  • Suspected Chemical Attack in Syria: What We Know and Don't Know

Trump's national security team huddled at the White House on Wednesday to discuss the response to Syria. "Could be very soon or not so soon at all!", the President tweeted.

Trump had also said last week that Putin bore responsibility for the "atrocity" in Douma because of his support for the Syrian government.

"It is highly likely we will see an attack that is bigger than before and more wide-ranging in terms of the targeting - perhaps including palaces and other homes". Earlier, Russian officials said some missiles were intercepted by the Soviet-made antimissile batteries used by Syrian forces. He has pressed his aides and U.S. allies to develop a more muscular response to the weekend chemical attack after strikes a year ago did little to prevent the Syrian regime from continuing their assault on civilians.

"We will need to take decisions in due course, when we judge it most useful and effective", Macron told broadcaster TF1.

Today Prime Minister Theresa May summoned ministers back from the Easter recess for an emergency Cabinet war meeting at No10.

Stepping up the pressure on Syria's president, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley indicated the sanctions to be announced Monday would be aimed at sending a message to Russian Federation, which she said has blocked six attempts by the U.N. Security Council to make it easier to investigate the use of chemical weapons.

Dana W. White, the chief Pentagon spokeswoman, said to her knowledge no one in the Defence Department communicated with Moscow in advance, other than the acknowledged use of a military-to-military hotline that has routinely helped minimise the risk of US-Russian collisions or confrontations in Syrian airspace.

Defense Secretary James Mattis said Wednesday that the USA and its allies are mulling how to respond to the attack.

"Tonight I ask all Americans to say a prayer for our noble warriors and our allies as they carry out their missions", he said.

The NATO alliance gave its full backing; NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said the attack was about ensuring that chemical weapons can not be used with impunity.

Asked about possible U.S. strikes on Syria, President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that "it's necessary to avoid any steps that may fuel tensions in Syria".

At stake is the potential for confrontation, if not outright conflict, between the USA and Russian Federation, former Cold War foes whose relations have deteriorated in recent years over Moscow's intervention in Ukraine, its interference in the 2016 US presidential election and, most recently, its support for Syrian President Bashar Assad.

"They are the guarantors of law and order in the town", the ministry was quoted as saying. France is already involved in the US -led coalition created in 2014 to fight the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq.

Russian Federation also said it would deploy military police to Douma on Thursday and that the situation there had stabilised.

That the President of the United States have not yet agreed with the allies, according to sources from CNN.

The U.S., France and Britain have been in extensive consultations about launching a military strike as early as the end of this week, U.S. officials have said.

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

The same officials say Syria has continued to produce or procure chlorine, which is also has industrial and agricultural uses.

Assad has denied his regime was responsible for the attack in Douma and Russian Federation has claimed the incident was fabricated by rebels. But instead of putting US muscle behind that proposition, Obama deflected Syria's growing upheaval, over and over, to the UN. A US Navy guided-missile destroyer, the USS Donald Cook, is in the Mediterranean.

Jennifer Cafarella, a Syria analyst for the Washington-based Institute for the Study of War, told AFP that one potential target would be Dumayr military airport northeast of Damascus, from where regime aircraft used in Saturday's attack may have launched. Or will they be extended strikes that serve the broader objective of undermining the regime's military capabilities?
