The fact-finding mission of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) was delayed from entering Douma to investigate allegations of the April 7th chemical weapons attack because the Assad regime claimed their paperwork was not in order, or as Assad official Fares Shehabi said, OPCW didn’t follow proper procedures. It was announced yesterday that OPCW investigators were on their way from Damascus to Douma. But now OPCW is announcing that a UN security team made a reconnaissance visit to two sites to determine safety for the fact-finding mission. They were forced to withdraw from the first site by a menacing crowd & from the second site because they came under small arms fire & an explosive was detonated. Assad propagandists & their guppies will claim it was terrorist fire but they have been evacuated & Douma is under the control of the Russian Military Police. The UN security team does not consider Douma safe for the OPCW fact-finding mission. They have returned to Damascus & do not know when they will be allowed unhindered access to the sites.
