At a previous confrontation in February, Israel mentioned it took down an Iranian drone flying to its air space on an identical day which Syrian anti aircraft fire attracted an Israeli f16 jet which has been assaulting the positions of Iran-backed forces in Syria.

The official IRAN daily said Col. Mehdi Dehghan, a member of the Guard's aerospace force, was killed in the attack. But it said the suffocations were the result of shelters collapsing on people inside them.

"The Syrian army's use of chemicals does not seem logical since it has the upper-hand in its war against armed terrorists", stressed Qassemi.

In Block's view, "whatever the debate over the JCPOA - the nuclear agreement signed between Iran, six world powers and the European Union in 2015 - a robust consensus in Congress is needed that Iran's military role in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and elsewhere must be countered".

"Accepting Iranian entrenchment in Syria would be to accept Iranians putting a chokehold on us".

Russian Federation has warned that U.S. strikes in Syria would have "grave consequences", according to a Foreign Ministry statement.

Syria's state-run TV reported there were fatalities and injuries. Trump added that a decision would be made in 24 to 48 hours.

US President Donald Trump and his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, spoke by phone and promised a "strong, joint response" to the chemical attack that killed dozens, the White House said on Sunday.

In recent months, Israeli officials have been gravely concerned by Iran's efforts to build permanent military bases inside Syria.

Eastern Ghouta, which is home to almost 400,000 people, fell to multiple militant groups in 2012, months after Syria plunged into crisis and has since served as a launch pad for fatal attacks against residents and infrastructure in Damascus.

He also offered congratulations on the achievements realized by the Syrian Arab Army in Eastern Ghouta.

As Russian troops moved into the area today in the wake of the evacuating fighters, Syrian doctors visited the site of the alleged chemical attack and found no evidence that poisonous gases had been used, Russia's defence ministry said in a statement.
