Syrian Observatory: Assad Forces Empty Airports and Military Bases

British PM says will speak with Donald Trump regarding Syria chemical attack

President Trump put Syria and Russian Federation on notice Wednesday morning, promising that missiles fired at Syria "will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!'" - while also telling the Kremlin that it should not partner with a "Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!"

Last week, Trump advocated pulling US troops out of the country altogether, a drastic move strongly opposed by top military officials.

Mattis also ignored a question about whether he was concerned about telegraphing U.S. military moves in Syria, a question appearing to refer to Trump's earlier tweet on Wednesday.

President Trump's extraordinary threat was delivered in two starklyworded messages on Twitter yesterday as the furious worldwide row over the chemical weapon attack on Douma in Eastern Ghouta intensified dramatically.

The United States was actively collecting evidence on how Syria and Russian Federation were responding to US threats, officials said, adding that Washington believed Syria and its allies were nearly certainly also moving personnel and military equipment - beyond just aircraft - into protective locations. The United States President also said that Russian Federation shouldn't be partners with a "Gas Killing Animal".

That incident prompted the USA to launch several dozen Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian air base.

A member of the Senate Armed Services Committee urged President Trump Wednesday to launch a "regime-threatening" military attack against Syria, as the president warned on social media that a missile strike is imminent.

Earlier the World Health Organisation said some 500 patients showed signs of exposure to toxic chemicals following the shelling of Douma on the weekend.

The Russian military said later it had observed movements of USA naval forces in the Gulf.

Trump also has blamed supporters of Assad in Iran and Russian Federation for the attack.

With renewed USA military action seemingly imminent - and as Trump threatened that the United States missiles would be "nice and new and 'smart!'" - both Washington and Moscow raised the rhetorical stakes.

"Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova responded to the verbal jousting on Wednesday by saying: "'Smart' missiles must strike terrorists, not the legitimate government that has been fighting worldwide terrorism on its territory for several years".

The main goal of the attack would be the prevention of any further use of chemical weapons, said Korb.

Russian lawmakers have warned the United States that Moscow would view an airstrike on Syria as a war crime, saying it could trigger a direct military clash. "Because so many things get announced and then they never happened". You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!'.

"The intelligence provided certainly paints a different picture", she said.

Trump spoke by phone with British Prime Minister Theresa May.

The Associated Press reports that the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) will send a fact-finding group to Douma "shortly".

Syria's government has denied accusations of using banned weapons such as chlorine or sarin throughout the country's civil war.
