A U.N. official says there are strong suspicions that Syrian rebel forces have used the deadly nerve agent sarin gas in the country's civil war.
Carla Del Ponte told an Italian-Swiss TV station that the findings come after interviews with doctors and Syrian victims now in neighboring countries.
Del Ponte, the commissioner of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry for Syria, said the notion isn't surprising, given the infiltration of foreign fighters into the Syrian opposition.
But rebel Free Syrian Army spokesman Louay Almokdad said rebels don't even have unconventional weapons, nor do they want any.FULL STORY

And isn't wind a factor in fall out from radiation too?
Not at a point of detonation! Plus humans can take steps to minimize exposure to fallout......with chemicals, with no warning, you are in for a painful death!
It isn't the airstrikes in themselves but what the scenario spells for US as they add another dimension to the conflict that matters.

Good day all.
So it the loyalists or the rebels who have the sarin? He said/he said scenario.
