Syria. The use of chemical weapons in April 2017 provoked a USA missile strike, the first direct American hit on Bashar al-Assad's regime since the conflict in Syria began in March 2011.
The airstrikes killed 14 people, including fighters from Iran, according to a conflict monitoring group, The New York Times reported.
Russian Federation and Syria have invited a probe into the alleged chemical attack on the rebel-held town of Douma after United States president Donald Trump threatened that there would be a "big price to pay".
The US launched several dozen Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian air base a year ago after a chemical attack in the northern Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun killed dozens of people. In addition, the statement also said that the Department would be keeping a close eye on the situation and that they would offer all the support that was needed in order to detain those who were responsible for the air strike.
Syria's White Helmets, who act as first responders in rebel-held areas of Syria, said the Douma attack took place late on Saturday using "poisonous chlorine gas".
Syria's state news agency SANA initially said the attack on the T4 air base was likely "an American aggression", but the Pentagon denied involvement, and the agency then dropped the accusation, blaming Israel instead.
He even included Vladimir Putin, the Russian president in his rage against the chemical attacks on the civilians in Syria.
Turkey attacked Afrin in March to drive out the Kurdish militia, known as the YPG, which forms the backbone of the Syrian Democratic Forces, America's main partner in Syria. The gas attack was blamed on Assad.
Israel military, which already bombed the T-4 airbase in February, refused to give any comments to Sputnik about the airstrike on the facility. While the global officials were trying to confirm the chemical attack that took place on Saturday, Trump was seen slamming Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Douma is the last remaining opposition-held town in Eastern Ghouta, once the rebels' main bastion outside Damascus but now ravaged by a seven-week regime assault. "SICK!" tweeted US President Trump.
And a prominent Republican senator warned Trump that a failure to act now could leave him in a weakened posture internationally.
An image from a video released by the Douma City Coordination Committee shows a girl being sprayed with water Saturday following an alleged chemical attack on the rebel-held town.
The EU appealed in a statement on Sunday that Assad allies Russian Federation and Iran "use their influence to prevent any further attack and ensure the cessation of hostilities and de-escalation of violence" as agree under a United Nations resolution.
The U.S. missile strike was against a Syrian air base which Washington said was used to launch the strike.
