The defense Ministry of Russia accused Syrian airstrike in the murder of civilians with chemical weapons in the province Sit in Idlib. At least 70 people, including children, were killed after chemical weapons were used.
According to a statement published Wednesday on the Facebook page of the Ministry, the strike struck "workshops producing chemical munitions" on the Eastern outskirts of the city of Khan shaykhun. The activists said that the Syrian regime dropped a chemical bomb and is responsible for the murder, with the result that the UN had replaced the scheduled session of the Security Council on Wednesday morning emergency meeting. The military of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad denied using chemical weapons and accused rebels in the massacre.
Killed at least 70 people - including 10 children - and many are still getting sick. The attack began when the EU opened a two-day conference on the future of Syria and the region. Britain and France circulated a resolution calling on the UN security Council to condemn the attack. US Senator John McCain called on President Donald trump to send a signal to Assad that the attack will not go unpunished. Eyewitnesses said that the attack was a disaster unlike anything they have seen before. "The symptoms developed rapidly within a few minutes, including redness of the eyes, foaming mouth, reduced eyes, severe dyspnea (shortness of breath) or shortness of breath and suffocation," said the doctor CNN. The symptoms progressed so rapidly that death occurred within 10 minutes.
Earlier, Syrian state media reported that the explosion occurred at the plant for the production of toxic substances in the village of Idlib.
