The UK would support any United States attack on Assad so long as it was proportionate, legal and necessary, Fallon added.
The U.S. accusation and ominous warning marked a further escalation of tensions in a country where the U.S.is using Syrian Arab and Kurdish proxy soldiers to combat the Islamic State group in its remaining strongholds, even as Russian Federation and Iran work to support President Bashar Assad, who has gained the upper hand in a long civil war.
The Trump administration is warning that Syria will pay "a heavy price" if it follows through on what the US says are preparations for another chemical weapons attack. "In the last case (in April), it was", Fallon told the BBC.
The Kremlin is dismissing the White House's warning that the Syrian government is preparing a new chemical attack and that President Bashar Assad and his military "will pay a heavy price" if it goes ahead. USA officials say Assad never fulfilled the demand of Obama's deal with Russian Federation, keeping control of some stockpiles.
In a bluntly worded statement released late on Monday night, the White House said: "The United States has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime that would likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children". On April 6, the us militarylaunched Tomahawk missiles that struck Shayrat airfield in response to the Syrian regime's chemical weapon attack on civilians.
State Department officials who would normally be involved in a big announcement such as Monday's warning to Syria said they were caught by surprise, the Los Angeles Timesreported.
The goal of the statement was to "do what we can to protect life in all forms and to take steps to move the ball forward in defeating [the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria], defeating all efforts of terrorism", she said.
It's unclear at this point what the US will do next but here's a bit of backstory.
Lina Khatib, head of the Middle East and North Africa program at the Chatham House, agreed.
The Syrian military and foreign ministry did not immediately comment on the White House statement though a Syrian state-run television station, al-Ikhbariya, said the White House's allegations were fabricated. But Syria has been in a civil war since 2011, and many of those US -backed forces are also considered a threat by the Assad government.
Iran is Assad's key regional backer in his fight against his opponents since the Syrian crisis began in 2011.
"What's the United States trying to do?
". Adrian Rankine-Galloway reportedly said Tuesday that the US saw the activity at the same airbase from where Syrian jets departed and returned to April 4 after allegedly dropping sarin gas on the town of Khan Shaykoun some 60 miles north. The unprecedented shootdown - which Phillips said amounted to "quite a big step in sucking the USA into an outright confrontation with the Assad regime and its allies" - prompted a furious reaction from Syria's backers, with Moscow saying it was cutting the "deconfliction line", a direct means of communication with the USA set up to prevent any unintentional direct conflict in Syria.
Meanwhile, Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said the USA will not be drawn into Syria's civil war. The cruise missile strike in April was carried out by two ships. Russian Federation is a close ally of Assad.
"We won't fire unless they are the enemy, unless they are ISIS", he said, using an acronym for the jihadist organisation. The U.S. and its Arab and Western allies, and Syrian opposition groups, accuse Assad's forces of many more instances of using sarin and chlorine against civilians. Are they trying to control eastern Syria?
"It's probably not going to look that neat", he said. "Both Obama and Trump have been very bad at explaining what their plan is after ISIS".
