The country of Syria has yet again fallen prey to another ruthless chemical attack.


This time 58 people have reportedly been killed and 300 people are said to be wounded in a chemical attack in the Idlib province of Syria.

The unfortunate airstrikes had hit the city of Khan Sheikhoun located in the Idlib province of Syria at 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday, which were said to be giving off a 'poisonous gas' which is thought be nerve agent 'Sarin'. Within a gap of five minutes, three more strikes shook the above mentioned city's center but these attacks did not give off any gas. One of the Airstike also hit a hospital treating the victims of the gas attack.

US Republican Senator, John McCain called for US President Donald Trump -- who is yet to comment on what happened in Idlib -- to say "we're going to arm the Free Syrian Army, we're going to dedicate ourselves to the removal of Bashar Assad, we're going to have the Russians pay a price for their engagement."

According to a UN report published last year, since the war began in 2011, around 500,000 Syrians have been 
killed and there been around 7 gas chemical attacks up.

The opposition National Coalition accused the Bashar Assad's government and called on the UN Security Council to open an immediate investigation and hold the perpetrators accountable.

France, agreed with the opposition that a 'particularly serious chemical attack' has taken place and called for an emergency Security Council meeting.
