 The chemical attack which took place on 4 April 2017 on a town in violence-hit Syria- Khan Sheikhoun, which killed many civilians.

The attack was an instance of the deadliest use of chemical weapons in the Syrian civil war since the Ghouta chemical attack in 2013.

Russia vetoed the US-backed resolution accusing the United States of calling the vote to dishonor Russia.

The veto decision was condemned by the United States, Britain, and other countries, which saw it as an attempt to shield those responsible for answering to the most controversial human rights abuses in Syria’s six-year war history.
