Ya'alon: We've seen no proof Assad used chemical weapons

Israel does not believe that Syrian President Bashar Assad has used chemical weapons against rebels or Syrian citizens, Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya'alon said on Tuesday.
"We have seen reports (on the use of chemical weapons) from the opposition," Ya'alon told Army Radio, but said as of now, "we do not have any confirmation or proof that (chemical weapons) have already been used."
Israel is following events in neighboring Syria with concern, he added.
