UN INSPECTORS TO VISIT AL-SHAYRAT AIR BASE

Diplomatic sources reported that a group of United Nations experts on chemical weapons will visit Al-Shayrat air base, which was allegedly used for carrying out chemical attacks, according to the US claims.

The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that the UN experts will head to Damascus next week and then will travel to the air base location in the Homs province in central Syria.

The visit is a joint effort by the UN and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. It comes as a response to criticism from Russia and the Syrian government, who accused the joint investigation team of bias in favor of the opposition.
