Momentum is gaining among members of the UN Security Council for a resolution against Syria. But will it be enough to end the war?
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.
Syrian forces used chemical weapons at least 27 times over the course of the civil war, UN investigators have found. The UN report also decries the US for failing to protect civilians in its attacks on Islamist forces.
The White House has claimed that it has identified plans for another chemical weapons attack in Syria. It warned of drastic action should Assad use chemical weapons.
