BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) struck a jihadist gas factory in the Idlib Governorate town of Khan Sheikhoun today.

In addition to Murtada’s claim, Syrian Arab Army soldiers in northern Hama denied the use of chemicals weapons today, despite allegations by opposition activists regarding a sarin gas attack.

According to the pro-opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), at least 35 civilians were killed by this alleged sarin gas attack.

The Syrian National Council has called on the United Nations to immediately investigate this attack.

Correction: Hussein Murtada claimed explosives filled with chemical substances by jihadist rebels prematurely exploded in Khan Sheikhoun earlier today.

  1. Hitting a home laboratory or its storage fits to details of this report.

    IMHO Home grown sarin is highly contaminated with acid byproducts. But it can be used for nuisance propaganda attacks with some casualties.

    p.s. A sarin factory or the alleged attack with sarin gas bombs would kill a significant part of the towns population. Not only 18 or 35 people. Sarin is an arm of mass destruction.

    Or the trike set free precursors that were stored at the facility.
    The pic does not show helping people contaminated with sarin.
    The helpers are not equipped for that. With sarin they’d die too.

      Such an Honest John missile’s warhead, if opening over the Olympic Games L.A.’s stadium, spreading its sarin cluster ammo, each one with 690 grams in, would just simply kill the 80-85k people in the stadium…
      It’s 81x more toxic than hydrogen cyanide.

      “Sarin is highly toxic, whether by respiratory or dermal exposure. The toxicity of sarin in humans is largely based on calculations from studies with animals. The general consensus is that the lethal concentration of sarin in air is approximately 35 mg per cubic meter per minute for a two-minute exposure time by a healthy adult breathing normally (exchanging 15 liters of air per minute)”
      => This means that you have breathed 1.05mg!
      As it goes through skin, you’re fucking more likely to enter in skin contact with much more than 1.05mg by operating the area without HazMat suite!
      A single bomblet like those in the warhead has enough poison for a lethal dose over 19714 cubic meters of air and enough to kill +65k ppl by injection… I’m not joking : you kill a 80k ppl filled stadium with a single warhead!

      WHITE HELMETS GRILLED AS LIARS… AGAIN!!!!
