The Obama administration said Sunday there is “very little doubt” that the regime of Syrian President Bassar al-Assad used chemical weapons in an attack on civilians last week, killing hundreds of people.
A government source, who insisted on anonymity, said that American intelligence officers reported to the White House on “the reported number of victims, reported symptoms of those who were killed or injured, and witness accounts.”
The official Syria media announced Sunday afternoon that authorities will allow United Nations officials to inspect the area of the chemical attack, but if details are ironed out, evidence of the attack likely will have disappeared by the time the officials arrive.Jewish Press News Briefs
