Three-fourths of Syria's chemical stockpile destroyed: OPCW
A report has revealed that almost three-fourths of Syria's chemical weapons have been destroyed.
A U.S. container ship, MV Cape Ray, along with 35 mariners, 64 chemical specialists, a security team, and a contingent from the U.S. European Command were tasked with destroying Syria's 620 tons of chemical weaponry on July 7.
The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has confirmed that they have already destroyed 74.2 percent of the stockpile, reported The Washington Times.
The hydrolysis process involves mixing the bad chemicals with neutralizing agents until the chemical material is safe enough for standard shipping containers and commercial waste-treatment facilities.
