Chemical weapons investigators to visit Syrian attack site

Chemical weapons investigators to visit Syrian attack site

On Tuesday, Kirillov said that inspectors would be allowed once the roads leading to the site were "cleared of mines" and tested by United Nations forces for safety, according to NPR News.

France will spend 50 million euros ($62 million) on new projects in Syria to be carried out by around 20 humanitarian groups, the president's office said Monday.

Russia's U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said Tuesday that airstrikes on Syrian chemical sites on April 7 by the U.S., Britain and France had set back political negotiations to end the even-year conflict.

The UNDSS team will return to Douma as "soon as practically possible", Stephane Dujarric, spokesperson for the UN secretary general, said on Wednesday.

De Mistura also plans to meet with Turkish, Russian and Iranian officials as well as officials from several European counties and the U.S.

May, who has regained confidence after winning support for her tough stance on Syria and Russian Federation, will make a statement to parliament on her decision to join the United States and France in Saturday's strikes in retaliation for a suspected gas attack.

Josh Allen would not make any sense for the Jets to draft
Wednesday is the final day for teams to have draft prospects in for visits. "I would say for him maybe third, fourth (round)". What I'm hearing: The same. "I'm very big on - people get caught up in how athletic a guy is, how big an arm a guy has".


The team had to return to its base in Damascus after Tuesday's shooting attack.

The site visit came hours after reports of more global air strikes on Syrian military installations. She said Syrian officials have been searching evacuees from Douma to ensure samples are not smuggled out. The team's arrival in Damascus was postponed on Saturday after the US, France and Britain launched more than 100 cruise missiles at targets inside Syria.

"The Syrian government did all that it can do to facilitate the work of this mission".

The West has criticized the delay in allowing access to the site to the investigators, who arrived in Syria last week.

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Sunday that further Western attacks on Syria would bring chaos to world affairs, as Washington prepared to increase pressure on Russia with new economic sanctions.

The accounts contradict what the Syrian government and Russian Federation have reported: that there was no gas attack in Douma. Shayrat air base was targeted by US Tomahawk missiles in April past year in a strike ordered by President Donald Trump in retaliation for a suspected chemical attack on the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhun in Idlib.

Movies screened in Saudi cinemas will be subject to approval by government censors, as is the case in other Arab countries. A group from the Pacific Northwest is heading to Saudi Arabia to help teach women how to drive.


Syrian state media reported that missiles had again targeted an airbase overnight, but the commander in the regional military alliance backing the government, speaking on condition of anonymity, later told Reuters it was a false alarm.

It says the total number of evacuees has reached 5,000, including 1,500 gunmen.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said teaming up with France and the U.S. to destroy suspected chemical weapons bases had risked making the situation in the war-torn country worse.

Vassily Nebenzia, Russia's ambassador to the United Nations, said the idea of establishing a mechanism to determine responsibility for the use of chemical weapons is "futile" since Washington and its allies already identified who the "culprits" are, referencing the US-led attack on Syria.

The experts from the OPCW chemical watchdog are awaiting the green light from the security team before beginning their on-site investigation in Douma of the alleged attack. British Prime Minister Theresa May accused the two countries - whose forces now control the town east of Damascus - of trying to cover up evidence. The Russian military taskforce in Syria said it visited the hospital in Douma and talked to staff who said they did not confirm reports of such an assault.
