Kerry: Netanyahu Can't Confirm Syria WMD Allegations Made by Israel Military Intel Chief

Secretary of State says he doesn't know what the facts are yet


Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu could not confirm comments by the Israeli military's top intelligence analyst that Syrian government forces had used chemical weapons, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday.

"I talked to Prime Minister Netanyahu this morning. I think it is fair for me to say that he was not in a position to confirm that in the conversation that I had," Kerry told a news conference at NATO headquarters in Brussels. "I don't know yet what the facts are."
