The U.N. will continue to work with Syrian authorities and the Russian military police to "review the security situation", the chemical weapons watchdog group says.

OPCW Director-General Ahmet Uzumcu told a closed-door meeting of his organization that it remains unclear when the team will be able to deploy to Douma, U.K. Ambassador Peter Wilson told reporters in The Hague.

The shooting occurred during a site visit to Douma, ahead of an expected visit to the area by a team of chemical weapons experts who have been delayed for days. They arrived in Damascus on Saturday.

The Security Council has been deadlocked over how to replace a joint United Nations and Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) inquiry, which the council created in 2015 to establish responsibility for toxic gas attacks.

Ken Ward, the US ambassador to the OPCW, claimed Monday the Russians had already visited the site and "may have tampered with it", a charge Moscow rejected.

"It is essential that Syria finally gives full, immediate and unfettered access to all of the OPCW's demands, whether to visit sites, interview people or consult document", the statement declared.

The U.S. and France say they have evidence that Syrian President Bashar Assad's military was behind the poison gas attack, but they have made none of that evidence public. The inquiry found the Syrian government used the nerve agent sarin and had several times used chlorine as a weapon.

A Syrian refugee is thanking President Trump after a USA -led coalition launched airstrikes in Syria to punish the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad for a suspected chemical weapons attack on civilians.

Putin reportedly stressed to Merkel that he believed the US, UK and France had broken global law and hampered the Syrian peace process. "Three countries have intervened, and let me be quite frank: this is for the honor of the worldwide community".

Big explosions were heard overnight near Shayrat air base, southeast of Homs city, and near Damascus where two other air bases are located, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported. Russian Federation has accused rebels of staging the attack with support from Britain, an allegation that Britain has strongly denied. Israel did not confirm or deny it. U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley fired back at White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Tuesday over his remarks that she may have been confused over Washington's plans to impose more sanctions on Russian Federation.
