'Get ready Russia': Trump tweets Syria missile threat

Trump tweeted, referring to Moscow's alliance with Assad.

Analysts answered five key questions about what to expect next. Virtually all USA missiles now have advanced guidance systems.

Lawrence Korb, former USA assistant secretary of defence, told Al Jazeera the U.S. military is likely to use Tomahawk missiles.

Britons are split on United Kingdom military action in Syria - but oppose it if it means conflict with Russian Federation, a Sky Data poll reveals.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said any USA missile salvo could be an attempt to destroy evidence of the reported gas attack in the Syrian town of Douma, for which Damascus and Moscow have denied any responsibility.

The OPCW said it would "shortly" deploy a fact-finding team to Douma for an investigation, but USA officials said they were working from their own information and would not necessarily hold back. Earlier in the week, a Turkish Twitter troll spread a rumor that the guided missile destroyer USS Donald Cook was in Syrian waters, armed with 60 Tomahawks; CNN Turk picked up the story.

Trump's warlike tweet apparently came in response to a warning from Russia's ambassador to Beirut, who took to a television network run by the armed group Hezbollah to warn that any USA missiles would be shot down "as well as the sources they were fired from". However, there is some evidence it was sprayed from helicopters, they said.

May has not confirmed whether Britain will participate directly, but said "the continued use of chemical weapons can not go unchallenged". And Theresa May gave the president her backing by insisting that continuing use of chemical weapons "cannot go unchallenged".

However, the officials failed to comment whether the Syrian moves would influence the USA military plans.

Ashraf suggested the United States would likely keep its warplanes and naval vessels out of proximity to Russian forces.

Trump's tweet also drew a quick response from Russia's Foreign Ministry. Russian military advisers are deployed at many Syrian government facilities.

However, Shahbazov said the Russian defence ministry's warnings about retaliation should be noted.

Meanwhile, the Syrian government has put its forces on "high alert" amid the looming threat of a USA military response.

Russian lawmakers have warned the United States that Moscow would view an airstrike on Syria as a war crime and that it could trigger a direct military clash between the two former Cold War adversaries.

"They have threatened us a thousand times".

Trump's administration has sought to show toughness on Russian Federation, with a series of economic and diplomatic actions, including new sanctions last week against government officials and oligarchs. "But Russia has not used this system in Syria yet", he said.

One woman who refused to be identified because of fear for her security described herself as "trembling" and said she stocked up on food and is considering not sending her kids to school. Sandy Winnefeld, the targets are likely to be more valuable.
