(CNN) The U.N. report investigating allegations of chemical weapons use in Syria has been released and sent to member states, a spokesman for U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Monday.

“Chemical weapons have been used” in the Syria conflict, the U.N. inspectors’ report says. “In particular, the environmental, chemical and medical samples, we have collected, provide clear and convincing evidence that surface-to-surface rockets containing the nerve agent sarin were used in Ein Tarma, Moadamiyah and Zamalka in the Ghouta area of Damascus.”

The U.N. report due Monday says the perpetrators of last month’s chemical weapons attack in Syria had up to 350 liters of sarin gas.

It will say surface-to-surface missiles were used and will give the trajectory of the missiles, the source said.
