Syria's ambassador to the United Nations said experts from the OPCW chemical watchdog are awaiting the green light from a UN security assessment team before beginning their investigation of an alleged chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma.
The U.N. security team entered Douma to assess the situation ahead of the planned visit by inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), said the sources, who had been briefed on the team's deployment.
OPCW Director-General Ahmet Üzümcü said the United Nations Department of Safety and Security (UNDSS) had made a decision to carry out reconnaissance at two sites in the town of Douma before the inspectors would visit them.
"It is highly likely that evidence and essential elements disappear from the site, which is completely controlled by the Russian and Syrian armies", the French foreign ministry said. Even with the Douma investigation, there are allegations that Russian Federation has tampered with evidence on the ground.
" 'We've had over a week now where people, lots of different people, we don't know who may have traipsed in and out of that, ' he says".
Gunshots were fired at the United Nations security team and an explosive was detonated before the team returned to Damascus, OPCW Director-General Ahmet Uzumcu said. "At Site 2, the team came under small-arms fire and an explosive was detonated".
A Russian army commander has also said that Moscow would consider supplying S-300 missile systems to Syria following US -led strikes.

Syrian government forces will take over the towns once the departures are complete. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, over 100 cruise missiles were launched by the United States, Britain and France, most of which were intercepted by Syria's air defense systems.
Now it's unclear when the inspectors will be able to start working there.
"We are outraged by continuous distortions of facts and deliberate distortion of reality [on the Douma incident], that can be found in large quantities in statements by officials of a number of Western States", she added.
