Testimony of witnesses and victims near Damascus confirm the assumption that neuro-paralytic agent was used by Syrian opposition.
This was stated by Carla del Ponte, a member of the UN special commission on human rights violations and war crimes in Syria. According to her, “the expert commission has not yet found any evidence of the use of chemical weapons by the government army.”
Today, after the break, a group of UN inspectors on chemical weapons resumed its work in Syria. The day before they did not work for reasons of safety.
Meanwhile, the UN special envoy on Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi said the United States, Britain, and France have not yet provided any evidence of the use of chemical weapons in Syria. He stressed that any hostility against Syria is only possible with the authorization of the UN Security Council. “I am sure that President Obama and the U.S. administration take their time to press the trigger,” said Brahimi, speaking in Geneva.
