‘An affront to humanity’

Dear Editor,

The horrific, deadly and chilling scenes blaring across televisions and other media from news organizations worldwide on the atrocities perpetrated against a rebel area in Syria transcend all barriers and borders.

The unleashing of a deadly chemical gas attack on innocent civilians including babies and children is not only outrageous and heinous, but also an “affront to humanity” in the words of President Trump.  This ghastly act must be condemned by all nations and peoples the world over. This is not the first time that a chemical attack has taken place in Syria.  In August 2013 a similar attack took place in Ghouta.

Yours faithfully,

Shamshun Mohamed
