Syria govt behind gas attack in April

Although, at times, witnesses told the commission that fighters were injured or killed in chemical weapons attacks, the report notes that "the use of chemical weapons is prohibited in all circumstances, including when a military objective is present".

Despite an internationally backed effort to remove the Syrian government's chemical weapons stockpiles, USA intelligence officials believe that it retains a significant quantity that could still be used for attacks on civilians.

Targeting medical facilities and healthcare personnel is a war crime.

The investigators revealed that the Assad led Syrian government's warplane dropped sarin on the town in Idlib province, killing more than 80 civilians.

The Khan Sheikhoun attack was just one of 33 chemical weapons attacks that it has documented.

United Nations investigators formally accused the Syrian government Wednesday of using the banned nerve agent sarin in a deadly chemical weapons attack in April that left dozens of civilians dead and hundreds more wounded.

The Syrian government and its Russian backers had insisted that the Khan Sheikhoun attack was the fault of opposition forces in the area, or that it was entirely fabricated.

In the first UN report to officially lay blame for the attack on Damascus, the UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria said it had gathered an "extensive body of information" showing Damascus was behind the horrific sarin gas attack in Khan Sheikhun on April 4 that killed at least 83 people.

About 60,000 people had to leave their homes after being warned that an uncontrolled explosion could flatten a city block. In a show of public spirit, museums are opening their doors for free to provide evacuees with a place to spend the day.

The US launched a retaliatory cruise-missile strike days after the attack which targeted a Syrian air base alleged to have facilitated the attack. "In the gravest incident, the Syrian air force used sarin in Khan Sheikhoun, Idlib, killing dozens, the majority of whom were women and children", the report said, declaring it a war crime. The report identified them as Soviet-made S-5M rockets, used by the Syrian air force.

The report also found that U.S. forces failed to take all feasible precautions to protect civilians and civilian objects when attacking alleged terrorists and destroying part of a mosque complex in al-Jinah, Aleppo, in March, in violation of worldwide humanitarian law.

The investigators also appealed to the US -led coalition to better protect civilians as it strikes at Islamic State militants in the east. His apologists can try to wiggle away from Obama's culpability, but the fact of the matter is that Obama made the decision not to take out Syria's chemical weapons supply and then made a ridiculous deal with Syria's ally Russian Federation to have the stockpile removed.

The UN is reporting that the Syrian government has used poison gas to attack civilians at least 27 times.
