WASHINGTON D.C., The United States – State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert has said that there needs to be “an immediate response” against Syria for the chemical weapon attacks that occurred in the East Ghouta town of Duma that is occupied by the Jaish al-Islam terrorist group.
“Reports from a number of contacts and medical personnel on the ground indicate a potentially high number of casualties, including among families hiding in shelters. These reports, if confirmed, are horrifying and demand an immediate response by the international community,” Nauert said in a release.
This comes as White House Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Adviser Thomas Bossert said in an interview on ABC’s “This Week” that he would not “take anything off the table” with Syria.
This comes as Donald Trump in a series of tweets that can be seen here threatened Syria, Iran and Russia by saying they have to “pay a big price”.
The deranged statements coming from the United States comes despite their being no evidence that the Syrian government was responsible, nor even an investigation being conducted.
However, for many reasons provided, it is highly unlikely that the Syrian government was responsible. Read the reasons why here.
