Syrian activists have said that a poison gas attack on Douma, a town held by rebels, have killed over 40 people while the rest are seriously injured.
The Pentagon was suspected to be conducting air strikes in Syria after receiving threats about chemical attacks. The Pentagon, however, denies any role in the air strikes.
According to the Syrian media, the country's air defenses had come face to face with a missile attack during which nearly 8 missiles were shot down.
The attacks were launched on the country's T4 military base and Syrian officials suspect American involvement in the attacks.
According to Syrian officials, the air strikes killed and injured a large number of people and among those killed were Iranians and members of Iranian groups.
US denies any involvement in air strikes
The Department of Defense released a report that denied any involvement in the air strikes. In addition, the statement also said that the Department would be keeping a close eye on the situation and that they would offer all the support that was needed in order to detain those who were responsible for the air strike.
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 Russia and Iran. He also accused former president Barack Obama of being under the influence of the Syrian president.
A defense force in Syria reported that several families were killed by poisonous gas in regions of Douma and Easter Ghouta while many more were hiding out and trying to escape being suffocated by the gas.
The Syrian president became more aggressive towards rebel groups and in turn, they had agreed to leave Douma within two days.
The attacks have come nearly a week after Trump expressed his desire to bring the U.S. troops back to the country.
Taking note of the current situation, it looks as though the U.S. cannot withdraw its troops from Syria any time soon.
Trump has not left out anyone in the blame game against the president of Syria. He even included Vladimir Putin, the Russian president in his rage against the chemical attacks on the civilians in Syria.
Currently, the U.S., the United Kingdom, France, Poland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Kuwait, Peru, and the Ivory Coast have called an emergency meeting of the United Nations to discuss strategies
