Chemical Attacks in Idlib

Its not 'dozens' its in the Hundreds - 5 Chemical Attacks in the area strategically targeting large numbers of civilians. 

On the 4th April 2017, the town of Khan Sheikhun in the City of Idlib was attacked by Sarin gas (a gas that is internationally prohibited). This barbaric attach took the life of over 100 people, most of which are children. The death was caused by suffocation, there is also reports to approximately 400 injured. 

A massive number of residents of Khan Sheikhun have been seen leaving the town to nearby areas towards Northern Idlib.

These displaced families and individuals are in urgent need of Shelter, food and sanitation and the Human Care Syria team along with other NGO's are seeing how to best handle this chaotic situation. 

Later on in the afternoon another attack targeted the Civil Defence building where people were attempting to help and rescue those who have been exposed to the gas attack.

The closest Medical Centre in the area was also hit by a direct attack and now the centre is out of service putting the lives of the thousands of people under risk due to the lack of medical services available to them in the area.

As you have seen from the video's going viral people are trying to control the gas by spraying those who have been exposed to the gas with heavy amounts of water in attempts to wash it off.  

Our Project Manager Mr Mohammad Gadireha told BBC news last night: 'there is no protective gear, no clothing, no medication in Syria and no medication available'. So treatment from this gas is currently non-existence and as the world has seen over the past 24 hours. Those who come into contact with the gas suffer a brutal death.
