It is not the first time that the Syrian government is accused of using poison gas. When in april 2018 in the Syrian town of Douma poison gas was used, did the united states, the United Kingdom and France with a joint bombing raid on Syrian legerdoelwitten.
The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) came to the conclusion that there is in Douma poison gas was used and that it is very likely that in Syria, only government forces chemical weapons use.
