At least 100 people have been killed and hundreds wounded in a suspected chemical attack on a rebel-held town in north-western Syria, a monitoring group says.

Airstrikes hit the city of Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib province at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, giving off a “poisonous gas,” according to Anas al-Diab, an activist with the Aleppo Media Center.
The casualties reportedly came as a result of asphyxiation caused by exposure to an unknown gas or chemical agent.

Some medics treating the wounded were later struck by rubble when an aircraft reportedly bombed a hospital.

A hospital in Syria’s northern Idlib province was hit soon after the area was bombarded with a suspected chemical agent.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said there were 11 children among the dead.

Mohammed Rasoul, the head of a Syrian ambulance service, told the BBC that first responders found people choking in the streets.

“Our team is still there, moving patients from one place to another because of overcrowded hospitals,” he said. “I am speaking to my team and they are doing fine, but the situation over there is very bad and most of those who are suffering are children.”

The Syrian Observatory (SOHR) quoted medics as saying that they had been treating people with symptoms including fainting, vomiting and foaming at the mouth.

An AFP news agency journalist saw a young girl, a woman and two elderly people dead at a hospital, all with foam still visible around their mouths.

The SOHR put the death toll at 58, including 11 children, but Mr Rasoul reported that 67 people had been killed and that 300 were injured.

The pro-opposition Step news agency meanwhile said 100 had died.

The EMC and LCC said it was believed to be the nerve agent Sarin, which is highly toxic and considered 20 times as deadly as cyanide.

Sarin inhibits the action of an enzyme, which deactivates signals that cause human nerve cells to fire. This blockage pushes nerves into a continual “on” state. The heart and other muscles – including those involved in breathing – spasm.

Sufficient exposure can lead to death via asphyxiation within minutes.

Sarin is almost impossible to detect because it is a clear, colorless and tasteless liquid that has no odor in its purest form.
