Rebel groups wound 50 people in gas attack on regime-controlled Aleppo November 24

TIMEFRAME expected from 11/24/2018, 12:00 AM until 11/26/2018, 11:59 PM (Asia/Damascus). COUNTRY/REGION Aleppo

Event

According to Syrian state media, Syrian rebel groups wounded 50 people in a gas attack on regime-controlled Aleppo on Saturday, November 24. Local health officials have claimed that symptoms of victims, including breathing problems and blurred vision, suggest that chlorine gas was deployed. Rebel and opposition groups have denied that they launched the gas attack and blamed the Syrian government for attempting to undermine a previously negotiated ceasefire agreement. Similar attacks are possible in the coming weeks.

Context

To date, the Syrian conflict involves many parties, including the Syrian government, the Russian government, the Iranian government, the Turkish government, a US-led coalition, and numerous armed groups on the ground (including the Islamic State) with competing goals.

Advice

Due to extremely poor security conditions, Western governments generally advise against all travel to Syria, with some banning travel to the country. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to any travel to Syria.
