THE HAGUE, NETHER­LANDS | The global chem­i­cal weapons watch­dog said Wed­nes­day that the nerve agent sarin and toxic chem­i­cal chlo­rine were “very likely” used as weapons in two at­tacks in cen­tral Syria in late March 2017, the lat­est con­fir­ma­tion of chem­i­cal at­tacks in the civil war.

The Or­ga­ni­za­tion for the Pro­hi­bi­tion of Chem­i­cal Weapons said that its fact-find­ing mis­sion prob­ing sus­pected at­tacks in Syria found that “sarin was very likely used as a chem­i­cal weapon in the south of Latam­neh” in Hama prov­ince on March 24 and that chlo­rine was very likely used a day later at and near Latam­neh Hospi­tal.
