マッティスが対シリア軍軍事行動を排除せず ロシアが悲惨な結果を警告

米国がドウマでの塩素ガス使用事案の報道に関してシリア軍攻撃を否定せず、ロシアが強く警告しています。
イスラエル戦闘機がレバノン上空を経由してオムスの空港にミサイル攻撃を行いましたが、8発中5発が迎撃されています。前回の米軍のミサイル攻撃でも相当部分が迎撃されましたが、戦闘機そのものを撃墜するような事態になれば、大変な危機になります。

US not ruling out military action against Syria after reports of chemical weapons use – Mattis
US Defense Secretary James Mattis has not ruled out the possibility of launching airstrikes against Syria in response to an alleged chemical attack in the militant-held town of Douma.

Speaking with reports on Monday, Mattis said he wouldn't "rule out anything right now" after being asked if the US was mulling strikes against Syrian President Bashar Assad.

“The first thing we have to look at is why chemical weapons are still being used at all. Russia was the framework guarantor of removing all the chemical weapons and so working with our allies and partners, from NATO to Qatar and elsewhere we are going to address this issue," he added.

Saturday’s alleged chemical attack in Douma, Eastern Ghouta, comes as pro-government forces conclude an operation that has liberated nearly the entire region from Islamic militants. The alleged chemical incident was reported by the White Helmets, a controversial group repeatedly accused of having ties to terrorists and it could not be confirmed by Red Crescent medics on the ground.

Following the reports, two Israeli warplanes targeted a Syrian airbase in Homs on Sunday night, according to the Russian and Lebanese militaries. The Israeli jets fired eight missiles, five of which were intercepted, the Russian military said.

The Israeli strike came just hours after US President Donald Trump warned the Syrian government that there would be consequences for the alleged attack.

The Russian Foreign Ministry dismissed reports that the Syrian government was responsible for the alleged incident, saying the claims were yet another example of a “continuous series of fake news about the use of chlorine and other chemical agents by the government forces.”

“The goal of this… baseless speculation is to shield the terrorists and… the radical opposition that refuse to engage in a political settlement [process], as well as to justify potential military strikes from the outside,” the ministry said in a statement.

Moscow went on to warn that any military action taken in response to the alleged attack would be “absolutely unacceptable” and could lead to “dire consequences.”

Lavrov Underscores Russia's Commitments to Military Agreements with Syrian Gov't
TEHRAN (FNA)- Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov recalled Russia's obligations to the agreement with the legal government of Syria in response to warnings from the US officials that Washington isn’t ruling out the possibility of striking Syria.

"As for the warnings from the US President's officials that Washington does not exclude the possibility of striking Syria − you know, our military has already reacted to this. We have our obligations to Syria. Obligations based on our agreement concluded with the legitimate, legal government of the Syrian Arab Republic at the request of this government, which is, incidentally, a UN member-state," Lavrov said at a briefing in Moscow, Sputnik reported.

Russia stands for an honest investigation into the alleged chemical attack in Syria, but against the appointment of the perpetrators without any evidence.

"When they require an investigation, an honest and immediate one, we are only for it. But when this investigation is based on the need to come to a given point, and the given point here is 'Assad did it with the support of Putin', there is no serious conversation here," he said.

He noted that the reaction of the west to the reports of the alleged chemical attack in Syria has been reduced to "simple slogans."

"Of course, the regime did this, and since Russia supports it, Russia and Iran are still to blame, and, of course, it needs to be investigated," he said.

Earlier, the Qatari television network Al-Jazeera reported, citing militant source on the ground, about an alleged chlorine gas attack by Syrian government forces that, had supposedly, killed dozens of civilians.

"I am sure that many people saw these photos where children, adults, are showered abundantly from buckets, and this is done by people who are not using protective masks in order to protect themselves from the possible impact of the substance from which suffered those to whom they are helping. This is all very reminiscent of the one-year-old photos, when the so-called "white helmets", which have proved their fraudulent nature, without any special means of protection, worked with a funnel, which, according to the same white helmets, was formed as a result of the bomb drop from sarin gas. All serious scientists just shrugged their shoulders," Lavrov stated.

Meanwhile US President Donald Trump accused Russia and Iran of backing Syrian President Bashar Assad. Trump's Homeland Security Advisor Tom Bossert said that he did not rule out military actions against the Syrian government in connection with the reports.

"But, as you see, this all became the reason for the unwinding of the colossal anti-Syrian campaign, which is now being deployed against us under the pretext that Russia covers the criminal regime, as they say," Lavrov told journalists at the briefing.

The Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria has regularly denied reports of a chlorine bomb allegedly being dropped on Douma by government warplanes and is ready to send its specialists in radiation, chemical and biological defense to the area to collect data that will confirm these claims are fabricated.
