Stating that there are different sizes missiles and also the deaths caused by these missiles, as well as serious burns and chemical reactions. In response to a question if Assad's opponents have used such weapons, Erdogan said, "There is no way I can believe in this now. First of all, how are they going to obtain this? Who would give such weapons to them? But if it does exist, then we are against it.
