Chlorine likely used in February attack in Idlib, Syria: OPCW chemical weapons agency


AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Chlorine gas was probably used in an attack in February in Saraqib in the northwestern Syrian province of Idlib, the global chemical weapons agency said on Wednesday.


The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons did not say which side used the banned munitions, but that laboratory tests confirmed the presence of chlorine.
