Suspected chemical attack, kills 57 in Syria
At least 57 people have been reportedly killed and several hundred injured in a suspected chemical attack in Syria town on Wednesday. According to the medical relief group, the area was bombarded with a suspected chemical agent. Among the deceased eleven were children.
The U.N. Security Council is to convene for an emergency meeting over the suspected deadly chemical attack. President Trump responded with this statement: “Today’s chemical attack in Syria against innocent people, including women and children, is reprehensible and cannot be ignored by the civilised world. These heinous actions by the Bashar al-Assad regime are a consequence of the past administration’s weakness and irresolution. The United States stands with our allies across the globe to condemn this intolerable attack.”
According to the BBC report, Mohammed Rasoul, the head of a Syrian ambulance service told that first responders found people choking in the streets. “Our team is still there, moving patients from one place to another because of overcrowded hospitals,” he said. “I am speaking to my team and they are doing fine, but the situation over there is very bad and most of those who are suffering are children.”
