"Gassed" in context

Gassed is a term used to describe the effects of a chemical attack or long-term exposure to toxic chemicals, usually found in areas of conflict. Gas, usually a defoliating agent such as phosphorus or chlorine, is released in a confined area to produce an intense, mixture of smoke and harmful gases. The gases produced are usually odorless, colorless and tasteless, making it extremely difficult to detect until it is too late. Gassed victims can suffer from a wide range of effects, including blindness, lung disease and long-term neural damage.

In the context of war, gassing is prohibited under international law.
