Following airstrikes, UN Secretary General calls for restraint in Syria

US allies and Russia prepare for Syria confrontation

Trump Tweets: 'They Will be Coming, Nice and New and Smart', US Warns Russia

Asked if he was referring to a war between the United States and Russian Federation, he told reporters: "We can not exclude any possibilities unfortunately because we saw messages that are coming from Washington".

Russian lawmakers have warned the United States that Moscow would view an airstrike on Syria as a war crime and that it could trigger a direct U.S-Russian military clash.

That's despite the World Health Organisation stating an estimated 500 people presented at medical facilities with the effects of chemical weapons in the area, according to local agencies. It might also decide to combine missiles and stealth aircraft, such as the F-22 fighter jet or B2 bomber, said David Deptula, a retired Air Force lieutenant general who is dean of the Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies. And France has analyzed, yes, it has happened.

"Russia convenes an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss aggressive actions of the US and its allies", President Vladimir Putin said in a statement published on the Kremlin website.

The United States and Britain have also blamed Syrian President Bashar Assad's government.

"Until we have a more long-term strategy, until we have some idea where we're going in Syria and the Middle East, it seems unwise, to me, to start launching missiles", said Smith, D-Wash.

Earlier in Washington DC, President Trump went on to blame "Russia's failure" to eliminate Syria's chemical weapons for the recent attack in Douma and the retaliatory attack by the United States and its allies that followed. "We're making sure we have all the information to know if we do something, what will happen, how will it happen and will it hurt anyone".

"We would still welcome cooperation with Russian Federation that will do the right thing and join the rest of the world in condemning the Assad regime for its horrific actions and ensuring they can not happen again", Huntsman said.

He then said the US would accuse the Syrian government of using chemical weapons and Russian Federation supporting it.

Twelve injured passengers were rushed to the hospital and are in critical condition. "My first priority was to save lives". From 2005 till 2015, Himachal Pradesh witnessed in total around 29,555 road accidents across the state.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said he had spoken to Trump on Wednesday and would speak to Putin on Thursday night about the chemical attack.

At the United Nations meeting, Syrian Ambassador Bashar Jaafari warned that Syria would respond if the USA moved against his country.

Looming over the military planning are questions about how effective a punitive strike - no matter how broad - will be in deterring Assad from resuming chemical attacks. "This is not a threat".

The Russian army has continued to deny their side's latest victory came after Assad launched a chemical attack on the last rebel-held pocket of the enclave in the Damascus suburbs, instead accusing the White Helmets civil defense organization of staging the massacre. "We have weighty justification to believe. that what took place was a provocation of certain countries' intelligence services".

She said it was clear that not all chemical weapons had been destroyed in Syria in a process that began in 2013.

He did not say what the evidence was.

French President Emmanuel Macron said Thursday that France has proof that the Syrian government launched chlorine gas attacks and that France would not tolerate "regimes that think everything is permitted". Pierce said she wanted "to state categorically ... that Britain has no involvement and would never have any involvement in the use of a chemical weapon".

Monday: Nebenzia told the U.N. Security Council "there was no chemical attack" over the previous weekend.

The withdrawal plan, which still doesn't have the backing of U.S. military leaders and diplomats, entails leaving behind a smaller force to hunt down Islamic State fighters and help local forces secure areas liberated from the terrorist outfit. "This can not be tolerated".
