Snipers shot at United Nations experts Monday forcing them to pull back from an attempt to investigate a chemical weapons attack near Damascus, a spokesman said.

No injuries were reported when the first vehicle in a UN convoy was hit as it headed for Ghouta, east of the Syrian capital, but the team had to head back toward their base, said UN spokesman Martin Nesirky.

“The first vehicle of the chemical weapons investigation team was deliberately shot at multiple times by unidentified snipers in the buffer zone area,” Nesirky said.

“As the car was no longer serviceable, the team returned safely back to the government checkpoint,” he added.

“The team will return to the area after replacing the vehicle.”

The UN spokesman gave no other details on the venue of the sniper attack or from where the shooting came from.
