The World Health Organization (WHO) said that it would send medical supplies to the Syrian city of Aleppo tomorrow, but could not verify if chemical weapons or some other toxin had been used there.
"At this stage we cannot confirm the use of chemical weapons, nor what agent, if any, was used," WHO spokesman Tarik Jasarevic told Reuters in Geneva. "Tomorrow (Wednesday) morning WHO will send medical supplies (for trauma cases) to Aleppo from its prepositioned stocks in Tartous."
