Muayad al-Dirani was at a medical center in the Syrian town of Douma the night of April 7, when patients started flowing in.Rasha Edlibi, a survivor of the attack, said the gas left her unable to breathe and made her eyes well up with tears.The medics were already working at full capacity after weeks of army artillery and airstrikes, said Dirani, 20, a photographer who was working to document the victims of attacks during the conflict.The suspected gas attack took place during the final days of a government offensive on Douma, the last town to hold out in the Eastern Ghouta enclave that the army has recaptured since February.Douma is located near Damascus where three towns were hit in a nerve gas attack that killed hundreds of people in 2013 .
