Turkey - SMART

On Monday, the Civil Defense documented 21 cases of suffocation, most of them children and women, as a result of the loyalist forces' shelling with chlorine gas on the city of Duma, 14 km east of Damascus.

The Civil Defense said in a statement seen by SMART that the bombing targeted residential neighborhoods in the city with shells loaded with gas. The Civil Defense added that its teams transferred the wounded to medical centers and evacuated families from the targeted location for their safety.

Local activists told SMART that the loyalist forces used nine Katyusha rockets to bomb the western district of Duma with chlorine gas. They noted that everyone affected by the gas returned to their homes after treatment.

On Jan. 13, loyalist forces targeted the cities of Duma and Harasta with chlorine gas, suffocating civilians.

This attack comes three days after France called on the United Nations Security Council to form an international commission to keep evidence of chemical attacks in Syria and impose sanctions on those responsible.

On Nov. 20, 2017, the United Nations announced the termination of the Joint Investigation Mechanism Commission on Chemical Attacks in Syria.
