Destruction of Chemical Weapons Begins in Syria

Ad Feedback

The process to destroy the chemical weapons stockpile in Syria is officially underway, according to the United Nations. Both weapons and the machinery used to create them are being dismantled.
 
The U.N. has tasked international inspectors with dismantling and ultimately destroying Syria's chemical weapon program by mid-2014.
 
The push to destroy Syria's chemical weapons program came after an August attack near Damascus that killed more than 1,000 civilians.

The Obama administration threatened to launch punitive missile strikes against Syria, prompting frantic diplomatic efforts to forestall an attack. Those efforts concluded with September's unanimous U.N. Security Council resolution endorsing the elimination of Syria's chemical weapons.
