OPCW confirms the use of sarin in Syria

THE HAGUE – The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has confirmed that in march last year, most likely the nerve gas sarin has been used in the Syrian city of Ltamenah. That is a report of the special commission of inquiry that Wednesday is presented. The team members also come to the conclusion that chlorine gas was used in an attack on a hospital. The bombing took place on 24 and 25 march 2017.

The findings of the OPCW mission are based on the individual statements of witnesses, epidemiological studies, and in the environment samples taken. The collection and analysis of the material and the safety of the people has for some time taken before a final judgment could be formed.

The report on the events in Ltamenah is shared with the countries that have joined the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) and is also to the UN Security council sent.
