At least 90 civilians in addition to 7 from the civil defense working in ambulances have suffered from "suffocation" due to inhalation of unknown gases in Mouadamiyyeh in Damascus countryside as Assad terrorists continue escalating their campaign that targets tens of thousands of civilians trapped in the city.

Locals said that Assad terrorists blew up a tunnel today under residential neighborhoods on the eastern side of the city, accompanied by barrel bombing from helicopters.

The explosives contained undetermined gases, the substance of which has not been confirmed, but local activists suspect the use of chlorine.

The city has been bombarded with around 60 barrel bombs a day and 200 mortar shells and more than 35 rockets.
