Insurgent groups surrendered after a series of government assaults aided by Russia

US President Donald Trump had earlier warned regime-backer Russian Federation that "missiles will be coming" to Syria over the alleged attack in Douma that rescuers said killed 40 people.

President Trump walks in to speak in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House Friday to speak to the nation about the US military response to Syria's chemical weapon attack on April 7.

Moscow also claimed Syrian rebels had now capitulated in Douma, less than 10 miles from the capital Damascus, to leave the city under the complete control of President Assad's forces and Russian military police.

The British Prime Minister, Theresa May, was convening a meeting of her Cabinet on Thursday afternoon, at which she is expected to make the case for supporting the USA in any military action against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Britain's cabinet gave Prime Minister Theresa May the green light Thursday to join the United States and France in planning possible military strikes in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria.

US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert has said the US has "a very high level of confidence" that Syria was responsible for the recent chemical attack in the Middle East nation.

"These are not the actions of a man, they are the crimes of a monster instead", he said of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

President Donald Trump warned Russia Wednesday to "get ready" for a missile attack on its ally Syria.

An Australia Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) investigator told the court a syringe was also found Babu's bag in the bedroom. Ms Martin said an investigation into the incident had found denials by the two athletes to be "unreliable and evasive".

Shortly after President Trump announce airstrikes, Syria's capital has been rocked by loud explosions that lit up the sky with heavy smoke. Syrian TV reported that Syrian air defenses have responded to the U.S. -British-French attack.

The first target was a scientific research center in the greater Damascus area, where research, development, and production, and testing of chemical and biological "warfare technology" was being conducted.

"Now we have to make some. decisions, so they'll be made fairly soon".

"In 2013, President Putin guaranteed the elimination of Assad's chemical weapons".

"We hope that. the USA and their allies will refrain from military action against a sovereign state", said Russian Ambassador to the U.N. Vassily Nebenzia.

He accused Russian Federation of being complicit in Syria's retention of chemical weapons, despite a 2013 deal that Moscow helped broker requiring Syria to abandon them.

President Donald Trump is set to address the nation Friday night amid anticipation of a retaliatory strike for an apparent Syrian chemical weapon attack last week.

Asked about possible United States strikes on Syria, President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that "it's necessary to avoid any steps that may fuel tensions in Syria".

Teachers Remain At Capitol Despite OEA Walkout Announcement
Although lawmakers passed some bills teachers lobbied for last week, lawmakers still refused to meet all of teacher's demands. Labor Education spokeswoman Susan Close said in opposition the Liberals were silent on the $210 million cut from SA funding.

Trump did not provide details on the joint U.S. -British-French attack, but it was expected to include barrages of cruise missiles launched from outside Syrian airspace.

Russia's foreign minister has said a suspected chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma last weekend was staged with the help of a foreign intelligence agency.

But that the U.S. did not want an "indefinite presence" in Syria and would only stay until Islamic State was destroyed.

The president on Wednesday seemed to confirm future USA strikes in Syria when he tweeted that missiles fired at Syria "will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!'"

"Smart missiles should fly toward terrorists, not the legal government that has been fighting global terrorism for several years on its territory", Zakharova wrote in response to Trump's Wednesday tweet.

The strikes seemed unlikely to have much impact on the balance of power in Syria's seven-year-old civil war, in which Assad's government has steadily gained the upper hand against armed opponents since Russian Federation intervened in 2015.

"We can not tolerate the trivialisation of the use of chemical weapons, which is an immediate danger for the Syrian people and for our collective security", Mr Macron said.

CNN reported a Western military operation was under way in Syria and that Tomahawk cruise missiles are believed to have been mobilized as was the case in the air raid of April previous year.
