Chemical Attack in Syria Kills Dozens

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and his allies, Russia and Iran, are being held responsible for a chemical attack that injured and killed dozens in Syria on Wednesday. This chemical attack signals a new low in the civil war that has ravaged Syria for over six years. Currently, the death toll for the attack is just under 70, although some sources say that it will reach over 100. Airplanes dropped chemicals around 7:00 a.m. Wednesday, just days after the Syrian government bombed a local hospital. This is yet another brazen attack on his own citizen by Assad, as well as a bold refusal of any and all cease-fire agreements.
