Chemical arms sites in Syria destroyed, group says

Inspectors in Syria verify the destruction

LONDON — International inspectors said Thursday that they had verified the destruction of all but one of 23 chemical weapons sites declared by Syrian authorities under a deal brokered by Russia and the United States, determining that one of the two sites they had been unable to reach earlier had been “dismantled and long abandoned.”

The inspectors, from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, said their finding that the 22nd site, in the northern Aleppo region, had been destroyed was based on images from sealed cameras used by Syrian personnel who were working under their inspectors’ guidance.
