Russian lawmakers said Moscow would view a USA airstrike on Syria as a war crime that could trigger a direct military clash between the two powers.

Al Jazeera's Mike Hanna, reporting from the United Nations headquarters in NY, said that this was "the 12th Russian veto in relation to events in Syria since the beginning of the war in Syria".

WASHINGTON, D.C.: US President Donald Trump was poised on Tuesday to decide on possible military action against the Syrian regime, after vowing to respond "forcefully" to the latest alleged chemical atrocity in the country's bloody civil war despite strong warnings from Damascus-ally Russian Federation. Officials said at least one helicopter dropped a barrel bomb of chemicals that suffocated a number of civilians, including children.

President Donald Trump plans to send Vice President Mike Pence to an upcoming summit in South America the president has made a decision to skip.

Moscow proposes an inspection of attack site Russian Federation said on Tuesday it will propose to the United Nations that worldwide inspectors visit the site of the suspected chemical weapons attack in Douma.

Trump said, however, that Washington was "getting more clarity" on who was responsible for the attack.

Diplomats said the United States was pushing for a vote on Tuesday on its draft resolution setting up a Syria gas attacks inquiry, but Russian Federation could veto the measure.

"The day we prayed would never come has come again", Haley said.

U.S. President Donald Trump canceled a planned trip to Latin America later this week to focus on responding to the Syria incident, the White House said.

Last April, after a Sarin nerve agent attack killed more than 80 people in a Syrian opposition-held town, Trump ordered the firing of dozens of cruise missiles at a Syrian government air base from U.S. Navy ships in the Mediterranean.
