He repeated that he wanted the US military out of the country in a press conference on Tuesday.

"We can't let atrocities like we all witnessed.we can't let that happen in our world.especially when we're able to because of the power of the United States.we're able to stop it". "We'll be successful against anybody militarily, but sometimes it's time to come back home - and we're thinking about that very seriously".

"It's time. We were successful against ISIS", Trump said.

A White House spokesperson confirmed that Mr Trump has shared a phone call with French president Emmanuel Macron, both of whom promised a "strong, joint response" to the attack.

The worldwide chemical weapons watchdog said Tuesday it will send a fact-finding mission to the Syrian town where a suspected gas attack took place over the weekend, after receiving a request from the Syrian government and its Russian backers to investigate the allegations. "Big price to pay", he said.

The incidents in Douma and Tiyas demonstrated the complex and volatile nature of the Syria war, which involves a number of countries and insurgent groups.

"On Sunday, Trump, who had sought warmer relations with Russian Federation, criticized Putin by name on Twitter as he castigated Russian Federation and Iran for backing "Animal Assad".

"We have reached the moment when the world must see justice done", Haley told an emergency meeting at United Nations headquarters in NY.

Syria's state-run news agency said the military's air defences confronted a missile attack on air base in central Syria and shot down eight missiles. Syria denied it was responsible for the attack, which killed at least 80 people.

The missile attack followed a suspected poison gas attack on Saturday on the last remaining foothold for Syrian rebels in the eastern suburbs of Damascus.


U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said Tuesday he is outraged by the reported attack, and that the use of chemical weapons would be a violation of global law.

As President Trump warned Sunday of a "big price to pay" for yet another suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria, Russia declared that any foreign intervention could "lead to the most serious consequences".

"Through the relevant channels we already conveyed to the USA that armed force under mendacious pretext against Syria - where, at the request of the legitimate government of a country, Russian troops have been deployed - could lead to grave repercussions", he said.

Syrian state media, citing a military source, carried a similar report.

Haley castigated Russian Federation for backing Syria, saying that "Russia's hands are covered in the blood of Syrian children".

More than 100 buses entered the town Sunday night to transport fighters and their families to Jarablus, a town under the shared control of rebels and Turkey, said Syrian state-affiliated al-Ikhbariya TV.

The US and France threatened to respond to the alleged chemical attack, but deny striking the base, according to a BBC News report. Haley offered another such resolution on April 9 and called for a council vote on April 10. But it also is about the backers of the regime, and of course Russian Federation is one of those backers.

Speaking after the Khan Sheikhoun attack, Trump condemned the use of chemical weapons and blamed his predecessor, President Barack Obama. Lavrov also said the strike on the T-4 base was a risky development.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Monday accused Russian Federation of falling short on its obligations to ensure that Syria abandoned its chemical weapons capabilities.

The UN's top human rights official, Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, warned against what he called a "collective shrug" and "impotent" worldwide response to the possible use of chemical weapons in Douma.
