Russian Federation vetoes United Nations resolution on Syria chemical attack

Russian Federation vetoes United Nations resolution on Syria chemical attack

Regarding the intention of United State President Donald Trump to withdraw from Syria, Lieberman said that the U.S.is Israel's "greatest friend".

Trump said, "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". The move followed Russia's rejection of a U.S. draft resolution at the United Nations that sought to create a new expert group that would determine responsibility for the attacks.

"We're talking about humanity and it can't be allowed to happen", told Mr. Trump to reporters at the start of a cabinet meeting.

"We can not allow atrocities like that".

He promised a decision on a possible military response within 24 to 48 hours, "probably by the end of today". They are considering a military retaliation, just like the one they responded with to a similar assault previous year.

"Heavy flight of U.S. & coalition aircraft over the Syria-Iraq border", said a journalist on the ground, according to the UK's Daily Express.

"The eradication of the regime's air defense systems would shift the balances", said Molahafci, adding that such an offensive would strike a major blow to Assad's forces. "So we're looking at that very strongly and very seriously" said Trump. "Everybody is going to pay a price". Washington felt the pressure, especially from France. If Trump decides to proceed quickly, the most likely partner would be France rather than Britain, because of concerns about obtaining permission from Parliament, said the official, who wasn't authorized to discuss the planning publicly and requested anonymity.

At the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday, Washington and Moscow opposed each other's rival motions to set up an global investigation into chemical weapons attacks in Syria. They also agreed to coordinate and carry out "a strong, joint response".

Trump was to meet late in the day with senior national security aides, and no action was "off the table", the president said. US Defence Secretary James Mattis has also cancelled travel plans. "And so, working with our allies and partners from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to Qatar and elsewhere, we are going to address this issue".

"The Trump administration is filling the Middle East void created by the Obama administration". Iran vowed to retaliate the attack, which reportedly claimed the lives of at least seven Iranian nationals. Israel was accused by Russian Federation and Syria of carrying out the strike but has not officially confirmed its involvement.

Amos Yadlin, a former Israeli fighter pilot and ex-head of Israeli military intelligence, stopped short of saying Israel was responsible for the airstrike.

"A small punitive strike like a year ago - basically a military slap on the wrist - would most likely hit military targets directly affiliated with the Syrian chemical weapons programme: factories, warehouses or airfields". It left 49 victims.

Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia accused the United States of "planting this resolution" as a "pretext" to justify action against Syria.

Separately, the al-Masdar online newspaper says the Russian Navy's Black Sea fleet has also been placed on high alert after a United States destroyer was deployed within striking range of Syria. Abdul-Hamid Alyousef, 29, holds his twin babies who were killed during the chemical weapons attack last April 4.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday warned of a quick, forceful response once responsibility was established, although he appeared to have little doubt it was the work of Assad's Russian-backed forces.

It was not immediately clear whether the announcement would delay or prevent a USA strike in Syria.

"If they're innocent why aren't they allowing people to go in and prove" it, he asked.

The warning from Moscow came during a divided meeting of the UN Security Council in which a proposal to open a new inquiry into the alleged attack failed to pass. However, Russia - a nation that holds the so-called "veto power" in the UNSC - might prevent any action from being taken.
