Douma ‘gas attack’ aftermath footage shows opposition groups moving victims’ bodies

US President Donald Trump cast doubt on Thursday, April 12, over the timing of his threatened strike on Syria in response to a reported poison gas attack, while France said it had proof of Syria's guilt but needed to gather more information.

Last week, a gas attack in Syria had killed at least 60 people and injured several others.

A USA attack on Syria would be in a response to a chemical weapons attack on anti-government rebels, one that Trump and other officials blame on leader Bashar Assad.

Both Syria and Russian Federation have said reports of the attack were fabricated by rebels and rescue workers in the town and have accused the USA of seeking to use it as a pretext to attack the government.

The attacks were described by the Pentagon as precise and aimed exclusively at the regime's chemical weapons facilities.

"The evil and the despicable attack left mothers and fathers, infants and children thrashing in pain and gasping for air". "These are not actions of a man, they are crimes of a monster instead".

"Never said when an attack on Syria would take place".

He added: "'We have irrefutable evidence that this was another staged event, and that the secret services of a certain state that is now at the forefront of a Russophobic campaign was involved in this staged event".

President Trump's order to strike Syria Friday night was as predictable as his Saturday morning tweet storms.

Syria and Allies Ready for War If Trump Attacks, Official Says
Jeremy Corbyn has condemned Donald Trump's rhetoric on Syria and said: 'More bombing, more killing, more war will not save life'. The White House said Wednesday that the administration had not finalized its decisions about a course of action in Syria.

The president is also speaking with allies in Great Britain and France about a possible coordinated effort, though German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday her country would not participate in possible military action in Syria.

"We can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom or anywhere else in our world", Ms May said, referencing the recent nerve gas attack on a Russian double agent in England.

"Donald Trump is an unpredictable and risky ally".

Trump said that he made a decision to take action because last weekend's action by Bashar Al-Assad "was a significant attack against his own people", and "not the actions of a man, they are crimes of a monster instead".

USA intelligence shows a Russian claim that the attack was faked was false, Sanders said.

"The nations of the world can be judged by the friends that they keep", he continued. He asked that "responsible nations" join in condemning the Assad regime.

"I think it is completely understandable that the president would feel that, given this crisis situation, he would need to be at home", Freeland said, adding that the Canadian delegation is looking forward to its meeting with Pence.

As he spoke, Syria's air defence systems swung into action, according to state television reports. The combined American, British and French response to these atrocities will integrate all instruments of our national power.

May said she had authorised British armed forces "to conduct coordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capability". "Establishing this deterrent is a vital national security interest of the United States". "Regimes that think they can do everything they want, including the worst things that violate worldwide law, cannot be allowed to act".
