More than 80 people suffer from serious breathing difficulties after another chemical attack on the city of Aleppo, Syria, said the volunteer rescue squad of the Syrian civil defense.
The British Syrian Observatory for human rights also reported the attack, saying that medical sources accused the military planes that carry bombs "loaded with poisonous gas."
On the video you can see how small children and other victims were transported to a makeshift hospital. The victims suffocated, the rescuers gave them oxygen masks. The video also shows how rescuers pulled the boy from the wreckage as ambulances with sirens circling around him. Another video on Media Center shows a man who shows no signs of life in the same hospital as the doctors try to pump oxygen into the lungs.
Such scenes are familiar in Aleppo, which is under siege from July 2015. The rebels cut the city's residents access to basic supplies of food, water, fuel and medicines, causing a humanitarian crisis.
The rebel-held city of Aleppo was taken by the forces of the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, with the support of Russian aviation. Several cases of gas attacks also took place there. The UN investigation in late August found that chemical weapons were used in Syria the air force. It was established two instances when regime forces used chlorine as a chemical weapon, and one where mustard gas was used.
In late August, the helicopter dropped two bombs in Aleppo during the funeral, killing at least 16 people, according to Syrian monitoring groups.
