Any chemical weapons attack on Syria's last rebel stronghold would lead to "consequences" for the regime in Damascus, French foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian warned in Beijing Thursday.The Assad regime has twice been targeted by U.S. air and missile strikes after previous alleged chemical attacks, and U.S. officials have in recent days said additional action would follow if Assad uses the banned weapons in rebel-held Idlib.The U.S. launched a missile strike on a Syrian air base in April 2017 after an alleged chemical attack in Idlib, while a second U.S.-led strike, supported by the British and French militaries, took place in April this year.
