Damascus: Syria has been blamed for dropping chlorine bombs on its own citizens.
The International Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) says there is enough evidence that the Syrian air force used chlorine bombs in rebel-held territory.
According to a new investigative report released by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the Syrian air force dropped toxic chlorine gas on rebel-held residential areas in the city of Sarqab in 2018 with barrel bombs.
Although the chlorine gas dropped by barrel bombs in the rebel-held area of al-Talil did not cause any casualties, dozens of people were affected by the chemical poisoning, including prolonged nausea and dizziness.
Symptoms of shortness of breath, coughing, and sneezing were common.
The Syrian government has not yet commented on the OPCW report.
