The war first began in the early 2011, when Syrian protesters were using nonviolence to free political prisoners and government officials charged in the crowd shooting the protesters. The peaceful rebels resulted in several brutal massacres led by President Bashar al- Assad and his companions. Soon, the Syrian government used a military forces against President Bashar al- Assad’s regime to oppress the reformers. By June 2012, the International Committee declared that Syria is certainly in a civil war. As the years passed, the security forces violated human rights to the largest extent when Assad used chemical weapons in public areas.
Why do countries use chemical weapons on innocent people? I understand there might be a conflict between two sides, but why are the civilians he ones who get affected the most? There is an ongoing debate in Syria regarding who used chemical weapons and who is responsible for the attack.

In late 2013 U.S. intelligence Service reporters claimed that chemical weapons have been used in Syria.

The police shot and killed a 4 protesters.

In a United Nations Security Council meet Russia and China vetoed against a western drafted draft that would allow for a military intervention in Syria if continued military action against protestors. A certain number of cases indicating the use of chemical weapons have been reported. Both the sides have accused each other for the attacks.
