United States allies warn of action on suspected Syria chemical attack

US officials said military options were being developed.

Erdogan was quoted as saying: "We will determine the time".

Last month, a United Nations commission of inquiry released a report accusing the regime of committing war crimes in Eastern Ghouta, including the use of chemical weapons against civilians.

Earlier he told his Cabinet at a White House meeting that the USA would figure out who was responsible for the attack, whether it was Syria, Russia, Iran or "all of them together".

On Monday, Trump seemed to be leaning toward wading in deeper, suggesting the responsibility for the attack may go beyond the Assad regime.

Guterres says in a statement Tuesday that if confirmed, the use of such weapons would be a violation of global law.

The Syrian regime is to preside over a United Nations conference on disarmament next month, despite its consistent use of chemical weapons during a seven-year-old civil war - most recently on Saturday, when at least 42 people, including many children, were killed in a suspected toxic gas attack on the town of Douma that left many victims struggling to breathe and foaming at the mouth.

Erdogan said he would continue to hold discussions with Russia's president Vladimir Putin over the suspected chemical attack.

Haley accused Russian Federation of helping Assad avoid worldwide accountability.

The Syrian government, in a statement posted on the state-run news agency SANA, denied the allegations.

SANA reported that the missile attack on the T4 military air base in Homs province resulted in a number of casualties. Assad has in recent months brought swathes of territory back under his control thanks to heavy Russian involvement, as well as support from other forces such as the Iran-backed Lebanese Hezbollah militia. It said funerals will be held in the victims' cities of origin across the country.

Trump has been mulling a response to an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria over the weekend with military leaders and foreign counterparts.

The White House later qualified his remarks to say there was no timetable for withdrawal from Syria. At least 40 people were killed and hundreds more were injured.

TBI: Father confesses to killing 5-year-old Dickson boy
According to court documents, Daniels admitted to striking Joe Clyde "repeatedly. with [a] closed fist" until the boy died. TBI said its agents opened a criminal investigation on Friday at the request of District Attorney General Ray Crouch.

"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 politician, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about secret military movements, said the atmosphere and USA statements hint at a possible strike, "but there are no indications on the ground so far".

Russia's Defense Ministry claimed two Israeli F-15 warplanes launched eight guided missiles from Lebanese territory, targeting the T-4 base in central Syria.

Asked if it was about the airstrike, Bogdanov only said Russian diplomats want to talk about various issues related to the Syrian war, as well as bilateral relations.

The decision to cancel the trip - which comes as Trump boils in anger over the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of his personal attorney's office and hotel room, a move he derided as a "disgraceful situation" - was made on Monday evening, the person said.

US President Donald Trump said on Monday he would make a decision on how Washington would respond to the suspected chemical attack in Syria's Douma in 24 to 48 hours.

On Monday, Trump told a meeting of military leaders and national security advisers in Washington he would take a decision that night or shortly after on a response and that the United States had "a lot of options militarily" on Syria.

The Sound and Picture Organization, an activist collective in eastern Syria, said on Tuesday that Iranian fighters and members of Lebanon's Hezbollah group have evacuated their positions in the Boukamal area, near Iraq's border.

European countries on Monday have condemned the use of chemical weapons in Syria. The Syrian government's main ally, Russia, says the reports of the chemical attack are bogus.

At the UN, Haley reiterated Trump's comments that Russian Federation could "pay" as well, as divisions between Washington and Moscow were laid bare in the Security Council.

President Trump lashes out after the Federal Bureau of Investigation raids the office, home and hotel room of Michael Cohen, his personal lawyer-calling it "a witch hunt".

Lord Hague, who was foreign secretary when then prime minister David Cameron lost a Commons vote he wanted to back action in Syria, said the aftermath of the defeat left the United Kingdom "enfeebled spectators of one of the most destructive conflagrations of our time".
