Coordinates are wrong[edit]

The coordinates (which come from https://tools.wmflabs.org/geohack/geohack.php?pagename=Khan_Shaykhun&params=35_26_N_36_38_E_type:city(52972)_region:SY) are wrong. Please compare with http://wikimapia.org/#lang=fr&lat=35.442142&lon=36.649532&z=14&m=b and correct. Tradedia (talk) 12:02, 27 September 2013 (UTC)

April 2017 attack[edit]

The article states that the town "used chemical weapons". This is currently controversial. The US and UK governments appear to think that the al-Assad regime used chemical weapons in their attack, whereas the Kremlin appears to think that conventional weapons were used against a rebel chemical weapons facility, triggering a release of sarin gas. Presumably it will be relatively easy to confirm which story is true. samillar94 (talk) 10:03, 7 April 2017 (UTC)
