'Smart' US missiles will hit Syria, Trump warns Russian Federation in warlike tweet

US-POLITIC-TRUMP

Trump tweeted, referring to Moscow's alliance with Assad.

His comments raised fears of direct conflict over Syria for the first time between the two world powers backing opposing sides in the country's protracted civil war, which has aggravated instability across the Middle East. Everybody's going to pay a price.

But he has threatened military action in response to Syria's suspected chemical attack, which activists and rescuers say killed at least 40 people. Last year, 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles targeted Syrian warplanes suspected of carrying out the chemical assault.

If such threats from the US and its allies, France and Britain, are meant to stop Damascus from fighting terrorism, "they are delusional", the statement also said.

Syria's Foreign Ministry said Washington is using the alleged chemical attack as a pretext to target Syria. On that occasion, the U.S.

A number of non-governmental organizations, including the White Helmets, have alleged that chemical weapons had been used in Douma, Eastern Ghouta, on April 7.

After an emergency closed-door meeting of the UN Security Council on Thursday, Russia's UN ambassador, Vassily Nebenzia, urged the United States and its allies to refrain from military retaliation in Syria.

How did Trump respond to Russian Federation?

The tweet, sent early on Thursday morning, comes after a previous message in which Trump told Russia to prepare for missile attacks on Syria, which Russians officials in turn promised to shoot down.

In a morning tweet, Trump referred to Syrian President Bashar Assad as a "Gas Killing Animal" and rebuked Russian Federation for being "partners" with the Middle East strongman.

Did Russia respond to Trump's tweet?

"Smart missiles should fly in the direction of terrorists and not the legitimate government, which for several years has been battling with worldwide terrorism on its territory", spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on Facebook.

In Mauro's opinion, it would be beneficial for the U.S.to "double-down" on its relationship with Kurdish fighters. He said killing Mr. Assad would be "the ultimate deterrent to dictators" who use chemical weapons or sponsor terrorism.

The "axis of resistance", referring to the Syrian allies of Iran and Hezbollah, has its choices in dealing with the USA threats, Shabaan said, adding that the rule of clashes has changed in favour of the Syrian side. British Prime Minister Theresa May has not said whether British forces would be involved.
