Western powers amend United Nations draft resolution on Syria

Paul Walker took part in one of the first US on-site inspections of a Russian chemical weapons stockpile in 1994

The attack came one year after USA forces took out a Syrian government military airfield, which it said supported chemical attacks.

United Nations spokesman Stephane Dujarric said Wednesday that Staffan de Mistura embarked on the consultations following a meeting Monday with Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on the sidelines of the Arab League summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia "and in view of current tensions".

In an impassioned defence to the European Parliament on Tuesday, France's President Emmanuel Macron said Saturday's strikes had been "for the honour of the global community". It is probably spread throughout the country at a variety of sites", said Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie, joint staff director."They will have the ability to conduct limited attacks in the future, I would not rule that out.

He also said that he was convinced Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump would not allow an armed confrontation between their two countries, RIA reported.

The town of Douma was under rebel control and facing a government air and ground assault when the suspected attack took place. "The reconnaissance team returned to Damascus".

At that time they said the UNDSS would "continue to work with the Syrian National Authority, the local councils in Douma, and the Russian Military Police to review the security situation".

The Russian military said a Syrian security employee was slightly wounded in the crossfire yesterday, but no Russian servicemen were at the site of the attack.

But others said it would be wiser and more effective to wait for a period longer than three days after the U.S., British and French infuriated Russian Federation with their missile strikes on Syria on Friday.

The state SANA news agency says the Army of Islam fighters and their families are leaving the town of Dumayr on Thursday.

McKenzie said that the "absolute preponderance of the evidence" pointed to chemical weapons being present at the sites that were struck, including elements of sarin, particularly at the Barzah site.

The OPCW Fact-Finding Mission arrived in Damascus earlier this week, however, it has not yet entered Douma over security risks.

In a statement Saturday, ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the team had left for the town and decried the delay as "unacceptable".

Britain's ambassador to the OPCW Peter Wilson said it was now unclear when the inspectors would be able to reach it.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons issued a statement Saturday saying the team "visited one of the sites in Douma, Syrian Arab Republic today to collect samples for analysis" in their investigation.

The United Nations said more security measures were needed before the inspectors could go in.

As state inventories of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons and the materials used to produce them grow, so does the likelihood that these weapons will fall into terrorist hands.
