Moments ago, Aleppo’s Kurdish district is believed to have been struck by artillery shells consisting of chemical gas that spread upon impact. The mortal shells were reportedly fired from rebel-held neighbouring districts upon Sheikh Maqsood, which is controlled by Kurdish YPG.

A video has surfaced from the Sheikh Maqsood district, allegedly showing how several men were suffering from breathing difficulties due to the chemical attack. Furthermore, the camera man said the entire area was under chemical attack. He said 9 civilians were killed and 29 injured due to the attack.

Meanwhile, tens of Kurdish fighters have reportedly been admitted to the local hospital following the chemical gas attack. The victims were reportedly suffering from itching skin and other symptoms of a chemical poisoning.

This comes as Islamist fighters used yellow phosphorous in a chemical attack last month on the very same Sheikh Maqsood neighborhood, according to YPG official.

“We hereby inform you that on March 8, 2016 at 15:00, shelling [was carried out] with rockets that carry chemical material, which we believe to be yellow phosphorous chemical weapon, on Sheikh Maqsood neighborhood by the Syrian armed opposition factions and battalions,” Redur Xelilm, YPG’s spokesman, said in a statement.

@leithfadel Wait for Western media to claim “Assad regime gased his own people”, even though it is absurd as Kurds are allies

Kurds are the great opportunists to say the least. It looks like America is now busy controlling the conflict in order to maintain balance of power between SAA Kurds and FSA aka Al Nusra and prepare ground for partitioning of Syria.

These Rebels don’t even manufacture the gas and even have the capacity to buy since they are not a country. These types of weapons are not sold on the public market.

Uncle Sam and terrorist Erdogan are culprits. They are supplying them to these lunatics

If they’re using chemical weapons then it’s a bit of a stretch to still refer to them as rebels. Terrorist is based on actions, and these actions are acts of terrorism.

Phosphorous is more an incendiary shit which was used before napalm, i.e. when the britons bombed Dresden, it is not classed as a chemical weapon but forbiden to use in civilian populated areas by international laws as it is toxic too so if they shell with phosphorous, this is a war crime but, in fact, phosphorous doesn’t produce the kind of yellow cloud on the video, this is more likely to be chlorine gas which is a chemical weapon. The death were not directly due to the chlorine but to explosives and shrapnels from the shells : basicly, chlorine is… Read more »
