Trump made a further statement on the strike on Syria

Trump made a further statement on the strike on Syria

U.S. officials have refused to rule out direct military engagement with Russian Federation, with the White House saying "all options are on the table". Later he attempted to clarify his threat, saying that he had never specified when the usa would conduct an attack on Syria. British officials said up to 75 people were killed.

"Our president has not yet made a decision about possible action in Syria", Ms. Haley told the council. "We are continuing to assess intelligence and are engaged in conversations with our partners and allies".

"I will tell you that, first of all, did a chemical weapons attack happen?" And he insisted it remains USA policy not to be involved directly in Syria's civil war. May be very soon or not so soon at all!

Later Thursday he was noncommittal.

"We are actually looking forward to closer cooperation with other countries on Syria".

The UN Security Council, tasked with maintaining global peace and security, has been riven, with Moscow virulently denying the Douma attack took place, or postulating that it was carried out by rebels.

But across Western capitals opposition to military action also grew. A joint military operation, possibly with France rather than the U.S.in the lead, could send a message of worldwide unity about enforcing the prohibitions on chemical weapons.

Later on Thursday, French President Emmanuel Macron said his country had proof that the Syrian government launched the gas attacks.

Russian Federation has been involved in the Syrian conflict since 2015 and became Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's main ally in the war against armed opposition groups. The Cabinet agreed on the need to "take action" to deter further chemical weapons use by Assad, but added that May would continue to consult with allies to coordinate an global response. Initial reports indicated the use of chlorine gas, possibly in addition to the nerve agent Sarin.

Russia, she alleged, holds some responsibility in the fact that they had guaranteed that Syria wouldn't use chemical weapons again, which they did. The US government is talking about "a response" after accusations that Damascus conducted a chemical attack in Douma based on unverified claims. It was not clear whether the presence of the investigators could affect the timing of any USA military action. Syria and Russian Federation denied the attack. On Wednesday he went even further, warning Russian Federation "to get ready" after Moscow vowed to shoot down any missiles fired at Syria.

"There's a tactical concern that we don't add to innocent civilian deaths and that we do everything humanly possible to avoid that".

As tensions mount between the U.S. and Russian Federation over a possible USA strike, the Kremlin said a crisis communications link with the United States meant to avoid an accidental clash over Syria was being used by both sides. U.S. lawmakers questioned whether Trump has the legal authority to order strikes without Congressional approval and opposition parties voiced concern. More broadly, he doubted the wisdom of bombing.

Trump has again written a message in his Twitter. "We need to know where that's going, what the goal of it is before we take that act".

He pointed out that former U.S. President Barack Obama also threatened to take military actions against Syria over similar allegations, but did not carry out his threat. In Syria, this instinct points him away from a military-centric answer to Assad, writes Bonnie Kristian. Russia's ambassador to Lebanon said any missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launching sites targeted a stark warning of a potential major confrontation. "Yes, it has happened", she said.
