Trump warns Russia on Syria: 'missiles 'will be coming'

Trump is expected to announce a military response


"If it's Russia, if it's Syria, if it's Iran, if it's all of them together, we'll figure it out and we'll know the answers quite soon", he pledged Monday. Russia is Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's most powerful ally.

President Donald Trump has canceled his scheduled trip to South America, the White House says, citing growing tensions in Syria as the reason. "So he needs to take action". "You should not be a partner with Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it".

Trump called the raid a "a total witch hunt".

"The situation is tense", Peskov said, adding that Russia is calling for an "unprejudiced and objective investigation before making judgements" on the suspected use of chemical weapons.

In 2013, then Prime Minister David Cameron lost a vote on military action against the Syrian regime by 13 votes, though British lawmakers approved bombing ISIS forces in Syria the following year.

Trump's national security team huddled at the White House on Wednesday to discuss the response to Syria. Over 160,000 people have managed to leave the besieged area since mid-March, according to the latest data from the ministry.

The President has been mulling strikes against the Assad regime for suspected use of chlorine-based chemical weapons against civilians Saturday.

A day after saying missiles would be flying toward Syria, President Trump sowed uncertainty about his plans Thursday by claiming he never said "when" there would be an attack, and reserving a final decision for at least another day.

Trump has also promised time and time again that he doesn't telegraph US military moves because doing so gives the enemy an unnecessary advantage.

Signalling that a US-led military attack is imminent, the president promised that the bombs "will be coming, nice and new and smart". The U.S.S. New York, an amphibious landing ship and part of the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, is also nearby.

Meanwhile, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has warned of the need to avoid the situation "spiralling out of control". Velayati congratulated Assad and the people on Syria on defeating terrorism in Eastern Ghouta, the media outlet reported.

Regardless of Trump's bellicose language, the US currently does not have a US aircraft carrier strike force deployed in the Middle East. The carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, the lead vessel in carrier strike group nine, had been in the region launching strikes against both Islamic State and the Taliban but left recently after its four-month deployment, arriving in the Philippines on Wednesday.

"So striking at Syria is not a good solution, but doing nothing after the use of chemical weapons is even worse", he said.

"They (the three leaders) agreed that the international community needed to respond to uphold the worldwide prohibition on the use of chemical weapons, " the statement continued.

Douma was under renewed assault from Syrian and Russian forces last week.

Moisi stressed the "risk of escalation" of the conflict amid increasing concerns about a U.S. -Russia proxy war.

Assad's government and Russia have said there was no evidence a gas attack had taken place and that the claim was bogus.

Senior Russian figures have warned of a Russian response to a US attack.
