UN Probes Reports Of Fresh Chemical Attacks On Rebel-Held Syrian Towns

Free Syrian Army fighters in Idlib province in Syria

Regime bombardment killed almost 30 people in a rebel enclave near Damascus on Monday, as Syria's seven-year conflict left civilians paying a heavy price.

The Syrian government denies using chemical weapons.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 10 towns in the Eastern Ghouta region outside Damascus were bombed on Tuesday.

"Twenty-nine civilians were killed and dozens were wounded", said the war monitor's head, Rami Abdel Rahman. It said one of its workers was killed by an airstrike while attempting a rescue in the area.

Although less deadly, regime attacks involving suspected chlorine-filled munitions on Ghouta have also been on the up in recent weeks.

The Central Weather Bureau said the quake's epicenter was 18.3km northeast of Hualien County Hall, a depth of 10km. There are now 80 New Zealanders registered on SafeTravel as being in Taiwan.

Mohammad Ghaleb Tannari, a doctor in a nearby town, said his hospital had treated 11 people. In the past two years, a joint inquiry by the United Nations and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has found the Syrian government used the nerve agent sarin and has also several times used chlorine as a weapon.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan ramped up his verbal assault on the US role in Syria on Tuesday, saying USA forces should leave Manbij, a Syrian city held by YPG-allied forces with support from a US -led anti-Islamic State coalition.

In the end no statement was adopted.

"We do not have any disagreements with Russian Federation".

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, with the help of Russian air power and Iran-backed militias, has said he wants to take back control off all of Syria.

Washington, which past year launched cruise missiles on a regime airfield in retaliation for a nerve agent attack in Khan Sheikhun that killed scores of people, has threatened more military action. In total, more than 335 people have been killed.

And in nearby Zamalka, another devastated Eastern Ghouta town, a man could be seen carrying the body of his child, wrapped in a blood-soaked white sheet, through the streets.

"Minute after minute, the number of casualties rises", a rescuer from the White Helmets said in a video from eastern Ghouta posted on the group's Facebook page.

Another person was killed in rocket fire on the regime-held part of Harasta district.

Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, a powerful militant-dominated alliance in Syria, said it shot down the Russian plane in retaliation for a ferocious bombing campaign by Moscow's warplanes over Idlib.
