Two Europeans who were allegedly abducted and held hostage for several months in Syria claim they overheard a conversation between their captors
suggesting the Syrian rebels were behind the deadly chemical attack in the Ghouta region, east of Damascus, on the morning of August, 21, 2013
In a number of interviews to European news outlets, the former hostages - Belgian teacher Pierre Piccinin and Italian journalist Domenico Quiric -
said they overheard an English-language Skype conversation between their captors and other men which suggested it was rebel forces, not the
government, that used chemical weapons on Syria’s civilian population
It's my understanding that both hostages claim that they overheard a conversation between what they believed to be rebels, but Quiric was quick to
point out that they never were an eye witness to anything and didn't know anything specifically about the people they were eavesdropping on.
