URGENT Damascus slams 'misleading' chemical arms watchdog report Damascus, April 9, 2020 (AFP) - The Syrian government on Thursday criticised as "misleading" a report by the global chemical weapons watchdog that for the first time blamed Damascus for toxic attacks in 2017. "The report of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons on the use of poisonous substances in the town of Latamneh in 2017 is misleading and contains falsified and fabricated conclusions aimed at falsifying truths and accusing the Syrian government," the foreign ministry said in a statement. bur/lar/ah/dr
