国际监督组织:叙利亚有人使用了化武 UN Chemical Weapons Watchdog Says Chemical Weapons 'Likely Used' in Attacks in Syria

一个全球化学武器监督组织星期三(2018年6月14日)称,该组织证实沙林和氯气“很可能”去年在叙利亚北部被人用来发动攻击。

禁止化学武器组织新发表一份报告称,2017年3月24日在叙利亚一个北部城镇艾拉塔明以南发生的攻击中有人可能使用了沙林,第二天在这座城市的医院及周边地区,有人可能用氯气作为武器发动了袭击。

禁止化学武器组织说,这项调查结果基于目击者的证词和样本分析。

该组织在2014年建立了一个调查小组,以回应有关叙利亚发生了化学武器攻击的诸多指责,并以“针对指责寻求事实”作为小组的工作责任。小组没有权责确认是谁发动了这些化武攻击。


A global chemical weapons watchdog said Wednesday it has confirmed the banned nerve agent sarin and chlorine were "very likely" used in an attack in northern Syria last year.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said in a new report that sarin was probably used south of the city of Ltamenah on March 24, 2017. The watchdog also concluded that chlorine was likely used as a weapon the next day at Ltamenah Hospital and in the surrounding area.

The organization said its conclusions were based on witness testimony and sample analyses.

The OPCW's fact-finding team was created in 2014 in response to numerous allegations of chemical attacks in Syria with a mandate to "establish facts surrounding the allegations." The team was not mandated to assign blame for the chemical attacks.
