Haley: Russian hands 'covered in blood' from Syria attack

Russian President Vladimir Putin talks with President Donald

Speaking to reporters at the start of the meeting, Trump said the United States had a lot of options militarily on Syria and expected to make a decision on Monday night or shortly thereafter. In our world, we can't let that happen. "We'll be making that decision very quickly, probably by the end of today".

Israel fears Iran could use Syria's territory to stage attacks on it.

According to CBN News National Security Correspondent Erik Rosales, just hours before the United Nations meeting, Secretary of Defense James Mattis released a statement saying the U.S.is not ruling anything out.

A limited USA airstrike against Syria - similar to a year ago - is unlikely to hurt President Bashar Assad's growing strength in his country or change the course of the civil war, analysts said Monday.

The Syrian government and Russian Federation have vehemently denied involvement in the attack and accused rebels in Douma of fabricating the chemical attack claims in order to hinder the army's advances and provoke worldwide military intervention.

She added: "Meetings are ongoing". More than 500 people showed symptoms consistent with a chemical attack, he said.

Robert Wood, U.S. ambassador to the Conference on Disarmament, says "Syria has neither the global credibility nor any moral authority" to lead the forum, "given what they have done to their own people with use of chemical weapons".

"From what we hear now, I am afraid they are looking for a military option, which is very, very unsafe", he told reporters following an emergency council meeting.

"That will give the U.S. and possibly France an excuse for military action".

Mrs May sidestepped a question on whether Parliament would be recalled from recess to debate any military intervention.

"Armed force under mendacious pretext against Syria, where, at the request of the legitimate government of a country, Russian troops have been deployed, could lead to grave repercussions", he said.

"I think that tells you something about what the rules of engagement were at the time", Cafarella said.

"I urge the Security Council, in accordance with its own mandate, to maintain worldwide peace and security and uphold global law to, for God's sake, ensure a mechanism is found to investigate this allegation and attribute responsibilities".

"If it's Russian Federation, if it's Syria, if it's Iran, if it's all of them together, we'll figure it out and we'll know the answers quite soon", he told reporters earlier on Monday. Referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin, he added: "Everybody's going to pay a price - he will, everybody will".

As U.S. officials consider whether and how to respond, they are looking at what type of chemical agent was used.

Mr Johnson discussed the situation with acting U.S. secretary of state John Sullivan twice on Monday. We are here to discuss Syria tonight.

Syrian regime forces have carried out an offensive against Ghouta since February 18 that has killed more than 1,700 civilians and cornered rebels in their last holdout of Douma. They said the victims had foam on their mouths. Chilling videos and photos of bodies of children killed or injured by the attack spread over the Internet this weekend.

The United States fired missiles at the Shayrat air base a year ago in response to the killing of dozens of civilians in a sarin gas attack in an opposition-held town. Minutes later, the Israeli military attacked what it called the command-and-control center from which Iran had launched the drone, at the Syrian air base near Palmyra.
