They did not identify any victims or provide details on the impact of the attacks.

Douma was a rebel stronghold at the time of the attack on 7 April and is now under the control of the Syrian government and Russian military.

Britain, France and the United States have primarily cited publicly available open-source information and unspecified intelligence as evidence for the chemical assault and in turn for the US -led airstrikes that were launched before global inspectors had investigated. "What did take place was the staged thing", he added.

United Nations officials in NY disputed the claim.

Australia has joined the United States and UK in publicly blaming Russian Federation for a "malicious" global cyber-attack past year. We are not clear on that yet. While the USA position toward Russian Federation is now becoming tougher, perhaps at least it is consistent compared to what it has been for the last 15 months. And I am happy to show evidence if I can. However, the White House spokesperson said that no decision had been made.

"We don't have full insight into the scope of the compromise", said U.S. Department of Homeland Security cybersecurity official Jeanette Manfra.

Despite the breach, the government said there was "no indication Australian information has been successfully compromised".

Less than a week after pro-Bashar al-Assad forces killed over 70 people in an alleged chemical weapons attack, President Donald Trump authorized a series of "precision" missile strikes against the country's chemical weapons manufacturing facilities. The official stressed the "obvious difficulty" of collecting evidence on the ground and suggested the Russians "cleaned it up" very quickly after the attack.

May said "reliable intelligence" indicated that Syrian military officials coordinated the use of chlorine in the attack.

However, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said it eroded the convention that MPs were given a vote on military action.

It is barred from having, storing or using nerve agents, and while it is permitted to possess chlorine for civilian uses, is banned from using that chemical as a weapon.

He worked for the news service Noviy Den (New Day) and recently wrote on the deaths of employees of the so-called "Wagner Group", the private army Moscow is using in Syria.

Investigators from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons have not yet gained access to Douma, where the deadly attack occurred a week ago, OPCW Director-General Ahmet Üzümcü said.

The U.S.' declaration that the overnight missile strikes against Syria would be limited and a "one-time shot" may tamp down some of the risk to oil prices spiking when markets open Monday.

"The United Nations has provided the necessary clearances for the OPCW team to go about its work in Douma", said U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric.
