Days after the lifting of the siege on Deir Ezzor, the UN finds Syrian government responsible for Khan Sheikhoun chemical attack

Just days after the Syrian Army lifted the three year ISIS-imposed siege on the eastern Syrian city of Deir Ezzor, the United Nations have found the Syrian government responsible for the Khan Sheikhoun chemical attack that occurred earlier this year.

At least 100 people were killed on April 4 this year in Khan Sheikhoun after a chemical attack.

The United Nations Independent Commission to Investigate Human Rights Violations also concluded that “the Syrian authorities used sarin gas at least seven times between March and June last.”

However, despite the UN announcing that “the Syrian authorities were behind the incident” at Khan Sheikhoun, no UN investigators traveled to the attack site to gather samples or conduct investigations, making the findings dubious at best.
