A number of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) brigades and relief activists in Aleppo and its countryside have taken part in comprehensive training sessions on how to deal with a chemical weapons attack.
The sessions covered necessary procedures including emergency medical response and rescue. The sessions were held under the supervision of the local city council.
FSA Captain Abdul Salam Abdul Razzak, one of the trainers who defected from the Chemical Weapons unit controlling Syria's chemical arsenal, is working hard to teach the civilians and revolutionary activists how to deal with chemical attacks and how to treat burns caused by Napalm and phosphorus.
Activists reported that specialized FSA officers working on the chemical file had prepared hand-made masks that can reduce the effects of any chemical attack.
