Aleppo – SMART

On Tuesday, activists and internally displaced persons (IDPs) from Eastern Ghouta organized a demonstration in the city of Atarib, 30 kilometers west of Aleppo, Northern Syria, on the fifth anniversary of the chemical massacre by the Syrian government forces in Eastern Ghouta.

On Aug. 21, 2013, the Syrian government forces launched a chemical attack on the cities and towns of Eastern Ghouta, killing around 1,500 civilians.

About 25 people participated in the demonstration, and they raised banners saying, "Sue the chemical Bashar and his allies," "The fifth anniversary of the chemical massacre by al-Assad on Eastern Ghouta," and "From Eastern Ghouta we salute the people of Idlib, which is the shelter for rebels."

Muhamad Shakerdi, an activist, said that the demonstration was held to remind the international community that "He who committed the massacre hid the evidence and he is free in Damascus."

An IDP from Ghouta confirmed that despite their displacement, the IDPs will continue to send the message that "The crime is not forgetten yet (...) we demand to sue the one responsible for this massacre."

On Monday, the Syrian Network for Human Rights said that the Syrian government launched 183 chemical attacks in Syria after the attack on Eastern Ghouta.

The Syrian government forces displaced tens of thousands of civilians and fighters from the cities and towns of Eastern Ghouta to Northern Syria in March and April 2018, after a military campaign on the area that killed and injured thousands of civilians.
