HAMA, SYRIA (5:45 A.M.) – The Islamist rebels in the northern Hama countryside accused the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAYF) of using chlorine gas at the town of Kafr Zita on Saturday, causing more than 30 casualties.

Photos were posted by pro-rebel social media activists on Saturday, showing a number of people being treated in a field hospital.

Al-Masdar News is unable to verify these claims made by opposition activists; however, both sides have accused one another of using chemical weapons in northern Hama.

Kafr Zita has long been under the control of the Islamist rebels and the target of several airstrikes by the Syrian Air Force due to its large presence of militants.

That is clear: once it is “bombing hospital” next time it is a “chemical attack” and third there are “pictures of dead children”. This system comes up again and again. Stupid propaganda … ✌

Muhaha, I was right : they announced it was dropped by choppers!
Chlorine barrel bombs? ROFL! Anybody with chemistry knowledge would NEVER use such a way to deliver chlorine or even ANY “combat” gas. And well, I don’t see, as from these pseudo rebels, Syrian state is supposed to slaughter its people, why they would use chlorine which is simply an incapacitating gas just a little more powerful than CS tear-gas! The only interest to drop some would be to help boots with gas masks to take points!

Syria has signed the convention against chemical weapons, so, no! And It’s much better like that! But what they’d better use much more napal : in many cases, what took days or weeks to take would have been dealt in minutes with napalm.
