What Brits really think about Syria missile strikes, in three charts

Trump now says Syria attack could be 'very soon or not so soon at all'

The attack took place in eastern Ghouta, one of the last remaining strongholds of anti-government rebels in the country.

Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni said in calls with other Western leaders that Italy would not directly be involved in military retaliation.

The UK [VIDEO]has called the Russian propaganda a "grotesque, blatant lie", stating that the UK had nothing to do with Saturday's chemical attack.

Mattis said options would be discussed with Trump at a meeting of his National Security Council on Thursday afternoon.

"They agreed that the Assad regime had established a pattern of risky behaviour in relation to the use of chemical weapons".

Russia, in addition to tossing out unproven allegations against Britain, alleged the West was feigning outrage over the attack as a cover for a plan to overthrow Assad's government.

In London, worldwide investigators have confirmed that former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with a nerve agent.

While the prospect of USA -led military action that could lead to confrontation with Russian Federation hung over the Middle East, the White House accused Syria of carrying out a toxic gas assault on April 7 that killed dozens of people in Douma, near Damascus.

Sanders added that US officials are "continuing to assess intelligence" and are "engaged in conversations with our partners and allies".

The US and several allies have accused Syria of using chemical gas in Douma killing up to 70 people on Saturday. "I can't go beyond that", Sanders told reporters.

The suspected poison attack by Syrian government forces that allegedly killed more than 40 people has drawn worldwide outrage and prompted the U.S. and its allies to consider a military response.

She had recalled ministers from their Easter holiday for the meeting to discuss Britain's response to what she has called a barbaric attack that can not go unchallenged.

Noratollah Tajik, Iran's former ambassador to Jordan, has downplayed US President Donald Trump's recent threats to attack Syria, saying that he believes just a few missiles will be fired at military bases or some of the industrial centres. "We need to know where that's going, what the goal of it is before we take that act".

United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres on April 11 said he had met with ambassadors from the five permanent members including Russian Federation and the United States, and "stressed the need to avoid the situation spiraling out of control".

Britain and its allies accuse Damascus of carrying out the suspected attack on Douma and are considering military action against Syria in response.

Russian Federation told the United States and its allies not to carry out any military strike.

The day before a team from the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog was to arrive in Douma, east of Damascus, Mr Lavrov said Russian experts have inspected the site and found no trace of chemical weapons.

Konashenkov released statements he said came from medics at Douma's hospital, saying a group of people toting video cameras entered the hospital, shouting that its patients were struck with chemical weapons, dousing them with water and causing panic.

The U.S., France and Britain have been consulting about launching a military strike in Syria.

Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov speaks to the media a joint news conference with Dutch Foreign Minister Halbe Zijlstra following their talks, in Moscow, Russia, Friday, April 13, 2018.
