BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 A.M.) – Medics of Afrin General Hospital gave a press conference on Sunday, following an alleged toxic gas attack on the village of Aranda on February 16. The attack is believed to be part of the Turkish military’s ‘Olive Branch’ operation in northern Syria.

Director of Afrin Hospital Dr Khalil Sabri confirmed that six civilians were transported to the hospital with symptoms of poisoning, including shortness of breath and coughing.

After carrying out a clinical examination on the cases, Sabri explained that, “it was suspected that these injuries resulted from the inhalation of toxic gas”.

According to a member of the Health Authority in Afrin, Abdullah Yousef, “the results of the analysis showed that the soil samples contain a large percentage of chlorine.”

“Other soil samples from other areas of the village were analysed and no chlorine trace was observed,” he said.

“We call upon all institutions, influential forces and international actors, and all countries with democratic systems, to do whatever is necessary to put an end to this aggression and to convene an emergency session at the United Nations to stop this war,” said Yousef.
