Mission Update - 5

6 November 2013

Further progress made by the team, following completion of 27 October and 1 November targets

The OPCW-UN Joint Mission has now verified 22 of the 23 sites.

The additional site inspected is in the region of Aleppo and was one of the two sites that could not be visited earlier due to safety and security reasons. The verification was conducted with the support of sealed cameras used by Syrian personnel as per the inspection team’s guidance. The exact geographical location and the time of capture of the footage/images were fully authenticated. As per the declaration by Syria, the site was confirmed as dismantled and long abandoned with the building showing extensive battle damage.
