According to Mr. Üzümcü, the UN security mission, "today came under fire in the Duma."
From the statement of the head of the OPCW:
The UN Security Mission, which is designed to ensure the work of the OPCW mission, came under fire in the Duma today. In such conditions, our specialists are unlikely to be able to start work today in Eastern Gute.
Thus, militants from among those from whom East Guta has not yet been cleansed will use all the possibilities to carry out provocations with the sole purpose that the OPCW mission does not start monitoring in the area. But is there a desire to work at the OPCW itself - a separate question. Will they look for reasons to delay the start of work for an indefinite period?
It is also reported that a Russian soldier was wounded in the Duma. This information is not officially confirmed.
