An international human rights group says evidence “strongly suggest” that Syrian government forces fired rockets with warheads containing a nerve agent into a Damascus suburb in August, killing hundreds of people there.
Human Rights Watch says it has examined documents from the alleged chemical attack on August 21 in Ghouta, a sprawling, rebel-held suburb of the Syrian capital.
The New York-based group says the nerve agent used was “most likely, sarin.”
In Tuesday's report, HRW says it analysed witness accounts and “the type of rockets and launchers used” in the attack.
It also says the group's experts studied documented medical symptoms of the victims and analysed activist videos posted on the Internet after the attack, which has brought the US to the brink of a military intervention Syria's civil war. - Sapa-AP
