September 2, 2013—Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is aware that incorrect, manipulated information about MSF and Syria is circulating on the internet and social media. 

We reiterate what we stated in our press release on August 24: 

  • MSF does not have the capacity to identify the cause of the neurotoxic symptoms of patients reported by three clinics supplied by  MSF in Damascus governorate.
  • MSF was not and is not directly present at these clinics. 
  • MSF does not possess the capacity or ability to determine or assign responsibility for the event that caused these reported symptoms to occur. 

Any statement or story that asserts any of these things is false. 

We ask you to please continue checking MSF's official websites to find accurate, correct information on MSF communications and activities in Syria. 

Thank you.
