Chemical weapons watchdog preparing team to visit Syria, investigate Eastern Ghouta attack

Chemical weapons watchdog preparing team to visit Syria, investigate Eastern Ghouta attack”

"It was an atrocious attack, it was terrible, you don't see things like that - as bad as the news is round the world - you just don't see those images", Trump said.

Israel's military did not comment on the report. "Probably after the fact", Trump said.

Trump also discussed the incident with French President Emmanuel Macron late on Monday, and both leaders expressed a desire for a "firm response".

President Donald Trump says the US has many military options as it decides how to respond to an apparent poison gas attack in central Syria that killed more than 40 people. "He'll pay a price".

Syria and its ally Russian Federation have dismissed allegations that the attack was carried out by Syrian forces as "fabrications" and have warned against using them to justify military action.

U.S. envoy Nikki Haley said Russian Federation - a Syrian military backer - had the "blood of Syrian children" on its hands and branded President Assad a "monster".

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria", the USA president tweeted.

The United States fired missiles on a Syrian air base a year ago in response to the killing of dozens of civilians in a sarin gas attack in an opposition-held town.

The attack left at least 49 people dead and caused breathing difficulties for more than 500 others.

Syrian government forces had launched an air and ground assault on Douma, the last town held by rebels in eastern Ghouta, on Friday.

Moscow's threat to shoot down USA missiles came from the Russian ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin, who said he was referring to a statement by President Vladimir Putin and the Russian armed forces chief of staff. It said the two leaders had agreed, "The Assad regime must be held accountable for its continued human rights abuses", and pledged to "coordinate a strong, joint response".

"The team is preparing to deploy to Syria shortly", it said in a statementtheir organisation says on Tuesday. The UK and several other states blamed Moscow, and alleged Russian interference in the 2016 USA election.

He said the "hawkish rhetoric" in the Council and threats to use force had gone beyond what had prevailed during the Cold War. He said an escalation of the conflict could have "unimaginable consequences". "Whenever we propose anything meaningful on Syria, Russia vetoes it". "I think that it is outrageous to say that the president of the United States green-lit something as atrocious as the actions that have taken place over the last several days", she said.

Russian Federation killed off a previous UN-led probe in November by vetoing the renewal of its mandate. They see our resolve breaking, they see our determination to stay in Syria waning and it's no accident they used chemical weapons. Haley offered another such resolution on April 9 and called for a council vote on April 10.

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Monday accused Russian Federation of falling short on its obligations to ensure that Syria abandoned its chemical weapons capabilities.

"We. are working urgently with our allies to asses what has happened".

"The Russian side stressed the unacceptability of provocation and speculation on this matter", the Kremlin added.

Trump had on Monday warned of a quick, forceful response once responsibility for the attack was established.
