Aug 21, 2013 – At approximately 3:00am this morning in Damascus, a year to the day after Obama’s infamous “red line” speech warning #Assad about using #chemical_weapons, and as a specialized UN inspection team sleep in their hotels in Damascus, ostensibly there to investigate a CW attack 6 months ago, Assad launched his largest, most wide scale and most deadly attack using chemical weapons on the Damascus suburbs of #Zamallaka and #Ein_Turma in the Eastern #Ghouta area. The fallout from the attack was also felt in many of the surrounding districts. 1288 people are confirmed to have been killed with 40% of the dead being #children.
