The OPCW-FFM report on the Al Lataminah March 30th Sarin attack is consistent with the open source evidence and witness statements gathered by Bellingcat and DPA

Lots of miosis in the description of victims symptoms, a sign of Sarin use (although not exclusive to Sarin)

The impact site described in the OPCW-FFM report on the Al-Lataminah March 30th Sarin attack matches the one geolocated by Bellingcat from open source material

This is new to OPCW-FFM reports, lots of photos of the objects tested along with the chemicals detected. Same chemicals as other Sarin attacks in Syria, including our old friend hexamine. Caprolactam is a new one.

One piece of debris from the al-Lataminah attack site, the remains of tail fins covered in Sarin and Sarin byproducts.

Interesting here, one of the objects recovered had traces of green paint on it, same as we saw in Khan Sheikhoun

Oh man, they recovered a Russian АВУ-ЭТ bomb fuze from the site of the Al-Lataminah Sarin attack, covered in Sarin and Sarin byproducts. No way Russia will want this investigated.

So, in conclusion, the Al-Lataminah Sarin attack appears to have been done by the same munition as Khan Sheikhoun, and clearly indicates the use of an airdropped munition, so Syria is guilty as hell.

I'll put together something in more detail on this tomorrow, but really an incredible amount of information in the new OPCW-FFM report.

it's been exposed to temps over 30 deg C and the sarin didn't evaporate?

"They" recovered? The Al Qaeda/White Helmets CLAIM "they" recovered evidence? Wow! Scientific methodology isn't for you & your cohorts is it.

Of course it evaporates but like every form of liquid or gas, it leaves a residue.

Is that remnant residue the same as the original substance or different to it?
