Mattis said he personally believes Syria is guilty of an "inexcusable" use of chemical weapons, while noting that the global fact-finding team would likely fall short of determining who was responsible. "We work with the worldwide community, the United Nations to get the Geneva process underway and make certain that we don't allow this war to go on", Mattis said.

Macron said France has proof that the Syrian government launched chlorine gas attacks and said France would not tolerate "regimes that think everything is permitted".

Mattis briefed reporters at the Pentagon Friday an hour after President Donald Trump announced the strike.

Western powers are believed to be considering air strikes against Syria in response to a suspected chemical attack near Damascus. "But should the United States and our allies decide to act in Syria, it will be in defense of a principle on which we all agree".

Russian Federation has dismissed the purported chemical attack as fake and strongly warned the US and its allies against launching a military strike in Syria. "This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very awful regime".

"And the only reason Assad is still in power is because of the Russians' regrettable vetoes in the United Nations and the Russian and Iranian military".

"They agreed to keep working closely together on the worldwide response". "President Trump has failed to launch a multi-faceted diplomatic process in Syria and appears ready to repeat that failure again".

Russia's United Nations ambassador warned that US-led strikes could lead to a confrontation between the world's two preeminent nuclear powers, accusing the West of having the sole aim in Syria of overthrowing the government as it urged US, French and British leaders to refrain from military action. Vladimir Shamanov, who chairs the defence committee of Russia's lower house, said the vessels had departed the base for their own safety, which was "normal practice" when there were threats of attack. "Could be very soon or not so soon at all!" he had tweeted.

U.S. broadcaster NBC quoted USA officials familiar with the intelligence as saying they had now obtained blood and urine samples which had tested positive for chemical weapons. Both the Russian military and the Syrian government said they would facilitate the mission and ensure the inspectors' security.

The White House and National Security Council did not immediately respond to Anadolu Agency's requests for comment on the report.

The strikes came after an alleged chemical weapons attack on the rebel-held town of Douma that killed more than 40 people, according to medics and rescuers. She told her senior ministers on Thursday the Douma events showed a "deeply concerning" erosion of worldwide legal norms barring the use of chemical weapons.

"Following a discussion in which every member present made a contribution, Cabinet agreed it was vital that the use of chemical weapons did not go unchallenged".

British Prime Minister Theresa May's senior ministers agreed on the need for action at a Cabinet meeting on Thursday, but Downing Street did not specify what measures the United Kingdom would take, reports CNN. The statement made no specific reference to military action.
