The Russian Defense Ministry on Monday said that Israel was responsible for the airstrikes at a Syrian military base, and that Israel fired eight missiles at the government base.

It appears that dozens of Syrian civilians were killed on Saturday in an attack using chemical weapons.

The attacks were launched on the country's T4 military base and Syrian officials suspect American involvement in the attacks.

The IDF shot down the drone, and dispatched a battery of planes to attack the Tadmor air base in Syria, where the drone was dispatched from, and several other targets in Syria. When asked by interviewers what Israel's interest in such an attack was, Ben Eliyahu said that it was part of the ongoing efforts to prevent Iran from establishing a base in Syria.

The reports of the latest chemical attack in Syria and of the related civilian casualties are of grave concern to China, said Wu.

Most of those killed were either Iranians or members of Iran-backed groups, said Rami Abdurrahman, who heads the observatory, which has regularly monitored Syria's seven-year war.

The alleged attack on Saturday killed 40 in the rebel-held town of Douma, multiple opposition and rescue groups including told The Associated Press, which was unable to independently verify the reports.

"The Syrian Air Defense Force has destroyed a few missiles, which attacked the T-4 air base".

Israel is yet to comment on the missile strike which hit Syria's Tayfour airbase also known as T4.

"An aggression was perpetrated on T-4 air base in several strikes that is most likely to be an American attack", state television said in a news flash.

Russian Federation is warning the USA against any "military intervention" in Syria over the government's alleged chemical attack against civilians this weekend, saying any such response would be "unacceptable" and lead to the "most serious consequences".

United Nations war crimes investigators had previously documented 33 chemical attacks in Syria, attributing 27 to the Assad government, which has repeatedly denied using the weapons. The gas attack was blamed on Assad.

As worldwide officials worked to try to confirm the chemical attack, Trump took the rare step of directly criticizing Russian President Vladimir Putin in connection with the incident.

A White House spokesperson confirmed that Mr Trump has shared a phone call with French president Emmanuel Macron, both of whom promised a "strong, joint response" to the attack.

Haley said those responsible for the attacks were "monsters", adding: "We must not overlook Russian Federation and Iran's roles in enabling the Assad regime's murderous destruction".

At least 14 people have died near the city of Homs, after air strikes at a Syrian military base.

The U.N. Security Council will meet twice on Monday following rival requests by Russian Federation and the United States.

Russia's military, which has supported Assad, denied the Syrian army is behind the chemical attack in Douma in Eastern Ghouta on Sunday and accused Western countries of trying to use the alleged attack for their own ends. The European Union also said evidence pointed to the use of chemical weapons by Assad's forces.
