russia has told the united states it's smart missiles should be aimed at terrorists not at the syrian government this after the us president donald trump warned of a missile strike in syria following a suspected chemical attack in duma on twitter he wrote russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at syria get ready russia because they will be coming nice and new and smart the added you shouldn't be partners with a gas killing an animal who kills his people and enjoys it will trump tweeted after an early a warning from the russian ambassador that any u.s. missiles would be shot down washington has been threatening military action after the alleged chemical attack russia's defense ministry has called it a fabrication saying there's no evidence of poisonous substances but you put your. but you get there peter which i want to stress on the ninth of april the day after
7:03 pm
the alleged chemical attack in duma russian military specialists in the area of radiation chemical and defense and also medics arrived in the place of the silage chemical weapons incident they took samples of the soil and collected the remains of the so-called use of chemical weapons their expertise was conducted and it showed the absence of chlorine or poisonous substances well world health organization says that more than five hundred people have been treated in duma with symptoms suggesting the use of toxic chemicals they include difficulty breathing and disruption to the central nervous system the u.n. health agency says this is based on reports from its partners in duma it's demanding immediate unhindered access to provide care for the victims we have correspondents want to bring events for us from washington moscow and on techies border with syria first though let's go to our white house correspondent kimberly how get so those who are hearing that president trump has made his intentions regarding syria very clear. he seems to enjoy building up this sense of suspense
7:04 pm
but how imminent could any potential military action be. well the white house is saying that in fact the still all options remain on the table so this also said the president's tweets are official white house policy so this is being taken very seriously many though very gaffes the president using social media to essentially almost declare war trying to make sense of whether or not this is another negotiating tactic by the president who often speaks very brashly boldly and then dials back his rhetoric but so far we've really seen no evidence of dialing back just the opposite for days we've seen an intense building of sort of the military option in terms of the consultations that have been going forward with the president his top military leaders there seems to be this evidence that the president is building a case through videos through photographs that a chemical weapon attack has occurred in duma despite the denials by russia and
7:05 pm
syria and certainly we've seen the president conferring with tough world leaders not only the french president but also the british prime minister we've heard on from the president on monday mariam that in fact of the solution would be made sometime within twenty four to forty eight hours that window appears to be closing still we have no decision at the same time it appears that the president is saying as he said all along that he may not tell us what is going to happen until it occurs after the fact that something that he said to reporters in the cabinet room on monday so we're left with this very muddy sort of trying to attempt to read the tealeaves if you will in terms of the president signals that still appear to be as you point out ratcheting up with some sort of military option soon to be imminent all right thanks very much kimberly allocate at the white house let's go to war a challenge now in moscow and i'm just reading something in about the kremlin saying that we don't participate in twitter diplomacy as they describe it following
7:06 pm
those threats made by president trump on twitter. the russians have been very keen to say to warn the u.s. against doing anything rash what's the latest from the kremlin now. yeah the russian government is basically saying don't do anything that's going to destabilize the situation in syria any further now of course donald trump's tweets iran seems to be inspired by something that the russian ambassador to lebanon was saying to hezbollah controlled t.v. channel basically that. the russian air defense systems in syria would be ready to shoot out of the sky any american missiles that came into the country now he was referring there to something that was said about a month ago by the russian chief of the general staff general gerasim off but he
7:07 pm
didn't get it quite according to what gerasim off actually said got to ask him off said a month ago that only if american missiles were threatening russian troops russian lives russian infrastructure in syria would this kind of response be taken but the message from this ambassador perhaps erroneously about misremembering what his generals office said was that actually any american airstrikes would be blown out of the sky any way that the the general russian response to what. donald trump tweeted earlier has been not to take the bait to maintain the line that what happened in duma was a provocation. was nothing to do with the syrian government the foreign ministry here says that any u.s. missile should be aimed at the terrorists in syria not so the legitimate government and as you say dmitri peskov the kremlin spike's spokesperson says we don't engage in twitter diplomacy we take a much more serious approach is. thank you very much rory chalons in moscow let's
7:08 pm
go to sullivan john eight now is and gas and head on the tacky syria border and of course we have seen the humanitarian situation in syria deteriorating to new levels with each week with each month and here the pa says i must be concerned about what the military action my how far the military action might impact the situation for civilians. omarion it's a strange rate right now in syria where people have been waiting on the spread before to forty eight hour period but president trump announce that he will be launching strikes and then taunting the russian government again today that he will be launching this missile strike very soon and it's imminent and that doesn't seem to be bothering a lot of people on the ground especially the fighters to say one that this isn't the first time that the u.s. will be launching strikes on russian and city and government targets and b. we know that according to the different confliction agreement between the united states and russia the united states will tell the russians in advance like it did
7:09 pm
the previous time that it would be launching these strikes on the ground inside the boom or that's the last remaining rebel stronghold people have been telling us about how this airstrike this weapon attack on south of this chemical attack achieved its objective it broke the will of those fighters in their thousands who've been besieged inside duma for years the allowed russian police to come in and inspect this area according to the russian media they did not find anything which they guessed that a chemical attack was carried out and according to doctors on the ground who have been witness to this attack and have been treating patients they say they've been treating people in their hundreds in these chemical attacks so it's a strange wave of strikes that are pending but according to syrians and activists on the ground these might not change anything for them all right thank you and some avenger of aid and and gas.

7:14 pm
speaking to justin bronco a research fellow at a power in technology here in london and he said that this activity from the who sees is aimed at reinforcing their presence and their man power in the region i think the timing is potentially more about keeping up a steady drumbeat of missile attacks to show you send a message to saudi arabia but also to other actors who are watching in the region and beyond that the threat isn't going away that the who things are not being militarily defeated. and probably hoping to some sort of message stop a wait and starve them out approach isn't working so perhaps the timestream time has come for something else i believe from the perspective maybe dialogue. i'm not sure that's going to work but it's certainly an interesting fact to the movies have kept up this regular drumbeat of strikes rather than trying to concentrate all their available assets for want of a big action and without as they are still to come for you on the program to find
