UN Urged to Address Ambiguities About Syria Gas Attack

The Iranian Academy of Medical Sciences (IAMS) has presented its findings related to a recent suspected chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma to the UN, calling on the world body to resolve ambiguities surrounding the alleged assault. In a letter to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, the academy said the scientific reasoning cited for the alleged chemical attack has raised many questions. IAMS president Alireza Marandi told Press TV that “we have extensive experience from Iraq’s chemical warfare against Iran in the 1980s”, adding that his team has come across many ambiguities connected to Douma incident. The academy members cast doubt on the body of unverified evidence of the alleged chemical attack, saying the incident was fabricated by groups which have an interest in drawing the western countries deeper into the Syrian crisis, he said. The suspected attack in Douma in Eastern Ghouta allegedly killed 60 people and injured hundreds others. Western governments rushed to blame the Syrian government, but Damascus strongly rejected the accusations as “fabrications” by terrorists in a bid to halt the Syrian army’s advance against terrorists and foreign-backed rebels.
