Russia is pointing the finger at Israel for airstrikes that on Monday reportedly killed 14 people, including Iranians, at a military airport near the city of Homs shortly after a suspected chemical attack that killed at least 40 people in a suburb of the capital city, Damascus, over the weekend.
Rami Abdurrahman, who heads the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, says most of the 14 killed were either Iranians or members of Iran-backed groups.
It was not immediately clear which country launched the strikes, but Russia and Syria blame Israel.
Survivors described the earlier chemical attack as something akin to a horror movie:babies foaming at the mouth, children choking and victims wailing as their eyes burned.
Those in the rebel-held Syrian enclave of Douma say they immediately knew their region had again been assaulted by chemical weapons — and something stronger than just chlorine.
