The government forces targeted Hammouriya, Eastern Damascus with poisonous chlorine gas. The gas suffocated several civilians.

The Civil Defense reported on their Facebook page that government forces targeted residential neighborhoods with poisonous chlorine gas which suffocated civilians, most of them women and children.

Activists said that the number of injuries exceeded 10; whereas the Civil Defense added that they were not able to document the exact number of suffocations, due to intense bombing and all emergency roads being blocked.

On March 7, the Civil Defense documented 124 cases of suffocation among civilians. The case resulted from the government sanctioned poisonous chlorine gas attack on a residential neighborhood in Eastern Ghouta.

Bombing with chlorine gas took place in the residential neighborhoods of Douma on Jan. 13 and Jan. 22, 2018. The bombings injured civilians, mostly women and children.

Days earlier, France along with the United States threatened of a “firm response,” in case of evidence of chemical weapons use in Syria. The threat came two weeks after a similar statement by the U.S. National Security Advisor, stating “it is time to hold the Syrian government accountable for using chemical weapons.”

By the end of last November 2017, the U.N. announced the end of a Joint Investigative Mechanism mission of investigating chemical attacks in Syria, carried out by both the U.N. and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
