Regime forces launch chlorine gas attack in E. Ghouta – Middle East Monitor

Syrian regime warplanes carried out a chlorine gas attack in the Eastern Ghouta suburb of Damascus on Saturday, according to a Syrian paramedic group.

The attack targeted residential areas in the Duma district in Eastern Ghouta, the Syrian Civil Defense, know as White Helmets, said on Twitter.

Meanwhile, two people, including a child, were killed in an artillery shelling by regime forces in several districts in Eastern Ghouta, according to White Helmets.

Home to some 400,000 people, Eastern Ghouta has remained under a crippling siege by the Bashar Assad regime since late 2012.

Syria has only just begun to emerge from a devastating conflict that began in 2011 when the Assad regime cracked down on demonstrators with unexpected ferocity.
