Activists and medics in Syria believe that poison gas was used on civilians amid a resumed offensive by the country’s government after a truce collapsed.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, at least 80 people were killed in the attack on Saturday.

About 40 people died from suffocation, the organization said.

A truce between government forces and rebel fighters lasted for just 10 days before an argument erupted over the evacuation of opposition fighters.

Douma is the last rebel stronghold in the suburb of Damascus known as eastern Ghouta.

Syria has previously denied using chemical weapons during its violent civil war and claims it eliminated its chemical arsenal.
