Inspectors From OPCW have Samples From Douma
A team of inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) visited a site in Douma, Syria on Saturday to collect samples as it tries to determine whether such weapons were used there on April 7, the agency said, cited by Reuters.
In a statement, the OPCW said it would now evaluate and consider whether the team needs to make a second visit to Douma.
Samples will be transported back to the Netherlands and onward to the organization’s network of designated labs for analysis.
Based on the analysis of the sample results as well other information and materials collected by the team, the mission would compile a report and submit it to the organization’s member states, the statement said.
