BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 P.M.) – Experts from Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) confirmed the destruction of 10 out of 12 chemical weapons facilities in Syria, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported on Tuesday.

According to these experts, the only 2 chemical weapons facilities that were not destroyed were currently inside opposition-controlled territory.

While this doesn’t necessarily mean the opposition was behind the attacks in Khan Sheikhoun earlier this month, it does raise questions about the fate of these last two chemical weapons facilities and whether or not they are still used.

On Tuesday, the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, told reporters during his press conference with his Italian counterpart that the Syrian military was not to blame for the chemical weapons attack in Khan Sheikhoun and slammed the U.S.’ allegations against his government.

Some say the UN is useless, OPCW is the proof it isn’t!

Serenity DbSx, any idea where OPCW reported this in original text?

Nice find but was to be expected. AFAIK the weapon stores were hit and that can result in a catastrophe if chemical weapons were present.

p.s. Some claim the US war chief Trump used the missiles to get spies pardon inspectors into Syrian defense air ports.

Theres a chance trumps bombing was a master stroke you know. How do you respond to a fake chem attack? By staging a fake airstrike where you phone ahead, then miss the runway completely. And in the process completely confuse the braying Dem warpigs and Repub traitors likeMcCain.

The whole thing is cover-up by Russia. It’s even going as far as to making claims in OPCW instead. Even if it did not have those facilities, that doesn’t mean it couldn’t have bought new weapons or still have old weapons. This report tries to make it sound like OPCW is itself saying it. Improper news report.
