United States and Russian Federation both using 'deconfliction' hotline, says Moscow

United States and Russian Federation both using 'deconfliction' hotline, says Moscow

"The conflict in Syria is predetermined, to my mind".

If the United States action follows the pattern of a previous punitive strike on Syria a year ago, it will begin with a salvo of cruise missiles fired from American warships in the Mediterranean, as Trump implied when he tweeted they would be "nice, new and 'smart'".

"Even if he (Trump) fires what he calls smart bombs, at us they will be stupid bombs because they will backfire on him and Syrians will be stronger", al-Issa said. "You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!"

On the one hand, the tweet could be put down to Trump's unique and unconventional way of communicating, which infuriates the Washington establishment and delights his supporters.

"If there is a USA missile attack, we - in line with both [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and Russia's chief of staff's remarks - will shoot down USA rockets and even the sources that launched the missiles", he said, according to Al Jazeera.

"The issue is not so much risks, as much as it is the calibration that the United States is seeking", said Mr Bokhari.

The remarks by Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, followed claims by French President Emmanuel Macron of "proof" that Syria used chemical weapons in the attack and a declaration that France will respond at a "time of our choosing".

Asked if he had seen enough evidence to blame Assad, Mattis said: "We're still working on this". "We will not leave our houses and our army is ready to retaliate". "Big price..." Trump further added on Twitter.

Which ships, aircraft, missiles and troops will be used against Syria? "We are very concerned when a thing like that can happen".

CNN reporting indicates that NY prosecutors were also seeking information about payments made to two women who alleged that they had affairs with Trump a decade before the election. In Damascus, the foreign ministry accused the U.S., which has supported some rebel groups in the Syrian civil war, of using fabrications and lies as an excuse to hit its territory.

Syrian government forces have taken full control over the town of Douma, the last rebel stronghold in Eastern Ghouta, according to Russian military officials.

A top leader of Jaish al-Islam, a group which controlled Douma for years, told AFP it was Saturday's attack that forced them to accept a Russian-brokered deal and evacuate.

Pro-Assad militants, and some Syrian government forces, are moving people and equipment out of the way ahead of an impending attack by the United States.

Syrian opposition activists and medics have said that the suspected gas attack last week killed dozens of people in Douma, a town outside Syria's capital that was then controlled by Syrian rebels.

But she says, "No final decision has been made".

She also ordered British submarines to move within missile range of Syria in readiness for strikes against the Syrian military that could begin as early as Thursday night, the Daily Telegraph newspaper reported.

While the US, France and Britain have the latest-technology cruise missiles, the presence of Russia's S-400 air defense system in Syria argues for caution.
