The Answer Trump Needs in Syria

Syria: 'Chemical attack' and international threats – Here's recap of events since April 7

Douma, on the outskirts of Damascus, was the last rebel-held area in the eastern Ghouta region.

Trump posted a tweet on Wednesday warning Russian Federation to "get ready" because missiles "will be coming" to Syria.

Syrian President Bashar Assad has met with Iranian Supreme Leader's Top Adviser for International Affairs, Ali Akbar Velayati, discussing developments in the war against terrorism, in the wake of Donald Trump threats to attack Syria, after an alleged chemical attack in the country.

Syria: 'Chemical attack' and international threats – Here's recap of events since April 7

"U.N. resolutions have been taken, and today we might be outside the framework of these resolutions, but we are within the framework of worldwide law: This dictator is murdering his own people", Jean-Jacques Bridey, head of the French parliament's defence commission, said this past week. Later he attempted to clarify his threat, saying that he had never specified when the United States would conduct an attack on Syria.

Mr. Mattis said he personally believes Syria is guilty of an "inexcusable" use of chemical weapons, while noting that the global fact-finding team would likely fall short of determining who was responsible.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said that the goal of the groundless reports about alleged chemical attacks was to provide cover for terrorists and justify the use of military force against Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Meanwhile, the Assad regime denies using chemical weapons and called the images from the attack fake.

During his testimony, Mattis spoke about a possible strike against Syria.

"Germany will not take part in possible - there have not been any decisions yet, I want to stress that - military action", Merkel said following a meeting with Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen in Berlin.

British Prime Minister Theresa May also called the strikes "right and legal", saying the worldwide community would not tolerate the continued use of chemical weapons.

Earlier in the day, Bashar al-Jaafari, Syrian ambassador to the USA, said in NY that two investigating teams from the OPCW were scheduled to arrive in Syria within the next 24 hours. "When I leave here, I go to a meeting where the National Security Council will be meeting on this and we will take forward various options to the president".

Mr. Mattis said that although the United States has no hard proof, he believes the Syrian government was responsible for Saturday's attack.

The U.S., France and Britain have been in extensive consultations about launching a military strike as early as the end of this week, U.S. officials have said. United States lawmakers questioned whether Trump has the legal authority to order strikes without Congressional approval and opposition parties voiced concern. The fact-finding mission of the OPCW is to start their work in Douma on Saturday.
