UN Security Council wants to investigate on the chemical attacks in Syria

The UN Security Council on Thursday unanimously decided to extend for another year the mandate of a panel tasked with investigating chemical attacks in Syria and identifying those responsible. The terrorist organizations like Jabhat al-Nusra and other groups linked to it, which some countries label as “moderate opposition”, have repeatedly used chemical weapons against civilians in several areas of Syria, most recently in Aleppo, where those organizations targeted the residential neighborhoods with toxic gases including chlorine gas, causing many cases of asphyxiation. According to Russia Today website, Russia had said it wanted the inquiry to be broadened to look more at the “terrorist chemical threat” within the region, and the resolution to renew the mandate included language to reflect that request.
