This is not the first or second or even tenth time that chemical attacks target people in Syria and suffocate them like insects.
The life of thousands of Syrians may be of no value for those who are indifferent towards what’s happening; however, the entire world is in danger due to these precedents which have become familiar and acceptable due to keeping silent and not holding criminals accountable. Silence over what the three regimes are doing in Syria will make all of the region’s cities an open arena for murder using chemical gases as wars expand and given the world’s cold reaction to using them.
Mass murder against Syrian civilians has been ongoing for four years now. The first time we heard of it was on March 19, 2013 in Aleppo’s suburbs. It was followed by another chemical attack on April 29 in Saraqeb and by another on August 21 in Ghouta. Three days later, Jobar was attacked and a day later, on August 25, a chemical attack also targeted Sahnaya. All these consecutive attacks were carried out in the same year. No one was held accountable although these attacks were many. The Syrian regime continued to deny these attacks were chemical in nature despite the mounting evidence and it kept saying it was a mere media charade and an exaggeration of events. The Syrian opposition, in cooperation with the UN, had to transfer a body of someone who was killed by Sarin gas to examine it and run tests thus proving that a prohibited nerve agent was used.
Three criminal regimes
Like the Syrian regime, Iran does not mind sacrificing its citizens and does not hesitate to carry out mass murder against those it is hostile towards.Abdulrahman al-Rashed
