Syrian gov't flag raised in Douma, site of alleged chemical attack

Syrians in North Jersey divided over threats of military response to chemical attack

Syria's military has repositioned some air assets to avoid fallout from possible missile strikes, USA officials told Reuters on Wednesday. Regime-ally Russian Federation has also called the reports "provocations" and "fake news".

The prime minister said yesterday that the Syrian regime seemed to have been behind a chemical attack on civilians, and that such attacks "cannot go unchallenged".

"The situation is tense", Peskov said, adding that Russian Federation was calling for an "unprejudiced and objective investigation before making judgments" on the suspected use of chemical weapons.

In a later tweet, Mr Trump claimed that the "bad blood" with Russian Federation was due to the Special Counsel's Russian Federation investigation into meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.

The United Nations has yet to verify reports of the attack, and the only evidence so far provided is photos and reports from the controversial 'White Helmets' group.

She faces pressure to secure support from the Commons, which is now in recess for Easter, for involving Britain in air strikes but has the power to take the decision without the backing of MPs.

Seven vehicles with Russian flags and military police markings stood near the crossing, as well as Syrian police and two full buses drove through towards an assembly point before the convoy would head north, a Reuters witness said.

However, on Tuesday night Russia's ambassador to Lebanon said any USA missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launch sites targeted.

Donald Trump has issued a stark warning to Russian Federation and Syria to "get ready" for a missile attack on the Assad regime.

Asab Mohammed, the other Indian in fray, was eliminated after he shot 43 out of 50 in the finals of the men's double trap. Shreyasi was on the second position while Varsha was on the third position after three rounds.

The WHO condemned the incident and said over 500 people from Douma had been treated for symptoms of gas poisoning.

"We don't comment on submarine movements", a spokesman said.

After Trump's tweet, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights - a British-based war monitor with a network of sources on the ground - reported that pro-government forces were emptying main airports and military air bases. There is no reason for this. Russian Federation needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together. "Stop the arms race?" he wrote.

Russia's ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkinhad, warned that the federation's military will shoot down United States rockets and "even the sources that launched the missiles".

However, Gardner doesn't believe strong military action in Syria is the best foreign policy position for the Trump Administration.

Maria Zakharova, a spokeswoman for Russia's foreign ministry, responded to Trump's tweet Wednesday, saying any missiles launched in retaliation should target terrorists, not the Syrian government. Trump blamed President Obama for being careless, stating that when it comes to war, the element of surprise is everything.

"The President has a number of options at his disposal and all of those options remain on the table".

The Syrian government itself has yet to officially announce it has fully retaken Douma, which was the last part of the erstwhile rebel enclave on the eastern edge of Damascus to escape its control.
