June 14, 2018

The latest OPCW report says sarin and chlorine were used in northern Syria in March last year.

The global chemical weapons watchdog says lab analysis has confirmed the use of the banned nerve agent sarin and chlorine in an attack in northern Syria last year.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said in a statement on Wednesday that sarin was used south of the city of Ltamenah in the Hama governate on March 24, 2017.

It also "concluded that chlorine was very likely used as a chemical weapon at Ltamenah Hospital and the surrounding area on 25 March 2017".
