Sarin at­tack hits civil­ians

The Advertiser - - WORLD -

SYRIA has been ac­cused of again us­ing sarin and chlo­rine gas against its own peo­ple as it mounts a des­per­ate push for one of the fi­nal rebel en­claves.

Grue­some video posted on so­cial me­dia shows bod­ies, in­clud­ing chil­dren, ap­par­ently shrouded by poi­sonous fumes on the streets of East­ern Ghouta, near Da­m­as­cus.

Pres­i­dent Bashar al-As­sad’s troops re­port­edly used sarin grenades and chlo­rine mis­siles against 400,000 peo­ple trapped there. The chlo­rine at­tack was widely re­ported on Twit­ter and con­firmed by the Syr­ian Civil De­fence, known as the White Hel­mets.
