The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), has confirmed that traces of Sarin gas used in Syria are not linked to the Syrian government.

The chemical weapons used in Syria had been stolen from Libya and later smuggled into Syria via Turkey by Western supported extremist militants. The report backs up assertions from the Syrian government that the faction responsible for the 12 chemical attacks was the Syrian opposition.

The announcement follows an investigation carried out by the OPCW @ the request of the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian government.

When the devastating Sarin gas attack left some 1.400 civilians dead in East Ghouta in 2013, the USA and the EU were quick to accuse the Syrian military of utilizing chemical weapons to combat ISIS in the Syrian capital.

The Syrian government agreed with Russia and the USA to have its stockpile safely demolished in Norway. Last month it was announced that the entire chemical stockpile had been safely disposed of.

Prior to the 2013 attack, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported that the Syrian Army had seized chemical gas equipment from a terrorist field hospital in the western port city of Latakia. 

ISIS and/or other terrorist networks in Syria had been planning to carry out a massive chemical attacks in order to blame the Syrian government.
