Assad does not have chemical weapons, but now the US is ready to return them to Syria, use them and then . The chemicals have already been delivered to rebel fighters in Idlib in order to stage the chemical attack.  White Helmets are planning the provocation.

Security Council resolution that would have created a new inquiry to ascertain responsibility for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.
