Chemical attack kills dozens in Syria..Assad blamed

A chemical weapons attack in an opposition-held town in northern Syria has killed dozens of people, leaving residents gasping for breath and convulsing in the streets and overcrowded hospitals.

The Trump administration has blamed the Syrian government for the attack, one of the deadliest in years, and said Syria’s patrons, Russia and Iran, bore “great moral responsibility” for the deaths.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 58 people died, including 11 children, in the early morning attack in the town of Khan Sheikhoun, which witnesses said was carried out by Sukhoi jets operated by the Russian and Syrian governments.

Videos from the scene showed volunteer medics using fire hoses to wash the chemicals from victims’ bodies. Haunting images of lifeless children piled in heaps reflected the magnitude of the attack, which was reminiscent of a 2013 chemical assault that left hundreds dead and was the worst in the country’s ruinous six-year civil war.

Tuesday’s attack drew swift condemnation from world leaders, including President Donald Trump, who denounced it as a “heinous” act that “cannot be ignored by the civilised world”. The UN Security Council scheduled an emergency meeting for Wednesday in response to the strike, which came on the eve of a major international donors’ conference in Brussels on the future of Syria and the region.

In a statement, Trump also blamed former President Barack Obama for “weakness” in failing to respond aggressively after the 2013 attack.

“These heinous actions by the Bashar al-Assad regime are a consequence of the past administration’s weakness and irresolution,” Trump said.

“President Obama said in 2012 that he would establish a ‘red line’ against the use of chemical weapons and then did nothing. The United States stands with our allies across the globe to condemn this intolerable attack.”

Photos and video emerging from Khan Sheikhoun, located south of the provincial capital of Idlib, showed the limp bodies of children and adults. Some were struggling to breathe; others appeared to be foaming at the mouth.

The activist-run Assi Press published video of paramedics carrying victims, stripped down to their underwear and many appearing unresponsive, from the scene in pickup trucks.

It was not immediately clear if all those killed died from suffocation or were struck by other airstrikes that occurred in the area around the same time.

It was the third claim of a chemical attack in just over a week in Syria. The previous two were reported in Hama province, in an area not far from Khan Sheikhoun.

The Syrian Air Force has destroyed a warehouse in Idlib province, where ammunition dump containing chemical weapons was being produced by militants before being delivered to Iraq, the Russian Defense Ministry spokesman has said.

The strike, which was launched midday Tuesday, targeted a major rebel ammunition depot east of the town of Khan Sheikhoun, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov said in a statement.

The warehouse was used to both produce and store shells containing toxic gas, Konashenkov said. The shells were delivered to Iraq and repeatedly used there, he added, pointing out that both Iraq and international organizations have confirmed the use of such weapons by militants.

  4. is Trump dumb? or just pretending?

  5. I heard a woman caller on Hannity yesterday on the radio, talk at length only about how she cares for “National Security”. Nothing else means anything, she kept saying, except “National Security”. Without that there is nothing, over and over again. Hannity kept saying ‘go on’ and ‘exactly’. She ranted for awhile. The warmongers are beating the drums getting the “political right” up in a frenzy for bloody battle. (Of course the political left are warmongers also, they just do not like to admit it. We saw how many bombs Obama’s administration dropped.)

    …seems that “they” are willingly destroying Europe…as xxx says, they are or stupid or evil…

  11. great info- about military&other movements in the days prior to “the gas attack”:

    US Syrian Invasion Planned Months In Advance
    President Trump claims that Syria has crossed the final red-line when just two days earlier Trump vowed no regime change in Syria. Well that’s odd Trump was moving his military equipment within striking distance of Damascus the same day he was claiming there would be no regime change in Syria.

  13. Reblogged this on World Peace Forum.

  14. The war on syria has begun..

    Trumpet is no longer in charge. No Siree.

    • Well, the commander-in-chief strikes again. Trump is responsible for yet another war front by the U.S. government that can be added to the long list.

