Airstrike kills 10 in area of suspected gas attack in Syria

Why UN's Excuses For Its Aid Fiasco In Syria Fail To Convince – OpEd US says talks with Russia on Syria conflict still progressing

Military jets belonging to controversial Syrian President Bashar Assad dropped chemical munitions onto a civilian population in Aleppo early Tuesday, witnesses and news reports said.

More than 100 people were hospitalized after barrel bombs containing chlorine were dropped in the city of Aleppo.

"The cessation of hostilities agreement brought a welcome respite for civilians that lasted all too briefly", the commission said in its 12th report, covering the period from January 10 to July 20 this year.

Last month, there were at least two reports of suspected chlorine attacks in Aleppo also, while the Syrian government also blamed the opposition for using the gas.

"The systematic use of chemical weapons in Syria with impunity for perpetrators has become the 'new normal, '" the Syrian American Medial Society said in a statement Tuesday.

"As a result, almost 100 people, including women and children, have been admitted to Sukkeri's Sahra Hospital", he said.

The Syrian government, however, has supposedly used chlorine gas in attacks before.

The Syrian government has consistently denied using chemical weapons.

The Syrian Civil Defense accused the government of another chlorine attack in August. But now that the Syrian government has succeeded in surrounding Aleppo entirely, it is unclear whether the forces loyal to Assad would be prepared to accept terms that would impede their ability to continue to attack the rebels, even if the United States and Russian Federation were to agree.

Separate clips showed men wearing oxygen masks being attended to in a hospital.

There has been another reported chemical weapon attack in Syria.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks daily developments in the Syrian war, said more than 70 people in Sukkari were left choking and needed treatment after the dropping of barrel bombs by Syrian government helicopters.

However, the deal did not remove stocks of chlorine, a dual-use chemical that has industrial applications but can also be used as a crude chemical weapon, delivered by improvised barrel bomb.

A United Nations investigation in late August found that chemical weapons had been used in Syria, both by the national air force and ISIS militants. Although the Syrian government has repeatedly denied using chemical weapons in the five-year war, a United Nations and Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons investigation found that government forces were responsible for at least two gas attacks in 2014 and 2015 involving chlorine.

The year-long U.N. and OPCW inquiry - unanimously authorized by the U.N. Security Council - focused on nine attacks in seven areas of Syria.
