Peskov wouldn't say if Moscow could use a Russian-U.S. military hotline to avoid escalation in the event of a U.S. strike, saying only that "the hotline exists and has remained active". He added that it would have an "utterly destructive impact on the Syrian settlement". The Syrian government and Russian Federation have denied a chemical attack occurred.

"I don't think (U.S. President Donald) Trump would attack Syria", Nashaat al-Atrash said in an interview with Iran's Tasnim news agency. On Thursday, Trump tweeted that an attack "could be very soon or not so soon at all!"

He also called the Syrian leader a "gas killing animal". "Could be very soon or not so soon at all!" In Syria, this instinct points him away from a military-centric answer to Assad, writes Bonnie Kristian.

Velayati supported Assad's stance, adding that threats by some Western countries to attack Syria are "based on lies after the liberation of Eastern Ghouta".
