German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier announces that German experts will be part of an international mission to destroy Syria's chemical weapons arsenal.
Israel has fired missiles at a military facility in the Damascus countryside, a Syrian opposition watchdog reports. According to Syrian state media, air defense systems intercepted three of the missiles.
The chemical weapons watchdog OPCW said sarin was used in an attack on a northern Syrian town five days before the banned nerve agent killed dozens in Khan Sheikhoun, prompting global outrage.
The Syrian government has said Israel targeted a military facility in Masyaf, killing at least two people. The target is believed to have been a Syrian government agency branch responsible for producing chemical weapons.
German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier has called on Germany and Russia to "rebuild a minimum of trust." He's the first German head of state to visit Russia in seven years.
