Russian Federation present unharmed Syrians to OPCW, Western allies stay away

Both Moscow and Damascus, which now control Douma, deny chemical arms were used. Patients who visited the hospital suffering from asphyxiation had inhaled only smoke and dust. Panic was sparked when first responders entered the hospital and began yelling that chemical weapons had been used.

There is a geopolitical battle at stage and Syria are in the centre of it and the United Kingdom have been actively trying to overthrow the Assad regime with the USA since before the 2011 civil war outbreak.

One child, identified by Syrian government-provided translators as 11-year-old Hasan Diab from Ghouta, said he had been to a hospital after the attack.

Russian Federation has organized the briefing on Thursday at the headquarters of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons with about 15 Syrians, including at least three young children.

BEIRUT: inspectors collected samples Wednesday from a new location in the Syrian town of Douma, their second visit to the area that was hit by a suspected gas attack almost three weeks ago. A joint OPCW-U.N. investigation, however, blamed Syria for the attack. President Assad has repeatedly violated the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), a multilateral treaty that bans the use of chemical weapons.

With little more than his head and shoulders visible above the table, he looked healthy if slightly bewildered as he briefly recounted what happened to him before returning to sit with his mother in the front row of the audience, starting to fidget and walk around during the lengthy news conference. We heard cries on the street that we should go to the hospital. I don't know why. "But they have to carry out their report with a bunch of constraints that were placed upon them".

"Russia's decision to misuse it is yet another Russian attempt to undermine the OPCW's work, and in particular the work of its Fact Finding Mission investigating chemical weapons use in Syria".

French President Emmanuel Macron has said France wants to take a new initiative to help finding a sustainable political solution in Syria, following airstrikes on three chemical-weapons facilities in Syria in a joint operation with the US and Britain earlier this month.

But he added: "The Kim family is one of those regimes, however".


The United States and its allies were not convinced.

The attacks occurred on April 7, so two weeks elapsed before the first site was examined by the inspectors, and 18 days before the second was visited.

Investigators also found chemical weapons experts from the North were in the war-torn Middle Eastern nation to help Assad's scientists produce a terrifying arsenal of poison gasses and nerve agents. Photographs and videos, numerous and mutually reinforcing, have been authenticated.

"Finding some in the first place is hard but proving that it is actually used as weapon as a posed to a cleaning product is even more challenging", he said.

French Ambassador Philippe Lalliot says: "This obscene masquerade does not come as a surprise from the Syrian government, which has massacred and gassed its own people for the last seven years".

State news agency SANA said Thursday that dozens of IS fighters were killed in battles in the southern Damascus neighborhood of Hajar al-Aswad during which ground forces closely coordinated with the air force in bombarding the area.

At the time, the Syrian government denied the allegations and said the rebels and their foreign backers were fabricating events to attract foreign military action.

The Britain-based Observatory said the fighting that started April 19 has killed 68 Syrian troops and pro-government fighters as well as 52 IS militants.
