A hospital in Syria's northern Idlib province was hit soon after the area was bombarded with a suspected chemical agent, an AFP correspondent reported.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said there were 11 children among the dead. The Syrian medical relief group UOSSM reported that the overall death toll had been elevated to 100, according to Reuters.
I can't believe it's come to chemical warfare or that they haven't stopped these folks yet.

Could it be Russia striking back for the recent subway attack?

The Syrian military (of course) denies any use of chemical weapons. It was a rebel held area, so it seems unlikely the rebels would have done it. Russia is just as likely as anything at this point, I guess.
I'm not really knowledgeable on the topic of Syria, so I'd hate to guess.
