#Syria  - We have a couple of threads on the Ein Tarma "chemical attack" that occurred around 1amGMT, so going to merge them here and add what we know via +James Miller and +Iain Martin.  I stress that the details of this attack are as yet unverified, and the videos are highly distressing.

There have been allegations of a chemical attack in Ein Tarma (location: 33.513955,36.347015), in the eastern Ghouta region of #Damascus   , with dozens of people reported killed in the attack. High estimates of around 635 via activists (unconfirmed): https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=722016467825492&set=a.221856221174855.74557.217848338242310&type=1

Videos showing the aftermath of the attack have emerged from several local and usually reliable LCC sources from surrounding districts just a few kilometres from Ein Tarma, including:

We also have video from a source previously unfamiliar to Storyful: https://www.youtube.com/user/MajlesRifDimashq/videos

Via +James Miller - "[East Ghouta] is an area with strong opposition leanings, and is a major supply route to the front lines in the fighting in east Damascus. Assad's forces in both Mt Qassioun and in the Mezzeh airport have this area very zeroed in for rocket (typically Grads) and artillery strikes...In the video showing the baby (below), a doctor and I have been reviewing the footage. She thinks that this looks like the child is in cholinergic crisis http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cholinergic_crisis [possible sarin symptom]"

Any help on this appreciated, particularly more information on the symptoms seen in the dozens of videos above. A Syrian subreddit is collecting more videos here: http://www.reddit.com/r/syriancivilwar/comments/1kry33/live_thread_stream_of_videos_coming_out_of/
