White House considering additional sanctions on Russian Federation after Syria gas attack

Other reports from the United States envoy to the OPCW are alleging that Russian Federation may have even tampered with the site of the gas attack in Syria. Lavrov said Russian experts have already inspected the site of the alleged attack and found no trace of chemical weapons, adding without elaboration that Moscow has "irrefutable information that it was another fabrication".

Meanwhile, UK Prime Minister Theresa May on Saturday said the military strikes on Syria were not about regime change, but about sending a clear message that the global community will not stand by and tolerate the use of chemical weapons.

Sure enough, BBC News is reporting that members of the OPCW team sent to Douma have not been allowed into the attack site. Footage of young victims foaming at the mouth and weeping in agony helped to thrust Syria's civil war - in which half a million people have been killed in the past seven years - to the forefront of world concern again.

Inspectors in Syria have still not gained access to Douma, it is reported.

Syrian government forces are suspected of using chemical weapons on rebel-held Douma on April 7 - an allegation that Syria's Assad denies.

Russia's deputy foreign minister said the delay was due to US airstrikes.

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, on Sunday announced the sanctions and President Donald Trump's commitment to staying involved in the Syria crisis, hours before French President Emmanuel Macron took credit for helping turn around Trump's plan to withdraw U.S. troops.

"You will see that Russian sanctions will be coming down", Haley said.

She said, "These strikes are about deterring the barbaric use of chemical weapons in Syria and beyond". Moscow has denied any wrongdoing.

Russian officials have claimed that the Douma attack was staged to distract the public from a supposed lack of clarity about who poisoned ex-spy Sergei Skripal in Salibsury in March.

The organisation, which needs a two-thirds majority to take decisions, has been undermined by political divisions over the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government.

He said: "I'm afraid the Syrian war will go on in its terrible, miserable way".

"And they will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use".

"What (Trump) has done is talked to our allies and said they need to step up more".

The United States, Britain and France fired more than 100 missiles at three alleged chemical weapons facilities early Saturday, angering Syria's military backer, Moscow, which threatened to retaliate.

"It is our understanding the Russians may have visited the attack site", US Ambassador Kenneth Ward said at a meeting of the OPCW in The Hague on Monday. Doctors at the hospital where suspected victims were treated told reporters on the tour that none of the patients that night had suffered chemical weapons injuries - they were asphyxiated by dust and smoke in a bombardment.

The Western leaders were also facing scrutiny at home over their actions.
