US envoy says they have ‘credible evidence’ that Syrian troops are preparing to use chemical weapons in Idlib
2018-09-08
[AlMasdar] The US envoy for Syria stated on Thursday that the Syrian government forces preparing to use chemical weapons in the Idlib province.

"I am very sure that we have very, very good grounds to be making these warnings," said Jim Jeffrey, who was named on Aug. 17 as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s special adviser on Syria overseeing talks on a political transition in that country.

According to the Rooters news agency, the US has sufficient evidence to believe that a chemical weapons provocation will be carried out by the Syrian government forces.

"Any offensive is to us objectionable as a reckless escalation," Jeffrey told news hounds.

"There is lots of evidence that chemical weapons are being prepared," he added.

Jeffrey’s comments come just days after the Russian Foreign Ministry accused the government of the United Kingdom of preparing to frame the Syrian troops of using chemical weapons.
