Haley: Russian Hands 'Covered in the Blood of Syrian Children' After Attack

War Drums Beat For Trump To Strike Assad

The White House, Pentagon and State Department declined to comment on specific options or whether military action was likely. "Probably after the fact".

President Donald Trump said Monday he will decide on a USA response to the apparent chemical weapons attack on Syrian civilians "probably by the end of today". "Big price to pay".

"If it's Russian Federation, if it's Syria, if it's Iran, if it's all of them together, we'll figure it out and we'll know the answers quite soon", Trump said.

Ms Haley urged the UN to take action, but stressed whether it acts or not "either way, the United States will respond".

British UN Ambassador Karen Pierce told reporters that Britain "would prefer to start with a proper investigation" but that all options were on the table and London was in close contact with its USA and French allies. When Trump ordered airstrikes a year ago after a chemical weapons attack, it was a response to the use of sarin gas, which is banned by the Chemical Weapons Convention that Syria has signed. At least 49 people are reported to have been killed in the attack on April 7.

Saturday's attack unfolded amid a resumed offensive by the Syrian government.

Pro-government fighters reached a deal with the rebels controlling Douma in order to start evacuating people from the area.

The threat of what could be imminent US military action prompted Russian Ambassador to the UN Vasily Nebenzya to warn on April 9 that Moscow will not allow its forces on the ground in Syria to be put at risk.

Earlier on Monday, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said it was investigating the incident and has made a preliminary analysis of the reports of the alleged use of chemical weapons.

Rebel leaders in Syria say dozens of people were killed in the apparent chemical attack in Douma, Syria.

"Signaling we want to remove our troops in no way degrades our ability to hold parties responsible", Sanders said. Russia's United Nations ambassador, Vassily Nebenzia, accused Washington of deliberately stoking global tensions by threatening Russian Federation in a tone "beyond the threshold of what is acceptable, even during the Cold War". "There will be consequences for this unacceptable atrocity", it said.

British Prime Minister Teresa May called the attack "barbaric", saying during a visit to Denmark that "If they are found to be responsible, the regime and its backers, including Russian Federation, must be held to account". They reportedly agreed that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government "must be held accountable for its continued human rights abuses".

"The horrific chemical weapons attacks in Syria are further proof that there can not be a future for Syria under Bashar al-Assad".

The Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad and its ally Russian Federation have called the allegations "fabrications". "No hospitals or medicine to ease their pain", she said. She also called for a vote on Tuesday on a draft resolution for a fresh investigation into the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

Macron and Trump had again reiterated their desire for a "strong reaction" from the global community, Macron's office said.

The Kremlin said Putin discussed the "accusations against Damascus by a number of Western countries" with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and "stressed the unacceptability of provocation and speculation on this matter". The global chemical weapons watchdog opened an investigation on Monday into the attack.

He said veto-wielding United Nations council members need to "wake up fast to the irreparable damage" being done to global efforts to ban such weapons of mass destruction.
