Anyone have a problem with Assad raining Scuds down on al Nusra Front fighters?
Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces resumed the firing Scud missiles against rebels in the country, The New York Times, citing US officials reported Thursday.
“We’ve been clear that we have seen the regime in Syria use Scud missiles against its own people, and that continues,” theTimes quoted a senior State Department official as saying.
According to the report, US officials do not believe the missiles were armed with chemical weapons.
The Times said that one of the Scud attacks took place on Thursday near Maara, a town north of Aleppo near the Turkish border.
The Times also quoted a US Defense Department official as saying that “We know they’ve been firing Scuds and continue to fire them.”
