Nearly 100 Wounded in Suspected Chemical Attack in Syria’s Aleppo

ㅤ"’We can not know the kinds of gases, but we suspected chlorine and treated patients on this basis because of the symptoms,’ Zaher Batal, the head of the Aleppo Doctors Syndicate, told Reuters. He indicated that the assault marks the ‘first gas attack against civilians in the city since the [Syrian] conflict erupted more than seven years ago’ in March 2011.
ㅤ’The explosive [shells] contain toxic gases that led to choking among civilians,’ Aleppo city’s police chief Issam al-Shilli told the state-run Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), Reuters noted.
ㅤSANA reportedly claimed that ‘107 people were injured, including children, after militants hit three districts with projectiles containing gases that caused choking.’
ㅤThe U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), which uses ground sources to monitor the conflict, placed the estimated number of people who suffered from ‘suffocation’ after the attack at 94, ‘including tens of children and women.’"
