Pro-Assad official says targeted bases were evacuated on Russian warning

Pro-Assad official says targeted bases were evacuated on Russian warning

Reacting to the threats, Russia, an important ally of Syria, accused Washington of disrupting worldwide peace.

Trump's tweet reacted to a warning from Russian Federation that threatened that any USA missiles fired at Syria over the deadly assault on the rebel enclave of Douma near Damascus would be shot down and the launch sites targeted.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria", Trump wrote.

Russian Federation on Friday accused the West of having the sole aim in Syria of overthrowing the government as it urged US, French and British leaders to refrain from military action. "If it's the Russians, if it's Syria, if it's Iran, if it's all of them together, we'll figure it out", he said. It "could be very soon or not so soon at all".

In the same tweet, he also noted significance progress against the Islamic State. "Where is our "Thank you America?"

Sergey Lavrov says Russian consultants have inspected the situation of the alleged assault in Douma, merely east of Damascus, and situated no trace of chemical weapons.

Zakharova suggested that Western media bore some responsibility for the strikes, claiming the White House cited "multiple media sources" on the suspected chemical weapons attack in Douma.

"There have been 20-plus incidents of chemical weapons use", said Rebecca Hersman, a former top Pentagon official now at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

The response may not be military, but it should extract some sort of cost - whether political, military or economic - each time, Hersman said.

Saturday s attack on the then rebel-held Damascus suburb of Ghouta reportedly left more than 40 people dead, and dramatically raised the stakes for outside powers.

Senior lawmakers in the State Duma, which is dominated by Kremlin loyalists, said they had prepared the list ranging from food and alcohol to medicine and consulting services in response to Washington's move last week. "Why is it that this particular Douma attack was the straw that broke the camel's back for President Trump?"

Mr. Trump called out Putin along with the leadership in Iran for backing Assad, who he referred to as "Animal Assad". Russian Federation warned that any Western airstrikes against Syria would ignite a war. At the weekend, Israeli jets hit a Syrian airbase housing Iranian forces and Russian Federation did not respond.

A Russian newspaper, Kommersant, reported that Russia was pressing the USA side to provide coordinates for the sites being targeted so it could move its forces out of the line of fire.

"There are definitely chinks in the armor of Assad's air defenses", Heras said.

To assist the Russians, the US tipped off Moscow about what would be targeted, allowing the Kremlin to move its servicemen out of harm's way.

The US, France and the United Kingdom have reportedly backed the former's plan of striking Syria, in response to the alleged chemical attack.

A broader attack could also target command and control nodes, munitions storage sites, or Assad's helicopter fleet, which has been used to deliver barrel bombs and other munitions.

"While discussing all this, the issue we insisted on was that the increasing tensions in the region would not be right and the crisis in the region should end with the establishment of peace", Erdogan told reporters in Istanbul.

"Our president has not yet made a decision about possible action in Syria".

Russian Federation imported $12.5 billion worth of US products in 2017, according to official customs data.
