In 2018 the conflict in Syria entered its seventh year and, as in previous years, allegations of chemical weapon (CW) use continued to be made.1 The most recent of these allegations came on 28 November when the Syrian authorities notified the Director-General of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) of an incident of alleged CW use in Aleppo on 24 November.2 As well as analysing and investigating such allegations through its Fact-finding Mission (FFM), the OPCW Declaration Assessment Team (DAT) continued its efforts to clarify outstanding issues regarding the initial declaration submitted by Syria.
