Suspected chemical attack: worldwide monitor to send fact-finding team to Syria

Suspected chemical attack: worldwide monitor to send fact-finding team to Syria”

Last week, Trump advocated pulling US troops out of the country altogether, a drastic move strongly opposed by top military officials.

The stakes are higher for any new USA military action, with Trump explicitly mentioning Iran and Russian Federation in connection with the weekend attack.

The US leader met with his cabinet and then dined with top generals, telling reporters "we have a lot of options militarily and we'll be letting you know pretty soon ... probably after the fact".

If it sounded like Haley's mind was made up, she was only echoing the signals from Trump's White House.

The remark came a day after Israeli war jets allegedly attacked the T-4 military air base in Homs, killing 14 people.

Haley has called for a vote on Tuesday on a draft resolution to set up a new inquiry into the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

Iran's foreign minister says fresh claims of a chemical attack by the Syrian government and threats of a military response to the alleged incident are yet another attempt by the U.S. and its allies to boost the morale of terror groups, which are taking heavy blows on the battlefield in the Arab state.

The Syrian government and the Kremlin have denied involvement in the attack.

Officials in Washington were seeking to verify early reports by rescuers and others that the Assad government was culpable.

Meanwhile, James Mattis, US defence secretary, did not rule out any military action against the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The Pentagon said it wasn't the US.

The Syrian government and its backer Russian Federation deny that chemical weapons were used. "The worldwide community must not let this happen". After becoming critically ill near his home in the south of England last month, ex-Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal is still in hospital and United Kingdom investigators have determined that he was poisoned with a Soviet-developed nerve agent. They include sea-launched cruise missiles aboard ships within range of Syria.

A group of detainees arrived in Damascus overnight Monday to Tuesday after being freed by Jaish al-Islam, state news agency SANA said.

Meanwhile, Theresa May, the British prime minister, said that the Syrian government "and its backers, including Russian Federation, must be held to account" if it is found to be responsible for dropping chemical weapons on Douma residents.

As U.S. officials consider whether and how to respond, they are looking at what type of chemical agent was used.

"It was an atrocious attack, it was awful, 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.

The OPCW team will travel to Douma in Syria to investigate whether a chemical attack took place. The latest attack comes as Trump deliberates the future of the American military in Syria. He wrote on Twitter that "President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible" for their support of, in his words, "Animal Assad". Big price to pay. Open area immediately for medical help and verification. Another humanitarian disaster for no reason whatsoever. These are terrible photos from the alleged attack. So Assad is at it again.
