On Saturday, several civilians were suffocated after the loyalist forces targeted the perimeters of Duma and Harasta in Eastern Gouta, Damascus Countryside using the Chlorine gas.

Activists said that the loyalist forces bombed by three missiles (Elephant) with Chlorine gas the respective area between Duma and Harasta (10 kilometers east of Damascus) near the Damascus – Aleppo highway. The bombing with Chlorine gas suffocated seven civilians from Duma.   

The activists added that the smell of Chlorine gas spread out in a residential district in both towns, pointing out that the loyalist forces also bombed Duma with 12 ground-to-ground missiles, without mentioning if these rockets carried toxic gas or not.

The local council of the city of Duma condemned targeting civilians with chlorine gas in the eastern Ghouta, appealing to international organizations to assume their responsibilities in protecting them from what it called "the machine of killing" including the ones that internationally prohibited, according to a statement posted on his official account on Facebook.

The Health Directorate of Damascus and its countryside called for an immediate international investigation into the usage of toxic gas, which is internationally prohibited, in Eastern Gouta that resulted in the suffocation of several civilians.    

The loyalist forces used the chemical weapons several times, most supreme was on Aug. 21, 2013, in Eastern Gouta, which killed hundreds of civilians.Also, the city of Khan Shikhun in Idlib was also bombed with toxic gas last April. Russia has used the Veto many times and blocked U.N. Security Council condemnation of Syrian government attack.

This bombing coincided with battles near the Vehicle Management base in Harasta, where Ahrah Al-Sham Islamist Movement advanced during the Bianahum Zalamu battle, which was launched late last year.
