Global community needs to respond after Syria attack, agrees May

The US President has threatened a "forceful" response to the alleged chemical attack.

President Trump canceled a highly-anticipated trip to South America Tuesday; remaining in Washington, DC to oversee his administration's "response" to Saturday's deadly chemical weapons attack near the Syrian capital.

"From what we hear now, I am afraid they are looking for a military option, which is very, very unsafe", Nebenzia said.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that as of Monday night, troops have been on a 72-hour alert and are fortifying their positions.

Russian Federation and the Syrian government categorically denied that any such attack took place.

Israeli officials have not issued any response to reports of the strike, but its warplanes hit the same facility in February, after Israel said an Iranian drone had infiltrated its airspace.

The Donald Cook and the Porter are likely loaded with roughly two dozen Tomahawk cruise missiles each.

Both Syria and its main backer, Russia, have denied responsibility and have claimed the reports were fabricated to justify a USA attack on Syria.

"The politics of double standards have hit rock bottom".

Later in the day, a UN diplomatic source told Sputnik that there will be two documents for the vote - rival resolutions on the establishment of new United Nations Independent Mechanism of Investigation (UNIMI), another one set for the vote by Russian Federation. Russian military police have since entered parts of the town.

An operation by the Syrian military into the militant-held areas in Eastern Ghouta, a suburb of Damascus, and the fierce fighting there with the militants have left around 140,000 people homeless, the United Nations said.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said Tuesday he was outraged by the reported attack, and that the use of chemical weapons would be a violation of global law.

If Trump really intends to abandon Syria, he should be prepared not to flinch at chemical attacks and other war crimes.

Trump planned two meetings with senior national security aides Monday on Syria, in addition to a previously scheduled late-afternoon White House conference with leaders of USA military commands around the world.

More than 40 people were killed in an alleged chemical attack in Douma on Saturday, believed to have been carried out by Assad, who has denied the allegations.

But Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov warned that "making any deductions is wrong and dangerous", suggesting that rebels could have staged the attack themselves to pin the blame on Damascus.

Speaking with media in Moscow, the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that we can not blindly believe the results until experts take a closer look.

Iran yesterday said the number of its soldiers killed in an air strike on a Syrian regime air base this week has risen to seven and that it would not go unanswered.

France, the United States and their allies are considering a coordinated military response after accusing the Russia-backed Syrian government of being behind the attack.
