U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday that the control of chemical weapons in Syria was limited to President Bashar al-Assad, his brother Maher al-Assad and an unnamed general.
“The chemical weapons in Syria … are controlled in very tight manner by the Assad regime. It is Bashar al-Assad, Maher al-Assad, his brother, and a general who are the three people who have control over the movement and use of chemical weapons,” Kerry told a news briefing in London.
Al Assad’s brother , Maher is the commander of Syria’s Republican Guard and an elite armoured division.
