Sources in the Syrian opposition are accusing Hezbollah of using chemical weapons on the battlefield, Israel Radio reported.

Rebels fighting Hezbollah and the Syrian military loyal to President Bashar Assad said Thursday that they were on the receiving end of artillery bombing whose shells contained poison gas during fighting in the town of Zamalka, just east of the capital Damascus.

The head of a UN team that is investigating claims of chemical weapons use in Syria will meet with Syrian doctors in Turkey to hear eyewitness accounts from the war.
