Pentagon says Syria not used chemical weapons since US strike in April
Syrian government forces have not used chemical weapons since April, when the United States carried out a missile attack on a Syrian military airbase near the city of Homs, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford said on Sunday, Sputnik reports.
"I like to think that [Syrian President Bashar] Assad has received the message loud and clear that the use of chemical weapons in unacceptable and that there will be consequences for the use of chemical weapons against his own people. Time will tell. He hasn’t used them since that day," Dunford said at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado.
