(TASS) Tests have shown that Sarin or a similar nerve agent was used in the Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said in a press release published at its homepage on Wednesday.

“The bio-medical samples collected from three victims during their autopsy were analysed at two OPCW designated laboratories,” it said. “The results of the analysis indicate that the victims were exposed to Sarin or a Sarin-like substance.”

“Bio-medical samples from seven individuals undergoing treatment at hospitals were also analysed in two other OPCW designated laboratories,” press release said. “Similarly, the results of these analyses indicate exposure to Sarin or a Sarin like substance.”

OPCW Director General Ahmet Uzumcu told members of the organization’s Executive Council the results of tests done by designated laboratories were “incontrovertible”.

He also said the organization was prepared to dispatch a fact-finding mission to Khan Sheikhoun as soon as the situation there was safe enough for an effort of this kind.

ofc – if Ahmet told it was sarin, then by all means it must have been sarin – or else…

How conclusive can any evidence be if they still cannot say with any certainty what chemical was used….was it Sarin?? or if not what was it that’s similar???

Sloppy headline. Confirming “sarin or a sarin-like substance,” i.e. an organophosphate nerve agent, is not the same as confirming actual sarin gas. That’s the kind of deception the western MSM does deliberately. Please be more careful.

Uzumcu is Turkey’s permanent representative to NATO, hardly an impartial player. Claims on Youtube by Abdul Hamid Yousef that he awoke to the blast at Khan Sheikhun with his family and immediately smelled the gas are irreconcilable with his family allegedly dying from Sarin. In the first place Sarin is odorless. Secondly he said he rushed outside to assist victims. He had no respirator, no CBW overalls, but he claims he was at the blast site helping victims.
