A chemical agent attack was reported in the eastern suburbs of Hama in the Aqeerbat area today. At least 93 civilians have been killed and over 300 wounded. 

In a passionate plea Dr. Khaula Sawah, CEO of UOSSM USA said, "I just cannot describe the situation any more. 100 people, mostly children and women die instantly from exposure to an unknown chemical gas while almost 100,000 people are waiting for the moment of death, as many in the Aleppo area are calling out and recording their wills, believing this is their last message. We have been calling on the international community and all responsible parties to stop this massacre; yet genocide is occurring, people are being massacred and action has yet to be taken."

Dr. Sawah added, "We, as humanitarians will continue to work and provide medical relief to the best of our capacity, at least we know we are doing what we are supposed to do to save lives. The failure of the international community will be recorded in history, and I do hope they will take action before it is too late. I call on every human being with a beating heart to not accept what is going on and to act to the best of their ability, so that these messages, coming from a battered people who have lost all hope, won’t be their last.”
