Even if he had made a few years as second-in-command of the EPIGN unit ( GIGN with paratrooper flavour), he was an officer in the regular gendarmerie.

To anyone interested in chemical warfare there’s a chemical warfare expert on twitter by the name of Dan Kaszeta. He seems very polite and is more than willing to answer questions.
his company website has his bio on it so here it is http://strongpointsecurity.co.uk/about/staff-bio/

The chemical weapon appears to be a crude container containing chlorine, dropped via helicopter. Kind of like the crude barrel bombs used by Assadist forces.
