Warning Shock Video - Syria Chemical Attack (70-150 Dead), US Blames Russia

Horrifying images and video reach us from Syria today where it is alleged that the government of Bashar Al-Assad used chemical weapons to quell the last of the resistance in the rebel-held town of Ghouta, targeting a hospital in Douma.

First reports indicate between 70-150 dead, mostly children.

Sana, the press agency of the Syrian regime, claimed: "Jaish al-Islam terrorists are in a state of collapse and their media outlets are making chemical attack fabrications in an exposed and failed attempt to obstruct advances by the Syrian Arab army."

Even though the Syrian regime was quick to dispute the claims of the ‘white helmets’ (an aid organisation comparable to the ‘red cross’), the US State Department says it believes the images and videos coming out of Eastern Ghouta overnight and confirms "a potentially high number of casualties".

The US State Department, via its spokeswoman Ms Heather Nauert, furthermore blamed Russia for its unwavering support of the regime and stated that: "the regime's history of using chemical weapons against its own people is not in dispute."

The chemicals used were allegedly a mixture of sarin and chlorine gases.
