President Shimon Peres on Tuesday weighed into the ongoing debate on Syria's chemical weapons, saying he believed that the US would not attack the Assad regime if it acted in good faith.

"The central issue now is credibility," Peres said during a visit to the Plasson factory at Kibbutz Ma'agan Michael. "If Syria behaves with credibility and takes genuine steps to remove and destroy its chemical weapons, then the United States will not attack."
