Syria UN envoy says UN security team visited Douma on Tuesday

Haley U.S. Troops Will Not Leave Syria Until We’ve Accomplished Three Goals

Nauert said she was aware of reports from Syria that inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons had been able to see the site but "our understanding is that the team has not entered Douma".

The U.S. ambassador in Moscow, Jon Huntsman, said in a video, "Before we took action, the United States communicated with" Russia to "reduce the danger of any Russian or civilian casualties". He denied any chemical weapons attack had occurred, accusing Britain of staging the attack.

On Monday, OPCW Director-General Ahmet Uzumcu said Syrian and Russian authorities had blocked its inspectors from going to Douma and instead offered them 22 people to interview as witnesses.

The three allies on Saturday presented a draft Security Council resolution just hours after carrying out military strikes on three targets they said were linked to Syria's chemical weapons program.

The Russian military also claimed Syria shot down the cruise missiles that were launched at a Syrian air base.

"It is possible to conclude that this laboratory was used by illegal armed groups to produce poisonous substances", Rodionov said.

"We were brought in with a government escort and shown the areas where the chemical attack allegedly happened and we got to speak with residents in the area".

The reported attack led to Western airstrikes against the Syrian government over the weekend.

"The Russian President once again stressed that the actions of a group of Western countries that committed an act of aggression against the Syrian Arab Republic grossly violated the norms of global law, including the UN Charter, and caused significant damage to the process of peaceful settlement of the Syrian crisis", a statement by the Russian government said.

A diplomatic source in The Hague said the experts did not enter Douma.

James Rodriguez sees Ronaldo as goal-scoring machine
We want to make the final and we'll go out there against Real with our sights set firmly on that. "I am with Bayern for James". Real Madrid have reached an agreement with Manchester United over star goalkeeper David de Gea, a report claims.

Earlier on Tuesday, the mission had appeared in question.

Shayrat air base was targeted a year ago in a U.S. cruise missile attack in response to a chemical attack that killed at least 70 people, including children, on the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun.

U.S., British and French forces pounded Syria with air strikes early on Saturday in retaliation for the suspected April 7 chemical weapons attack in Douma, which they blame on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government.

Syria's air defences have confronted a new "aggression", shooting down missiles over the central region of Homs, according to state-run media.

He denied that Russian Federation was hampering the mission and suggested the approval was held up because of the Western air strikes.

But Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov denied any interference and again insisted there was no attack.

Syrian activists said more than 40 people were killed in the alleged attack.

When they arrive at the site on Wednesday, it will be 11 days since the attack.

Separately, the AP spoke to a medic who was among those who later were evacuated to northern Syria.

Another senior administration official said Haley had gotten a little bit ahead of herself by saying more sanctions were coming, but not by much.
