Russian Official Claims Chemical Attack In Syria Was 'Staged'

Russian Official Claims Chemical Attack In Syria Was 'Staged' Russian Official Claims Chemical Attack In Syria Was 'Staged'

The Syrian government and its allies have absorbed a USA -led attack on Saturday and the targeted sites were evacuated days ago thanks to a warning from Russian Federation, a senior official in a regional alliance that backs Damascus said.

During a U.N. Security Council meeting Friday, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley condemned Russian Federation for saying the attack was staged.

The Russian military said later it had observed movements of U.S. naval forces in the Gulf. "We call on the leadership of these states to immediately reconsider". Both the Russian military and the Syrian government said they would facilitate the mission and ensure the inspectors' security.

Russian Federation has been a staunch ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad's government and has helped turn the tide of war in his favor since entering the conflict in September 2015.

The United States, Britain and France carried out a wave of punitive strikes against Bashar al-Assad´s Syrian regime on Saturday in response to alleged chemical weapons attacks that President Donald Trump branded the "crimes of a monster". During his meeting with Trump and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joe Dunford, Mattis pushed for more evidence of the Assad regime's culpability for the attack, to bolster the case for air strikes, The New York Times reported.In France, Macron claimed in a TV interview he had "proof" that Assad's regime had used chemical weapons and vowed a response "in due course".

Trump tweeted, referring to Moscow's alliance with Assad. Lavrov said Friday Russian experts inspected the site of the alleged attack in the town of Douma and found no trace of chemical weapons. Could military action from Washington and its allies trigger an armed confrontation with Putin s Russian Federation, a resentful nuclear-armed foe?

United States intelligence shows a Russian claim that the attack was faked was false, Sanders said. "We can not take such risks", said Dvorkovich, speaking at a forum. It "could be very soon or not so soon at all".

On Thursday, Trump held a meeting with his national security team, but White House officials say no final decisions have been made.

Erdogan also said the current situation showed tensions had eased, but that he would continue his talks with his U.S. and Russian counterparts.

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.

They still control the northwestern province of Idlib, near Turkey, and a southern region around Deraa, on the border with Jordan. President Donald Trump has already indicated he would like to withdraw the approximately 2,000 US ground troops now in northern Syria, where they've been assisting Syrian Kurds to defeat Islamic State militants.
