(CNSNews.com) – As President Trump warned Sunday of a “big price to pay” for yet another suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria, Russia declared that any foreign intervention could “lead to the most serious consequences.”
“It is necessary to warn once again that military intervention under far-fetched and fabricated pretexts in Syria, where Russian servicemen are located at the request of the legitimate government, is absolutely unacceptable and can lead to the most serious consequences,” the foreign ministry in Moscow said in a statement.
The U.S. Defense Department tweeted Monday morning: “At this time, the #DoD is not conducting air strikes in #Syria. However, we continue to closely watch the situation and support the ongoing diplomatic efforts to hold those who use chemical weapons, in Syria and otherwise, accountable.”
