Abdul Hamid Youssef Syrian father clutches dead twins after Syria gas attack in as political leaders point fingers and how to stop Syria’s civil war.
In a photo that is already going viral and displaying the horrors and ravages of the ongoing conflict in Syria, father Abdul Hamid Youssef has been photographed clutching the bodies of his two dead infant children moments after Tuesday’s Syria gas attack.
Notes the photo posted by Dr. Shajul Islam: ‘Abdul Hamid Youssef lost 20 martyrs for his family at the chemical massacre including his wife and his twin children Ahmed and Aiya.’
The father looks on forlorn as he sits on the ground holding his murdered son and daughter, as helpless and victimized as the wife and two children he has just lost along with other family members.
In total up to 72 individuals lost their lives in Tuesday’s attack.
The image according to the metro was taken in the northern town of Khan Sheikhoun soon after the gas attack believed to be at the hands of Syria’s president and dictator, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad despite government denials and accusations that the attack was at the hands of rebels.
In the aftermath of the attack, Bashar al-Assad ally, Russia also blamed the rebels for the atrocity while Washington maintained it was caused by sarin nerve gas dropped by a Syrian government aircraft.
Reacting to Syrian gas attack, President Donald Trump said in a statement: ‘Yesterday’s chemical attack, a chemical attack so horrific in Syria against innocent people including women, small children, and even beautiful little babies — their deaths was an affront to humanity. These heinous actions by the Assad regime cannot be tolerated’.
Which is to wonder will the US do an about turn on its previously held position of direct intervention? And to whose favor does that play out to and who else is pulling strings in the background seldom reported in western media is proxy states battle spoils to gas and oil reserves and autonomy power in the fractured region?

Dr Shajul Islam, a doctor trained in the UK, currently providing treatment in norther Syria, has been ongoing tweeting about some of the horrendous things he’s witnessed following the reported sarin gas attack.
Told one tweet: ‘Do you still doubt that Sarin is being used on us? Non-reactive pinpoint pupils! We have samples. Will anyone care!? Who will stop it?’
‘Do u still doubt that Sarin is being used on us? Non-reactive pinpoint pupils! We have samples. Will anyone care!? Who will stop it?’ he tweeted along with footage of the victims’ eyes.
The physician also tweeted a picture of a crying baby surrounded by medical workers in a hospital.
‘Patients are still flooding in,’ he said. ‘This child’s been rushed in w/o any family. They’re probably dead.’
He also posted a video purportedly showing adults and children lying unresponsive in beds.
‘I will show you the evidence again and again, but you know what? The world doesn’t care and no-one is doing anything,’ he said. ‘We urge you to put pressure on your government — put pressure on anyone — to help us.’
Which is to wonder how will the Syria and the rebels along with the US and Russia and its adjoining proxy allies come to put an end to the Syrian civil war as victims, including Syrian father, Abdul Hamid Youssef ask how and why it claimed those most precious to him….
