Sarin or similar used in Idlib: watchdog

Sarin or similar used in Idlib: watchdog

French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault pledged Wednesday that France will release proof tying the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to the chemical weapons attack in Idlib.

After the US strike, Russian Federation said it would suspend its participation in a hotline with the United States military to "deconflict" or minimize the risk of mid-air collisions in Syrian airspace, but USA officials said this week that the two militaries continued to communicate.

The tests were conducted on samples from three people killed in the attack and seven survivors and analysed at four OPCW-designated laboratories.

But it ignored that the OPCW, based in The Hague, is already investigating the April 4 attack on the rebel-held town in Idlib province which killed 87, including many children.

The Syrian military has denied using chemical weapons, and its Russian ally has claimed the Syrian airstrike on Khan Sheikhoun targeted a rebel warehouse of chemical munitions. The Syrian National Coalition of Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, as well as a number of Western states, accused the Syrian government troops of carrying out the attack, while Damascus refuted these allegations, with a Syrian army source telling Sputnik that the army did not possess chemical weapons.

A fact-finding mission from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, an global watchdog, is investigating the April 4 incident and today its director-general, Ahmet Uzumcu, said that the results "from four OPCW designated laboratories indicate exposure to sarin or a sarin-like substance".

Israeli estimates of Assad's current chemical weapons stockpile add to questions raised after the sarin gas attack. US President Donald Trump said this was the base from which the poison gas attack was flown out of on Tuesday.

This amounted to 1,300 tons of agent and their precursors, the materials needed to weaponize the chemicals. The chemical weapons were shipped outside Syria and destroyed overseas, with the most toxic material disposed of at sea aboard a US ship.

"The Syrian regime should think long and hard before it again acts so recklessly in violation of worldwide law against the use of chemical weapons", Mattis said, later adding: "If they use chemical weapons, they are going to pay a very, very stiff price". But doubts began to emerge soon afterward that not all such armaments or production facilities were declared and destroyed. Israel welcomed the strike on its northern neighbor.
