OPCW to continue probe into use of chemical weapons

Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) on Saturday announced that it will continue probe into the use of chemical weapons in Syria’s Douma Saturday.

In a statement, the OPCW said it’s Fact-Finding Mission will continue its deployment in Syria to establish facts about the allegations of use of chemical weapons.

The statement also indicated that ongoing investigations remain confidential.

The U.S., U.K. and France jointly launched strikes targeting the Assad regime's alleged chemical weapons research center near Damascus, a chemical weapons warehouse and a command center linked to chemical weapons located west of Homs, U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Joseph Dunford said at a joint news conference with American Secretary of Defense James Mattis.

The White Helmets, a civil defense agency, blamed the Assad regime for an alleged chemical attack earlier this month, which it said killed 78 civilians and injured hundreds of others.
