Global chemical weapons watchdog 'on its way to Syria'

Global chemical weapons watchdog 'on its way to Syria'”

President Trump has sent mixed messages on the US response, warning Russian Federation in a tweet Wednesday to "get ready" for USA missile strikes in Syria in retaliation for the attack.

President Donald Trump responded with a tweet Wednesday saying Russian Federation should get ready.

Syria's President, Bashar al Assad, said a possible attack on his country could trigger regional instability.

Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said on Wednesday the Pentagon was ready to provide options for a Syria strike but the USA and its allies were still "assessing the intelligence" on the suspected chemical attack. She would not seek approval from Parliament, the BBC said, despite calls from the opposition Labour Party for Parliament to be given a say.

Separately on Thursday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Berlin would not join any military strikes against Syria, but supports efforts to show the use of chemical weapons is unacceptable.

Asked about the risks of U.S. military retaliation, Mattis cited two concerns, starting with avoiding civilian casualties.

"Those two things, I'm assured, we will get an answer to today", he said of Thursday's cabinet meeting.

She then said she felt drugged and tried to load a song on the laptop which was playing music, but could not manipulate her hands. MSU students are sounding off about the latest scandal and some say student athletes are protected and victims are intimidated.

"At the highest level, the presidents of the United States and France threatened a tough reaction, with the use of force against Syria".

Russian Federation and Syria have invited OPCW experts to visit the town of Douma in order to find out what had happened there.

The president on Wednesday seemed to confirm future USA strikes in Syria when he tweeted that missiles fired at Syria "will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!'"

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday that Mr. Trump was considering "a number" of options that potentially included missile strikes.

"Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!' You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!" he added. Any missile attack that puts Russian lives at risk, Moscow has said, would result in Russia striking back at the missiles and at the planes or ships that launched them. However, there is some evidence it was sprayed from helicopters, they said.

The news comes days after Douma was the scene of a horrifying attack, in which dozens of Syrians died from suffocation.

An alleged chemical attack in Syria's rebel-held Douma over the weekend has sparked global outrage, with Washington threatening missile strikes as Moscow tries to deflect blame from its ally Bashar al-Assad.

"Our teams have been working on this all week and we will need to take decisions in due course, when we judge it most useful and effective", Macron told broadcaster TF1. We are totally predictable. As reported by the state-run Tass news agency, Yevtushenko added that Syria's official flag had now been hoisted over Douma, signaling control over Eastern Ghouta. Trump cancelled a foreign trip in order to manage a crisis that is testing his vow to stand up to Assad.

Trump added: "Our relationship with Russian Federation is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War".

The recent military victories Syrian army gained in Douma and elsewhere in Eastern Ghouta were the main reasons behind Trump's threat to attack Syria, al-Atrash said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by phone on Wednesday and urged him to do nothing to destabilize Syria.

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis says the Pentagon is ready to provide options for a strike but notes the US and its allies are still assessing intelligence on the alleged strike.

At the UN Security Council, Moscow and Washington have so far vetoed each other's motions to set up an worldwide investigation into chemical weapons use.

Douma, the Syrian city where experts believe chemical weapons were used on civilians, has fallen to the government, after the last rebel group that had been fighting Syria's regime there capitulated.
