US House Panel Says Chemical Weapons ‘Probably’ Used in Syria

JewishPress Logo

The chairman of the U.S. House Intelligence Committee said on Tuesday that there is a “high probability to believe that chemical weapons were used: in the Syrian civil war.”

“We need that final verification, but given everything we know over the last year and a half, I would come to the conclusion that they are either positioned for use, and ready to do that, or in fact have been used,” Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Michigan) told CNN.

The Syrian regime accused rebels Tuesday of using chemical weapons, a similar charge rebels have made against forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad. Rebels previously have posted videos showing victims of alleged chemical attacks, which are prohibited by international law.

The Obama administration might be forced to intervene militarily in Syria if chemical weapons are employed in attacks.
