Syrian chemical weapons activity has been seen at Assad regime base used for previous attacks, say PentagonA warning from the administration of President Donald Trump that Syria’s government will “pay a heavy price” for any future chemical weapons attacks came after it observed similar activities on a base that had allegedly been used previously for sarin gas attacks in April. According to the Pentagon, the activity indicates that the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is actively pursuing preparations at Shayrat airfield to use such weapons in its ongoing civil war that has torn the country apart. The US contends that the Assad regime used chemical weapons two months ago in an attack launched from Shayrat that killed dozens of civilians, prompting swift retribution from American military forces that fired 60 cruise missiles at the base.
