War Crimes in Syria - Chlorine Gas Attack in Aleppo

On September 6, 2016, Syrian Government forces dropped barrel bombs on a rebel controlled suburb of Aleppo, Syria. 

The bombs were dropped by mercenaries employed by the Syrian Dictator, Bashar Al-Assad.

Some of these bombs were actually canisters of chlorine gas. 

It has been reported that one 13 year old girl died. 

About 80 people suffered from chlorine exposure. About 40 of them were children who were rushed to medical facilities crying and gasping for air. 

The use of gas or chemicals in any war or conflict is deemed by the United Nations to be a war crime. The Al-Assad government denies the use of chemical weapons despite the fact that the chlorine canisters are visible in the street. 

Pray, without ceasing, unto God, for an end to War. 

Pray for the children of Syria.

God help them. Amen.
