Russian Federation calls an emergency session to discuss strikes on Syria

Russian Federation calls an emergency session to discuss strikes on Syria

"Did a chemical weapons attack happen?"

White House cyber security co-ordinator Rob Joyce said: "Once you own the router, you own all the traffic to include the ability to harvest credentials and passwords and essentially monitor all the traffic".

Russia's foreign ministry said today that Western strikes on Syria came as the country had "a chance of a peaceful future." the Russian government's response came after U.S., United Kingdom and France launched precision strikes on Syrian chemical research and storage facilities in the capital city of Damascus.

Russia's ambassador to the United Nations, Vassily Nebenzia, told reporters "The situation (in Syria) is very risky".

"It will be in defense of a bedrock worldwide norm that benefits all nations", Haley said.

The suspicions of tampering heightened concerns that the truth about the April 7 attack may never be known. "You don't rush decisions like this", Haley told reporters, adding that if there is haste "you make a mistake". "We are carrying out an assessment of the material damages", the official added. But Mattis and other members of his national security team cautioned Trump during the meeting that such a strategy could pull the U.S. into direct conflict with Russian Federation and Iran. "Russian Federation will demand a meeting of the U.N. Security Council, I think, for sure", Dzhabarov, who is the deputy head of Russia's foreign affairs committee, was quoted by RIA as saying.

Increasing regional jitters, Syrian anti-aircraft defenses shot down missiles fired at the Syrian air base of Shayrat in Homs province, Syrian state television said. "This is not a threat".

A day before a team from the global chemical weapons watchdog was to arrive in Douma, just east of Damascus, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj.

Mr Martin said: "This is the first time that in attributing a cyber attack to Russian Federation the United States and the UK have, at the same time, issued joint advice to industry about how to manage the risks from attacks".

While Trump himself remained silent on Syria on Friday, Macron - who has said France has proof that Assad's government used chemical weapons in the attack in Douma - spoke by phone with Putin.

He did not say what the evidence was.

"Russia condemns in the strongest possible terms the attack against Syria, where Russian military personnel are assisting the legitimate government in its counterterrorism efforts", Putin said in English language statement posted Saturday on the Kremlin's website.

Chemical weapons inspectors in Syria say they suspect the site of an alleged chemical attack has been tampered with, as pro-government media broadcast interviews with doctors from the area saying that no such assault had occurred and that the victims they treated were suffering from asthma.

Tuesday: Nebenzia told the U.N. Security Council that images and videos of children foaming at the mouth and dying were fake.

United States allies have offered strong words of support for Washington, but no clear military plans have yet emerged.

"... None of the missiles involved in this mission was not successfully struck the Syrian air defense, and there is no indication that were involved in the Russian air defense system", - stated in the message. "I really, really am".

Two days later, the fact-finding team said it has still not been granted permission by Syrian authorities to visit Douma, the town in the Eastern Ghouta suburbs of Damascus where the attack is said to have taken place.

So they'll be made fairly soon."Also on Thursday, US Secretary of Defence Jim Mattis told a congressional panel: "I believe there was a chemical attack and we are looking for the actual evidence."Russia has described the reports of a chemical attack as a "provocation" created to justify Western intervention".

Last month, Britain blamed Russian Federation for a nerve agent attack on an ex-spy and his daughter, accusations Russian Federation has vehemently denied.

During a week of tense sabre-rattling, Russian officials periodically warned the USA that a military response may spiral out of control to war.

"Syria indeed today represents the most serious threat to worldwide peace and security", Guterres said.

"This aggression will only lead to inflaming tensions in the world" and threatens worldwide security, the source added.

Haley kept up the pressure on Russian Federation.

It was "shameful" that a lack of accountability for the April 2017 attack on Khan Sheikhun "can only have reassured the Syrian regime that the worldwide community was not serious in its stated commitment to uphold the norm against chemical weapons use", he added.

She noted that In 2017, Moscow "killed" a Joint Investigative Mechanism, which the United Nations established in 2015 to investigate and assign accountability for chemical weapons use in Syria. "The US - the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons - has no moral right to blame other countries".

Russian Federation is Syria's most important military ally in the country's civil war. "If Russia had lived up to its commitment, there would be no chemical weapons in Syria, and we would not be here today".
