The Russian military on Friday said it had proof that an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria's Eastern Ghouta was staged on orders from London.

White Helmets first-responder volunteer and activists claimed an alleged chemical attack on April 7 by the Syrian government killed over 40 people in the town of Douma, the allegations that drew worldwide outrage and prompted Washington and its allies to consider a military response.

May has indicated she wants Britain to join in any US -led strikes in response to the attack in Douma. But on Thursday, Trump tweeted: "Never said when an attack on Syria would take place". "Could be very soon or not so soon at all!" "Could be very soon or not so soon at all!" he wrote.

"Our president has not yet made a decision about possible action in Syria", Ms. Haley told the council.

Why is the West considering military action?

After Trump posted on Twitter that an attack was coming, the USA has reportedly been in discussions with allies Britain and France about joint operations.

Could California be split up to better represent its citizens? "Voters have been skeptical in California", he said. Draper, 59, launched the CAL 3 initiative in October. "It's completely unworkable and ridiculous", Maviglio said.

"They agreed it was vital that the use of chemical weapons did not go unchallenged, and on the need to deter the further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime".

Trump is now weighing a response to the alleged chemical attack, which he has blamed on Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Speaking to congress at a hearing of the House Armed Services Committee on Thursday, Mattis said he believed a chemical attack had taken place and blamed Russian Federation for being complicit in Syrian government's possession of chemical weapons.

She said United States officials are "continuing to assess intelligence" and are "engaged in conversations with our partners and allies". Both the Syrian and Russian governments have said they would support the study.

"The immediate priority is to avert the danger of war", he told reporters.

May has said "all indications" point to Syrian responsibility for the attack.

Noting that inspectors from the Organisation for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) were due to visit the site shortly, it underlined the Damascus government's commitment that they will have full access and freedom of movement.

It was not clear whether Trump and USA allies would wait for the results of the investigation before deciding on a strike.

The Iranian envoy talked about "Tehran's support of Syria and its people during the war on terror".

Trump did not detail what a strike on Syria would look like, or whether these would be USA missiles.

Nervous world stock markets showed signs of recovery after Trump's signal that military strikes might not be imminent.

"The United States estimates that (President Bashar) Assad has used chemical weapons in the Syrian war at least 50 times", said Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

In 2013, Parliament defeated a call by then-Prime Minister David Cameron for airstrikes in response to an earlier chemical attack in Syria. Vladimir Shamanov, who chairs the defence committee of the lower house, said the vessels had departed the base for their own safety, which was "normal practice" when there were threats of attack.

Since Saturday, when images of ashen toddlers struggling for breath emerged after the alleged attack, there has been a sustained military buildup in the eastern Mediterranean.
