Assad's government and Russian Federation denied the White House accusations.

Tuesday's statement attempted to add weight to a claim, issued by the White House on Monday, that the Syrian regime was making "potential preparations" for a chemical attack. Washington said it had reason to believe that preparations for chemical attacks were being nursed by the regime.

The April 4th chemical attack on the opposition-held town of Khan Sheikhoun in Syria killed over 80 people and drew harsh criticism from governments overseas, including the United States.

The US says, Syria's Government appears to be preparing for a chemical weapons attack and has warned that it will pay a very heavy price if one takes place.

NANCY YOUSSEF: Is the US committed to a form of deterrence against the regime for possible chemical attacks?

The latest chemical attack in Syria occurred in April, which killed more than 80 civilians and wounded hundreds. Many weeks after President Trump's decision to launch a Tomahawk strike against Assad's forces, the logic of President Trump's decision still seems overwhelmingly transparent: use chemical weapons, and we'll hit you with cruise missiles-nothing more, nothing less.

The White House issued the warning on Monday to Syria's leadership based on intelligence about what appeared to be active preparations at a Syrian airfield allegedly used for such an attack in April, U.S. officials said on Tuesday.

The music video for " Immigrants (We Get The Job Done )" features Ahmed in a subway auto mid-way through the video. But of course, since we're talking about Hamilton there's also a social media component.

The Syrian President accused the United States of manufacturing the alleged attack in April as means to justify its air strike on Syria.

"Insofar as we, the Trump administration, has challenged Assad, that does put us at odds with Russian Federation, and I'm okay with that", Miller says.

The U.N. has ascribed responsibility to Assad's government for three previous attacks during Syria's six-year civil war.

Captain Davis said the activity had been recorded over the "past day or two" but did not offer further details on how the intelligence had been gathered.

The U.S. accusation and ominous warning marked a further escalation of tensions in a country where the U.S.is using Syrian Arab and Kurdish proxy soldiers to combat the Islamic State group in its remaining strongholds, even as Russian Federation and Iran work to support President Bashar Assad, who has gained the upper hand in a long civil war.

Both Russia and Syria dismissed the White House's warning Tuesday.

In the country's south, US forces have sporadically bombed Iranian-backed militias in what the Pentagon has called acts of self-defense.
