Allegations of chemical weapon use by Syria continued to dominate the work of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in 2018. The Declaration Assessment Team continued its work to resolve gaps, inconsistencies and discrepancies in Syria’s initial declaration, and the Fact-finding Mission in Syria continued to collect and analyse information in relation to allegations of use. Among the allegations was an attack in Douma on 7 April 2018 that prompted the United States, the United Kingdom and France to launch retaliatory strikes against three sites one week later.
