US president Donald Trump has threatened military action in Syria following an alleged chemical weapons attack. In a tweet, he warned Russia that missiles "will be coming" to Syria. A Kremlin spokesman dismissed Trump's "Twitter-diplomacy."
US President Donald Trump has vowed to "forcefully" respond to an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria. Washington's top UN envoy said "the world must see justice done" after dozens of people were killed in Douma.
The death toll is expected to rise after a suspected chemical weapons attack in one of the last remaining rebel strongholds in Syria, eastern Ghouta. The government and its ally, Russia, have denied the reports.
US President Donald Trump threatened to fire missiles at Syria following threats from Moscow to counter any attack. Earlier Russian officials said they would shoot down any US missiles.
The State Department has said it has evidence the Syrian regime was behind last week's chemical weapons attack on Douma. As Trump weighs his next move, the US has started moving ships to within striking range of Syria.
