The seventh anniversary of the sarin gas massacre in Eastern Ghouta

Today we commemorate the seventh anniversary of the sarin gas massacre in Eastern Ghouta. The chemical weapons attack killed more than 1,400 people, many of whom were children.

As we look back on this day seven years later, we remember the innocent victims and grieving families.

This anniversary should serve as a reminder that the conflict continues. Civilians in northwest Syria continue to face displacement, suffering, and death every day. It’s an appropriate moment to contemplate the broader global response to the ongoing Syrian crisis.
