Asked about possible US strikes on Syria, President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday that "it's necessary to avoid any steps that may fuel tensions in Syria".

President Donald Trump just tweeted a warning that an attack on Syria is imminent - breaking his own policy of not signaling upcoming military moves.

At a two-hour meeting, the cabinet backed plans to take further action - along with the United States and France - to prevent Assad's forces from ever launching such an "appalling and inhumane" onslaught again. "You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills people and enjoys it!" he wrote.

There were signs of a global effort to head off a direct confrontation between Russian Federation and the West.

The suspected use of chemical weapons has drawn the West back into Syria's seven-year conflict.

May spoke with US President Trump Thursday night about the global response to Syria, and they "agreed that the Assad regime had established a pattern of risky behavior in relation to the use of chemical weapons", according to a Downing Street statement. "We've got very delicate circumstances and we've got to make a judgment on a very careful, very well-thought-out, well-thought-through basis". None of the three countries' leaders had made a firm decision, according to the officials, who were not authorized to discuss military planning publicly.

"They are the guarantors of law and order in the town", RIA news agency quoted Russia's defence ministry as saying.

Trudeau to talk Trans Mountain with BC, Alberta premiers — Suddenly Sunday
Kinder Morgan stopped non-essential spending on the $7.4 billion dollar project Sunday because of opposition delays. On the other hand, maybe Horgan stands defiant in steadfast defence of B.C.'s coastal environment and its people.

Syria and its main ally, Russia, have denied that any chemical weapons were used and gave permission for the OPCW to investigate.

Trump's threat of retaliatory military action prompted a slew of Russian comments warning that USA strikes could trigger a direct military clash between them.

World stocks edged down as anxious investors stayed wary of risky assets.

Earlier this week, Trump said his administration was working on a response to the suspected chemical attack, including military options.

The tweet came after Alexander Zasypkin, the Russian envoy to Beirut, said: "If there is an American strike, then we. will shoot down the missiles and target the positions from where they were launched".

Meanwhile, the Russian military said the Syrian government is now in full control of Duoma, once held by rebels opposing Assad.

Russian Federation has called on all parties involved in Syria to refrain from actions that could destabilize the region. A US guided-missile destroyer, the USS Donald Cook, is in the Mediterranean.

Juventus captain Buffon: We go to Real Madrid with right mentality
We must remember that we beat Real Madrid 3-0 on their own turf and only a insane person would've believed that going in. Two goals from Mario Manduzkic and a Blaise Matuidi's strike put Juventus on course to take the game to the extra time.

Senior Russian figures have warned that missiles threatening the country's forces in Syria will be shot down and their launch sites targeted.

Depending on the strength of the strikes, Bashar al-Assad´s regime could be deterred from resorting to chemical weapons in the future. Netanyahu's office said: "The prime minister reiterated that Israel will not allow Iran to establish a military presence in Syria".

Sablin, who has met with Assad on several occasions, said the Syrian leader told him "he would never leave Syria and would share his people's fate".

President Donald Trump tweeted on Thursday that the USA will strike Syria, but kept the timing a mystery.

"We can not tolerate with a war criminal", the emir said, adding, "This matter should end immediately".

"If these strikes start, it could end very tragically and it's impossible to predict the outcome - that's the nature of military actions", Klintsevich said in a phone interview in Moscow.

British opposition lawmakers called for Parliament to be given a vote before any military action. It was not clear whether the presence of the investigators could affect the timing of any USA military action. Officials suggested such evidence was lacking, or at least not yet at hand.
