U.S. to respond to alleged chemical attack in Syria

  • United States urges new UN resolution on Syria gas attack

Mr Trump on Tuesday cancelled a planned trip to Latin America later this week to focus instead on responding to the Syria incident, the White House said.

But US Ambassador Nikki Haley said the "world must see justice done".

Given the prospect of conflict with Russian Federation as well as Syria, Sanders said that "all options are on the table".

The Hague-based Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said Syria had been asked to make the necessary arrangements for the deployment of an investigation team.

The use of chemical weapons has been regarded as a line in the sand by the global community.

"President Trump will not attend the 8th Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru or travel to Bogota, Colombia as originally scheduled".

USA ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said before the vote that her delegation had tried hard to incorporate Russian proposals in the draft that would not compromise the impartiality of investigation.

Rival draft resolutions by both the USA and Russian Federation to set up a new expert body to probe chemical weapons attacks in Syria have failed to pass at the United Nations Security Council.

In anticipation for a potential strike, Syria's military forces across the country were also simultaneously mobilising, according to a war monitor.

Russian Federation first intervened in Syria in 2015, turning the tables in the multi-front civil war in favour of ally President Bashar al-Assad.

May is not required by law to seek parliamentary approval for offensive military action, but recent interventions in Libya and Iraq have been put to a vote.

Mrs May also told Mr Trump she needed more evidence before signing up to air strikes in Syria, The Times reported.

"We urge Russian Federation not to stand in the way into an investigation into the use of chemical weapons in Syria", she said.

He added that intelligence shared by President Emmanuel Macron and Trump "in theory confirms the use of chemical weapons".

Neither the death toll nor what exactly occurred can be verified as the area is blocked off, with access denied.

Seven nations - including the United States - voted against a Russian resolution that would have set up an investigation overseen by the Security Council.

President Bashar al-Assad's government has invited worldwide inspectors to send a team to Syria to investigate an alleged chemical attack in the town of Douma in a move apparently aimed at averting possible Western military action over the incident.

Reports suggested more than 500 people, mostly women and children, were brought to medical centres with difficulty breathing, foaming at the mouth, and burning sensations in the eyes.
