      OPCW: Second Shipment of Chemical Weapons Removed from Syria

      The Organization for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) announced Monday that a second shipment of Syria's arsenal has been removed, despite rumors of an Israeli airstrike on the transport site earlier this week.

      "Today, a further shipment of chemical weapons materials took place from the Syrian Arab Republic," the United Nations and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said in a statement. "The chemical materials were verified by Joint Mission personnel before being loaded in Latakia port onto Danish and Norwegian cargo vessels for onward transportation."
