union. bank. c.e.o. . good to have you with us tonight u.s. president is promising action after yet another chemical weapons attack in syria he says the next twenty four hours how to respond to what he calls a heinous attack which claimed forty including those of children on saturday meanwhile in a separate development syria and. are blaming israel for an overnight missile
attack on a syrian air. at least fourteen people were killed in that incident. missiles flare in the dark hours of the morning according to russian and syrian military they were fired from two israeli fighter jets although israel has declined to comment the missiles found their target an air base in the province of holmes used by the syrian regime and its allies at least fourteen fighters were killed according to observers days earlier bombs fell on the town of duma the last remaining rebel stronghold in eastern it's alleged they were carrying poison gas according to observers at least forty people were killed and hundreds wounded in the attack many of the victims were children said to be smelling strongly of chlorine leading a wave of international condemnation the u.s. president donald trump insists the syrian government will pay
a big price for using the gas and he says action is imminent like to begin by condemning the here's a tack on innocence. with chemical weapons it was trophies of course. it was horrible i mean with our military and everybody else. insulated decisions over the next twenty four to forty eight hours civilians in eastern guta have endured weeks of pump out mint as the syrian government tries to root out opposition many have now given up evacuating the region in bus convoys to territory still under rebel control syria denies its government forces launched a chemical assault it says its troops are dancing on duma without any need for poison gas. but the chorus of shock and anger at the attack is likely only to grow louder. well the u.n.
security council is currently holding an emergency session on the situation in syria i asked our washington correspondent alexander phenomena about the chances of a u.n. resolution condemning the chemical weapons attack the united states is urging the security council to adopt a resolution that would condemn the continuous use of chemical weapons in syria and that would reestablish and u.n. investigative body to determine whether a chemical weapons were used this time however it's not clear at the moment where there will be a vote on this resolution and if yes russia will try to use its veto power to block and the measures threatening the syrian offensive against rebels in order to protect the syrian government and alexander it was just a few days ago when the u.s. president told cheering supporters that he was going to hold the u.s.
out of syria very soon now he says he wants to take major decisions within the next twenty four to forty eight hours so is there a strategy a coherent strategy on syria coming out of the white house. the trump in its mission doesn't seem to have a coherent strategy on syria as you said president trump has been talking to his aides for months now that he would like to pull out of syria and now he threatens the use of force in response to this reported chemical attack in syria and many here say that he put himself in a very difficult situation because no not taking action would be a moral a strategic fiasco and then many experts say that if he doesn't follow through
he is going to look weak in the eyes of russia and iran is speaking of russia. mr trump was pressed on russia's role in this alleged chemical weapons attack and the u.s. president said that the russian president mr putin may bear responsibility what do you make of that. i think that it is quite significant because it was the first time that the president's trump has personally criticized the russian president he's administration has taken lately tough stance on russia criticizing the russian government for its role in ukraine and syria but presidents one was always very positive talking about bloody me of poutine as showing that he is very interested in having a good personal relationship with vladimir putin and is now this criticism so some coming teachers here are all of the you mean that poutine bromance might
