New Chlorine Gas Attack on Jobar

Activists said that pro-regime forces launched a chlorine gas attack on the Jobar district of Damascus, while over 33 air raids pounded rural Damascus, especially on Jobar, Douma, Arbin, Kafar Batna Zamalka and Ain Tarma.

Around 50 people were injured in the chlorine gas attack on Jobar, eight of them were in critical condition and were rushed to Arbin field hospital.

Vice president Hisham Marwa stresses that “the UN Security Council must take all necessary measures that ensures the enforcement of the resolution No. 2209, which rules that chlorine gas is toxic and a chemical weapon, and that using it militarily represents a gross violation of international law and a flagrant violation of Resolution 2118.

Marwa points out that terms 6th and 7th of the UN Security Council resolution stresses that those individuals responsible for any use of chemicals as weapons, including chlorine or any other toxic chemical, must be held accountable. They also decide in the event of future non-compliance with resolution 2118 to impose measures under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter. (Source: Syrian Coalition + Agencies)
