The Syrian government says it has discovered chemical weapons being used by the rebels in a tunnel in Jobar, a suburb of Damascus.

State television reported that some soldiers needed medical treatment for suffocation after making the discovery.

Jobar is the focus on counter-allegations, with the rebels accusing the army of killing up to 1,000 people in Jobar using nerve gas

Without specifying who is using chemical weapons, Iranian President Hassan Rohani, for the first time, acknowledged they have been used and is asking the international community to step in.
