    a chemical weapons attacks ?

    Hi everybody!

    The following extract from bbc.co.uk grabbed my attenton. I wonder if the use of "a" before the plural "weapons attacks" is correct.

    US President Barack Obama has said the US has concluded that the Syrian government carried out a chemical weapons attacks near Damascus.

    BBC News - President Barack Obama: 'No decision yet' on Syria

    Thanks.
