He went on to say that the information about the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria usually emerges amid reports of the Syrian army's successes, adding that it was Saturday night when a large number of militants with members of their families were evacuated from Douma.

Russian Federation immediately denied the British allegations and said the OPCW visit to Douma had been delayed because of the Western airstrikes against the Syrian regime early Saturday morning.

Douma is the largest town of the suburbs known as eastern Ghouta and its capture marks the biggest victory for President Bashar Assad's forces since the conflict began seven years ago.

United States officials said that Tomahawk cruise missiles and other types of bombs were used in the attack.

Moscow and Damascus claimed two Israeli fighter planes carried out that airstrike "remotely from Lebanese territory". Earlier this month, four Iranian military personnel were killed in an airstrike on the Syrian T4 air base in Homs.

But "strangers entered as we were in a state of chaos and spread a rumour among people there had been a chemical attack, and people became alarmed". Washington says it has confirmed that chlorine gas was used, and has unconfirmed suspicion that nerve agents may also have been used. Symptoms such as convulsions, in addition to the dozens of deaths and hundreds of injuries reported, suggest sarin, which is a much more efficient weapon, they said.

Jaish al-Islam has said it only agreed to the deal because of the Syrian government's purported use of toxic chemicals on Douma, which medics said killed more than 40 people.

Worldwide officials are working to try to confirm the suspected poison gas attack on Douma.

Chemical weapons experts are due to arrive in Douma on Wednesday to probe an alleged poison gas attack, Russian officials said, as the United States voiced fears Moscow may already have "tampered with" evidence at the site.

In remarks that could indicate an attempt to bog down the OPCW team, Russia's deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said the inspectors will not be allowed to access the site until they produce an appropriate United Nations permit.

The four nations confronted each other intense emergency talks at the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague as inspectors prepare for a hard and risky mission. It is to determine whether chemical weapons were used, but will not assign blame.
