US Action Would 'inflame The Middle East,' Syria Warns As White House Weighs Options

by Wochit 0:59 mins

Syria warned the United States against any military action over a suspected chemical weapons attack in its civil war as Washington and its allies said they were weighing a "serious response." A senior US administration official says there is "very little doubt" that a chemical weapon was used by the Syrian regime against civilians in an incident that killed at least a hundred people last week. The White House says if chemical weapons were used, the act will not go unpunished. Abu Mohammed Al-Golani, the leader of an al-Qaida-linked Syrian rebel group, has vowed to target Shiite Muslim villages to avenge a deadly alleged chemical weapons attack in Damascus. President Bashar Assad's regime is dominated by the Alawite minority, an offshoot of Shiite Islam.
