seriously, what are the chances this happens at this moment in time, really odd
Everything just keeps getting smaller. A New Zealand company called Rakon has developed what they say is the world’s smallest GPS chip. Tinier than your pinkie nail, it could be integrated into pretty much anything someone might want to track. Imagine all the pen thieves in the world finally being held accountable for their petty larceny.
Some observers have described Tuesday's incident as a gas attack. Abu Baraa, a rebel figure from a group allied with Ahrar al-Sham, said a doctor who examined the bodies said there was little visible sign of external injuries.
The doctor saw bodies with frothing at the mouth and fluid coming from the eyes and noses, Abu Baraa said, adding the group had been meeting in a heavily fortified underground bunker.
"This was a highly sophisticated attack in a location that was very secure," he said. Photos posted on social media claiming to show the victims of the attack displayed bodies that did not appear to have significant external injuries.
Other reports suggested the victims had died from smoke inhalation. It was not possible to independently verify any of the reports or pictures or the cause of the deaths.
The Hague-based Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said in a statement on Wednesday it had found "compelling evidence" that chlorine gas was used "systematically and repeatedly" as a weapon in northern Syria this year.
President Bashar al-Assad agreed to hand over his chemical weapons stocks for destruction as part of a deal that averted threatened U.S. military strikes, but the continued attacks have led to accusations he had not fully declared his arsenal.

Perhaps these guys were working on some sort of weapon/bomb and it literally blew up in their faces?

What a coincidence!
Well with them gaining more and more control of Syria it will be easier for the US to invade unobstructed now. Less people the US government has to argue with. . .
