Trump warning: 'Get ready' for United States missile strike on Syria

He previously covered the Trump White House.

The CD drafted the Chemical Weapons Convention in 1992, which the U.S., Israel and Western democracies are accusing Syria of violating several times, including, most recently, last Saturday with a toxic gas attack in Douma that saw 42 people killed and scores more struggling to breathe and foaming at the mouth.

Tass quoted Zakharova as saying, "Smart missiles must strike terrorists, not the legitimate government that has been fighting global terrorism on its territory for several years".

The Syrian government and Russian Federation say the reports are bogus.

Syria's Foreign Ministry said Wednesday that his threats are "reckless" and endanger worldwide peace and security.

"We're still assessing the intelligence, ourselves and our allies", Mattis said.

"There can be no role now for investigations by the United Nations", Mrs May said.

Meanwhile, Turkey's Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım urged the USA and Russian Federation to cooperate in the Middle East to relieve the wounds of civilians and ensure the territorial integrity of Syria and Iraq without going hand in hand with terror organizations.

The team had just returned to campus days earlier after being eliminated from the NCAA tournament by Duke University. The woman reportedly had "no intention of having any physical contact with any of the people present at the party".

This strategy was exactly what he criticised Barack Obama for doing in 2013.

"The team is preparing to deploy to Syria shortly", it said in a statement. "But here he is taunting [Vladimir] Putin, just like he did when he tweeted to Kim Jong Un - my button is bigger than yours".

"The context of the relations has changed radically in the past year: We're in a state of a real and tangible Cold War", Lukyanov said. "There is no reason for this".

"Get ready Russian Federation", tweeted US President Donald Trump, warning that missiles "will be coming" at Syria in retaliation for this weekend's alleged chemical weapons attack against civilians in Syria.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria". The threat applies not only to the missiles, but to their launch sites, she says.

Zasypkin also said that any hostilities with Washington should be avoided and Moscow was ready for negotiations. The Syrian government has denied the accusations.

Trump on Tuesday warned that the USA was prepared to take "forceful" action.

He had repeatedly said he would not telegraph military moves toward foes, including North Korea and Islamic State.

Chicharito rescues derby point for West Ham

"Trump said, referring to Moscow's alliance with Assad".

The tweets will no doubt put the pressure on Theresa May who has yet to back air strikes on Syria even though she said on Tuesday that she would not "allow the use of chemical weapons to continue".

"If it's the Russians, if it's Syria, if it's Iran, if it's all of them together, we'll figure it out", he said. We tell them. We're sending something else. Russia vetoed a USA text, while two Russian-drafted resolutions failed to get a minimum nine votes to pass. "Are we going to develop a strategy in Syria, because we don't have one now".

Trump was reacting to a warning from Assad's main ally Russian Federation on Tuesday that any U.S. missiles fired at Syria over the deadly assault on a rebel enclave would be shot down and the launch sites targeted. In the past Trump has vowed to stand up to Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Macron, asked whether France would take military action, said his country would continue discussing technical and strategic information with USA and British allies and "in the coming days we will announce our decision".

Eurocontrol said that air-to-ground and/or cruise missiles could be used within that period and there was a possibility of intermittent disruption of radio navigation equipment. "As of today some 60,000 people have returned to their homes", Lieutenant-General Viktor Poznikhir said at a briefing in Moscow. Rami Abdulrahman, the head of the organization, tells NPR it has documented 21 cases where people died "from suffocation", and could not confirm the cause.

Doctors and witnesses have said victims showed symptoms of poisoning, possibly by a nerve agent, and reported the smell of chlorine gas. Trump had on Monday warned of a quick, forceful response once responsibility for the Syria attack was established.

About 500 people may have been affected by a suspected chemical attack last week on Syria's rebel-held town of Douma, according to the World Health Organization.
