White House: Assad regime ‘preparing chemical weapons attack’

In a statement, the White House said it had detected “potential preparations” similar to those made before a chemical attack on a rebel-held town earlier this year, which killed at least 80 people.
It warned the use of chemical weapons “would likely result in mass murder of civilians, including innocent children”, adding that Assad and his military would “pay a heavy price”.
The White House did not provide evidence to back up the claim.
Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the UN, tweeted that any further chemical attacks “will be blamed on Assad, but also on Russia & Iran who support him killing his own people”
