Russia Claims Syria Chemical Attack Staged by Foreign Agents

Watch live: Sergey Lavrov could speak on Syria at press conference

Russian Federation has dismissed the purported chemical attack as fake and strongly warned the US and its allies against launching a military strike in Syria.

And The Russian Center for the Reconciliation of Opposing Sides in Syria reportedly examined Douma on Monday and found no traces of chemical weapons.

U.S. President Donald Trump has blamed the attack on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, saying there wasn't "much of a doubt" he was behind the strike.

The current escalation of the situation in Syria "has a destructive effect on the whole system of worldwide relations", the Kremlin said.

The US, Britain and France made a decision to fire over 100 missiles at Syria as a punitive strike over Damascus' suspected usage of chemical weapons, however, the probe has only just started and no solid proof has been yet presented by the West.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova has condemned the military action.

The White Helmets are not the sole source of information about the Douma attack.

"American and other Western media must understand their responsibility for what happened", Ms Zakharova wrote.

No "final decision" yet on Syria response, White House says
Trump said: 'He's now president for life. "The president feels he's done a great job and wishes him the best". Trump wrote in a Thursday morning tweet that an attack could happen "very soon or not so soon at all".

Zuckerberg clarified that his company tracked browsing activity to deliver targeted ads, but it did not hold onto the user's data. Even with these guides, it can still be confusing to understand exactly how much these sites know about you and your network.

The suspected poison gas attack in Douma, which killed more than 40 people, has drawn global outrage and prompted the United States and its allies to consider a military strike on Syria, something Moscow has strongly warned against.

The strike came about after Syrian forces cleared of terrorist groupings all of Eastern Ghouta, which had become stronghold of salafist militants with the backing of Washington, London and Paris.

"Our warnings have been left unheard", he said.

Lavrov noted that Russian and USA militaries have a hotline to prevent incidents, adding that it's not clear if it would be sufficient amid mounting tensions. "Again, we are being threatened".

"Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible", he added.

The chairman of the global affairs committee of Russia's Upper House of Parliament, Mr Konstantin Kosachev, described the air strikes as a groundless attack on a sovereign government, Interfax said.

The Russian Defence Ministry said Saturday that none of the Western strikes in Syria had hit areas near to Russia's air and naval bases.

"We are interested in meeting experts there to carry out necessary tests".
