Terrorists Launch Chemical Attack in Aleppo

Terrorists have launched a chemical attack on civilians and government forces in the Syrian city of Aleppo.

The Syrian army says terrorists, located in the eastern parts of the flashpoint city, fired shells containing chlorine, leaving scores of people injured. Terror groups, including Daesh, have a history of carrying out chemical attacks on civilians and government forces both in Iraq and in Syria. Earlier in the day, foreign-backed militants launched rocket attacks on several Syrian cities. At least five people were killed and three others were injured. The shelling also caused material damage in residential areas.
