Chlorine gas dropped in rebel-held territory of Idlib, Syria
2018-02-06
[RUDAW.NET] A Syrian civil defense search-and-rescue group said that three of its rescuers and six others were maimed by chlorine gas in western Syria.

The White Helmets reported on Sunday night that the incident took place in Saraqeb, an opposition-held town less than 16 kilometers from the front line with pro-Assad regime loyalists.

The rescue group, which has been accused of being anti-regime, posted videos of their response ‐ extinguishing fires at the central hospital in Maarrat al-Numan, hosing off people, and intubating the victims' airways.
