Syria has denied using chemical weapons and Russian Federation has blamed the White Helmets - a volunteer group inside rebel-held areas in Syria.

US President Donald Trump has warned Russian Federation of imminent military action in Syria over a suspected poison gas attack, declaring that missiles "will be coming" and lambasting Moscow for standing by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, write Susan Heavey, Makini Brice and Tom Perry.

But Russia isn't acting alone.

Meanwhile, leaders from the U.S., France and Britain have said the Syrian government was responsible.

The United States and its ally France assailed Syria's Bashar al-Assad at the United Nations on Friday for using chemical weapons as the prospect of US-led military action that could lead to confrontation with Russian Federation hung over the Middle East.

The day before a team from the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog was to arrive in Douma, east of Damascus, Mr Lavrov said Russian experts have inspected the site and found no trace of chemical weapons.

But clearly, they are interested in this idea that the USA was hitting both military and civilian targets, suggesting that Moscow may help Damascus beef up its air defenses for providing these S-300 surface air missile systems to Syria in the coming future. She noted in the meeting that Russian Federation "has stopped at nothing to defend the Syrian regime's multiple uses of chemical weapons".

The top hashtags on Securing Democracy's Hamilton 68 dashboard, which tracks 600 accounts linked to Russian influence campaigns, shows the overlap between pro-Trump social media users and pro-Assad Russian propaganda.

"When we see malicious cyber activity, whether it be from the Kremlin or other malicious actors, we're going to push back", Joyce said.

Anticipated $0.12 EPS for Zayo Group Holdings, Inc
Three Peaks Capital Ltd Liability reported 1.29% stake. 59,876 were reported by Boyd Watterson Asset Ltd Liability Oh. (NYSE:KAR). It dropped, as 153 investors sold GE shares while 921 reduced holdings. 82 funds opened positions while 144 raised stakes.

They agreed to "keep working closely" on the issue, Mrs May's office said in a statement. "They have no real idea what happened". Another official said Bolton did not advocate for any particular position beyond agreeing that the United States should retaliate for the attack if it was clear what chemicals had been used and who used them.

Far-right politicians also helped drive the false flag narrative.

U.S., British and French forces pounded Syria with air strikes early on Saturday in response to a poison gas attack that killed dozens of people last week, in the biggest intervention by Western powers against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. All of the deaths in Douma, he said, were fake. The head of the Russian military and senior Russian figures vowed to shoot down missiles at their launch site if Russian troops were under threat, so the BBC reports.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

OPCW inspectors were visiting sites in Douma on Monday where they were aiming to collect samples, interview witnesses and document evidence to determine whether banned toxic munitions were used.

This mirrors what happened a year ago, when far-right media platforms launched a full-fledged propaganda campaign running cover for the Syrian regime after it killed 83 people in a chemical attack.

A hacker could also "potentially lay a foundation for future offensive operations", the joint alert said.

In February this year, U.S. forces working alongside Kurdish militia in the east of Syria clashed with regime forces and killed scores of Russians working as mercenaries. -Russian ties in a one-on-one summit with President Trump.
