Israeli strike on Syria kills 14 killed

Syria Reuters

Iranian and Pakistani aid groups are sending humanitarian relief supplies to recently liberated Syrian towns in Eastern Ghouta, Press TV reports.

SANA reported that the missile attack on the T4 military air base in Homs province resulted in a number of casualties.

"Trump's cheap shot against Iran, which has consistently condemned the use of chemical weapons by anyone and is itself the victim of their use by Saddam with USA support, is hypocritical".

China said that it supports an investigation into a suspected chemical attack on the Syrian rebel-held town of Douma that has provoked global outrage.

The Syrian government has had a good cooperation with the United Nations on chemical matters, Qassemi said, adding that the worldwide community, after Syria's accession to the Chemical Weapons Convention, destroyed all the chemical weapons production and manufacturing facilities of the Arab country.

"When on a given day, the chance for [active military conflict with Iran] are about one percent, now it is about 10%", former prime minister and defense minister Ehud Barak said Tuesday. Israel has also been providing medical treatment to the militants wounded in the Arab country.

The U.N. Security Council planned to hold an emergency meeting Monday to discuss the chemical attack.

She said: "The United States is determined to see that the monster who dropped chemical weapons on the Syrian people held to account".

The OPCW's fact-finding mission for Syria was established in April 2014 to confirm chemical weapons use, but it does not have the mandate to establish who is responsible.

Experts were digging up information "from all available sources" and their findings would be reported to the 192 nations which have signed the Chemical Weapons Convention, Uzumcu vowed.

Syria denies ever using chemical weapons during the war and says it eliminated its chemical arsenal under a 2013 agreement brokered by the US and Russian Federation.

Syria has been accused multiple times of using toxic weapons including sarin gas in the country's seven-year war, which has killed more than 350,000 people.

The Syrian regime has also been blamed for using chlorine gas on three villages in 2014 and 2015.

The main rebel group in the area, Jaish al-Islam, had been holding out for a settlement that would allow it to remain and join a peace process proposed by the Russians under which rebel-held territories would eventually reconcile with the Assad government.
