...Israel will have war with seven western nations and Russia. The United States will abandon us, as they did Vietnam and Lebanon. The war will begin with a gas attack; every event in the Land will be tied to gas. There will be a lot of it. This is the sign.
3,600 Syrians Treated For 'Neurotoxic Symptoms'
Around 3,600 Syrians have been treated for "neurotoxic symptoms", and 355 of them have died, says the humanitarian group Doctors Without Borders (MSF).
The victims flooded into three Syrian hospitals on the day that hundreds of people were allegedly killed in a "chemical massacre" outside the capital Damascus.
They all arrived within less than three hours of each other, said MSF director of operations Bart Janssens.
He said the pattern of events and reported symptoms "strongly indicate mass exposure to neurotoxic agent".
"Medical staff working in these facilities provided detailed information to MSF doctors regarding large numbers of patients arriving with symptoms including convulsions, excess saliva, pinpoint pupils, blurred vision and respiratory distress," he said.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 54 children were among the dead.
Western leaders have accused President Bashar al Assad's forces of carrying out the alleged chemical attack.
The Syrian government has strongly denied the claims, and says it has evidence the attack was carried out by rebel forces.
