  • Syrians sanctioned by European Union over chemical attack

The European Union made a decision to impose sanctions against 16 soldiers and scientists to Syria, which are accused of carrying out chemical attacks in the country, is spoken in the message of the EU Council.

The EU has now imposed sanctions against a total of 255 people implicated in President Bashar al-Assad's violent crackdown against civilians. The sanctions issued by the organization now extend to 255 people who are prevented from traveling to European Union territory and whose assets have been frozen, along with 67 companies linked to Syrian President Bashar Al Assad.

Sixteen individuals suspected of involvement in Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons program were added to a European Union sanctions list Monday.

Last month, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said sarin gas had been used in an April 4 attack on the village of Khan Sheikhun in Idlib province that caused dozens of deaths.

The EU will release the names of those hit by the sanctions on Tuesday, it said. The move showed resolve "in dealing with those who are responsible for chemical weapons attacks", said Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. The Syrian leader called the incident a provocation to justify Washington's attack on the Syrian government's military airfield on April 6.

But the 28-member bloc's position on Syria is said to be in flux after France's new President Emmanuel Macron broke with the previous French government position by saying he saw no legitimate successor to Al-Assad and no longer considered his departure a pre-condition to resolving the war.

It also is under sanctions on equipment and technology that might be used for internal repression as well as on equipment and technology for the monitoring or interception of internet or telephone communications.
