April 4, 2017 – US Blames President Bashar al-Assad For Chemical Attack In North-West Syria

The White House said it is “confident” Bashar al-Assad’s government was behind an apparent chemical attack that killed at least 58 people in north-west Syria.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that strikes on Khan Sheikhoun by Syrian government or Russian jets had caused many people to choke.

Later, aircraft fired rockets at local clinics treating survivors, medics and activists told the BBC.

Syria’s army denied the government had used any such weapons.

White House spokesman, Sean Spicer, condemned what he called “these heinous actions by the Bashar al-Assad regime,” and said it was in the best interests of the Syrian people for President Assad to leave.

He was joined in his condemnation by the United Kingdom, United Nations and France, among others.

If confirmed, it would be one of the deadliest chemical attacks in Syria’s civil war.

The warplanes are reported to have attacked rebel-held Khan Sheikhoun, about 50km (30 miles) south of the city of Idlib, early on Tuesday, when many people were asleep.

Let’s see what will come out from the meeting that will be held today by the United Nation Security Council on this issue.
