Russia Claims It Game US Permission To Bomb Syria

Russia Claims It Game US Permission To Bomb Syria

Trump ordered the retaliatory missile attacks on crucial weapons development plants due to Russian Federation and Syria's involvement in a deadly chemical weapons incident in Douma.

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres wants to relaunch the Geneva political process aimed at restoring peace to the country.

Underlining the "importance of the global community working together to re-establish an independent mechanism that attributes responsibility to the perpetrators of attacks such as the one in Douma", May spoke of "Russia's blocking of diplomatic action", the statement said.

The nine-man team are to investigate the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government.

The Civil Defence no longer has a presence in Douma after being evacuated to rebel-held areas of northern Syria when the government took over the town.

The team had to return to its base in Damascus after Tuesday's shooting attack.

Ms Pierce, speaking to the Associated Press, said: "We do look to the Russians and the Syrians to uphold the promises they made to the Security Council last week that the inspectors would be allowed in, that they would be escorted, that they would be safe and that they could have free access".

General Kenneth McKenzie, director of the USA military's Joint Staff, said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime retains a "residual" chemical capability at a variety of sites across the country.

The United States, France and Britain have accused Assad's regime of carrying out the suspected chemical attack, but Russian Federation and Syria deny toxic gas was used in Douma.


"We are outraged by continuous distortions of facts and deliberate distortion of reality [on the Douma incident], that can be found in large quantities in statements by officials of a number of Western States", she added.

The state SANA news agency says the Army of Islam fighters and their families are leaving the town of Dumayr on Thursday.

THE HAGUE/BEIRUT-A United Nations security team came under fire in Syria while doing reconnaissance for inspectors to visit sites of the April 7 suspected chemical weapons attack, and officials said it was no longer clear when the inspectors would be able to go in.

"Jerry Smith, a former OPCW weapons inspector who worked in Syria in 2013, tells NPR that the passage of time makes inspection more challenging for multiple reasons".

It was the first meeting between Bolton, who started at the White House this month, and Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov, the administration said in a statement.

The United Nations said more security measures were needed before the inspectors could go in.

Russia, a key ally of Syria, has denied that any chemical attack took place.

But on Wednesday, OPCW said that's not what happened.

They also "agreed that the use of chemical weapons by anyone, anywhere, for any purposes was unacceptable", after May noted that "the use of a nerve agent" against Yulia and Sergei Skripal in Salisbury was a "grave attack on the sovereign territory of the U.K".
