Russian Federation to prove USA missile interceptions in Syria

US Avoided Russia's 'Red Lines' in Syrian Airstrikes, Lavrov Claims

US military strikes on Syria last week removed any moral obligation Russia had to withhold S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems from its ally Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday, according to RIA state news agency.

A team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) have been in Syria for a week but had not travelled to the city because of security fears.

"At this time, inspectors from the OPCW still don't have access to the site of the gas attack in Douma", he said.

France has said it is "very likely" that proof has disappeared, and the USA has accused the Russians and Syrians of tampering with evidence.

"The OPCW mission has as its goal establishing whether a chemical attack indeed took place and identifying the nature of the chemical agent used".

Douma is under the protection of Russia's military police, and with 12 days having passed since the attack, concerns are growing that evidence could fall prey to tampering or be otherwise compromised.

"We have geopolitical tension levels pretty high at the moment between the USA and Russian Federation".

"There is Resolution 2254 of the UN Security Council, under which Syria should be united and undivided and the political process should enable Syrians to define their fate without foreign interference", Lavrov said.

Liverpool's Salah seeks silver lining with Golden Boot
Now top on 30 goals for the season, Tottenham's Kane is just four goals behind with four games left to play. But Salah surpassed that last Saturday with four league fixtures still to play.

Earlier on Thursday, the Damascus-based Palestinian official Khaled Abdelmajid said the government was giving hard-liners two days to leave Yarmouk and Hajr al-Aswad, leaving the government with control of the two neighborhoods.

Marine Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, who joined White at a Pentagon briefing, said that Assad retained a "residual capacity" to conduct more attacks despite the success of the allied response to the barrel bombing on the town of Douma east of Damascus earlier this month.

Moscow has repeatedly called on Western states to work with investigators from the chemical weapons watchdog to determine if gas had been indeed used.

Earlier this week, their visit to Douma was delayed after their United Nations security team came under fire at the location.

The US and Britain accused the Syrian government and Russian Federation of delaying the investigation to stage a cover up.

"Russian officials have worked with the Syrian regime, we believe, to sanitize the locations of the suspected attacks and remove incriminating evidence of chemical weapons use", said Heather Nauert, spokeswoman for the State Department.

However, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Thursday that "Syrian government troops, in freeing the territory of Eastern Ghouta, found containers with chlorine, the most bad kind of chemical weapon, from Germany". The Civil Defense no longer has a presence in Douma after being evacuated to rebel-held areas of northern Syria when the government took over the town. Iraq has carried out airstrikes in Syria against the group in the past. That departure was likely to involve 1,500 fighters from the Jaish Al Islam rebel faction with 3,500 of their family members, Sana said.
