The UN may only sporadically the embattled enclave Duma. Exist there extremist islamic combat groups and working Syrian workers who are fierce opponents of the regime of Syrian president Assad. They suggested that the Syrian armed forces last Saturday with poison gas have thrown.

The embattled Duma is about to fall into the hands of Assad, partly because the main post, the Jaish al-Islam (Army of Islam), last weekend eventually agreed with their Russian-controlled retreat towards the North-Syria.
