Syria: Severe battles for Duma

Syria is said to have used poison gas in attacks on City Duma in Ostghuta. This is what rescue workers and aid agencies report. The Syrian government is denies accusations. Duma is last rebel-held city in region, Islamist rebel group Army al-Islam bombards from re repeatedly capital city. After ten days of ceasefire, Syria and Russia have again been flying heavy air raids on city since Saturday.

The Syrian aid organisation White Helmets reports that a residential area has been attacked with chlorine gas. After that, several residents would have suffered from breathlessness. Doctors from Syrian American Medical Society have also treated several injured with symptoms of chlorine-poisoning. The Syrian Human Rights Observatory reports at least eleven people with shortness of breath or choking seizures. These include five children.
