Syria: 'Chemical attack' and international threats – Here's recap of events since April 7
Russian Federation has threatened to respond firmly to any military action against the Syrian Government.
Meanwhile, US defence secretary James Mattis has said the country's military stands ready to provide President Trump with options for striking Syria.
French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday said France has proof that the Syrian government launched chlorine gas attacks and that France would not tolerate "regimes that think everything is permitted".
The Pentagon refused to comment further on potential future military operations in response to Trump's tweet. "Could be very soon or not so soon at all!"
The government said it is "highly likely" that Assad is responsible for the Douma attack, with ministers agreeing "it was vital that the use of chemical weapons did not go unchallenged".
In the call, the two leaders had agreed that the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad "had established a pattern of unsafe behaviour in relation to the use of chemical weapons", Downing Street said.
"If there is a strike by the Americans, then. the missiles will be downed and even the sources from which the missiles were fired", Zasypkin told Hezbollah's al-Manar TV.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad today warned that threats of Western military action in response to an alleged chemical attack would only lead to further chaos in the region. The message notably did not rule out plans to attack Syria in retaliation for the weekend's suspected chemical attack on civilians at the hands of the Assad regime.
Trump puts off Syria strike decision, will talk to allies
Syrian opposition activists and medics say a suspected gas attack last week in Douma killed more than 40 people.
"In particular, there were signs of severe irritation of mucous membranes, respiratory failure and disruption to central nervous systems of those exposed", the United Nations health agency said.
The British Prime Minister Theresa May has called emergency meeting of her cabinet amid reports she is ready to give the green light for the United Kingdom to join any military action.
Downing Street said the Prime Minister spoke to the USA and French presidents on Tuesday, and said they had agreed to "continue working closely together" to ensure those responsible were "held to account". He continued by saying that global law has been systematically violated in Syria and that he feels angry at reports of chemical weapons use in the country.
A joint military operation, possibly with France rather than the U.S.in the lead, could send a message of global unity about enforcing the prohibitions on chemical weapons and counter Syria's political and military support from Russian Federation and Iran.
United States stock index futures fell sharply on Wednesday amid rising tension between Russian Federation and America.
And as recently as March 29, Trump mulled ending US military action in Syria now that the Islamic State's presence and power there is decimated.
