SEO considers the alleged use of chemical weapons by Assad regime as war crime that necessitates urgent intervention by international community to protect civilians. SEO urges the World Health Organization to, immediately, implement a preparedness plan.
SEO believes that this escalation by Assad regime reflects both: Assad’s frantic attempts to quell the rebels, and the failure of the UN and the international community to stop Assad’s attacks against civilians using conventional weapons, which grow up to the use of chemical weapons.
