Syria: 70 killed, including children, in worst chemical attack in years
The death toll from the suspected gas attack Tuesday in Syria’s Idlib province has reached 70, according to the Aleppo Media Center. That includes at least 10 children.
The attack is suspected to be one of the deadliest chemical attacks in Syria in years, multiple activist groups say. The Aleppo Media Center says 45 bodies have been identified so far.
Airstrikes hit the rebel-held city of Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib province on Tuesday morning, giving off a “poisonous gas,” according to Anas al-Diab, an activist with the Aleppo Media Center (AMC).
The attack, which has been blamed on the Syrian regime by activists and condemned by international leaders, has reportedly left hundreds injured.
