JERUSALEM, April 23 (Reuters) - Syrian government forces have used chemical weapons in fighting in Syria, the Israeli military's top intelligence analyst was quoted as saying on Tuesday.

"To the best of our understanding, the regime used lethal chemical weapons in a number of incidents - most probably Sarin gas," Brigadier-General Itai Brun told a security conference in Tel Aviv, according to the website of the Haaretz newspaper.
