In Syria, rescuers said that at least 70 people were killed and hundreds other affected after toxic gas was dropped on Douma. It is the last rebel-held town in Eastern Ghouta and is under siege from government forces.

On Friday, pro-government forces and their allies launched a fierce air and ground offensive on the town.In a tweet, volunteer rescue force, The White Helmets said, the death toll is likely to rise. There has been no independent verification of the reports.

Syrian government has called the allegations of a chemical attack a fabrication. The US state department said, it is monitoring the reports, and that Russia – which is fighting alongside the Syrian government – should be held responsible if deadly chemicals had been used.

The pro-opposition Ghouta Media Center blamed a barrel bomb allegedly dropped by a helicopter which it said contained sarin, a toxic nerve agent.
