VERY GRAPHIC IMAGES
Syria has been in a civil war for the past three years. We have posted several galleries highlighting this conflict, but this morning news reached us that things have escalated severely.
Government forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad have been accused of using nerve gas during an attack on women and children. If true this is a crime beyond comprehension and it’s about time the rest of the world acted.
The images you are about to see are shocking and definitely not totally cool, but we feel that they need to be seen to be believed.
