UN inquiry says Syrian military responsible for chemical attacks - Reuters

An inquiry by the United Nations and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has found the Syrian military was responsible for carrying out chemical attacks on civilians, Reuters reported.
"It was the 22nd Division, the 63rd Brigade and the 255 and 253 squadrons of the Syrian government," a Western diplomat reportedly told the news agency. 
Responding to the finding, a source within the Syrian military was quoted by Reuters as saying, "the Syrian state ... and we, the Syrian Arab army, have said more than once that the army has not and will not use any banned weapon, especially chemical or poison weapons."
"This issue is completely void of truth. We consider the United Nations to be a tool in the hands of some countries which support terrorists."
