AL KUWAIT, August 21 (Itar-Tass) - The Al Jazeera, Al Arabiya and Sky TV channels, as well as other mass media outlets are responsible for Syria bloodshed because they support terrorists, a government source told the Syrian Arab News Agency /SANA/ on Wednesday.
"The information on using chemical weapons in the suburbs of the Syrian capital has nothing to do with the truth," the source said, noting that these reports were aimed at undermining the work by the UN experts who had arrived in Syria's province of Aleppo with a fact-finding mission.
Several television channels reported that dozens, if not hundreds of people were killed as a result of Syrian government troops' using rockets carrying poisonous chemicals. The alleged death toll ranged between 20 and 625. In all the cases, the reports were contributed by Syrian Opposition sources.
According to the mass media reports, the chemical weapons were used in the suburbs of Ain Terme, Dzhubare and Zamalka. The reports said the nerve gas used there was sarin.
There were many women and children among the injured. As evidence of the alleged chemical attack, activists placed videos on the internet showing injured and dead people.
