After Syria attack, US-Russia tensions rise, but military confrontation fears ease

After Syria attack, US-Russia tensions rise, but military confrontation fears ease

Rebels in Syria's Eastern Ghouta surrendered their heavy weapons and their leader left the enclave, a monitor said, signalling the end of one of the bloodiest assaults of Syria's seven-year war. A United States guided-missile destroyer, the USS Donald Cook, is in the Mediterranean.

As ministers discussed the crisis yesterday, U.S. officials claimed to have evidence that chlorine gas and a nerve agent were used in a Syrian government attack on the town of Douma in Eastern Ghouta at the weekend that left around 70 dead.

Asked about Trump's tweet about an impending attack on Syria, former Defense Secretary William Cohen, who ran the Pentagon for President Bill Clinton, said on CNN that it "compromises the mission somewhat".

Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoi of the Russian military's General Staff said the strikes have not caused any casualties and Syrian military facilities targeted by the U.S., Britain and France have suffered only minor damage, the Associated Press reported.

A Downing Street spokesperson added: "They agreed it was vital that the use of chemical weapons did not go unchallenged, and on the need to deter the further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime".

The BBC reported that May was ready to give the go-ahead for Britain to take part in military action.

"Russia has trashed the credibility of the council", she said.

Russian Federation also warned the West against any "dangerous" moves on Syria as its rivals hesitated over possible strikes on the country which Moscow has warned could lead to "war".

But on Thursday, Trump tweeted: "Never said when an attack on Syria would take place".

In Syria Strikes, US Blurs Red Line For Intervention
In London , May said the West had tried "every possible" diplomatic means to stop Assad from using chemical weapons. She said Trump was "locked and loaded" to order more airstrikes if Assad conducts another poison gas attack.

The Russian foreign ministry said Moscow sought no escalation of the situation, but that it could not support "dishonest accusations" and had found no evidence of a chemical weapons attack in Douma. "But should the United States and our allies decide to act in Syria, it will be in defence of a principle on which we all agree", Haley told the UN Security Council.

The Russian president is condemning the airstrikes, and says they were against the United Nations charter.

"Again, we are being threatened", Russia's ambassador to the US, Anatoly Antonov, said in a statement.

The Ministry claims the air strikes were a response to the "success" of Al Assad's Syrian army in liberating their territory from worldwide terrorism.

They did not eliminate the probability for a US-Russia conflict, stating Moscow was quite anxious about "the risky escalation" also "aggressive policies" in which specific government bodys are making.

She added: "It's some of the worst piece of fake news we've yet seen from the Russian Federation propaganda machine". As the strikes by the coalition aimed merely Syrian facilities, Russian Federation hasn't considered the attack grave enough to undertake retaliatory measures.

But the Syria conflict is a complex web of overlapping wars which have drawn in several world powers, and the risk of miscalculation is as high as Trump's Twitter rhetoric is provocative.

Syria's Russian-supplied air defenses shot down an Israeli F-16 jet in February during a bombing run against what Israel described as Iranian-backed positions in Syria.

The Prime Minster, who has spoken with Mr Trump about Syria, won the backing of her ministers to deploy British forces against Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad's regime.
