US President Donald Trump has tweeted that Russia should “get ready” for missiles to be fired into Syria, in response to an alleged chemical attack at the weekend.


In his tweet, Mr Trump called Mr Assad a “gas killing animal.”

On Saturday, Syrian opposition activists, rescue workers and medics said the rebel-held town of Douma in the Eastern Ghouta region had been attacked by government forces using bombs filled with toxic chemicals.

President Bashar al-Assad’s government denies being behind any chemical attack.

In a separate tweet, Mr Trump said relations with Russia are “worse than ever.”
