Chemical attack that killed close to 100 people in Syria was the work of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad - U.N report

The Sarin attack at Khan Sheikhun, Syria, on the 4th of April this year that killed close to 100 people with spine-chilling videos showing even children gasping for air while foaming in their mouth, is the handwork of Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, the United Nations has revealed in a report, Thursday, six month after the attack.

 

Assad has been accused of multiple war crimes and crimes against humanity by the U.N, which his regime backed by Russia, has continued to deny, saying they don’t have chemical weapons claiming an airstrike hit a chemical weapons depot in the region.

Donald Trump, angered by the Syrian attack, which he said ‘no child of God’ should experience, ordered the U.S Military to launch 59 cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase.

“‎Time and again, we see independent confirmation of chemical weapons use by the Assad regime. And in spite of these independent reports, we still see some countries trying to protect the regime. That must end now,”  Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the United Nations, said in a statement, Thursday night.

“The panel is confident that the Syrian Arab Republic is responsible for the release of Sarin at Khan Sheikhun on 4 April 2017,” the UN report says.

The report released Thursday was compiled by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the United Nations’ Joint Investigative Mechanism, the investigative panel probing the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
