1,300 Terbunuh Diserang Gas Saraf oleh Regime Bashar al-Assad..

Apa yang perlu kita ketahui mengenai Gas Saraf atau Gas Sarin ini ialah meskipun penemuannya telah dilakukan oleh saintif-saintis Adolf Hitler, namun Adolf Hitler sendiri tidak tergamak untuk menggunakannya sebagai senjata kimia.. malangnya ianya telah digunakan oleh Regime Bashar al-Assad keatas rakyatnya..

Jika petang semalam negara dikejutkan dengan kemalangan bas yang telah mengorbankan 37 nyawa, hari ini Dunia dikejutkan dengan tragedi serangan gas saraf oleh Regime Bashar al-Assad yang mengorbankan lebih 1,000 nyawa.

Serangan oleh Regime itu dilaporkan telah dilakukan keatas sebuah bandar di Wilayah Ghouta di kejiranan Duma, Damsyik pada awal pagi ketika mangsa-mangsa sedang nyenyak tidur.

Aktivis Syria mendakwa serangan ini adalah yang terburuk sejak perang saudara tercetus dinegara itu dua tahun lalu.

Mereka juga mendakwa roket yang mengandungi gas sarin telah ditembak kearah bandar itu ketika waktu Subuh membunuh sekurang-kurangnya 1,300 rakyat Syria..

Jika dakwaan ini benar maka ianya adalah serangan menggunakan Gas Sarin terburuk dalam sejarah sejak penggunaannya oleh Saddam Hussein terhadap bangsa Kurdis di Karbala pada tahun 1988.

Here are the report..

Hundreds of children's bodies piled high after nerve gas attack near Damascus leaves up to 1,300 dead 

The world has looked on in horror as graphic images emerged showing the aftermath of a dawn poison gas attack in the suburbs of Damascus that wiped out 1,300 people as they lay sleeping in their beds.

Syrian activists accuse President Bashar al-Assad's forces of launching the nerve gas attack in what would be by far the worst reported use of poison gas in the two-year-old civil war.

Activists said rockets with chemical agents hit the Damascus suburbs of Ain Tarma, Zamalka and Jobar before dawn.

The accounts could not be verified independently and were denied by Syrian state television, which said they were disseminated deliberately to distract a team of United Nations chemical weapons experts that arrived three days ago.

Syria's Information Minister called the activists' claim a 'disillusioned and fabricated one whose objective is to deviate and mislead' the UN mission.

Al Jazeera’s Nisreen El-Shamayleh, reporting from neighbouring Jordan, said there were videos allegedly showing both children and adults in field hospitals, some of them suffocating, coughing and sweating.

'We have been receiving reports that the doctors in the field hospitals do not have the right medication to treat these cases and that they were treating people with vinegar and water,' she said.

Meanwhile, fighting in strife-hit country has fuelled a mass exodus of about 35,000 refugees into Iraq and risks exploding into a full-blown side conflict as Kurdish militias battled against al-Qaida-linked fighters in the northeast.

A U.N. team is in Syria investigating allegations that both rebels and army forces used poison gas in the past, one of the main disputes in international diplomacy over Syria.

The European Union condemned the suspected use of chemical weapons by Syrian government forces Wednesday as 'totally unacceptable', demanding an immediate investigation.

EU foreign affairs head Catherine Ashton said charges by Syria’s main opposition group that the chemical attack 'should be immediately and thoroughly investigated.'

A UN mission in Syria to probe previous allegations of chemical weapons use 'must be allowed full and unhindered access to all sites,' Ashton said, according to a spokesperson. 'The EU reiterates that any use of chemical weapons, by any side in Syria, would be totally unacceptable,' she said.

The authorities and all other parties in Syria 'need to provide all necessary support to and cooperation with the mission’s operations,' Ashton said as she gathered EU foreign ministers for a meeting on the crisis in Egypt.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, speaking in Brussels, said if proven the use of chemical weapons would 'not only be a massacre, but also an unprecedented atrocity'.

Fabius said however that the accusations from the Syrian opposition were 'not yet verified'. The White House says it's 'deeply concerned' about reports that chemical weapons were used by Syria's government against civilians.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest says the U.S. strongly condemns any use of chemical weapons and says the Obama administration is urgently working to gather information.

Earnest says the U.S. is asking the U.N. to investigate and wants a Security Council debate. Syria must allow the UN inspectors immediate access to investigate claims that chemical weapons were used in the attack, William Hague has demanded.

Many women and children were among the dead.
The Foreign Secretary said that uncorroborated reports of toxic agents being used would mark a 'shocking escalation' if they are verified and warned that those who use them 'should be in no doubt that we will work in every way we can to hold them to account'.

Mr Hague said: 'I am deeply concerned by reports that hundreds of people, including children, have been killed in air strikes and a chemical weapons attack on rebel-held areas near Damascus.'

He added before a meeting with his French counterpart: 'I hope this will wake up some who have supported the Assad regime to realise its murderous and barbaric nature.'

Russia, too, urged an 'objective' investigation but Assad's biggest foreign ally also heaped scepticism on his enemies' claims.

A foreign ministry spokesman in Moscow said the release of gas after UN inspectors arrived suggested that it was a rebel 'provocation' to discredit Syria's government.

'These reports are uncorroborated and we are urgently seeking more information. But it is clear that if they are verified, it would mark a shocking escalation in the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

'Those who order the use of chemical weapons, and those who use them, should be in no doubt that we will work in every way we can to hold them to account.

'I call on the Syrian government to allow immediate access to the area for the UN team currently investigating previous allegations of chemical weapons use.

The UK will be raising this incident at the UN Security Council.' Syria's neighbour Turkey said it was clear that chemical weapons had been used.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said in an interview broadcast on Turkey's Kanal 24 television:

'Use of chemical weapons in Syria is evident from the footage coming from there. 'We have called for an immediate investigation by the U.N. teams.'

A nurse at Douma Emergency Collection facility, Bayan Baker, said the death toll, as collated from medical centres in the suburbs east of Damascus, was 213.

'Many of the casualties are women and children. They arrived with their pupil dilated, cold limbs and foam in their mouths. The doctors say these are typical symptoms of nerve gas victims,' the nurse said.
