President Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria, which is backed by Russian Federation, has also denied responsibility for the attack.

Mr Nebenzia dismissed claims the Syrian regime had used chemical weapons as "fake news" as he called for inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to fly to Syria on Tuesday to visit the site of the attack, which has left at least 40 people, including children, dead.

Washington earlier presented a draft resolution that would establish a new independent inquiry of chemical attacks in Syria, but diplomats said the measure was unlikely to win Moscow's support. In the meantime, an global team of experts is traveling to Syria in an attempt to come up with blood or soil samples that would prove chemical weapons were once again used.

"Everybody's going to pay a price".

President Trump put Syria and Russian Federation on notice Wednesday morning, promising that missiles fired at Syria "will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!'" - while also telling the Kremlin that it should not partner with a "Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!" This echoes his words from a year ago, when the United States launched missiles against a Syrian airbase after anti-government militants accused Damascus of a chemical attack in the town of Khan Shaykhun.

A senior Russian lawmaker says that a USA strike on Syria could trigger a direct military clash between Russia and the United States.

"Well, it's the defining moment in his presidency because he has challenged (Syrian President Bashar) Assad in the past not to use chemical weapons".

Trump took to Twitter Sunday to condemn the alleged attack and warned of serious consequences, writing in part: "President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad".

"As of tomorrow, Russian military police units will be deployed to the city of Douma to ensure security, maintain law and order and arrange assistance to the local population", Russian general Viktor Poznikhir told reporters today.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the country's conflict, said 14 fighters were killed, including Syrian army officers and Iranian forces.

The politician said the Syrian government was expecting a limited strike, similar to the one on Shayrat air base last year, referring to last year's United States attack on the central air base of Shayrat in the central province of Homs following a chemical weapons attack on northern Syria that Washington blamed on the government.

Syrian state media first blamed the United States for the attack but now says Israel did it, and NBC News is reporting that USA officials have confirmed to them that Israel did carry out the airstrike.

Russian state news agency RIA Novosti quoted Andrei Krasov, deputy chairman of the State Duma's defence committee, as saying Russia would treat a U.S. airstrike on Syria "not just as an act of aggression but a war crime of the Western coalition".

Moscow and Damascus have fiercely denied that chemical weapons were used in Syria.

With tensions growing, pan-European air traffic control agency Eurocontrol warned airlines to exercise caution in the eastern Mediterranean due to the possible launch of air strikes into Syria over the next 72 hours.

Britain said it was working with its allies to agree a joint response to the reported chemical attack on Douma.

The US president said that that a "major decision" on Syria would be made within 24 to 48 hours.
