It was such a heartbreaking moment for a father, Abdel Hameed al-Youssef sat in a car, cradling his 9-month-old twins wrapped in white.

Their faces were sapped of life, victims of a chemical attack in Syria on Tuesday that took the lives at least 72 civilians, including at least 20 children, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

"I was right beside them. I took them outside with their mother," al-Youssef, 29, told The Associated Press. "They were conscious, but 10 minutes later, we could smell [the gas], and my children couldn't handle it anymore. I left them to the medics and went to find my family."

He told the AP that he lost other family members in the horrific attack, which was just one in a series of chemical attacks in war-torn Syria.

"My brother Yasser is dead. I couldn't save him. So is my brother Abdel Kareem. My nephew Yasser Mohammad, I couldn't save. Ammar my nephew, I couldn't save. Shaimaa my niece, I couldn't save. My sister-in-law, they all died. Two of our workers, 11 of another family died in their own land. Khaled and his wife, Abounajib, his wife and his daughter," al-Youssef told the AP.
