Daraa - SMART

On Monday, the Syrian Network for Human Rights called to include the Syrian chemical weapons file under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter.

The Human Rights Organization said in a report that the loyalist forces continue to carry out violations, despite the UN Security Council resolutions against them. These resolutions are provided for imposing measures on the Syrian government, under Chapter VII, in the event of the Syrian government's non-compliance with the terms of the US-Russian agreement on the destruction of its chemical arsenal.

Article 41 of Chapter VII states that "The Security Council can decide on measures that do not require the use of armed forces to implement its decisions, and it can ask members of the United Nations to apply such measures. These measures may include the suspension of economic relations and iron, sea, air, postal, telegraph, radio and other means of transportation partially or completely, and cut off diplomatic relations. "

The report considered the meeting called on by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) on June 26 and 27, an appropriate chance to "correct catastrophic errors" of the Syrian chemical file and overcome the pressure of Russia and its allies as a state sponsor of the Syrian government's actions.

The director of the Syrian Network, Fadel Abdul Ghani, asks about the usefulness of the UN's assertion about the use of chemical weapons without specifying a perpetrator.

Since Dec. 23, 2012 until June 22, 2018, the organization noted that it documented 221 chemical attacks, of which the Syrian government is responsible for 216, mostly in the governorates of Damascus and Idlib. The Islamic State is responsible for the remaining five attacks in Aleppo.

The organization accused Russia of supporting the Syrian government forces in at least three chemical attacks by targeting ambulances and hospitals used to treat wounded people near target sites.

On April 7, 2018, the Syrian government forces targeted the city of Douma using toxic gases, suffocating about 1,200 people. One year before, the Syrian government forces also shelled the city of Khan Sheikhun in Idlib using sarin gas, killing 85 people, including 27 children and 19 women, and suffocating more than 546, most of them women and children, as well as paramedics and volunteers in the Civil Defense. The United States then responded by bombing the Shaerat military airbase in Homs.

On Aug. 21, 2013, chemical and toxic gas attacks on Eastern Ghouta killed and suffocated hundreds of civilians. Local coordination committees in Syria reported that the attacks killed and wounded 1,360 civilians, including dozens of women and children, in the massacre. At that time, the United Medical Office of Douma stated that the symptoms caused by the injuries indicate that the attacks were carried out using sarin gas.
