"The people of Syria are suffering; the rest of the world is watching", she concluded.

This week's strikes, which began on Monday, hit at least 10 areas in Eastern Ghouta, including Haza, Harasata, Douma, Hammouriyeh and Beit Sawa.

The UN has appealed for an immediate ceasefire in Syria, as the government intensified its bombardment of a besieged rebel enclave near Damascus.

The halt would "enable the delivery of humanitarian aid and services, evacuation of the critically sick and wounded, and alleviation of people's suffering", the statement said.

The German government called on Monday for a thorough investigation into reports Syria had used chemical weapons in both Idlib and Eastern Ghouta.

The Syria Civil Defence, whose rescue workers are commonly known as the White Helmets, earlier put the death toll at about 30.

That deal largely collapsed in December when the Syrian army along with Iran-backed militias and heavy Russian air power launched a major offensive to take territory in Idlib province and surrounding areas.

Turkey, which supported rebels trying to overthrow Assad, has worked with Assad's main worldwide backers Russian Federation and Iran in recent months to try to stem some of the bloodsheds in Syria's almost seven-year-old civil war.

Previously, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights had said that at least 16 people were killed. Cavusoglu did not say when they would visit.

Two barrels containing chemical gasses had been dropped from helicopters on Sunday night, Saad said.

Syrian government forces and allies, are waging an operation against Takfiri terrorists in Idlib province, which borders the Afrin region to the west. The SDF has destroyed several Turkish tanks plus crew members during the course of the renewed conflict and has claimed that they killed 7 Turkish soldiers as well as destroyed a tank over the weekend.
