[UNSC] Chemical attack in Eastern Ghouta
Several independent news outlets, as well as Syrian accounts on Twitter, have confirmed a chemical attack in Eastern Ghouta, conducted by people in Syrian Army uniform. Riots have resumed throughout Damascus and the hashtag #DontTurnAway has been trending over this apparent 'repeat offence' by the Assad regime. With apparently clear evidence, the attack has drawn universal condemnation in the West and across political spectrums, and there are plans for major rallies in Western cities to demonstrate opposition to usage of chemical weapons.
Meanwhile, the South Sudanese President has been assassisinated at his private residence. Many South Sudanese civilians are protesting due to allegations that the government burnt down the ballots.
