Syria’s six-year civil war raised to its peak when Syrian civilians became victims of a chemical bombing. The New York Times is labelling the incident as the “worst chemical attack in years” for Syrian citizens. There were as many as 100 casualties, including children among those.

“Who will control Syria?”

Western leaders pointed fingers at Syria’s president Bashar al-Assad for the attack, but the United States accused Russia for attempting to cover up the incident.

In response, U.S. President Donald Trump fired a missile strike on the Syrian government, killing six. The U.S. was criticized by Russia and Syria, both stating that Trump’s decision was “an act of aggression” and “disgraceful.”
