Chief Pentagon Spokesperson Dana White and Joint Staff Director Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie held a briefing with reporters at the Pentagon. Ms. White acknowledged there had been no reports of civilian casualties from the recent allied airstrikes in Syria. In addition, she added, “We have seen no indication the Assad regime is prepared to launch another chemical weapons attack; however, we remain vigilant.” Lieutenant General McKenzie addressed the Syrian government’s alleged use of chemical weapons saying, “They do retain a residual capability.
