Syrian chemical attack was staged - Russian Federation

  • Russia says alleged chemical attack in Syria staged by UK

Noting that Trump extended "an olive branch" to both Russian Federation and Iran in his speech, Taleblu added that "the question for the U.S. and the coalition is how long are they prepared to sustain this", he asked.

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. Syrian media reported an estimated 130 missiles were launched against targets close to Damascus, including a scientific research center and the worldwide airport, the two facilities being civilian.

Trump's response, if and when it comes, will have taken several days to organize and thus Russian forces may have been able to put some space between themselves and likely targets.

Moscow's ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin, warned on Wednesday that any USA missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launch sites targeted.

The attack destroyed a building that includes a learning centre and laboratories, state TV said.

Officials were reportedly unable to calm him when they explained European countries expelled the same number of Russians in total as the U.S.

By Wednesday, as Russian and Syrian forces took charge of the formerly rebel-held area that was bombed, Trump was explicitly threatening on Twitter to launch more missiles.

"Not a single one of the cruise missiles entered the zone of Russian air defense systems", the Defense Ministry said.

The resolution is most likely to condemn the missile attacks on Syria carried out jointly by the United States, France and Britain on Friday. "The facility which was struck is located some distance from any known concentrations of civilian habitation, reducing yet further any such risk", the statement read. US defense officials did not confirm if any allied missiles had been shot down.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

The 31-metre drop killed the women, both 39, and their children Markis Hart , 19; Jeremiah Hart , 14; and Abigail Hart , 14. Authorities searching for a family whose SUV plunged into a Northern California river have found the body of a child.

The one-off missile strike in April 2017 targeted the airfield from which the Syrian aircraft had launched their gas attack. Neither Mattis, nor Dunford, were willing to discuss Syrian or Russian resistance to the strikes.

Syria ally Russian Federation warned Friday of "consequences" following the launch of US-led strikes against Bashar al-Assad's regime in retaliation for a suspected chemical attack. "Now Washington has used the media instead of the test tube". Thus far, Russian Federation has provided no legitimate evidence to support their claims of conspiracy, despite it gaining traction on social media.

Russian Defence Ministry said on Saturday that USA and its allies fired over 100 cruise missiles at Syria, a significant number of which were intercepted by Syrian air defences.

Even though the doomsday scenarios appear to have been averted, the past week's rhetorical clash over Syria has deepened an East-West confrontation that continues to intensify.

Trump, who unleashed a one-off United States cruise missile salvo a year ago in response to a chemical attack blamed on Assad's forces, reacted with fury and threatened a renewed intervention.

Yuri Shvytkin, a deputy chairman of the State Duma Defense Committee, said that the strikes on Syria are an ill-thought and provocative step that can lead to unpredictable consequences.

"It not only undercuts deterrence theory, it also sends a signal globally that you can use chemical weapons - just don't let them upset us", said Nicholas Heras, a fellow at the Center for a New American Security in Washington. The medics said none of the patients were hurt by chemicals. In fact, he accused the USA of having the most.

Mr Antonov said: "Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible". The U.S. military has responded at times to Assad's use of chemical weapons but at other times hasn't responded at all.

That line of thinking is particularly notable, as tensions between Russia and the United Kingdom have been particularly strained recently, as a result of an alleged nerve agent attack carried out in Salisbury, England by Russian operatives.

Lavrov spoke to reporters in Moscow on Friday.
