Sad! WHO Reveals 500 Were Poisoned In Syria

0

Up to 500 people were poisoned in the Syrian gas outrage that killed 43 people including children, the World Health Organisation has revealed.

WHO demanded ‘immediate’ access to the victims in rebel-held Douma as it revealed the total number of people who reported to hospital showing ‘signs and symptoms consistent with exposure to toxic chemicals’.

The atrocity, blamed on Syrian tyrant Bashar al-Assad’s forces, has sparked a global outcry with the US and its allies considering taking military action in response.

While the WHO statement did not confirm outright that chemical weapons attack had taken place, it said more than 70 people sheltering in basements have died with 43 of those deaths related to symptoms consistent with exposure to highly toxic chemicals.

We should all be outraged at these horrific reports and images from Douma,’ Peter Salama, WHO deputy director-general for emergency preparedness and response, said in a statement issued in Geneva.

‘WHO demands immediate unhindered access to the area to provide care to those affected, to assess the health impacts, and to deliver a comprehensive public health response,’ he added.

U.N. aid agencies do not have access to most of the enclave of eastern Ghouta, including Douma, where the alleged attack occurred. The Syrian government has denied responsibility.
