Russian and Syrian airstrikes in rebel-held Idlib and eastern Ghouta killed 230 civilians over the past week, as the UN News Centre informs.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein said that a video was submitted to them, in which a possible use of “toxic agents” was filmed on Feb. 4 in the rebel-held town of Saraqeb, Idlib province.

“After seven years of paralysis in the (U.N.) Security Council, the situation in Syria is crying out to be referred to the International Criminal Court, as well as for a much more concerted effort by States to bring peace,” Zeid said in a statement.

Previously it as informed that nine people were hospitalized with problems with breathing after an attack on Saraqeb, in which a barrel bomb that probably contained chlorine was dropped.
