Armed rebels released a second film on the Internet which shows them testing a poisonous chemical agent on an animal in Western Syria, media reports said
The footage shows terrorists testing a chemical substance on a rabbit in the coastal city of Latakia, the Lebanese television al-Manar reported.
In related development, the armed rebels used chemical weapons in their attacks against the Syrian army in Darya district of Reef (outskirts of) Damascus earlier today.
"The terrorists have already thrown three cube-shaped plastic bags towards the (Syrian) army's forces that killed seven forces due to the gases emerging from the bags," a commander of the Syrian Presidential Guard told the Iran-based Arab-language Al-Alam news channel.
The commander noted that a yellow button is installed on the bags and by pushing that a yellow gas came out and those who inhaled it died after nearly one hour.
Since several weeks ago, different media had reported about the presence of chemical weapons in Syria and the possibility of its use by armed rebels.
Terrorists from NATO sponsored Al Qaeda FSA 'Screaming Wind Chemical Battalion' carries out their second experiment on rabbits, this time by forcing a rabbit to drink a contaminated water mixed with a lethal mixture, they called it Sunnah 2, their first experiment was also on rabbits but by contaminating the air, and warn they'll contaminate Latakkia's main fresh drinking water Alssin spring with their lethal mixture.
On a closer look at the terrorist, wait.. Isn't that a NATO issued uniform he's wearing?!
Foreign-backed militants have repeatedly threatened to use chemical weapons against the army and pro-government civilians in recent days.
They have also threatened to contaminate Syria's drinking water supply in a bid to kill all Alawite Shias and the supporters of President Bashar al-Assad.

The Russians don't want Assad in exile in Russia because whoever takes him in (if anyone will) will become a prime target for terrorist attacks. They also need to protect their interests in Syria, regardless of what happens to Assad.
In the beginning there isn't much interesting or audible conversation going on...
As they start their stroll about the recaptured alleyways, they explain that a large terrorist group is completely surrounded nearby and have been trying to break out in small groups periodically without much success.
At the 16:00 with the burned bodies, they explain that these are foreign fighters that the terrorists burned and tried to bury to cover up their identities.
They go on to show the heavily shot up intersection where the terrorists had one of their bases set up, then showing the building across - from which the militia assaulted the intersection.
The journalist then asks the local militia commander: "What is the situation in this area - who is in control of the area? When were the terrorists cleared out? Casualties?" etc etc Commander replies that the SAA is in control, mainly shabeeha (the national volunteer militia) - and these streets were only cleared yesterday. He claims they had only one casualty on their side in the fighting.
He again explains that the bodies of the terrorists were burned before they could capture those streets and that it is quite common for the terrorists to burn the bodies of mercenaries to hide their ID.
He then says that within the next 10 days or so they will move to capture the remaining streets, but for now are only conducting "special ops". The terrorists morale is shattered - he explains that they are taking pain-killers and the few that were taken alive couldn't feel a thing.
The sounds of battle audible in the background throughout that part of the video are explained as skirmishes with the terrorists trying to break out from being surrounded.
At 35:00 they show a few bags of the pain-killers mentioned before, the Russian journalists reply that "it's just like in Chechnya". The logos on the bags appear to be of Al-Jazeera they note.
The fat kid explains that the terrorists put a car bomb next to the school, and that the army and militia defused it thus restoring school service and that they are bringing them food, as well as having restored electricity/water.
The old guy with the warm hat says the terrorists were looting and burning apartments and the militia chased them out.
They then visit a militia checkpoint, they mainly talk about where the enemy snipers are shooting from. The journalist's translator narrates as the refugees flee the area that the militia is helping them and all that.
Describing the United States as the main cause of insecurity in Syria, Naqavi said, “Washington is not qualified to pass comments on democracy because the Americans are an obstacle to the realization of democracy in Syria.”
“The Americans have failed in Syria and their insistence on spreading insecurity in Syria will certainly lead to the US’s diplomatic isolation.”
Russia, along with Iran, provides Bashar al-Assad's regime with weapons and ammunition, and supports it politically, therefore the citizens of these countries present legitimate targets for militants in Syria.
The opposition coalition rejected Maleh's remarks in a move welcomed by Human Rights Group.
But after the Guardian revealed that Russian military advisers are manning some of Syria's more sophisticated air defences, Maleh, head of the Syrian opposition legal committee, stood by his remarks.
He told the Guardian:
What I said that there are a large number of Russian consultants and experts who are helping the Assad regime even though they might be civilians.
Those are legitimate direct target for the Free Syrian Army according to the Geneva Convention because they are aiding the regime against the Syrian people will.
Russia has contingency plans for evacuating more than 5,000 Russian in Syria.
Russian foreign ministry’s spokesman Alexander Lukashevich has pledged help to Russians wishing to evacuate from Syria and said evacuation routes have already been mapped out.
“As you know, there is a road map for every country that describes how to act in case of an emergency,” Mr. Lukashevich said. “Of course, we’ve drawn up a plan on how to help our citizens in Syria, which will be put in place if they need any assistance, such as an emergency evacuation,” he added.
I never thought I would be taking sides but I honestly hope Assad can stop these madmen somehow.
