Chemical weapon is reported to be used in Syria 2013.08.21. [5]. The Syrian rebels attribute the attack to the Syrian and Russian dictators Bashar Assad and Vladimir Putin. Bashar Assad denies the accusation.

Hypothesis that the chemical weapon used in Syria is exported from the chemical weapon storage No.38 (near Pavlovskaya Sloboda, Moscow Region, Russia) is suggested [1] (In Russian). This hypothesis is illustrated at [2]. There is independent confirmation that the weapon used in Syria in 2013 had been made much earlier in the USSR [4]; such a weapon could be sold to the terrorists by the soviet veterans.


Many petitioners believe, that the USA administration is able to put Syria in order and, at least, eliminate the possibility of future use of weapon of the mass destruction there. Their petition is available at the Avaaz site [6].

Some skepticism about ability of the USA to resolve military conflicts outside the USA is expressed in article Democracy for export, written in 2003 about another case, that seems to have nothing to do with Syria.

2017.04.15, Josie Ensor indicates, that Bashar Assad still has 'hundreds of tonnes' of chemicals stockpiled, [7]

Statement from Pentagon Spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis on U.S. strike in Syrian U.S. strike in Syria

IMMEDIATE RELEASE No. NR-126-17

April 6, 2017

Statement from Pentagon Spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis on U.S. strike in Syria

At the direction of the president, U.S. forces conducted a cruise missile strike against a Syrian Air Force airfield today at about 8:40 p.m. EDT (4:40 a.m., April 7, in Syria). The strike targeted Shayrat Airfield in Homs governorate, and were in response to the Syrian government’s chemical weapons attack April 4 in Khan Sheikhoun, which killed and injured hundreds of innocent Syrian people, including women and children.

The strike was conducted using Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles (TLAMs) launched from the destroyers USS Porter and USS Ross in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. A total of 59 TLAMs targeted aircraft, hardened aircraft shelters, petroleum and logistical storage, ammunition supply bunkers, air defense systems, and radars. As always, the U.S. took extraordinary measures to avoid civilian casualties and to comply with the Law of Armed Conflict. Every precaution was taken to execute this strike with minimal risk to personnel at the airfield.

The strike was a proportional response to Assad’s heinous act. Shayrat Airfield was used to store chemical weapons and Syrian air forces. The U.S. intelligence community assesses that aircraft from Shayrat conducted the chemical weapons attack on April 4. The strike was intended to deter the regime from using chemical weapons again.

Russian forces were notified in advance of the strike using the established deconfliction line. U.S. military planners took precautions to minimize risk to Russian or Syrian personnel located at the airfield.

We are assessing the results of the strike. Initial indications are that this strike has severely damaged or destroyed Syrian aircraft and support infrastructure and equipment at Shayrat Airfield, reducing the Syrian Government’s ability to deliver chemical weapons. The use of chemical weapons against innocent people will not be tolerated.

Scientific interest

In order to treat well the requests by the international civil societies, some links about the chemical weapon are collected at TORI. An additional goal of this article is the example that the research articles should not be treated as "politics", even if publications about political leaders of various countries happen to be the object of investigation.

Government Enters Realm of Crimes against Humanity. New York) – New evidence supports the conclusion that Syrian government forces have used nerve agents on at least four occasions in recent months: on April 4, 2017, in a chemical attack on Khan Sheikhoun that killed at least 92 people, and on three other occasions in December 2016 and March 2017, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. These attacks are part of a broader pattern of Syrian government forces’ use of chemical weapons. The attacks are widespread and systematic and in some cases have been directed against the civilian population. These two features mean the attacks could meet the legal standard required to characterize them as crimes against humanity. As part of the evidence showing these attacks have become widespread and systematic, the 48-page report, “Death by Chemicals: The Syrian Government’s Widespread and Systematic Use of Chemical Weapons,” identifies three different systems being used to deliver chemical weapons..
