The United States and Turkey have said they are following up on renewed accusations that the Syrian regime continues to use chemical weapons against civilians.The move followed Western threats of military action against the regime after the Aug. 21 Ghouta chemical attack that killed hundreds – blamed on the regime by the opposition and its allies, and on the rebels by the regime."There have been at least four such attacks in recent months, involving high doses of chlorine and pesticides," said Sinan Hatehet, director of the Coalition's media office.He added that although the attacks only killed around 15 people, the chemicals were primarily being used as a psychological weapon. The regime categorically denies carrying out any chemical weapons attacks, and accuses the rebels of having done so, in Khan al-Asal and in Ghouta.Israel Radio Monday quoted defense officials as saying that two regime attacks in late March to the east of Damascus had used "neutralizing chemical weapons".
