Syria - Chemical weapons (17 April 2018)

"The two leaders emphasized the importance of continuing the joint efforts of Turkey, Iran and Russia.to protect Syrian territorial integrity and find a lasting, peaceful solution to the crisis", a Turkish presidential source said following telephone talks between President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani.

Stating Turkey's clear stance against the use of chemical weapons, Erdoğan said it is important to not allow tensions to escalate and evaluate the incidents within its context.

Syria's UN ambassador said a United Nations security team travelled to the Syrian town of Douma ahead of a planned visit by global chemical weapons experts on Wednesday to look into a suspected poison gas attack that sparked a USA -led retaliatory strike.

According to a United Nations source who spoke to Reuters News Agency, inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons' (OPCW) who arrived in Syria some days ago have postponed their entry to the site as a result of reported gunfire.

Syria and its ally Russian Federation deny any chemical attack took place in Douma.

The issue had been dealt with by Russian experts, said the commander, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity.

Recovering the Yarmouk camp and neighbouring areas south of the city would give Mr Assad complete control over Syria's capital.

Syrian air defense forces opened fire in the middle of the night Tuesday to repel a non-existent attack later said to be a "false alarm". Yarmouk, Syria's biggest camp for Palestinian refugees, has been under the control of Islamic State fighters for years.

In Idlib in northwest Syria, the largest area still held by rebels, a government assault could bring Damascus into confrontation with Turkey, which has set up a string of military observation posts in the area.
