Syria invites chemical weapons inspectors to probe attack claims

In April past year, the United States attacked a Syrian air base with cruise missiles after concluding that the government of President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against civilians.

Mr. Trump said that the administration is still "studying" the situation in Syria closely and is talking to military leaders about an appropriate response.

Syria's government has invited the global chemical watchdog to visit the rebel-held town where an alleged toxic gas attack killed dozens at the weekend, state media said Tuesday.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said in February that Britain should consider joining military action against Assad's regime if there is fresh "incontrovertible" evidence he has used chemical weapons against his own people.

Following the failure of both the Russian and American proposals, Nebenzya stated that if the United States "took the decision to carry out an illegal military adventure - and I do hope you come to your senses - well, then you will have to bear responsibility for it yourselves".

U.S. officials told Reuters that Washington was weighing a multinational military response.

In an interview with Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV station, Zasypkin said any missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launching sites targeted. "There can be no credible diplomacy if such atrocities are not met with a strong, united and resolute response from the global community", Philippe said.

He asserted that people should not experience any financial hardship while getting quality medical service. This year, it coincides with the 70th anniversary of the World Health Organization (WHO).

Trump said: "We have a lot of options militarily. And if he does, it's going to be very tough, very tough".

Moscow opposed any Western strike on its close ally Assad.

The resolutions proposed today "are not about Douma, let's not mislead anyone about that", Nebenzya said, having noted that the USA has already reached its conclusion on the matter without any investigation at all.

At least 60 people were killed and more than 1,000 injured in Saturday's suspected chemical weapons attack on the town of Douma, according to a Syrian relief group.

The Syrian government and its ally Russian Federation have denied involvement in the attack. Mr. Trump, though, tweeted on Sunday "many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria".

"If it's Russian Federation, if it's Syria, if it's Iran, if it's all of them together, we'll figure it out", he said.

The OPCW did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The attack comes nearly exactly a year after a chemical atrocity in the northern Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun killed dozens of people.

Fighting between the army and rebels escalated and by August 2012 the conflict had become a full-blown civil war.
