Associated Press•June 13, 2018

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — The global chemical weapons watchdog says the nerve agent sarin and toxic chemical chlorine were "very likely" used as weapons in two attacks in central Syria in late March 2017.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said Wednesday that its Fact-Finding Mission probing alleged attacks in Syria found that "sarin was very likely used as a chemical weapon" in the south of Latamneh in Hama province on March 24 and that chlorine was very likely used a day later at and near Latamneh Hospital.

The OPCW's fact-finding team is not mandated to apportion blame for chemical attacks.

The organization says its findings were based on witness testimony and analysis of samples.

1. By Al-Qaeda.

We should be trying to squash the 'Army of Islam' - the al-Qaeda offshoot that's superseded ISIS as Syria's main threat.
