Islamist militants used, yesterday, toxic gas to halt the Syrian Army’s advance in in the Eastern Ghouta after days-long battles whereby the government troops managed to reclaim territories from rebel groups.

A military source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told an Al-Masdar News reporter in Damascus that rebels bombed government troops with homegrown shells filled with nerve gas.

“Several soldiers suffered breathing difficulties after the attack and were immediately taken to a military hospital. Thankfully, all of them are now in stable conditions”, the source added.

Both the Syrian government and opposition armed groups exchanged accusations about the 2013 Ghouta Chemical Attack where at least 280 people have been killed, thousands others injured.

In the same year, dozens of government troops were killed in a suspected attack with Sarin gas in Khan al-Assal, nearly 14 km to the west of the northern city of Aleppo.

No way to stop those ops until the war criminals are taken out. Sorry but bringing justice is more important for the people than ceasefire deals made with usa out of obedience and fear not to protect people.

Je n’irai pas jusqu’à dire qu’Assad est un ange, un régime à parti unique avec la peine de mort, j’en pense la même chose que tous nos compatriotes mais c’est clair qu’il n’est pas non plus un frapadingue chargé à la coco façon Saddam, que jusqu’à maintenant, il n’y a AUCUNE preuve d’utilisation d’armes chimiques par l’état syrien, que le massacre de Goutha était clairement un false-flag pour faire porter le chapeau à Assad et vraissemblablement, c’est Jaysh-al-Islam qui a balancé le sarin (cf. l’ex expert en balistique de l’ONU+prof du MIT qui ont enquêté, comme quoi le “Machin” n’est… Read more »

I totally agree with Abu Mini! Such kind of masks are just OK in case of some epidemics like flu and are far to be the best as air can pass from the sides! In case of chlorine, you need the classic gas mask with the filter. In case of mustard gas, the full NBC/Hazmat is highly recommanded ’cause it burns the skin too. In case of nerve gas like Sarin, Tabun, Soman and VX, consider the full NBC suit as mandatory : the poison will even pass through your skin. If you haven’t the time to wear it or… Read more »

Gee, no mention of this in the American mainstream media. How surprising – NOT!
