Israel has also struck inside Syria in recent years. It said Syria shot down five of them while the other three landed in the western part of the base.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based monitor, said at least 14 people were killed including some fighters of various nationalities.

The attack demonstrated the multi-faceted nature of the Syria conflict, which started in March 2011 as an uprising against Assad and now involves several countries and various insurgent groups in a web of alliances.

'President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad.

Guterres's speical envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, told the Council via a video link from Geneva that the terrorist group Jaish al-Islam that was in control of Douma had asked for United Nations intervention, but the Syrian government did not respond to it.

The attack on the air base was the second such strike this year.

A Syrian military official also said Israel was behind the attack.

YouTube shooter's freakish videos key to suspected motive, police say
People in Iran expressed pity and shock that Aghdam would shoot others in a country that allows more social media freedom. The San Bruno Police Department identified Nasim Aghdam , 39, of San Diego as the YouTube campus shooter on April 3.

On the contrary, the Syrian state denied government forces had launched any chemical attack and have called the reports fake.

Russia's Defense Ministry said two Israeli aircraft targeted the base Monday, firing eight missiles.

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

Syrian state TV quoted an unnamed military official as saying that Israeli F-15 warplanes fired several missiles at T4. Israel hit the base, known as T4, in February, after it said an Iranian drone that violated Israeli airspace took off from it. He also accused former president Barack Obama of being under the influence of the Syrian president.

"In this context we are taking action with all means, over time".

On Sunday, President Trump expressed his disgust at the gas attack, tweeting, 'Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria.

The state SANA news agency says the people were freed around midnight on Sunday.

A video has emerged of a bus window being smashed, where fighters were injured as they waited to leave a media day for the UFC . However, ABC News reported on Thursday that NY police are still investigating the incident and have not issued a warrant yet.

"The numbers keep rising as relief workers struggle to gain access to the subterranean areas where gas has entered and hundreds of families had sought refuge", the group said.

One video shared by activists showed bodies of about a dozen children, women and men, some with foam at the mouth.

Global condemnation grew over a suspected poison gas attack in a rebel-held town near Damascus said to have been carried out by the Syrian government, while Syria and its main ally, Russia, blamed Israel for air strikes on a Syrian air base Monday that reportedly killed 14 people, including four Iranians.

What kind of gas was used in the latest attack in Syria?

The AP and other global news organizations reported SANA said the country's air defenses had shot down eight missiles.

The UN Security Council is set to meet in an emergency session today to discuss the poison gas attack. He said the Russian military visited the site of the suspected attack and found no traces of the chemicals. On Monday, following the Douma attack, Mr. Trump said that the administration would be making a "major" decision on Syria within the next 24 to 48 hours.

And in 2017, the Syrian government used sarin once again, this time against civilians in the town of Khan Sheikhoun. The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said it has opened an investigation.

Simi Garewal, on the other hand, believes that it was not Salman who killed the two blackbucks on that fateful night. Salman's body language inside police station along with other constables clearly speaks volumes about the actor.

For weeks, the remnant rebel holdout east of Damascus has faced an offensive by Syrian government forces, prompting moves to evacuate civilians, although Jaish al-Islam rebels have not confirmed such a deal.
