Theresa May 'orders submarines to Syria as Britain prepares to strike'

Theresa May 'orders submarines to Syria as Britain prepares to strike'”

The World Health Organization said about 500 patients showed signs of exposure to toxic chemicals following the Douma attack. It's armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles, the weapon of choice in a USA attack one year ago on an airfield in Syria following an alleged sarin gas attack on civilians.

More than 350,000 people have been killed in Syria's conflict since it started in 2011 with the brutal repression of anti-government protests.

"They have threatened us a thousand times".

Israel's Haaretz newspaper speculated that the claim was an indication that Syria's ruling Assad regime was revealing new capabilities.

"The United States is again trying to mislead the worldwide community and is making yet one more step toward confrontation", Nebenzia told the 15-member Security Council. This media house does not correct any spelling or grammatical error within press releases and commentaries.

One woman who refused to be identified because of fear for her security described herself as "trembling" and said she stocked up on food and is considering not sending her kids to school.

"They usually don't like to declare what they're going to do and how they're going to do it beforehand", said Ashraf.

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

"Also possible attacks with fighter jets should be considered as the USA has huge airbases in the Gulf countries", he added.

Seven Iranian military personnel were killed in Sunday's air strike on a Syrian air base, Tasnim news agency said, nearly double the number originally reported.

At the same meeting she asked if Russian Federation had become a tool of Iran or the Syrian government, since their aircraft had carried out a massive amount of bombings on rebel positions. May's spokesman confirmed that the meeting will focus on Syria.

Despite the president's rhetoric, it's still not exactly clear what Trump's next move will be, but after reports of a retaliatory strike from US ally Israel on Syria surfaced this week, the prospect of American military involvement began to grow with each presidential tweet.

Maria Zakharova, a spokeswoman for Russia's foreign ministry, responded to Trump's tweet Wednesday, saying any missiles launched in retaliation should target terrorists, not the Syrian government.

France said it would consider a response with the United States and Britain. Lieutenant-General Viktor Poznikhir of the General Staff of the Russian armed forces said Russian military police will deploy to Douma today to allegedly protect the town.

"We are not surprised by such a reckless escalation from a regime like the United States which has fostered and continues to foster terrorism in Syria", a foreign ministry official said, according to state news agency SANA.

Syria's Foreign Ministry said Wednesday that his threats are "reckless" and endanger global peace and security.

That prompted Mr Trump to tweet: "Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

The UK is gearing up to take military action against Syria - and it could come as soon as Thursday.

The "rapid alert" about airspace spanning from Cyprus to Syria alerted airlines of the possibility of air-to-ground or cruise missile strikes and of possible disruptions to radio navigation equipment.
