A Syrian refugee is thanking President Trump after a USA -led coalition launched airstrikes in Syria to punish the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad for a suspected chemical weapons attack on civilians.
In Douma, at least 40 people are believed to have died in the suspected chemical attack on April 7. Russian Federation has accused rebels of staging the attack with support from Britain, an allegation that Britain has strongly denied.
The suspected gas attack on April 7 on Douma, near Damascus, reportedly left more than 40 people dead and was blamed by Western powers on the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Video footage and witness testimony suggested that gas seeped down into the basements, suffocating the victims.
In response, the United States, France and Britain conducted unprecedented missile strikes on Syrian military installations, but Paris admitted on Tuesday they were a matter of "honour" that had solved nothing.
OPCW director general Ahmet Uzumcu said his nine-strong, all-volunteer team had reached Damascus, but so far "the team has not yet deployed to Douma".
Earlier Monday, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said the inspectors could not go to the site because they needed approval from the UN Department for Safety and Security.
Earlier in the day, Russian Permanent Representative to the UN Office in Geneva Gennady Gatilov said that the Syrian authorities had created all conditions for the normal work of the OPCW in Syria's Douma. It said Syrian air defenses shot down most of the six missiles fired at the base. He denied that Russian Federation was hampering the mission and suggested the approval was held up because of the Western airstrikes.
Syrian and Russian forces gained control over Douma on Saturday when rebels withdrew from the town, hours after the end of the Western countries' attacks.
Liberal Democrat leader Vincent Cable said he was also concern that May "made a grave mistake not bringing the case for military action to parliament", and like Corbyn, accused her of "riding on the coat-tails of an unpredictable United States president".
Both the USA and Israel appeared to deny involvement in the overnight incident, which would have been the third time that Homs province was bombed in just over a week.
It led to the rebel group that controlled Douma agreeing to surrender control of the town to the Syrian government.
