Syria is making new chemical weapons despite 2013 deal

Syrian opposition urges UN take action on Idlib attack

AFP news agency also reported senior officials as saying the U.S. was not ruling out military force in response to future chemical weapons attacks by the Syrian government.

Reports of the latest chemical weapons attack comes days after the Trump administration accused Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad's government of producing and using "new kinds of weapons" to deliver deadly chemicals, despite committing to abolish its chemical weapons program in 2013. The ministry said in a statement on Saturday that the USA remarks about the use of chemical weapons in the Eastern Ghouta region of the east of the capital Damascus are "false claims", Xinhua news agency reported.

Syria denies it has used illegal chemicals.

Unconfirmed intel has recently reported to the Pentagon that Syrian forces have weaponized chlorine and sarin gas.
