Syrian President Bashar al-Assad

(Worthy News) - The US said it was “gravely alarmed’ by reports of chemical weapons attacks by the Syrian regime Monday, as it accused Russia of protecting Syrian President Bashar Assad from responsibility for the use of chlorine gas against civilians in recent weeks.

The State Department was responding to reports of a gas attack in the town of Saraqeb near Idlib, Sunday, where several civilians reported trouble breathing after a regime sortie.

“This attack is the sixth such reported instance in the past 30 days in Syria. We implore the international community to speak with one voice, taking every opportunity to publicly pressure the Assad regime, and its supporters, to cease its use of chemical weapons and hold those responsible accountable for these brutal attacks,” spokesperson Heather Nauert said in a statement.

1 thought on “US ‘gravely alarmed’ after fresh Syria chemical weapons attack

  1. After twice being accused and exonerated of using chemical weapons, the Pentagon thinks that 'the third time's the charm'. Both Assad and his wife are U.S. educated and upstanding people who support the Syrian people to no end.
    But the Pentagon will do and say anything for justification to keep its forces in a foreign where it is not welcome and where Syria is incapable of doing anything about it.
    Another day, another lie for the Pentagon. Oh and wasn't it the Pentagon who was funding and supplying ISIS under OBAMA! But we should believe them now ..... right?
