A Suspected chemical attack in Douma, an area near Syrian city Damascus has killed nearly 70 people.

The White Helmets rescue operation team says most of the victims were women and children. Making a statement to Al Jazeera, head of the White Helmets Raed al-Saleh said, the death toll is expected to rise as many people were in critical condition.

Douma, the last rebel-held stronghold in Damascus is suspected to have been attacked with Chlorine gas and another unidentified stronger gas.

Syrian state news agency SANA reported government forces and its allies launched heavy air and ground operations in Douma since Friday (April 6). The Syrian government refuses the allegations of a chemical attack on their own people.

The president of the Syrian American Medical Association said medical support is insufficient as only a few physicians and medical staff are available in Douma to treat a larger number of casualties.

During 2013, Eastern Ghouta was attacked with Sarin gas causing death to over 1,000 Syrians.
