"I went to one of the houses and found an infant who was a year and a half old. He was jumping like a bird, struggling to breathe. I held him immediately and ran to the car but he died. I swear to God the number of the dead infants and children are more than the numbers of elders.”

The Khan Sheikhoun gas attack took place around 6:30 a.m. on 4 April 2017, before most children and parents had left for school or work. Witnesses reported smelling a strange odor about ten minutes after a rocket attack and airstrike, followed by visible symptoms of poisoning.
