Trump: Syria chemical attack was an ‘affront to humanity’

Washington (IINA) � US President Donald Trump condemned the killing of dozens of civilians in an apparent chemical weapons attack by the Syrian air force on Khan Shaykhun, in the country’s southern governorate of Idlib.

It was an “affront to humanity”, Trump said, adding: “When you kill innocent children, innocent babies, little babies… that crosses… many lines.”

He did not mention Russia, Syria’s ally, which says chemical weapons in rebel hands may have been released. But US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley accused Russia of covering up for Damascus.

“Time and time again Russia uses the same false narrative to deflect attention from their ally in Damascus,” Haley said during a heated UN Security Council debate in New York, BBC reported.

Hinting at possible unilateral action by the US, she added: “When the United Nations consistently fails in its duty to act collectively, there are times in the life of states that we are compelled to take our own action.”

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on Russia to “think carefully” about its continued support for President Assad, while Vice President Mike Pence said “all options are on the table” regarding Syria.

According to UK-based monitoring group, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, 20 children and 52 adults were killed in the chemical attack in Khan Shaykhun on Tuesday. Footage following the attack shows civilians, many of them children, choking and foaming at the mouth.

Both the World Health Organization (WHO) and Medecins Sans FrontiAres/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said some of the victims had symptoms consistent with exposure to nerve agents.
