`Missiles are coming´ - Trump warns of imminent military action Syria

On Monday, the president said he isn't ruling out military action. In Tuesday's statement, the regime said it was ready to offer all assistance needed for the mission to fulfil its task.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said a team would deploy to Syria "shortly".

Will there be a military strike?

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley told the Security Council on Monday that both Russian Federation and Iran could stop the Syrian government's "murderous destruction", adding that Moscow's hands are "covered in the blood of Syrian children".

The use of chemical weapons has been regarded as a line in the sand by the worldwide community.

At least 70 people were killed and more than 1,000 others were injured in Saturday's alleged attack by Assad regime forces.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Reaching sources inside the town is complicated by their patchy access to lines of communication.

Washington and Moscow set out starkly different positions at a stormy emergency session at the UN Security Council, where Russia's ambassador Vassily Nebenzia warned that the possibility of United States military action was "very, very unsafe".

May is not required by law to seek parliamentary approval for offensive military action, but recent interventions in Libya and Iraq have been put to a vote.

But US Ambassador Nikki Haley said the "world must see justice done".

Damascus narrowly avoided American and French air strikes in 2013 in retaliation for a suspected sarin attack by agreeing to hand over its chemical arsenal.

May, also speaking earlier on Wednesday, said all the indications were that the Syrian authorities were responsible for the chemical attack in the town of Douma and that such shocking assaults could not go unchallenged.

Mr Trump did not give a time frame for any retaliatory action, but said the U.S. could not stand by as such atrocities take place because "we are able to stop it".

The US and France have not released evidence to support their assessments of the alleged attack. The evacuation deal restores Assad's control over the entire eastern Ghouta - formerly the biggest rebel bastion near Damascus.
