Free Syrian Army Denies Rebel Use of Chemical Weapons

Not every faction resides beneath the FSA's heel


The rebel Free Syrian Army (FSA) has rejected claims by UN investigators that it is likely to have used chemical weapons.

Carla Del Ponte, a leading UN human rights investigator, said on Sunday that a UN commission of inquiry had gathered testimony from casualties of the civil war and medical staff indicating that rebel forces have used the nerve agent sarin.
