US ‘closely follows’ alleged chemical attack in Douma

The United States will closely follow developments regarding the alleged chemical weapons attack targeting a Douma hospital, US Department of State spokesperson Heather Nauert said in a statement.

"Reports from a number of contacts and medical personnel on the ground indicate a potentially high number of casualties, including among families hiding in shelters. These reports, if confirmed, are horrifying and demand an immediate response by the international community," the statement reads.

On Saturday, the regime of President Bashar al-Assad accused opposition fighters of shelling residential parts of the capital city from Douma.
