Heart Breaking Pic of Syrian dad cuddling his twins killed in ‘sarin gas attack’ is heartbreaking Know effects of nerve agent on human body
Surely humanity has died and it has been proved right in front of you.
This is a picture – enough to bring tears to anyone who sees it – of a devastated father
showing off his twin boy and girl who were killed in the alleged ‘sarin gas massacre’ in Khan Sheikhoun, in the rebel-held central province of Idlib, Syria.
Abdul Hamid Youssef, who is believed to be seriously ill himself, was pictured cradling the bodies of his dead toddler-aged twins, Ahmed and Aiya.
While the use of chemical weapons are not uncommon in Syria’s conflict, Sarin is a lethal nerve gas that can kill within minutes, even in very low doses if breathed in. Sarin is generally considered a weapon of mass destruction.

Sarin is a colourless and odourless agent that attacks the nervous system. When inhaled, it causes extreme and pain and uncontrollable muscle contractions that make it impossible to breath, leading to death by asphyxiation.
People may develop a runny nose, tightness in the chest and constriction of the pupils on being exposed to deadly sarin gas.
It is estimated that, in its purest form, sarin is 26 times deadlier than cyanide.
