Earlier on Saturday, Syrian police units entered the town of Douma, a site of a suspected chemical weapons attack and the last rebel town in the eastern Ghouta region.

What is less clear is whether sarin - the agent used in the chemical attack last April that prompted USA missile strikes - or a similar agent was also used. He says Moscow has "irrefutable information that it was another fabrication".

There was no word from Russian President Vladimir Putin himself, though his foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, said Moscow was in contact with Washington to discuss an atmosphere which he described as alarming.

He said that "intelligence agencies of a state that is now striving to spearhead a Russo-phobic campaign were involved in that fabrication". He didn't elaborate or name the state.

White Helmets first-responders and Syrian activists have claimed the suspected chemical attack was carried out by the Syrian government on April 7 and killed more than 40 people in Douma, allegations that drew global outrage and prompted Washington and its allies to consider a military response.

Trump himself appeared on Thursday to cast doubt on at least the timing of any US -led military action, tweeting: "Never said when an attack on Syria would take place".

Western officials believe chlorine was used in Saturday's attack on Douma, the main city in the longtime rebel bastion of Eastern Ghouta, where the British government now estimates 75 people were killed.

Russian Federation also calls it "fabricated".

John Hannah, senior counselor at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, who has worked with Bolton in the past, said Bolton was opposed to "empty symbolic gestures that make us feel good but have no strategic effects". The ministry additionally pointed to previous alleged use of chemicals by the rebels in fighting with Syrian government troops.

"This is grotesque, it is a blatant lie, it is the worst piece of fake news we've yet seen from the Russian propaganda machine", Pierce told reporters. Assad and his close ally, Russia, have denied government forces ever used such weapons. And the three allies are considering a joint military strike in retaliation. Syria's civil war, which began as a popular uprising against Assad, is now in its eighth year.

It seeks answers from Syria on gaps in its chemical weapons declaration to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

Russian officials and President Trump have US have exchanged heated rhetoric since Trump began talk of a USA response to the alleged chemical attack throughout the past week.

Here's who Russian Federation has blamed this week for the alleged chemical attack that killed dozens, including many children.

"No CW traces, no victims to be found anywhere, but plenty of empty words and accusations", said Zakharova.

France said Thursday it has proof that Syrian government forces, which Russian Federation has pledged to protect, conducted the attack.

The capture of Douma has clinched a major victory for Assad, crushing what was once a centre of the insurgency near Damascus, and underlines his unassailable position in the war.
