Assad regime carried out 215 chemical attacks in Syria

Assad regime carried out 215 chemical attacks in Syria

The Bashar al-Assad regime, which claimed to have destroyed its stock of chemical weapons, continues unfettered attacks on Syrian civilians. Since the beginning of the civil war, the regime forces have carried out 215 chemical attacks.
If I had a harbor in the land
of dreams and mirrors, if I had a ship,
if I had the remains
of a city, if I had a city
in the land of children and weeping,
I would have written all this down for the wound’s sake,
a song like a spear
that penetrates trees, stone, and sky,
soft like water
unbridled, startling like conquest.

- Adonis - 
excerpt from The Wound

Syrian poet, exiled in France.
