Global chemical weapons experts in Turkey to investigate Assad's attack
Global chemical weapons experts in Turkey to investigate Assad's attack
16 Abril, 2017, 10:35
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad called the alleged chemical attacks a "100 percent fabrication" in a tweet on Thursday.
The toxic gas attack on April 4, which killed scores of people including children, prompted a US cruise missile strike on a Syrian air base and widened a rift between the United States and Russian Federation, a close ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in his conflict with rebels and militants fighting to oust him.
The United States responded to the chemical attack by firing 59 cruise missiles at a Syrian regime air base.
The U.S. blamed the Syrian government for launching the attack, but Russian Federation claimed that the victims were killed by toxic agents released from a rebel chemical arsenal hit by Syrian warplanes.
"They are Al-Qaeda. They are Al-Nusra Front who shaved their beards, wore white hats, and appeared as humanitarian heroes, which is not the case".
"Iran's efforts to play the victim in 2017 about chemical warfare does not mesh with its track record of supporting Assad in his scorched earth chemical warfare against Syrian civilians", Weinthal noted. The U.S. says it has images proving the bomb left a crater in a road rather than hitting a building.
Prime Minister Theresa May says she believes it is "highly likely" Mr Assad's forces were behind the deaths, adding that "it is only the regime that has the capability to make such an attack".
Russian President Vladimir Putin has gone so far as to suggest the chemical attack was carried out by rebel groups as a way of framing the Assad regime and drawing the USA deeper into the conflict. United Nations weapons inspectors returned "overwhelming and indisputable" evidence of the use of nerve gas, although their mandate did not include assigning blame for the attack.

Tillerson: Assad used chemical weapons at least 50 times
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says relations between Moscow and Washington are "at a low point" and marked by serious distrust. Sec. of State Tillerson did not immediately address any of the contentions made by Lavrov, as the two moved on to other matters.
"The strike was requested by the partnered forces, who had identified the target location as a Daesh fighting position", it said in a statement. It is our responsibility to uphold the strict prohibition of chemical weapons.
Lavrov said the US strike on the Syrian base has undermined peace efforts in Syria and reflected Washington's focus on ousting Syrian President Bashar Assad's government.
It was the first direct U.S. military action against Assad's forces since the start of Syria's civil war six years ago and led to a quick downward spiral in ties between Washington and Moscow.
The SDF, with the help of air and ground support from the USA -led coalition, has surrounded Tabqa. China opted to abstain, a move Trump praised. On Thursday, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said the conflict in Syria needs to be addressed through a political settlement, calling it the "only reliable and right way" to handle the country's civil war. The U.S. has argued that its evidence shows otherwise. "It is crucial for global peace and security", the pair argue.
