Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces resumed firing Scud missiles against rebels in the country, The New York Times, citing US officials reported Thursday.

“We’ve been clear that we have seen the regime in Syria use Scud missiles against its own people, and that continues,” the Times quoted a senior State Department official as saying.

According to the report, US officials do not believe the missiles were armed with chemical weapons.

The Times said that one of the Scud attacks took place on Thursday near Maara, a town north of Aleppo near the Turkish border.
