"For the sake of the victims, I hope the rest of the council is finally willing to do the same". The attack killed at least 70 people, many of them children.
The statement also noted that emergency rooms and intensive care units in Idlib are overwhelmed and reporting shortages in medicines required to treat injured patients and that many patients have been referred to hospitals in southern Turkey.
Hussein Kayyal, a media activist with the pro-opposition Edlib Media Center, said warplanes had struck Khan Shaykhoun again Wednesday with heavy machine guns. Trump said disclosing military action ahead of time was a mistake the Obama administration had repeatedly made.
"It crossed a lot of lines for me", Trump said, at a joint White House news conference with Jordan's King Abdullah. The doctor, who testified before the U.N.in 2015 about renewed Syrian government use of chemical attacks despite claims it has destroyed its stockpiles, said there was a chlorine smell but it was mixed with other things, "toxic gas which causes poison and death".
According to The New York Times, the Syrian military denied attacking the town and said the attack was caused by insurgents who blame the Syrian government for similar attacks "every time they fail to achieve the goals of their sponsors".
The White House has not said how the Trump administration intends to respond to the crisis in Syria. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said, the "long-term status of Assad will be determined by the Syrian people". Russia, which has veto power, is opposed.
Russia's defence ministry said the toxic agents were released when a Syrian air strike hit a rebel arsenal, an account Britain dismissed at an emergency United Nations session called in response. "We know yesterday's attack bears all the hallmarks of the Assad regime".
Critics such as Arizona Republican Sen.
"You have to have access, you have to have security", he said.
Use of sarin would be especially troubling because it would suggest Syria may have cheated on its previous deal to give up chemical weapons.
"I will tell you, it's already happened, that my attitude towards Syria and Assad has changed very much".
Haley said Syria and its sponsors - Iran and Russian Federation - "have no interest in peace". "I don't think it's a coincidence that a few days later we see this".
Tillerson has said that the administration backs the idea of creating "interim zones of stability" within Syria where refugees could go, but he didn't offer any detail on a plan that would require defending those zones and therefore heighten the risk of military clashes with Russian Federation.
The US could go forward with the plan to declare and defend safe areas, Serwer said.
The attacks have overwhelmed local medical facilities which are "unequipped to handle chemical attacks of this magnitude", the UOSSM stated.
The strongest indication that the USA might act actually came at the United Nations, where Trump's envoy held up photos of the attack's victims in an emotional plea to the Security Council to intervene. I don't have to have one specific way and if the world changes, I change and that attack on children had a big impact on me. The draft also calls for meetings with Syrian generals or other officers.
The resolution contained language meant to be just useless enough to avoid the embarrassment of Russian Federation and China employing their double veto, for a seventh time, to prevent the Security Council from adopting any effective measure to bring an end to the plodding and now barely newsworthy Syrian genocide.
Obama had put Assad on notice that using chemical weapons would cross a "red line" necessitating a USA response, but then failed to follow through, pulling back from planned airstrikes on Assad's forces after Congress wouldn't vote to approve them. Videos from the scene showed volunteer medics using fire hoses to wash the chemicals from victims' bodies.
Trump did not go into detail about what a United States response to the atrocity will be - and he has previously opposed deeper U.S. military involvement in Syria's civil war. "This chemical horror opens a new spiral into the abyss of the human tragedy". "We can not close our minds" to actions that must be taken.
