UN chief warns of Syria spiraling out of control

In a series of tweets, US President Donald Trump has warned Syria and its Russian ally that missiles "will be coming".

Trump's tweet also addressed U.S. action against ISIS, who were until recently one of the biggest threats in Syria.

Israel has said it won't let Iran entrench militarily in Syria, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took the occasion of Israel's Holocaust Remembrance Day to warn Tehran not to test his country.

The President made the statement in a tweet Thursday morning. "Where is our 'Thank you America?'"

Douma was the site of an apparent chemical attack by the Assad regime that left a reported 70 people dead and 500 more injured at the weekend. However, the exact number of people affected by the attack is unknown, with conflicting figures emerging from local reports. "Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!' You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!"

But as his own boss, and without anyone to answer to, the rebel chief could change his mind on a whim, "depending on circumstances", Vinueza explained.

She has cast the attack in Douma, which was held at the time by rebels, as barbaric.

"We don't want a war, but we don't fear it and we're ready for it", Shaaban said.

Prime Minister Theresa May has indicated Britain is willing to participate in US -led strikes against Syria.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said Thursday a special fact-finding mission is on its way to Syria and will start investigating the suspected chemical attack there as of Saturday.

On Tuesday, Russia's ambassador to Lebanon told local media, "If there is a strike by the Americans, then. the missiles will be downed and even the sources from which the missiles were fired".

Guterres urged the Security Council to "act responsibly in these unsafe circumstances", according to AFP. He added that Washington seems determined to take military action in Syria and this is unsafe .

Shortly after his tweeted warning to Russia, Mr. Trump took a more conciliatory tone in lamenting that the U.S. -Russia relationship "is worse now than it has ever been".

"The Prime Minister said it was a further example of the erosion of worldwide law in relation to the use of chemical weapons, which was deeply concerning to us all". The group will not assign blame for the attack if it's proven to have happened.

"But also it's a very, very delicate circumstance and we've got to make this judgment on a very careful, very deliberate, very well thought-through basis".

US forces killed scores of Russian mercenaries in Syria last week in what may be the deadliest clash between citizens of the former foes since the Cold War, according to one USA official and three Russians familiar with the matter.
