Syrian American Medical Society says patients suffering exposure to chemical compounds treated in Eastern Ghouta Sixteen patients including six children were treated in a SAMS-supported hospital in Eastern Ghouta, Syria, quot;suffering from symptoms indicative to exposure to chemical compoundsquot; according to a tweet from the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) late Sunday. The Syrian opposition-run Rural Damascus Health Directorate (RDHD) on Monday said several people were admitted to medical facilities in Eastern Ghouta on Sunday showing signs that, quot;are consistent with exposure to toxic chlorine gasquot;, according to a statement. The RDHD statement describes patients quot;having symptoms including dyspnea, intensive irritation of the mucus membranes, irritation of the eyes, and dizzinessquot; and added, quot;the smell of people in the area, ambulance drivers, and victims all had the clear and known smell of chlorine gas.quot; CNN is unable to independently verify claims chlorine was used as a weapon in Eastern Ghouta on Sunday. Both sides of the Syrian conflict have in the past accused one another of the use of chlorine as a weapon. The Syrian government has repeatedly denied claims that it has used chlorine as a weapon on civilians.
