    This looked more like burns from an explosion of sorts.

  2. Garden State says:

    Sarin is a nerve agent and doesn't cause skin injury. It is, however, untrue that all people exposed to sarin would be dead. In the Sarin attack on the Tokyo subway 13 people were killed, 50 severely injured and nearly 1000 people had temporary vision problems. As far as the effects of the mustard gas, you definitely would see skin burns and their appearance would be delayed. Medical treatment would be similar to that required by any conventional burn.
