Donald Trump's threats clear Syrian regime warplanes from the skies

Asked about Moscow's reaction to a possible US strike on Syria, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russian Federation still hopes that all parties in the conflict will refrain from taking "steps that could gravely harm the fragile situation in the region".

Amid the tensions over Syria, there's another shakeup in President Trump's national security team.

"We have proof that last week ... chemical weapons were used, at least with chlorine, and that they were used by the regime of Bashar al-Assad", Macron said, without offering details of any evidence.

But Mattis said collecting evidence becomes more hard as time passes.

The US State Department said the United States has proof at "a very high level of confidence" that the Syrian government carried out the attack but is still working to identify the mix of chemicals used. The government, however, said evacuations from Douma were ongoing and no Syrian government forces had entered the town.

"We will not sacrifice the global order we have collectively built to the Russian desire to protect its ally at all costs", said Ambassador Karen Pierce.

The protest organisers said: "A conflict that started out as a civil war has escalated into a multi-actor proxy war with money, weapons and fighters flooding in from all over the world to persue their own interests". A joint military operation, possibly with France rather than the U.S. in the lead, could send a message of worldwide unity about enforcing the prohibitions on chemical weapons.

In a statement released on Thursday night, a Downing Street spokeswoman said: "The Prime Minister spoke to President Trump about Syria this evening".

Britain's May won backing from her senior ministers to take unspecified action with the United States and France to deter further use of chemical weapons by Syria.

The Russian military claims the alleged attack was staged and directed by Britain.

A day before a team from the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog was to arrive in Douma, just east of Damascus, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj.

"We have. evidence that proves Britain was directly involved in organizing this provocation", defense ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said. Reports surfaced that the lack of resolution was due to a rift between two camps in the Trump team.

Opposition Labour Party and other opposition parties have called on the prime minister to respect a recent convention that the UK House of Commons approves any military action overseas.

US President Donald Trump speaks during his meeting with automobile leaders in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington, Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017.

US intelligence shows a Russian claim that the attack was faked was false, Sanders said. More broadly, he doubted the wisdom of bombing. Medical sources and activists in Syria said blood, urine and hair follicle samples were smuggled in batches to Turkey after rebel groups and their families were pushed out of the area by the Assad regime, CNN reported earlier on Friday.

In the war of words, he even went as far as saying the U.S. relationship with Russian Federation was "worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War".

Vassily Nebenzia, Moscow's ambassador to the United Nations, said he "cannot exclude" war between the United States and Russian Federation and urged Washington and its allies to refrain from military action against Syria. Russia's ambassador to Lebanon said any missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launching sites targeted - a stark warning of a potential major confrontation in Syria.
