International Supervisors Call for Proven Chemical Weapons in Syria

Photo: AP – The fact-finding mission team of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has released a tentative report on the investigation of the use of chemical weapons in Douma, Syria.

Quoted from MSN, Saturday (7/7/2018), the OPCW said in the lyrical that they found chlorine gas in a sample of two corpses.

They say the gas was used in an attack on Douma in April that killed 78 civilians.

“Along with explosive residues, various chlorinated organic chemicals are found in samples from two sites, which are full chain guards,” he said.

In addition, they also conducted interviews with various witnesses of this case to gather as much evidence as possible.

“The fact-finding team will continue its work to draw a final conclusion,” he said.

On April 7, Douma, an area in East Ghouta still controlled by Syrian rebel groups, was the target of a toxic gas attack. The attack, which was originally suspected to use chemical weapons, killed at least 70 people.
