France Says to Provide Proof on Assad Regime’s Chemical Weapons Use
French intelligence services will provide proof in the coming days that Bashar al-Assad's forces used chemical weapons in an attack on April 4, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said on Wednesday.
"There is an investigation underway (by) the French intelligence services and military intelligence ... it's a question of days and we will provide proof that the regime carried out these strikes," Ayrault told LCP television.
"We have elements that will enable us to show that the regime knowingly used chemical weapons," Ayrault said.
Around 100 civilians, many of them children, were killed and more than 500 others injured in the chemical weapons attack regime forces carried out in the town of Khan Shikhoun in rural Idlib on April 4. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department + Agencies)
