Many people suffered from suffocation on Sunday after a gas, believed to be chlorine, was dropped in barrel bombs by Assad terrorists on the neighborhood of Qaber al-Engleze in Aleppo, according to a hospital and a local rescue group.

Last weak, a confidential report by both the United Nations and the global chemical weapons watchdog has said that Assad regime carried out at least two toxic gas attacks against civilians in Syria.

According to the joint report seen by the Reuters news agency, a year-long probe by the UN and Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) - authorized by the UN Security Council - focused on nine attacks in seven areas of Syria, where a separate OPCW fact-finding investigation had already determined that chemical weapons were likely to have been used.

The inquiry found there was sufficient information to conclude that Assad regime’s helicopters dropped devices that then released toxic substances in Talmenes on April 21, 2014 and Sarmin on March 16, 2015, both in Idlib governorate. Both cases involved the use of chlorine.
