Trump warns Russian Federation about shooting down missiles in Syria: 'Get ready'

British PM says will speak with Donald Trump regarding Syria chemical attack

"I don't know for sure, but I know it would embolden others if this goes unchecked".

Amidror told reporters a US strike in Syria could be used by Iran as a smokescreen "to do something against Israel".

French President Emmanuel Macron said his nation, the USA and Britain will decide how to respond.

President Donald Trump appeared to fire a warning shot at Russian Federation on Wednesday morning, saying via Twitter that the country should "get ready" for missiles fired at Syria and that it should not "be partners with a Gas Killing Animal".

A rival Russian bid to create a new inquiry into chemical weapons attacks in Syria failed after the draft resolution only received six votes in favour.

Trump cancelled a planned trip to Latin America where he was due on Friday to focus instead on responding to the Syria incident, the White House said.

The Douma incident has thrust Syria's conflict back to the forefront of the worldwide stage, pitting Washington and Moscow against each other once again. We tell them. We're sending something else.

Cafarella said the United States must decide how far it wants to go in terms of hitting Iranian proxy forces near USA positions in eastern Syria, or even targeting Russian-supported facilities.

He also said a clash "should be ruled out and therefore we are ready to hold negotiations". The brutal tactics pursued mainly by the regime, which have included the use of chemical weapons, sieges, mass executions and torture against civilians have led to war crimes investigations.

However, Zasypkin said that a clash "should be ruled out" and that Russian Federation was "ready to hold negotiations".

In a letter to the Prime Minister, SNP defence spokesman Stewart McDonald said MPs must have a say over any change to the role of United Kingdom forces in Syria.

The Syrian pound lost almost 10 percent of its value on prospects of an American attack, going from about 430 Syrian pounds to the dollar last week to 469 Wednesday.

A similar assessment was delivered earlier on Wednesday by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, which said that pro-Syrian government forces were emptying main airports and military air bases.

The US, Israel and Jordan were to launch attacks "from several fronts", the report claims, but "rapid, major victories" by the Syrian army destroyed the plan. There was no immediate confirmation from the Damascus regime.

Zasypkin's comments, in an interview with a Hizbollah-affiliated TV channel, are the "sternest Russian warning yet against American strikes", says the Telegraph.

The Eurocontrol airspace organisation said the European Aviation Safety Agency had sent a "rapid alert notification" that flight operations needed to consider the possibility of air or missile strikes into Syria. The United States gave a swift response, and I expect that will happen again.

Bolivia has asked for the United Nations Security Council to meet on Thursday "on the escalation of rhetoric regarding Syria and these threats of unilateral military action", Bolivia's UN ambassador, Sacha Sergio Llorentty Soliz, said on Wednesday, hours after US President Donald Trump warned of missile attacks in a post on Twitter.

In its statement, the Foreign Ministry, repeated its line that Washington's allegations were "unsubstantiated" and that the alleged chemical attack is being used as a pretext to target Syria.

The Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad is blamed by the Joint Investigative Mechanism for the sarin attack on opposition-held Khan Sheikhoun that killed dozens of people.

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

At a separate event in Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he hoped "common sense" would prevail in world diplomacy following a furious tweet from Trump warning that "missiles will be coming".
