Al-Ikhbariya TV says the fighters from the Army of Islam rebel group and their families have begun evacuating the town of Dumayr, bound for opposition-held areas in the north as part of the agreement. Another said they had been met by protesters demanding aid, and gunfire was heard.

Independent experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons arrived in Damascus on Saturday to carry out a fact-finding mission. Russian Federation has denied a chemical attack took place at all, saying it was faked.

Douma was the last rebel-held town near Damascus, and the target of a government offensive in February and March that killed hundreds of people and displaced tens of thousands. However, the U.S., U.K., and France remained adamant in their resolve to discipline the Syrian government after the attack, while they also attempted to accommodate Russian Federation and its stance on the attack.

Chemical weapons inspectors will only deploy to the Syrian town of Douma if they are given unhindered access, the OPCW chief said Wednesday, adding it was unknown when the team would go.

United Nations Security Council-mandated inspectors have probed previous attacks and decided President Assad's regime was responsible four times, MPs were told.

The U.S. and France say they have evidence that poison gas was used in the April 7 attack in Douma, killing at least 40 people, and that Syrian President Bashar Assad's military was behind it.

OPCW Director-General Ahmet Uzumcu told a closed-door meeting of his organization that it remains unclear when the team will be able to deploy to Douma, U.K. Ambassador Peter Wilson told reporters in The Hague.

The OPCW team dispatched to Syria to investigate does not have a mandate to assign blame. World leaders like President Emmanuel Macron of France and United Kingdom government officials strongly believe that this attack was a motivated chemical attack on civilians carried out by the Syrian government.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov denied that Russia interfered with any evidence.

I thought I had it, but you're so nervous watching it. "When we were coming in somebody said to us why don't you enter so I did". On the way down the commentator said I was the oldest in the race so I thought "I'd better not come back next year".

There was no comment from the OPCW or the United Nations on Wednesday. The latest weapons being used against civilians in Syria are chemical weapons.

Analysts have said however that it would take more for the West to mount a meaningful challenge to Russia's weight as a broker. In contrast, a year after Mr. Trump responded to an apparent chemical weapons attack with a missile attack, apparently Syria did it again.

"I can guarantee that Russian Federation has not tampered with the site", Lavrov told the BBC in an interview Monday.

While the USA went after ISIS and "actually achieved lasting gains for the Syrian people, the Assad regime was busy bombarding civilians in places like Aleppo, Idlib and Eastern Ghouta", Currie said.
