The United Nations Security Council released a report on the situation in Syria, putting Bashaar al-Assad’s regime responsible for the use of chemical substances against the armed opposition and civilian population.

Reuters wrote that with reference to the UN report based on the joint investigation by the UN and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. The investigation, which took 13 months, officially stated that the Syrian government used poisonous gas to attack Qmenas, Idlib province, in March 2015.

Another document poses Assad’s government responsible for another two attacks where chlorine was used – in April 2014 and March 2015.

The documents also said that the Syrian Air Force command used helicopters to deliver barrel bombs, which spread the poisonous chlorine upon exploding. However, currently, it would be quite difficult to find those behind these air raids, the reports said.
