Haley Blasts Russia for Blocking US-Backed Resolution on Syria Chemical Attack

However, the Syrian government and Russian Federation deny that Douma, the last rebel-held stronghold near Damascus was attacked with chemical weapons.

Swedish Ambassador Olof Skoog called Russia's veto a "tragic déjà vu".

The Russians ambassador to Lebanon further said that Russia would not hesitate to take military actions against the United States if U.S. target Syria, endangering lives of Russian military personals.

Trump's tweet was presumably in response to a threat from Russia's ambassador to Lebanon, in which the diplomat said that the Russian military would defend its ally and knock down any incoming missiles.

"Our relationship with Russian Federation is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War", wrote Trump. He said he was referring to a statement by Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Russian armed forces chief of staff.

"Very calm and calculated with a big focus on open and fair trade with China, the coming North Korea meeting and, of course, the vicious gas attack in Syria", Trump tweeted early in the morning.

Was this tweet a purposeful kick-off of a missile launch?

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

The United Nations Security Council rejected a counter resolution drafted by Russian Federation on investigating the use of chemical weapons in Syria. "We held open and transparent negotiations so every delegation could provide their input, and we went the extra mile for one council member", she said. That's where the USA said planes had taken off before carrying out a chemical weapons attack on civilians in a nearby town, Khan Shaykhun.

Putin, Netanyahu speak, discuss Syria
Israel is on high alert for possible Iranian retaliation after an Israeli airstrike on a Syrian air base Monday. All three countries have blamed Monday's air strike on Israel.


Shamanov emphasized that a retaliatory Russian strike could target USA navy ships and aircraft.

President Donald Trump lamented the poor state of relations between the US and Russian Federation moments after warning the country he would strike Syria despite their protests.

Meanwhile, President Trump is weighing a possible military response.

A second Russian resolution that only supported the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons fact-finding mission in Syria also failed to pass.

"Russia is holding the Syrian people to political ransom by supporting a regime responsible for at least four heinous chemical attacks against its people".
