France - SMART

On Monday, the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) published a report saying that the Syrian government carried out 183 chemical weapons attacks after the chemical massacre in August 2013 in Eastern Ghouta, Damascus.

The report, which was published on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the chemical massacre in Eastern Ghouta, documented statistics showing more than 216 chemical attacks  by the Syrian government since the first documented use on Dec. 23, 2012, until Aug. 21, 2018.

The first chemical attack by the Syrian goverment was reported in the Biadah district of Homs on Dec. 23, 2013, and the latest on April 7 in Douma.

The SNHR documented the names and details of the killing of at least 1,127 people, including 107 children and 201 women, and the injuring of 5,935 others, as a result of the Syrian government's bombing using intense missiles loaded with large quantities of sarin gas on Eastern Ghouta and the town of Ma'adamiyat al-Sham in Western Ghouta on the night of Aug. 21, 2013.

The SNHR added, "The Syrian regime aimed to shock the Syrian people with a genocide to force them into final surrender to the rule of the Assad family forever."

According to the report, chemical attacks by the Syrian government killed 1,397 civilians, including 185 children and 252 women, 57 armed opposition members and seven Syrian government members who were imprisoned by an opposition faction. More than 9,753 people were injured as well.

The SNHR explained that the Syrian government carried out its attacks in spite of the United Nations Security Council resolutions on chemical weapons. The SNHR documented 183 attacks after Resolution 2118, which was issued in September 2013, 114 attacks after Resolution 2209 from March 2015, and 53 attacks after Resolution 2253 in August 2015, which resulted in the Joint Investigation Mechanism.

A few days ago, activists told SMART, based on information from the people of Eastern Ghouta, that in April, the Syrian government transferred the bodies of the victims of the chemical massacre in the city of Douma from the park to an unknown place.

The United States, the United Kingdom, and France launched a joint military strike on the bases of the loyalist forces in April, in response to the chemical attack on Douma, which killed 85 people and suffocated 1,200.
