Syrian Activists: Assad Just Launched Chemical Attack

This is extremely unconfirmed for two reasons: first, it is not independently verified and only comes from anti-Assad activists. Second, this comes from Al-Jazeera, well-known as one of the worst news "sources" on the planet. Regardless, it is still interesting.

Video purporting to show the effects of the chemical attack:

From Al-Jazeera:
Seven people have died in Homs after they inhaled a "poisonous gas" used by government forces in a rebel-held neighbourhood, activists said.

Activists also told Al Jazeera on Sunday night that scores of others were affected in al-Bayyada neighbourhood. Side effects reported include nausea, relaxed muscles, blurred vision, and breathing difficulties.

Residents said they did not know the nature of the gas used.

"The situation is very difficult. We do not have enough facemasks. We don't know what this gas is but medics are saying it's something similar to Sarin gas," Raji Rahmet Rabbou, an activist in Homs, told Al Jazeera.
