The reported use of chemical weapons in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta on August 21,leading to the deaths of at least 355 people, if not more, will certainly be a turning point in the Syrian conflict, which has already been a cause for moral horror.
More than 100,000 people have died in the conflict, at least half of them civilians. Forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad have indiscriminately killed the residents of neighborhoods and villages in their efforts to defeat the rebels.

Islamist groups forming part of the opposition have also allegedly perpetrated violence against non-Sunnis in the north of the country.
