Later on Friday morning, the Russian military clarified that the foreign power Moscow suspects of staging the attack is the United Kingdom.
A fact-finding mission from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is expected to head to Douma, the site of the suspected attack. She said of the alleged chemical attack that "Russia can complain all it wants about fake news, but no one is buying its lies and its cover-ups".
Meanwhile, a team of inspectors from the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog is due to begin an investigation into the suspected chemical weapons attack near the Syrian capital of Damascus.
RUSSIA'S foreign minister has claimed a suspected chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma last weekend was fabricated with the help of an unspecified foreign intelligence agency.
"It is getting finally clear that those in the West who are exploiting humanitarian rhetoric and trying to justify their military presence in Syria by the needs to crush jihadists are actually aligning themselves with them and seeking to dismember the country", the ministry stressed. At the Security Council on Friday, the Russian ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the West was interested only in overthrowing the Syrian government and urged the US, French and British leaders to refrain from military action.
Russia's ambassador to the United States warned that there would be consequences for the US-led military strikes, adding that it was not acceptable to insult Russia's President.
The White Helmets are not the sole source of information about the Douma attack.
"Not one of the cruise missiles released by the USA and its allies entered the zone of responsibility of Russian air defences protecting facilities in Tartus and Hmeimim", the ministry said in a statement carried by the RIA Novosti state news agency, referring to the locations of Russia's naval and air bases.
The Russian Foreign Ministry also said that following Syrian rebels' withdrawal from eastern Ghouta, stockpiles of chemical agents were found there.
The aggression was launched at a time when the Syrian troops are continuing their successful offensive against terrorist groupings, including the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist groups outlawed in Russian Federation, the ministry pointed out. Both the Russian military and the Syrian government said they would facilitate the mission and ensure the inspectors' security.
He noted that the Russian and USA militaries have a hotline to prevent incidents, adding that it's not clear if it would be sufficient amid mounting tensions. It also said Russian officers found no patients with chemical attack symptoms at a local hospital, and no indication of any burials having taken place of the victims.
However, the Observatory says the facilities were evacuated by the Syrian government days before.
