OPCW sources: Syria to miss deadline to destroy 12 chemical arms sites

Published: 03.06.14, 23:27 / Israel News

THE HAGUE - Syria will miss a major deadline next week in the program to destroy its chemical weapons production facilities, sources at the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said on Thursday.


Syria declared 12 production facilities to the OPCW and has until March 15 to destroy them under a deal agreed with the United States
and Russia. Damascus has already missed several deadlines laid out in the agreement.


"That will definitely be missed," said an official involved in discussions with Syria, referring to the March 15 deadline. The official, who asked not to be identified, said there were seven "hardened" aircraft hangars and five underground facilities. "None of them have been destroyed at the moment," the official said.


Syrian officials could not immediately be reached for comment. (Reuters)
