Iranians killed in missile attack on Syrian air base

According to the reports, the chemical attack on Saturday killed at least 49 people and injured 500 others, Thomas Markram, the deputy to the UN High Representative for Disarmament Affairs, told the Council.

On Sunday, President Donald Trump warned the Syrian government it would pay a "big price" for the suspected chemical weapons attack.

He even included Vladimir Putin, the Russian president in his rage against the chemical attacks on the civilians in Syria.

USA officials told Reuters that Washington was weighing a multinational military response.

The attacks have come almost a week after Trump expressed his desire to bring the USA troops back to the country.

Macron and Trump had again reiterated their desire for a "strong reaction" from the worldwide community, Macron's office said.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment Monday on the reported missile strike. And if he does, it's going to be very tough, very tough.

'President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad.

The United States is determined to "see that the monster who dropped chemical weapons on the Syrian people is held to account", Haley said.

Nebenzia alleged that the anti-government forces had chemical weapons and could stage an attack.

Pogba offered to Man City? Mourinho responds to Guardiola claims
City needed one more win to be crowned league champions with just six games left to go - it had run up a 27-game unbeaten streak. Pogba scored pair of goals and so, Manchester United turned around and with an fantastic victory, they left the ground finally.

"From what we hear now, I am afraid they are looking for a military option, which is very, very risky", he said after the United Nations meeting, where he said Russian Federation had investigated the scene in Douma and found no evidence that chemical weapons were used. It gave no further details.

"The images, especially of suffering children, have shocked the conscience of the entire civilized world", White House spokesman Sarah Sanders said. "Yes, this is about the actions, the brutal actions by Assad and his regime". The politician, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about secret military movements, said the atmosphere and US statements hint at a possible strike, "but there are no indications on the ground so far".

"For that, that theme beloved by the West, the use of chemical weapons by the armed forces of Syrian Arab Republic, is being used", Yevtushenko told Interfax.

The UN Security Council was holding an emergency meeting today to discuss the chemical attack. But he suggested that the chemical attack had crossed a red line and prompted Israel to take action to send a message to Syria and arch-enemy Iran.

Instead, they have in recent investigations gathered blood samples from victims and interviewed witnesses outside Syria. "However, we continue to closely watch the situation and support the ongoing diplomatic efforts to hold those who use chemical weapons, in Syria and otherwise, accountable".

The airstrikes killed 14 people, including fighters from Iran, according to a conflict monitoring group, The New York Times reported.

France accused Russian Federation of having a hand in the attack on Douma that drew global outrage.

Israel, which has struck Syrian army locations many times in the course of its neighbor's 7-year-old civil war, has neither confirmed nor denied mounting the raid.

The United States launched a missile strike on a Syrian air base a year ago in response to the killing of dozens of civilians in a sarin gas attack in an opposition-held town in northwest Syria.
