In case you forgot - the #Assad regime continues to use chemical munitions on civilian areas.

This morning, a chemical gas attack hit the besieged #Douma suburb of #Damascus - mostly women & children affected.

A similar attack hit Douma 9 days ago. #Syria
Civilian vehicles, packed with furniture & personal belongings, were targeted by regime strikes today, as civilians fled bombing in SE #Idlib.

This is #Assad’s “war on terrorism.” See for yourself. #Syria
#Russia & #Assad launched a huge escalation in bombing in #Idlib over the weekend - 150+ airstrikes reported yesterday alone.

Multiple hospitals destroyed and this Neo-natal unit evacuated.

Heartless, criminal violence.

#Assad also convicted x2 more chemical attacks over the weekend:

x1 [chlorine] in #Irbin, #Damascus
x1 [chlorine] in #Saraqeb, #Idlib

Multiple suffocation cases & continued regime chemical impunity.

Several newborn babies, who had to be removed from their incubators, had minor heart attacks during their evacuation in Marat al-Numan, #Idlib.

Shame on #Russia.
Amid heavy #Assad & #Russia bombing, multiple towns across #Idlib protested against #HTS over the weekend.

Including here, in #Binnish.

Idlib is not what most portray it as - look beyond simplistic headlines.

Chemical attacks, 100s of airstrikes & more hospitals destroyed.

My comments on #Russia & #Assad’s escalations over the weekend, for @MiddleEastInst’s Monday Briefing:…
THIS is what #Assad’s bombing does to people in besieged #Douma.

The remains of one recent victim.

Enough said.

#Assad's regime has continued its ferocious bombing of besieged E. #Ghouta today.

**56+ killed & 250+ wounded**

Multiple suburbs targeted simultaneously:

Kafr Batna
Absolutely unbelievable violence meted out by #Assad on besieged East #Ghouta yesterday - 80+ people killed.

That’s an intensity rarely seen in nearly 7yrs of conflict in #Syria.

= Where is the international outcry?

= Has this really become an acceptable normal?
Another horrendous day in East #Ghouta, as #Assad jets continue to ravage the besieged area with non-stop bombings.

Reports: 56+ killed, 180+ wounded today, so far.
Just unbelievable…

**1,450+** casualties in #EasternGhouta in x4 days of #Assad regime bombing.

- 237 dead
- 1,250+ wounded

NOTE: This is taking place *in* a “de-escalation zone."
The #Assad regime has re-deployed a large number of forces from NW #Syria to #Damascus, in reported preparation for a major offensive on besieged East #Ghouta.

#Russia has threatened to add its own ground forces, which would signal the start of "final solution."
"You think: ‘Where are the children, & how will they eat today?’ And then it’s, ‘What about tomorrow? Will there be one… Sometimes I watch them while they’re sleeping & just pray we can keep them alive.”
