UN Photo/Rick Bajornas Print 30 August 2016 The Syrian Airforce and ISIL used toxic chemicals as weapons, according to a new report issued on Tuesday by an independent, impartial, and objective Leadership Panel, mandated by the UN Security Council. The so-called Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM), led by a three-person Leadership Panel (Virginia Gamba, Adrian Neritani, Eberhard Schanze), examined nine cases of previously-documented chemical weapons use to establish who was responsible for using them. The Panel found what it described as sufficient evidence of three cases of chemical weapons use two chlorine gas attacks on civilians by the Syrian air force, and another use of sulphur-mustard gas by the terrorist group ISIL, or Daesh in Syria between 2014 and 2015. The Mechanism was mandated by Security Council resolution 2235 (2015) to identify, to the greatest extent feasible, those involved in the use of toxic chemicals as weapons in the Syrian Arab Republic. Earlier, a Fact Finding Mission (FFM) mandated by the Organisation for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) had determined that a specific incident in the Syrian conflict involved or likely involved the use of toxic chemicals as weapons. After reviewing all the information gathered, the Mechanism found no evidence that armed opposition groups had been operating helicopters at the time and location of the cases investigated. The report comes as the UN General Assembly prepares to mark, on Wednesday, 31 August, the International Day against Nuclear Tests, dedicated to coalescing global efforts towards achieving a world free of another form of weapons of mass destruction, namely: nuclear weapons. The UN News Centre asked the Head of the JIM, Virginia Gamba, to outline the scope of their investigation. Virginia Gamba: Well, we have been task-mandated by the Council, to identify perpetrators on the use of toxic chemicals in Syria, over the last two years. And we spent some time looking at this we had nine cases that we mentioned we would want to go forward with and now we have finally concluded on the nine cases.

He was 83 years old.’ align=’left’ /> Interview Highlights On meeting Mel Brooks, with whom he would later work on The Producers, Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein I was miscast in that production [of Mother Courage and Her Children] … but it was with Anne Bancroft, whose boyfriend at the time was Mel Brooks, and that made my I can’t say my day, it made my life, in a way. I met Mel backstage in Anne’s dressing room. He was wearing one of those pea coats, pea jackets that were made famous by the Merchant Marines, and I admired it and he said, “You know, they used to call this a urine jacket, but it didn’t sell.” I laughed and he laughed and after we saw each other several times he said, “Would you like to come to Fire Island and spend the weekend with Anne and me? http://madelynfordcentral.denaliinstitute.org?p=151I’d like to read the first 30 pages of this movie I’m writing called Springtime for Hitler.” I said, “I’d like that very much,” and I went there one June weekend and he read me the first 30 pages of what was later called The Producers. On auditioning for Zero Mostel, who played Max Bialystock in The Producers Mel said, “I love you, but Zero doesn’t know you, and he has the right of approval of whoever is going to play Leo Bloom, so come to the office and you’ll do a reading with him.” So I went to the office on a Thursday or Friday morning and knocked on the door and Mel opened it and I saw Zero Mostel in the background and he said, “Come on in, come on in. Gene, this is Z; Z, this is Gene.” And I put out my hand to shake hands with him, and he took my hand [and] he pulled me up to his face, and he gave me a kiss on the lips. And all my nervousness went out the window. I think he must’ve done it on purpose, because he understood actors and how I would naturally be a little nervous doing this, and I gave a very good reading, and then I got the part.
