Top general says Trump has military options if Syria uses chemical weapons

The Syrian regime has recently announced plans to launch a major military offensive in Idlib, which has always been controlled by various armed opposition groups.

"There are over three million civilians in this crowded area of Syria who are in a life-threatening situation", Ghanem Tayara, head of the US-based Union of Medical Care and Relief Organisations (UOSSM) said in a statement.

The US carried out a strike on a Syrian airbase in April 2017 in response to a deadly chemical weapons attack in Idlib that left at least 86 people dead, including 27 children, and which allegedly employed the nerve agent sarin.

In Geneva, the United Nations special envoy Staffan de Mistura was negotiating privately with Turkish, Iranian and Russian officials as part of a two-day effort to get the countries to seek political and not military solutions.

The website for the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) got his name and office wrong, mistakenly identifying him as "American Senator Richard Blake", and claimed he "expressed his happiness over the return of security to Syria and his hope that the remaining terrorist spots will be eliminated, saying that the whole world should rejoice in the victories achieved by Syria".

On Monday, U.S. President Donald Trump's national security adviser said the United States, Britain and France had agreed that another use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government would result in a "much stronger response" compared to previous air strikes.

"It is a very major preoccupation for us", he said.

The Pentagon's thinly veiled threat is the latest indication of Trump's recent about-face on Syria. It is also alarmed by efforts by USA -backed Kurdish YPG forces - regarded by Ankara as an affiliate of PKK separatists it has been battling for decades - to recapture northern areas held by Turkish forces.

In the meantime, the Syrian Army dispatched more troops and equipment to the contact lines with Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) in a large region from Jam'iyat al-Zahra and al-Lairamoun industrial zone up to the small town of Kafr Hamra in Northwestern Aleppo and from al-Malah farms to the small towns of Haraytan, Hayan, Anadan and Bayanoun in Northern Aleppo.

On Friday, near the U.S. garrison at Tanf in southern Syria close to Iraq, U.S. Marines conducted a live-fire exercise. The Marine exercise followed a Russian notification, and US rejection, of a plan to enter the zone in pursuit of "terrorists".

"President Bashar al-Assad of Syria must not recklessly attack Idlib Province", Trump wrote September 3 on Twitter. For the bombing of Idlib has already begun.

At a meeting in Tehran on Friday, the presidents of Russia, Iran and Turkey failed to agree on a cease-fire to halt the violence.

But on Thursday, James Jeffrey, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's newly appointed special envoy to Syria, indicated that the president has agreed to a new plan: USA forces will remain in the country to ensure not just the defeat of the Islamic State but also the departure of all Iranian forces. Stop Assad's assault on Idlib. When did Congress authorize a new war?

His remarks came as Syrian troops, backed by Russian Federation and Iran, massed around the northwestern province ahead of an expected onslaught against the largest rebel-held zone left in the country.
