Permenant Mission of Estonia to the UN

Statement by Ambassador S. Jürgenson at UN Security Council VTC meeting on Syria Chemical Weapons
Last month, the 21st of August marked the seventh anniversary of chemical weapons attack that took place in Damascus suburb of Ghouta. The attack remains one of the most horrendous, large-scale atrocities conducted during the Syrian conflict by the Assad regime against its own people. The Syrian Network for Human Rights has documented that during the Goutha attacks at least 1144 individuals suffocated to death. 1119 of them were civilians, including 99 children and 194 women.
