Storyline


No symptoms of chemical poisoning were diagnosed in the patients admitted into a hospital in the Syrian town of Douma where a suspected chemical attack was reported, said a medic of the hospital on Monday.

The site of the suspected chemical attack was said in a block close to the Square of the Martyrs in the suburban area of Douma.

Video clips of the suspected chemical attack showed that children foamed at their mouths in the basement of a severely damaged building.

The hospital where the victims of the suspected chemical attack were sent to is located not far away from the building shown in the video clips.

The hospital is in the basement of a building flanked by dirt piles, it is one of the major hospitals in the town of Douma.

Marwan Jaber, an intern medic at the hospital, recalled the chaotic situation when the victims of the suspected chemical attack were rushed in.

"Last Saturday we received some patients with respiration problems due to the dust, smoke and gravels in the basement they were hiding. We treated them after they were admitted," said Jaber.

However, a group of unidentified people came to the hospital and started to spread panic about a chemical attack although no symptoms of chemical poisoning were diagnosed in the patients, he added.

"Then some injured people and unidentified personnel stormed in and spreading message of chemical attack. People were terrified and a panic was triggered. We diagnosed them, there were no related symptoms," said Jaber.

Although the doctors were unable to stop the unidentified personnel from spreading the allegation, they still tried their best to restore order at the hospital, according to Jaber.

"We calmed everybody down, told them everything is all right. But some people started to spray the patients with water. We told them that everything is normal in fact, but the videos have gone viral, we didn’t know what happened, all the doctors said there was nothing abnormal at the time," said Jaber.

An inspection team sent by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has arrived in Damascus to get ready for an investigation into the incident.
