Investigators of the United Nations Commission of inquiry on Syria have gathered testimonies from victims and medical staffs indicating that fighters of the Syrian opposition have used the nerve agent sarin, a commission member, Carla Del Ponte said.
” The United Nations Commission of inquiry on Syria has not yet seen evidence of government forces using chemical weapons,” Reuters quoted Del Ponte as saying in a televised interview on Sunday.
She added : â€œOur investigators have been in neighboring countries interviewing victims, doctors and field hospitals,â€
â€œAccording to their report of last week, which I have seen, there are strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof of the use of sarin gas, from the way the victims were treated,â€ Carla Del Ponte stressed.
She said : â€œThis was use on the part of the opposition’s fighters, not by the government authorities.â€
