Syria Chemical Weapons Inspectors

May 27, 2014 by  

Syria Chemical Weapons Inspectors, A convoy of chemical weapons inspectors and UN staff that was travelling to a site of an alleged chlorine gas attack in Syria has come under attack.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said they were all safe and well, and were travelling back to their operating base.

It did not say whether they had been kidnapped in Hama province, as the Syrian government earlier claimed.

OPCW director general, Ahmet Uzumcu, expressed his concern for their safety.

“Our inspectors are in Syria to establish the facts in relation to persistent allegations of chlorine gas attacks,” he said in a statement.

“Their safety is our primary concern, and it is imperative that all parties to the conflict grant them safe and secure access.”

‘Hijacked’
The OPCW inspectors were trying to reach the rebel-held village of Kafr Zaita, where there have been six alleged chlorine attacks in two months.
