Four Iranian fighters killed in air strike on Syrian air base

Military to present Trump with Syria strike options within hours: sources

The report said Syrian government forces shot down eight missiles at the T4 airbase, and that the attacks were "likely to be an American aggression".

Russian Federation said two Israeli fighter jets launched the attack on the T4 air base in central Syria from Lebanon's air space in the early hours of Monday.

But Israeli officials said the Tiyas, or T-4, air base was being used by troops from Iran and that Israel would not accept such a presence in Syria by its arch foe.

Syrian state TV meanwhile quoted the unnamed military official as saying Israeli F-15 warplanes had fired several missiles while flying over neighbouring Lebanon.

Macron said in February "France will strike" in the event of lethal chemical weapon attack on civilians by government forces in Syria.

The airstrikes killed 14 people, including fighters from Iran, according to a conflict monitoring group, The New York Times reported.

The timing of the airstrikes in central Homs province, hours after President Donald Trump said there would be "a big price to pay" for the chemical weapons attack, raised questions about whether Israel was acting alone or as a proxy for the United States.

Further, President Trump spoke against the chemical attack launched by the Syrian government against civilians and blamed the president of Syria for having powers over Russian Federation and Iran.

The Pentagon said: "The Department of Defense is not conducting air strikes in Syria".

The Syrian American Medical Society and the civil defence service, which operates in rebel-held areas, said 49 people had been killed in the suspected gas attack.

An early league win may also help their Champions League hopes, as they will be able to rest players for the most crucial games. Zidane surprised everybody by taking off Ronaldo just after the hour mark and replacing him with Karim Benzema .

The agency said it was likely "an American aggression" but USA officials say the United States had not launched airstrikes on Syria.

"Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria", he wrote in the first of three tweets. The alleged attack in Douma occurred Saturday night amid a resumed offensive by Syrian government forces after the collapse of a truce.

Speaking to 103 Radio, Ben Eliyahu said that if the attack was in retaliation for the weekend assault on civilians with gas weapons, "the United States would have had a hard time acting so quickly, unless it had a ship or planes in or over the Mediterranean".

When asked about the explosions, an Israeli spokeswoman declined to comment.

The fast-paced developments heightened tensions between the USA and Russian Federation, which has in the past warned against any US military action against President Bashar Assad's government.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said Assad's government and its backers, including Russian Federation, "must be held to account" if it is found to have been responsible for the suspected poison gas attack.

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. It also, perhaps, came as a bit of a surprise as Trump has often been criticised for his lack of the same towards his Russian counterpart for his country's alleged involvement in the meddling of the 2016 USA presidential election.

The United Nations also weighed in, saying that the alleged use of chemical weapons if true is "abhorrent".

US government sources said Washington's assessment of the Saturday attack was that chemical weapons were used.
