Airlines warned to stay cautious on possible Syria air strikes

Trump was reacting to a warning from Assad's main ally Russian Federation on Tuesday that any USA missiles fired at Syria over the deadly assault on a rebel enclave would be shot down and the launch sites targeted.

A similar chemical attack a year ago that killed more than 80 people in northern Syria prompted a limited US retaliation that targeted an air base from which aircraft involved in the strike likely deployed from.

Later Wednesday morning, Mr. Trump tweeted that Washington's relationship with Moscow is "worse now than it has ever been". There is no reason for this. Stop the arms race?'

It is worth mentioning that the White House occupant fired a series of tweets and labelled Syrian president Bashar al Assad "animal" for the "mindless" chemical attack allegedly involving chlorine gas on Sunday.

As someone who once criticized President Barack Obama for offering public timelines on American military engagement overseas, US President Donald Trump may have backed himself into a corner following his own promise to respond, and respond harshly, to the deadly chemical attacks in Syria.

Moscow's threat to down USA missiles came from its ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin, who said he was referring to a statement by President Vladimir Putin and the Russian armed forces chief of staff.

Trump said earlier this month - before the weekend's suspected chemical attack on civilians at the hands of the Assad regime - that he wanted to withdraw USA troops from Syria.

'Get ready Russian Federation, because they will be coming, nice and new and "smart!" The trip was supposed to have started on Friday, though the White House declined to say whether that timing indicated a strike was more likely at the end of the week.

The Pentagon said on Wednesday that it "does not comment on potential future military action".

Earlier, President Donald Trump warned Russian Federation about supporting Bashar al Assad in Syria, and said United States missiles "will be coming" in relatiation for a chemical weapons attack on civilians.

Sergey Lavrov, Russia's foreign minister, said Russian specialists had found no trace of a chemical attack on Douma. Acting Secretary of State John Sullivan spoke by phone Monday with British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.

Global airlines said Wednesday they were modifying their flight plans after a warning from Europe's air safety watchdog about potential military strikes on Syria in the coming days.

She faces pressure to secure support from the Commons, which is now in recess for Easter, for involving Britain in air strikes but has the power to take the decision without the backing of MPs.

"If we're going to strike, we first need to verify exactly what happened so that we are nearly certain who is responsible and (then) we strike without warning", he said.

Since becoming President, Trump has broken his own rule of not publicly relaying U.S. military strategy. At a photo-taking session during a meeting with his Dutch counterpart, Mattis was asked by a reporter whether he had seen enough evidence to blame the Syrian government.

"The only thing I worry about is that it's not going to happen", Corker said on Capitol Hill.

While Trump has made clear he believes the Syrian regime is responsible for the attack, observers have struggled to gain access to the scene and neither the USA nor its allies have been able to provide firm evidence of culpability.

Syrian opposition activists and rescuers said poison gas was used on the rebel-held town near the capital, an allegation strongly denied by the Assad government.

"History will record that, on this day, Russian Federation chose protecting a monster over the lives of the Syrian people", Haley said, referring to Assad.

Syrian President Bashar Assad is backed by Putin, which prompted Russian Federation to issue the warning over United States missiles.

The World Health Organization (WHO) said in a statement Wednesday that its partners reported an estimated 500 patients had sought help at medical facilities "exhibiting signs and symptoms consistent with exposure to toxic chemicals".

Russia's ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin, told Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV station that any missiles fired at Syria would be shot down.
