Russian Federation threatens retaliation as U.S. & its allies launch attack on Syria

"What we can see is targeting and some compromise", Manfra said, "but we need the owners and operators of those devices and systems to work with us to determine the extent of the actual compromise".

Although he didn't provide the evidence, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the Kremlin has "irrefutable data" that the attack in Douma, that killed at least 75 people, was staged.

Putin issued a short statement condemning the "aggressive act against a sovereign state", which essentially meant Russian Federation was not going to take any steps to support al-Assad except for calling a predictably useless meeting of the UN Security Council (Kremlin.ru, April 14).

Speaking to reporters in Moscow, Lavrov reiterated a strong warning to the West against military action in Syria, saying any such "adventures" in Syria would increase flows of refugees into Europe.

Russian Federation has repeatedly accused rebels of staging or spreading rumours of chemical attacks, but the involvement of Britain is a new claim.

West Ham substitute Carroll snatches late draw against Stoke
Oliver and his wife were subjected to social media threats over the incident that led to Juventus's elimination. Stoke looked set for a first win in 10 games when Peter Crouch took advantage of Joe Hart's fumble to score.

"They've got to look tough, like they're not letting this happen", Zilberman said, predicting that Russia's aggressive attitude would continue and US-Russia ties only degrade further.

Another US official familiar with how the US intelligence is unfolding regarding the attack tells CNN that the initial intelligence assessment that a chemical agent was used was based on viewing the videos and comparing the shown physical effects with what is known about chlorine and nerve agents.

While the disinformation campaign surrounding Syria is a Kremlin-led effort, Trump allies have played a major role in the success of the campaign by bringing Russia's propaganda to an American audience.

In the United Kingdom, cabinet ministers agreed that it was "highly likely" the Assad regime was responsible for the alleged attack and said the use of chemical weapons must not "go unchallenged".

The World Health Organization said that 43 people had died in Saturday's attack on Douma from "symptoms consistent with exposure to highly toxic chemicals", and more than 500 in all had been treated.

Gary Neville was cheering on from his living room in the early hours of the morning, United Kingdom time. And there are many more players, officials and support staff that have put this process together.

"I hope no one would dare to launch such an adventure now", Mr Lavrov said.

As a supporter of the Syrian regime, Russian Federation has a vested interest in coming to the aid of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, whether that means providing military support or launching an information war to undermine critics of the regime.

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. The government, however, said evacuations from Douma were ongoing and no Syrian government forces had entered the town. British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron said the United Kingdom and France had joined in the attack.

In Washington, both Democrats and Republicans have criticized President Trump for what they say is his reluctance to hold Russian Federation accountable for its hacking of the Democrats during the 2016 presidential election; American intelligence agencies have also blamed the Kremlin for those attacks.

A Syrian soldier films the damage of the Syrian Scientific Research Center which was attacked by US, British and French military strikes to punish President Bashar Assad for suspected chemical attack against civilians. Russian strikes on USA missile platforms were never a realistic option, despite rhetoric to the contrary coming from the Russian ambassador to Tunisia, who probably thought his remarks were a good career move (Moskovsky Komsomolets, April 11).

Browns not interested in Dez Bryant
