No symptoms of chemical poisoning in patients in Syria's Douma, Russia says

Syria Several feared dead in possible chemical attack on rebel-held Douma town

The U.N. Security Council held an emergency meeting on Monday, and President Donald Trump said "major decisions" on Syria would come within 24 to 48 hours.

An official with the Union of Medical Care and Relief Organizations (UOSSM) told CNN that doctors in eastern Ghouta have told him they were seeing patients who were convulsing from side to side and some appeared to be paralyzed and unresponsive. The group blamed the Syrian regime.

Inside they showed off chemicals, fuses and mortar casings they said were used by rebels to manufacture weapons.Government officials also showed CNN a handwritten manual detailing instructions for how to build incendiary weapons, including white phosphorus munitions, amongst other things.

As for Germany, it said the circumstances pointed to the Syrian regime.

Syrian state television reported that a military air base came under attack from missiles in the early hours of Monday, although the USA quickly denied it was behind the offensive. The Pentagon denied in a statement that the USA military had launched the missile strikes and would continue to "closely watch the situation".

Human rights groups and United Nations officials say the tactic amounts to forced displacement, a war crime.

US President Donald Trump accused Russian Federation and Iran over the alleged attacks: "Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad".

Bodies of victims of alleged chemical attack lie on the ground in rebel-held Douma, Syria, 08 April 2018. The Observatory also reported that dozens of people had suffered breathing problems following the attacks, but could not identify the cause.

Seven years into Syria's bitter civil war, Assad's military has repeatedly been accused of using chemical weapons in densely populated areas, a tactic that experts say is meant to sew terror and break morale.

By now the pattern of these alleged chemical weapons attacks is set in stone. "The majority were civilians, women and children trapped in underground shelters", he told Reuters.

The most substantial reasoning to refuse the terrorist claims about the government's use of chemical weapons is Damascus's upper hand in the battlefield and failure of the armed groups to provide valid evidence for their past claims about use of unconventional weapons by the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

Observers say 14 people were killed.

"There is not a good war and a bad one, and nothing, nothing can justify the use of such devices of extermination against defenceless people and populations", he added.

Since February 18, the regimes Ghouta offensive has killed more than 1,600 civilians and sliced the area into three isolated pockets, each held by different rebel factions.

It confirms use of sarin in the Aug 21 attack in the Damascus suburb Ghouta that killed hundreds.

September 4, 2013: President Obama said at a joint press conference, "First of all, I didn't set a red line; the world set a red line", appearing to step back from his comments made the previous year. The suspected attack sparked global outrage, as state media reported that the last rebel holdouts in the onetime opposition stronghold had agreed to evacuate.

There has been at least a half dozen suspecting chemical attacks in Syria the U.S. president launched the air strikes, which meant to deter.

That attack prompted Washington to launch military strikes against a regime military base.

2014 and 2015:Helicopters from regime-controlled air bases dropped chlorine barrel bombs on two villages in Idlib province.

A year ago, almost 100 people were killed in a strike on the northern town of Khan Sheikhoun that the United Nations has blamed on the Syrian air force.
