WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The White House believes no Syrian opposition group had capabilities to fabricate massive amount of information about use of chemical weapons in the country by its government, a senior administration official told reporters on Saturday.
“It is unlikely that any opposition group could have a capability to fabricate the large volume of information that is available publicly,” the official said.
The official added the United States will strike again if the recent respond does not succeed.

Earlier in the day, the United Kingdom, the United States and France launched strikes at Syria over reports of a chemical attack in the city of Douma. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the three countries fired over 100 cruise as well as air-to-surface missiles.
Damascus has rejected all the allegations, noting that all chemical stockpiles were destroyed, which was confirmed by the OPCW. No evidence of Damascus’ involvement in the reported chemical incident was presented, with a probe due to start on April 14.
