>> When the UN Security Council demanded a 30-day ceasefire across Syria they didn't want to see anymore of this. Air strikes continue in the rebel held suburb of Damascus and doctors in Ghouta tell us the area has been hit by a chemical attack. This video from the Syrian American Medical Society claims to show victims being treated for chlorine gas exposure.
Struggling to breathe, one child died of suffocation. The Russian defense ministry which backs the Syrian government accused rebels of preparing to use toxic agents in eastern Ghouta. So they could later accuse Damascus of employing chemical weapons. The Syrian government consistently denies using such weapons, a denial disputed by the US.
A recent UN inquiry found the regime guilty of using chlorine gas in other attacks in Syria. Hospitals are struggling to cope, they keep getting hit and those still running don't have what they need, medical staff are exhausted. With no ceasefire in sight, aid agencies are standing by to get in and deliver life-saving aid to the people of Ghouta.
A place the head of the UN described Monday as hell on Earth.
