Airlines warned about Syria air strikes as USA and allies ponder action

Airlines warned about Syria air strikes as USA and allies ponder action

Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov has also said that Moscow will table a United Nations resolution calling for an independent inquiry into the attack in Douma.

Senior figures in British politics have called for UK Prime Minister Theresa May to take military action against the Syrian regime following an alleged chemical weapons attack near Damascus.

Russian Federation has also tabled a draft resolution for vote on Tuesday.

European airspace authorities have warned aircraft to be careful over the next days when flying close to Syria because of possible military action against Mr Assad's forces.

It's not clear how the OPCW inspection in Syria would impact the timing of potential USA military action.

In a tweet responding to the threat, President Trump said: "Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria". "President Trump will not attend the 8th Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru or travel to Bogota, Colombia as originally scheduled", Sanders said in a statement.

Less than a day after President Trump threatened an imminent military strike against Syria, war monitors there say government forces and their allies are on alert and taking precautionary measures at military bases across the country amid fears of an attack by the United States.




Syria on Wednesday called US threats to attack it "reckless" and said they display a lack of "wisdom and logic" and endanger global peace and security. United States President Donald Trump cancelled his first official visit to Latin America this week to focus on the suspected attack. "We have reached the moment when the world must see justice done".

In April 2017, Donald Trump ordered strikes on a military base in Syria in response to a gas attack blamed on the Syrian regime that killed more than 80 civilians. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad.

Russian state news agency RIA Novosti quoted Andrei Krasov, deputy chairman of the State Duma's defence committee, as saying Russia would treat a USA airstrike on Syria "not just as an act of aggression but a war crime of the Western coalition".

"If you took the decision to carry out an illegal military adventure - and we do hope that you will come to your senses - well then you will have to bare responsibility for it", said Nebenzia.

The suspected chemical weapons attack late on Saturday injured more than 1,000 people at several sites in Douma, a town near the capital Damascus, according to the Union of Medical Care Organizations.

Regime ally Moscow said it would propose a United Nations resolution on a "transparent and honest" investigation with the OPCW's involvement.
