An international inspection mission to Syria looked in question Tuesday after Western powers which accused Damascus of using chemical weapons warned that evidence had likely been removed.The United States, France and Britain conducted an unprecedented missile attack Saturday on the Syrian regime that Paris described as a matter of honor but admitted had solved nothing.The punitive strikes were launched before a fact-finding team was able to enter Douma, where the alleged April 7 chemical attack happened, and begin its field work.In an impassioned defense to the European Parliament Tuesday, France's President Emmanuel Macron admitted that Saturday's strikes had been a more political than military decision.Later Tuesday, however, SANA retracted the report, stressing there had been "no external attack" on Syria.
