Syrians Reportedly Hit With Poison Gas

Poison gas was reportedly used on civilians in Deir ez-Zor, Syria, on Friday night, according to the Local Coordination Committee, an opposition-linked monitor of the conflict. “A massive fleeing taking place in Junena village after the residents reported smelling weird odors...,” the group wrote on Facebook. This account has not been confirmed, but it follows recent reports of poison-gas attacks using mustard and chlorine agents, blamed on both ISIS fighters and Bashar al-Assad’s military.
