Trump warns Russia: Missiles 'will be coming' to Syria

Early Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump tweeted that Russian Federation should get ready because missiles will be coming "nice and new and "smart" and chastised Russian Federation for partnering with a "gas killing animal", referring to Syrian President Bashar Assad.

President Trump on Wednesday warned Russian Federation that if they shoot down USA missiles fired at Syria and target the launch sites they better "get ready".

Donald Trump has issued a stark warning to Russian Federation and Syria to "get ready" for a missile attack on the Assad regime.

She warned that a U.S. missile strike could destroy evidence of the use of chemical weapons and thus hinder an objective investigation.

Vladislav Volodin, the speaker of Russia's lower house of parliament, said the "whole world is horrified by" Trump's tweeting.

Vladimir Shamanov, chairman of the defence affairs committee in Russia's lower house of parliament, said on Tuesday that Russian Federation has "the necessary means for that and that Americans and their allies know that quite well", adding that a retaliatory strike could target U.S. aircraft and naval ships, Reuters news agency reported. Russia vetoed a us text, while two Russian-drafted resolutions failed to get a minimum nine votes to pass.

Meanwhile, Russia, an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, has called for worldwide inspectors to visit the site of the suspected attack.

Trump on Tuesday canceled a planned trip to Latin America on Friday to focus instead on talks with Western allies about possible military action to punish Assad over the suspected gas attack.

The US is expected to launch a military strike by the end of the week.

The United States and many of its allies have blamed the Syrian government for an alleged chemical attack in Syria's Duma over the weekend. Wednesday's statement is also notable because Trump has criticized his predecessors for telegraphing United States military action.

He lambasted Moscow for standing by Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Russian politicians said Moscow would view a U.S. air strike on Syria as a war crime that could trigger a direct military clash between the two powers.

In an interview with Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV station, Mr Zasypkin said any missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launching sites targeted.
