2 Groups In Syrian Give Figures Of Damascus Casualties As 1000+

Last edited Sun Sep 8, 2013, 01:54 AM - Edit history (1)

And here are two reports from 2 other organizations that comport with 1000+ casualties, the first one is IN GHOUTA.

1. The Unified Medical Revolutionary Office of Eastern Ghouta reported that 1,302 were killed in the attack, about 70 percent of whom were women and children, al-Baik said.

At least 9,838 others were wounded, he said.

2. In a Saturday report, the Foundation for Defence of Syrian Human Rights claimed the regime used chemical weapons 28 times between July 13th and August 21st. There were 23 incidents in and around Damascus, most recently the attack in Eastern and Western Ghouta, which killed a total of 1,845 and injured 9,924, it said.

1. Is death by nerve toxin differentiated there?

I have little doubt this was done by regime forces, and that it was BIG.

My impression is that the sarin rockets were part of a large artillery barrage with conventional and chemical ordinance involved. Is that correct?

If so, we might expect to see a total death toll higher than the number of sarin deaths, if you see what I mean.


(I asked this in a reply elsewhere, but it seems more sensible to ask here in your own OP)
