Doctors without Borders: Evidence Syrian rebels used sarin, nerve gas, in the Damascus suburb attack

    Wednesday, August 28, 2013   No comments

French charity Medecins sans Frontieres (Doctors without Borders) reported that 355 people died in the attack.  However, evidence from witnesses indicates Syrian rebels used a chemical weapon in last week’s attack, not regime forces, a senior UN official has said.

Carla del Ponte, a member of the UN Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, said there were "strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof," that rebels had used sarin nerve gas in the Damascus suburb attack.

She added that even so, more investigation was needed, as she had not yet seen evidence that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons. 


The Syrian government also maintains that it is the rebels that are using chemical weapons and not the government.  Syria's Deputy Foreign Minister, Faisal Maqdad, slammed the US, UK and France for helping rebel groups use chemical weapons.
