Report: US, UK investigating another alleged Syria chemical weapons attack

The United States and Britain are investigating reports on recent chemical weapons attacks in Syria committed allegedly by the regime of President Bashar Assad, the British Times reported on Friday.


According to the report, the Assad regime used toxic industrial substances and not chemical weapon in order to avoid suspicion or an international response.


Earlier this week, an Israeli military official was quoted as saying Assad was once again using chemical weapons against rebels trying to topple him. (ynet)
