Russia Agrees To Investigators Visiting Site Of Chemical Attack

Posted on April 17, 2018

US officials have raised concerns that Russia may have tampered with the site while inspectors were denied access. Syria and its ally Russia deny responsibility for the attack, with Russia claiming that it was “staged”. Activists on the ground in Syria say the attack killed more than 40 people and injured hundreds more sheltering from bombing in basements beneath the city. Video footage and witness testimony suggests that gas seeped down into the basements, suffocating the victims. In response to the attack, the US, UK and France carried out targeted military strikes against Syrian chemical weapons facilities.
