The officers of the fact-finding mission on the chemical weapon use in Syria visited the second location in Douma, where the chemical attack probably happened, and gathered samples, as the press-office of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) stated.
“Today, the FFM team carried out a visit to a second location in Douma. It also collected samples at this site. These samples will be brought back, together with other samples, to the OPCW laboratory in Rijswik. They will be split and dispatched for analysis by the OPCW designated labs,” the message says.
It is noted that the samples will be separated and sent to the laboratory for the analysis.
Earlier, a chemical attack happened in Douma in East Ghouta on April 7, when 70 people died as a result. The West blames Bashar al-Assad and Russia for the attack. The U.S. President Donald Trump on April 13 ordered missile attacks at the territory of Syria as a reaction on chemical weapon use in Douma. Britain and France joint them.
Earlier, Russia’s Foreign Ministry press-office reported that the OPCW arrive in Douma to investigate the chemical attack. First samples the OPCW experts gathered on April 21.
