The rules of war have been broken by both sides of the conflict. According to a UN report http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-38301629“Syrian pro-government forces in eastern Aleppo have been killing people, including women and children, on the spot in their homes and on the street”. There is no evidence that the opposition has chemical weapons, but there is evidence that Assad has used chemical weapons against his own people.http://politi.co/2bPeu0L. The findings of the Joint Investigative Mechanism of the use of chemical waepons in Syria point to the Syrian Government and Da’esh http://www.un.org/press/en/2016/dc3651.doc.htm
