French foreign minister says method of 4 April chemical attack bore ‘signature of the regime’ and points to Syrian responsibility
French intelligence has concluded that forces loyal to the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, carried out a sarin nerve gas attack on 4 April in northern Syria and that Assad or members of his inner circle ordered the strike, a declassified report shows.
The chemical weapons attack on the town of Khan Sheikhun killed scores of people, according to a war monitor, Syrian opposition groups and western countries. It prompted the US to launch a cruise missile strike on a Syrian airbase, its first deliberate assault on the Assad government in the six-year-old conflict.
