Syria: Over 100 hurt in suspected gas attack
Nearly hundred people were injured in a suspected toxic gas attack on Saturday in Aleppo in Syria. According to the media sources, it is the first such assault in the city. According to the media sources, the militants fired shells containing gases that caused choking in three districts of the city.
The attack left many people suffering from breathing problems, eye inflammation and fainting. The Syrian government and its supporter Russia alleged that the insurgents were behind this attack, to which they denied their involvement in the attack. The rebels in-return accused the Syrian regime of trying to frame them.
The monitoring group said that the situation is under government’s control. The head of doctors, Zahal Batal, told the media that they don’t know what kind of gases were used in the attack, but they suspected chlorine and treated patients on this because of the symptoms.
