BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 A.M.) – Over 100 people have now been confirmed dead or wounded as a result of the chlorine gas attack launched by the rebels on Aleppo city last night, Al-Mayadeen reported.

Aleppo’s Health Directorate Chief Ziad Haj Taha said many lives have been saved by the Syrian servicemen, who promptly delivered victims to hospitals after their areas were targeted by the rebel forces..

“So far, no one was discharged from hospital. Doctors continue treating those affected,” he said.

“The condition of two teenagers, who were earlier admitted to intensive care, has stabilized,” he added.

Last night, the rebel forces in rural Aleppo fired several chlorine shells towards the densely populated neighborhoods on Nile Street and Al-Khalidiyeh.

According to a military source in Aleppo city, the attack was carried out from the western outskirts of the provincial capital.
