MOSCOW, August 22 (Itar-Tass) - A total of 1,500 people have fallen victims of the chemical attack in Syria, member of the Kurdish National Council Mustafa Sino said.
“Mostly Kurds live in the eastern suburbs of Damascus where the incident occurred,” Sino told journalists on Thursday.
In order to estimate the number of victims “a special international commission is indispensable to reveal all circumstances of the tragedy”, the Kurdish official said.
“There is no alternative to the peace process. Kurds always call for resolving the conflict by political means and for convening the Geneva conference as soon as possible,” Sino said.
