France says Syria used chlorine in 14 recent attacks

Published: 05.14.14, 09:41 / Israel News

WASHINGTON - Syria may have used chemical weapons involving chlorine in 14 attacks in recent months, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on Tuesday, expressing concerns that Syrian President Bashar Assad is hiding toxic weapons.


"We have at least 14 indications that show us that, in the past recent weeks again, chemical weapons in a smaller scale have been used,

in particular chlorine," Fabius told a news conference through an interpreter. "Right now we are examining the samples that were taken."


Fabius said the Assad government had handed over 92 percent of its chemical weapons stockpile under an international agreement overseen by the watchdog Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). (Reuters)
