A Turkish hospital near the border with Syria took measures upon a report that they would receive several Syrians injured by chemical weapons late yesterday, while no sign of chemical weapons was found on the patients, according to an official.

Nine Syrians admitted at a hospital in Hatay’s Reyhanl? district yesterday evening were checked for effects of chemical weapons after officials received information on the possible use of chemicals, a local official who wanted to remain anonymous told the Hürriyet Daily News today.

A seriously wounded man was sent to another hospital after initial treatment. An old woman who came from the scene had died of a heart attack. Another woman, nine months pregnant, came with symptoms of nausea fearing the use of chemical weapons. Also six others who accompanied the patients were checked for effects of chemical weapons by trained medical personnel. The official said that no sign of the use of chemical weapons had been detected on any of the nine Syrians.
National Medical Rescue Team (UMKE) members were working at the hospital and they took the patients from the Cilvegözü border gate with Syria to the hospital. The hospital refused all other patients until they completed their work on the Syrian patients.
