The Syrian government was quickly blamed by the West after the opposition-controlled Idlib region saw a chemical attack that reportedly killed dozens of civilians. However, a UK security analyst told RT the rebels were the only force that benefited from the incident.
There seems two possibilities, that either the chemical incident occurred because Syrian jets bombed a rebel ammunition depot containing toxic munitions or the rebels staged the entire incident.
There is no motive for Assad to use chemical weapons since the Government side is winning and to do so would invite outside intervention.
