Zahir al-Sakit says he was told to use the weapons against rebels and civilians in Busra al-Harir, located around 90 Kilometers south of Damascus in Deraa province, southern Syria.

Al-Sakit, who was interviewed on Syria’s Al-Arabiya channel, claimed he instructed his soldiers to use a harmless liquid substance instead.

Al-Sakit defected to the rebel forces on March 15, and in a video he made for the occasion with his son – also an officer in the Syrian army – he did not refer to the incident.
