West Silent over Real Chemical Attacks against Real Syrian Civilians

During the evening of the 24th November 2018, terrorist factions sponsored by the West carried out a chemical attack against civilians in three districts to the West of Aleppo City – Nil Street, Al Khalidiyyah and Jam’ayat al-Zahra.
