Sup Travellers?! This is probably the saddest story that I have written about for this entire year. According to reports as much as 1300 Syrians died in their sleep after rockets filled with chemical agents hit the suburbs of Ain Tarma, Zamalka and Jobar just before dawn. The reason for the strike isn't certain yet but many believe that President Bashar al-Assad’s forces are to blame. Read on.




According to Daily Mail UK, on Wednesday, right before Dawn rockets filled with chemical agents hit the suburbs of Ain Tarma, Zamalka and Jobar killing as much as 1300 people. The pictures of the aftermath are very graphic and i'm not going to show all here. Now, the government officials are denying that they had anything to do with it, however there is much doubt. The EU has condemned the use of chemical weapons by Syrian government forces and is demanding an immediate investigation of the incident.

Al Jazeera’s Nisreen El-Shamayleh has been reporting from Jordan, and stated: “We have been receiving reports that the doctors in the field hospitals do not have the right medication to treat these cases and that they were treating people with vinegar and water."

Sarin gas is colorless, tasteless and odorless. It’s considered to be one of the most toxic chemical warfare agents and causes paralysis, loss of consciousness, and respiratory failure. If untreated upon inhalation death can occur within 10 minutes, and only a fraction of an ounce on the skin is enough to be fatal. The White House has expressed deep concern over the use of chemical weapons against civilians and is working urgently to gather accurate information on the attack.

The story is still unfolding and there are a lot of things that hasn't been made public yet. But we can't deny that this is tragic. Imagine that. 1300 people all died in one night after a chemical attack. That is ridiculous. These kind of attacks can happen anywhere in the world and at anytime. If this entire story is completely true then this would be the worst use of chemical weapons since 1998 which was by Saddam Hussain. Is there a new terrorists brewing or was this just civil warfare? Was this the beginning of something or just a one time thing? I don't know. I'll update you as the story progresses. My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
