A former CIA officer Ray McGovern revealed that U.S. President Donald Trump has lied about Bashar al Assad’s chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun of Idlib province.
McGovern told that Trump intended to divert public attention from internal problems in the U.S. to another country when he ordered the strike on Shayrat airbase in Homs without any logical reasons.
He also said that Trump’s popularity rate in the US is at the lowest.
On April 4, a chemical weapons incident in Syria’s Idlib province claimed the lives of some 80 people and inflicted harm on an additional 200 civilians.
59 Tomahawk cruise missiles were launched on April 7 at Shayrat military airfield in Southeast of Homs city killing and wounding several civilians.
