(Worthy News)-- Syrian President Bashar Assad's army has used chemical weapons at least 29 times in the past year, according to testimony delivered Wednesday before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, CBN reported.
The action has been documented by congressional investigators, and is a clear crossing of President Barack Obama's "red line" of three years ago when he said Assad must be held accountable for his use of chemical weapons against civilians.
Last year, the administration and the United Nations forged a deal with the Assad regime to remove Syria's chemical wepons stockpile, which Secretary of State John Kerry hailed as a "success." --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/world/2015/June/Assad-Uses-Chem-Weapons-as-Syria-Battles-Spread/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
