Syriens improvisierte chemische Raketen
April 18, 2018 -- Inspektoren der Organisation für das Verbot von Chemiewaffen (OPCW) werden in Kürze ihre Arbeit in Douma, einer Stadt in der Nähe von Damaskus, aufnehmen.
The alleged chemical attack on April 7 is the sixth chemical attack in Douma in 2018. Munitions recovered from previous attacks show they are modified Iranian 107mm rockets.
In addition to collecting samples, OPCW inspectors will be looking for other clues to confirm the alleged use of banned toxins in the attack on April 7.
Analysis of the samples will take place at the OPCW’s central laboratory in the Netherlands. The evidence is split and sent to independent national laboratories affiliated with the OPCW.
The inspectors will also be looking for other evidence, such as canisters, rocket or bomb fragments, impact sites and craters and will take photographs and video of them.
The OPCW Fact-Finding Mission will not assign blame.
