„Syria’s regime has used sarin nerve gas for the first time since 2013, dropping bombs laden with the chemical agent on Isil fighters outside Damascus, according to a senior Israeli official. This use of sarin would show that Bashar al-Assad has retained the ability to gas his enemies despite an agreement that supposedly disarmed Syria of its chemical arsenal. That deal was reached after the regime used sarin and VX gas to kill as many as 1,400 people in rebel-held areas of Damascus on August 21, 2013. President Barack Obama had declared the use of chemical weapons to be a ‚red line‘ that would trigger US air strikes. Once Assad agreed to disarm, however, Mr Obama abandoned his plan for military action.“ (Der Auslandskorrespondent David Blair in der britischen Tageszeitung The Telegraph: „Assad’s forces have ‘used sarin nerve gas’ for the first time since Syria’s notorious 2013 massacre“)
