One possibility would be Sheik Suleiman military base, one of the Assad regime's Chemical weapons test facilities, that was taken by Syrian rebels in December.
While the rebels claimed to have found no Chemical weapons in the facility I wouldn't really take their word as gold. If their intent was to frame the Assad regime they likely wouldn't alert anyone that they were in possession of WMDs.

It would be a serious problem if terrorists get a hold of whatever stockpiles they have.
As Bashar al-Assad’s hold on power steadily weakens, U.S. officials are increasingly worried that Syria’s weapons of mass destruction could fall into the hands of Islamist extremists, rogue generals or other uncontrollable factions.
Last week, fighters from a group that the Obama administration has branded a terrorist organization were among rebels who seized the Sheik Suleiman military base near Aleppo, where research on chemical weapons had been conducted. Rebels are also closing in on another base near Aleppo, known as Safirah, which has served as a major production center for such munitions, according to U.S. officials and analysts.
The opposition Free Syrian Army said it did not find any chemical weapons at the first installation. But the developments have fanned fears that even if Assad does not attack his own people with chemical weapons, he is on the verge of losing control of his formidable arsenal.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
