Four Iranians Reportedly Killed in Israeli Airstrike on Syria's Airbase

Later in the day, the Russian Foreign Minister said that the missiles had been launched by two Israeli warplanes, while five out of eight strikes, carried out by the Israeli F-15 jets, were destroyed by Syrian air defenses.

"Iran's stance on chemical weapons is clear and we condemn any use of them against any target", Zarif added. While many observers initially believed the United States had carried out the strike in response to the Assad regime's alleged chemical attack on civilians in the Damascus suburb of Douma, Russia, Syria and Iran publicly blamed Israel. In his view "without a solid military stronghold in Syria, America's ability to counter the Terrible Trio's sinister ambitions would be put at severe risk".

On April 9, officers from the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the opposing sides in Syria visited Douma but did not find any traces of chemical weapons.

The U.N. Security Council planned to hold an emergency meeting Monday to discuss the chemical attack.

In Washington, Trump said his team was still debating whether to punish Damascus for the alleged use of chemical weapons in the Sunday attack on the town of Douma, the last major rebel-held urban stronghold in the suburb of Eastern Ghouta.

"With the Syrian army having the upper hand on the ground against the armed terrorists, it would not be rational for it to use chemical weapons", the statement said.

"Once we feel solid about the product market fit, we'll be expanding nationally", Uber mobility product head Jahan Khanna said . So Uber is looking for new ways where it can expand and wean people off owning cars.

In Block's view, "whatever the debate over the JCPOA - the nuclear agreement signed between Iran, six world powers and the European Union in 2015 - a robust consensus in Congress is needed that Iran's military role in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and elsewhere must be countered".

Hours after the attack, the Army of Islam rebel group agreed to surrender the town and evacuate their fighters to rebel-held northern Syria, Syrian state media reported.

Yet another recent OPCW report concluded that sarin was used in another incident on March 30 in the village of Latamneh.

The organization, also known as the White Helmets, and the Syrian American Medical Society, a medical relief organization, did not identify the substance used but said survivors treated at clinics smelled strongly of chlorine. The Islamic State jihadist group was found to have unleashed mustard gas.

They say Monday's airstrike hit a house in Dimnat Khadir district, an area that has seen heavy fighting between Saudi-backed government forces and Iran-allied Houthi rebels.
