Dr Abdel Aziz Bareeh, who works in Saraqeb,said,”We know it’s chlorine because we were hit by it in the past and we are familiar with its odour and symptoms… We have 28 confirmed cases mostly women and children.”

Friday night’s supposed attack in Saraqeb, in Idlib province, which is controlled by a group of opposition groups, follows reports of a similar helicopter barrage using barrel bombs on Wednesday.It also comes a day after an international chemical-weapons watchdog said it was ready to investigate a series of recent chemical attacks.

Dr Zaher Sahloul, of the Syrian American Medical Society, described the scene as “very traumatic”.Sahloul stated that,”Doctors and nurses were struggling to treat them. They all had respiratory symptoms, they had coughs, they had wheezing, some of them had fluid in their lungs,”

Rights group Amnesty International said the supposed chlorine gas attack in Sarmin was evidence of new war crimes by the Syrian government, and should be referred to the International Criminal Court “as a matter of urgency”.

Philip Luther, Middle East and North Africa programme director at Amnesty International concluded that,”These horrific attacks that resulted in civilians, including small children, suffering excruciating deaths, are yet more evidence that the Syrian government forces are committing war crimes with impunity.”
