Alleged Syrian chemical attack ‘crime against humanity’: Israel

Jerusalem (AFP) – Israel on Monday accused Syria of “crimes against humanity” over an alleged chemical attack on a rebel-held town, saying President Bashar al-Assad’s regime was responsible.

“Israel strongly condemns the chemical weapons strike carried out by Syria on April 7, one year after the mass murder carried out by the regime in Khan Sheikun,” a foreign ministry statement said.

“The Syrian regime continues to perpetrate crimes against humanity in using these outlawed weapons.”
