Syrian rebels post video showing the testing of chemical weapons
The labels just happen to be in English, I wonder where they came from? This comes as the mainstream media has been constantly reporting that the Syrian government itself is the entity most likely to use chemical weapons along with statements from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama.
Such reports date back to February of this year:
I have also covered this subject in June of 2012 followed by an article covering the Assad government’s statement admitting the possession of chemical weapons after which the rebels said they would not turn such weapons over to anyone if captured.
The video is also mirrored here.
This video just further shows that any future reports of the Syrian government using chemical weapons should be treated with a great deal of skepticism.

The video (see here) starts with several scenes showing chemical containers with Tekkim labels (Tekkim is a Turkish chemicals company) and some lab equipment, while playing Jihadists chants in the background. A glass box then appears with two rabbits inside, with a poster on the wall behind it reading The Almighty Wind Brigade (Kateebat A Reeh Al Sarsar). A person wearing a lab mask then mixes chemicals in a beaker in the glass box, and we see some gas emitting from the beaker. About a minute later, the rabbits start to have random convulsions and then die. The person says: You saw what happened? This will be your fate, you infidel Alawites, I swear by ALLAH to make you die like these rabbits, one minute only after you inhale the gas.
Judging from the rabbits’ reaction, the gas must be a nerve agent. The number of containers, if not a bluff, indicates ability to produce a considerable amount of this gas. Deployment could be by means of a smoke generator placed in the target area, an explosion, possibly a suicide one, of a ”chemmed” car, or simply by using a humidifier.
This alarming video poses many serious questions: Who is this brigade? What will NATO’s reaction be if this was proven to be a rebel group? Is this going to be used a false alarm in a pretext to justify war against Syria? How did these chemicals reach this brigade? Is Tekkim or the Turkish Government going to comment on this? How is this related to the defeat of rebel fighters in the airport battle? Questions left unanswered at the moment, until we see more of what is likely to be a horrific chapter of the Syrian conflict.
To make matters worse, ABC News recently released a report with the headline “Report: Syria has loaded components of sarin gas into bombs.”
“A U.S. official confirmed to ABC News Wednesday night that Syria has loaded components of sarin gas into bombs on or near airfields,” ABC reports while noting that there has been no indication of “movement towards using the bombs.”
