US UK France launch air strike in Syria Russia warns of consequences

"We had an early warning of the strike from the Russians. and all military bases were evacuated a few days ago", the official said. "It would provoke a retaliation operation by government forces and the White Helmets were to use it to stage a provocation with an alleged use of chemical weapons", he said.

The world must provide a "robust, united and steadfast response", Delattre said. "We can not depend on what someone on the other side of the ocean takes into his head in the morning". Vassily Nebenzia, Moscow's ambassador to the United Nations, said he "cannot exclude" war between the U.S. and Russian Federation. "The immediate priority is to avert the danger of war".

France said Thursday it has proof that Syrian government forces, which Russian Federation has pledged to protect, conducted the attack. "We hope there will be no point of no return".

US allies have offered strong words of support for Washington but no clear military plans have yet emerged.

"None of the cruise missiles launched by the United States and its allies entered the zones of Russian air defenses around Tartus and Hmeymin", the ministry said in a statement.

"Our military specialists have visited this place. and they did not find any trace of chlorine or any other chemical substance used against civilians", Lavrov said.

Monday: Nebenzia told the U.N. Security Council "there was no chemical attack" over the previous weekend. Trump had dialled down the rhetoric on Thursday. A week later, the government regained full control of the town following a surrender deal with the rebels there, and on Sunday it deployed another 5,000 security forces in Douma. Trump asked, adding the two countries are "most responsible for supporting, equipping and financing the criminal Assad regime".
