Chemical Weapons in the Middle East: Accountability and Deterrence
The Shirazi Foundation attended an event hosted by the Center for Strategic and International Studies, titled Chemical Weapons in the Middle East: Accountability and Deterrence. Experts shredded light on the chemical weapons attacks and the procedures and dangers that took place to care for the many bodies that have been attacked by these chemical weapons. Experts expressed concern in the area of the treatment of those affected by the chemical weapons, and how many requests for special supplies needed to treat the patients went unanswered. Experts also spoke of the process put in place to investigate those who use chemical weapons in warfare and the many agencies involved. Experts analyzed the different steps that have to be taken to hold those who use chemical weapons accountable and the organisations that have to confirm the use of those weapons. Experts explained that more has to be done in the region to approach possible future chemical weapons attacks on innocent civilians by catching the problem before hand.
