After meeting in this capital with Ali Akbar Velayati, the advisor to the leader of the Islamic Revolution of Iran for International Affairs, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem pointed out that these bilateral consultations will continue in several sectors.

The agency said it was likely an act of "American aggression", however the Pentagon denied involvement.

"The enemies know that they will not make any progress in Syria or in the region, as they have been unable to do so during the past seven years", he stated.

Iran on Sunday condemned allegations of a chemical attack on Syrias Eastern Ghouta rebel holdout as a "conspiracy" against its ally President Bashar al-Assad and a pretext for military action.

In a press conference on Tuesday, French President Emmanuel Macron said the decision to launch strikes in Syria would "not target allies of the regime or attack anyone but rather attack the regime's chemical capabilities".

Earlier on Monday, both United States and Russian officials said Israel's air force was behind the bombing of Syria's T-4 airbase, which according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights left at least 14 people dead, including "foreign nationals", which the Tehran regime confirmed were Iranian personnel. They have been denied proper education, food, healthcare, and have been forced to live in basements for months to shelter from attacks. The Syrian state news agency also said that the missiles were fired by Israel from Lebanese airspace.

The small USA force of about 2000 troops deployed in northeastern Syria alongside Syria's Kurds are particularly vulnerable to revenge attacks by both Iran and Syria, he said. According to a JewishPress.com report, as many as 11 Iranian Revolutionary Guards may have been killed in the attack. Trump added that a decision would be made in 24 to 48 hours.

"Any time there is an important victory in confronting terrorists in political and field developments, we face a coordinated game and tactic from terrorist groups and foreign players", said Ansari. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world.
