Assad Plans Chemical Weapons Attack In Syria
U.S. officials say there’s mounting evidence Bashar al-Assad has given the green light for his military to use chlorine gas in Idlib province; Benjamin Hall reports.
Reports of Assad’s approval comes about a week after Trump warned the strongman and his allies not to “recklessly attack” the province. Trump called any gas attack a potential “grave humanitarian mistake.”
President Bashar al-Assad of Syria must not recklessly attack Idlib Province. The Russians and Iranians would be making a grave humanitarian mistake to take part in this potential human tragedy. Hundreds of thousands of people could be killed. Don’t let that happen!
