Suspected toxic chemical of extend aerial bombardment of a town held by rebels in Syria Idlib province. At least 58 civilians killed including 11 children on chemical attack. The attack was reportedly carried out in Khan Shaykhun, a town in northwest Syria that sits about halfway between Homs and Aleppo on the country’s main north-south highway. Right after the post attack on Tuesday, a hospital was also bombarded while treating the victims. The Syrian Observatory’s report did not specify which allied government attack the town. President Trump said in a statement:

“Today’s chemical attack in Syria against innocent people, including women and children, is reprehensible and cannot be ignored by the civilized world. These heinous actions by the Bashar al-Assad regime are a consequence of the past administration’s weakness and irresolution. President Obama said in 2012 that he would establish a ‘red line’ against the use of chemical weapons and then did nothing. The United States stands with our allies across the globe to condemn this intolerable attack.”