      • sadly predicted here..its the same cycles..rinse and repeat..

        • i think we mentioned many times – as per the usual/protocol – he wasn’t in charged from Day#1.. we wished he did & was annointed by unseen (?) forces or divined in some way/shape/form.. but we never really believe in fairy tales.

          Yes God does use ‘un-holy’ people to do his work sometimes.. but is this one of them or occasion? i dunno. Is the biblical verse of Damascus being reduced to a ruinous heap about to be fulfilled??

          • syria is part of the “biblical” prophetic doomsday scenarios ..

            • wonder who/what is Ben-Hadad..

              • These are old historic prophecies. You can read about Ben-Hadad in Kings. He was the Damascus (Syrian) king at that time (ca. eighth century BC). Amos and Isaiah were prophets who, amongst other things, had the word from God concerning the destruction of Israel (northern kingdom) and other wicked nations at that time.

                At the time of Amos and Isaiah, Israel had already been divided into two kingdoms, which occurred at the death of King Solomon). The northern kingdom (Israel), and the southern kingdom (Judah/Jerusalem). That is why when reading those historical times there is reference to Israel and Judah. They are separate kingdoms, each having their own king who battle each other, ally with each other, and doing the same with the other kingdoms surrounding them. Israel was the wicked of the two. Judah, though possessing wicked kings at times, which brought the wrath of God, Judah was considered by God to be His covenant people until they were full of sin and God rightly judged their wickedness by the hand of Babylon.

                The destruction that Amos and Isaiah spoke of the LORD came by the hand of the Assyrians (capitol: Nineveh; think of Jonah who went to Nineveh many decades before the city grew into the Assyrian Empire). The captivity of the Syrians (and the northern kingdom of Israel, etc.) was by the hand of the Assyrians. Babylon would conqueror the Assyrians, and eventually, the southern kingdom (Judah) with Jerusalem some centuries later.

                Because of how the Assyrians conquered the people, which is they would put them into captivity in another land and bring foreigners into the captured land, then the Samaritans came into being. Not every single person of the northern kingdom was taken away into captivity by the Assyrians, and so when the Assyrians had brought in foreigners from other lands into the northern kingdom, the Israelites (northern kingdom) intermarried and adopted the gods of the foreign nationalities that the Assyrians brought into their conquered land. By way of intermarriage and adoption of various foreign ways and retaining their own idolatry, the people became distinct and known as the Samaritans. They had already become distinct by the time of Nehemiah and Ezra (post-Babylonian exile), and the historic event of Jesus and the Samaritan woman can be read (John 4).

                [all that I wrote above is found in the Bible, mainly Kings, no extra-Biblical material]

              • There is NO civil war in Syria! UN Peace Council Drops The Truth On Syria And Propaganda Media

                • correct..

                • What a great video.
                  Concern: The UN Peace envoy is right. In this growing time of fake news, a sober voice of truth will cause gravitation. People will move toward what is or appears to be true. When chaos and fake news grows, and when a voice of truth steps in, like this UN Peace envoy, or simply the UN, then who will people put their trust in and make legitimate? The UN. I do not think that is a coincidence. Yet, how could I dismiss what the UN envoy said. They are speaking the truth. Not that I want the UN to grow in legitimacy and power – far from it.

  15. the last 2 lines are classic..this is fake news shit..

    Sarin gas likely used in Syria attack that provoked US response: watchdog

    Israel said it believed Syria retained up to three tonnes of the weapons.

    Israel, along with the US and much of the international community, has accused Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces of carrying out the attack, which killed at least 90 people, including dozens of children.

    A senior Israeli military official said Israeli intelligence believes Syrian military commanders ordered the attack, with Mr Assad’s knowledge.

    Briefing reporters, he said Israel estimates Mr Assad still has “between one and three tons” of chemical weapons.

    The assessment was confirmed by two other Israeli defence officials.

    All of the officials spoke on condition of anonymity under military briefing rules.
