Medical aid was provided to 73 civilians, including four children, after militants’ attack with poison-filled shells in the Syrian city of Aleppo, doctor of the emergency department of a hospital in Aleppo, Shervan Sheho, told journalists on Sunday.
“According to updated data, 73 civilians, including four children, were given medical aid after Aleppo shelling. All hospitalized people have difficulty breathing and their eyes were watering. In medicine, this is called a gas allergy,” Sheho said.
One of the eyewitnesses of the shelling, Ahmet Mohammed, told reporters that the victims did not immediately feel the first signs of poisoning.
“My brother was at home, he heard that shells were falling, but he thought that nothing terrible had happened. However, after two hours his condition worsened, it became difficult for him to breathe, the ambulance took him to a hospital,” he said.
