After its success during NCT Europe 2017, the workshop on “Non-conventional warfare in Syria” will come to Washington DC. The workshop will offer the audience the opportunity to discuss the Syrian civil war and the use of chemical weapons with experts that have worked in the field and have hands-on experience in the Syrian conflict, as well as the lesson learned for USA. Among others, Raed Saleh, Chief of the Syrian White Helmets, will share his experience in Syrian Civil Defense and Dr. Houssam Alnahhas, nominated by the National Coalition of Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces, will share his expertise in developing medical preparedness and response protocols in case of chemical attacks. The open and roundtable format of this workshop stimulates interactive knowledge sharing within a trusted environment.
