Syria To Allow Chemical Weapons Inspectors, After Barring Them Earlier This Week

US to announce new economic sanctions on Russia

Just before dawn on Saturday, the sounds of massive explosions and the roar of warplanes rang out across Damascus for about 45 minutes.

Thirty-four chemical attacks - the majority the result of chlorine use - are confirmed to have taken place inside Syria since 2013 and before the latest atrocity in Douma, according to the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic.

"We can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised - either within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom or elsewhere". British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson said that the attack on Syria was totally correct, and thanked the global support for that military action. "We insist on the need to complete their work as soon as possible and to present their conclusions to the OPCW Member States", he said.

The allies said they were responding to Syria's chemical-weapons attack on a rebel-held suburb of Damascus on April 7 that killed dozens of civilians.

The prime minister said Mr Corbyn's demand that the United Nations should endorse any British military intervention amounted to giving Russian Federation a veto over British foreign policy.

In a separate interview with Fox News, Haley warned Assad that the USA would launch new missile strikes against his government if he carries out another chemical weapons attack.

The US envoy to the OPCW has expressed concern that Russian Federation had visited the site and "may have tampered with it" to impede the investigation - an allegation Russian Federation has rejected.

"It is our understanding the Russians may have visited the attack site."

"I am confident the Syrian regime conducted a chemical attack on innocent people in this last week, yes. It was about a limited and targeted effective strike that sought to alleviate the humanitarian suffering of the Syrian people by degrading the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capability and deterring their use", explained the British PM.

It also slammed the United States, saying the weekend strikes by the US, France and Britain on three facilities in Syria were a bid "to undermine the credibility" of the mission.

Russian Federation is denying any attempt to prevent access or scrub the site and is instead blaming the delay on the USA led airstrikes.

Syrian and Russian government officials said 75 missiles were downed by Syrian air defenses promoting President bashar Assad to call the US -led operation a failure and praising the Soviet air defense system.

Recovering the Yarmouk camp and neighbouring areas south of the city would give Mr Assad complete control over Syria's capital.
