Opposition forces fighting against Syrian President Bashar Assad accused the Damascus regime and Hezbollah of using chemical weapons on Wednesday in a town outside of the capital, Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya news network reported.
According to the report, activists from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) said chemical weapons were used in the town of Zamalka. Last week in a call with reporters, the White House said evidence was clear that chemical weapons had been used against rebel forces in Syria.
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon confirmed he had received the American findings, but that they are viewed with skepticism, and perhaps with bias as well.
UN investigators have yet to gain access to sites where chemical attacks are suspected to have taken placeMichael Wilner contributed to this report.
