The United States working with European allies has concluded that the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons against the rebels killing up to 150 people, a top US official has said.
The White House said on Thursday that the casualty data was likely incomplete and that it had no reliable, corroborated
information to suggest that the Syrian opposition in the country’s civil war had acquired chemical weapons.
“Our intelligence community assesses that the Assad regime has used chemical weapons, including the nerve agent sarin, on a small scale against the opposition multiple times in the last year,” deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes said on Thursday.
He said that the “intelligence community estimates that 100 to 150 people have died from detected chemical weapons attacks in Syria to date.”
Rhodes said in a written statement that the Syrian government’s refusal to grant access to the United Nations to investigate credible allegations of chemical weapons use had prevented a comprehensive investigation as called for by the international community.
ntrcsr7 note – Ladies and gentlemen, this is the beginning of WWIII. Isaiah 17 will happen quickly if the white house imposes a no fly zone. Russia will counter the wests moves, Iran is already heavily involved in Syria. This is only a bad thing, nothing good will come of this.
