The General Command of the Syrian Army and Armed Forces announced that the terrorist groups deployed in the Eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo have targeted al Nairab neighborhood with several mortar shells containing chlorine.
Terror groups, including ISIS, have a history of carrying out chemical attacks on civilians and government forces both in Iraq and in Syria. The chemical weapons continue to be used in flagrant violation of international norms and laws, and at complete odds with basic human decency. These barbaric weapons had no place on the battlefield a hundred years ago, never mind today. Terrorists’ attacks using toxic chemicals show a brutal disregard for human life and the laws of war.
