The US is calling on Russia to end its support for Syrian President Bashar Assad after dozens of people were killed in an alleged chemical attack on Saturday, The Hill reported.

State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said in a statement that US officials are closely following the “disturbing reports … regarding another alleged chemical weapons attack, this time targeting a hospital in Douma, Syria.”

“These reports, if confirmed, are horrifying and demand an immediate response by the international community,” Nauert said.

Damascus has denied responsibility for the attack.
