THE Assad Government has repeatedly used chemical weapons to consolidate its power in Syria, according to new evidence that has “decimated” the Russian “cover story” for the deadly April 4 attack on Khan Sheikhoun.
The international community was shocked last month when it was revealed that Syria had deployed a nerve agent against its own citizens in the rebel-held Idlib province town, killing 92 people, including at least 30 children.

But new evidence released on Monday by Human Rights Watch shows that Bashar al-Assad’s government used nerve agents on three other occasions leading up to the April atrocity, which show “widespread and systematic attacks on civilians [that] could constitute crimes against humanity”.
Russia, which supports the Assad regime, justified the Khan Sheikhoun attack by saying that a Syrian bomb had inadvertently hit a rebel cache of nerve gases or pesticides.
But Human Rights Watch executive director Ken Roth says new evidence renders that explanation “utterly implausible”.
