The US Defence Secretary James Mattis has said there can be "no doubt" that Syria retains chemical weapons.

Axar.az reports that Gen Mattis also said the Syrian government had moved its warplanes in recent days, speaking during a visit to Israel.

He said Syria would be "ill-advised" to try to use chemical weapons again, after the alleged attack on 4 April which killed more than 80 people.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad says the attack claims are 100% fabricated.
The US responded to the Khan Sheikhoun attack by launching air strikes on a Syrian military airfield.

General Mattis accused the Syrian government of violating a 2013 agreement to hand over its chemical weapons to the international community.

"There can be no doubt in the international community's mind that Syria has retained chemical weapons in violation of its agreement and its statement that it had removed them all," he said.
