Several people have died or were hurt after a Syrian military airport was hit by missiles, state media said, amid worldwide alarm over a suspected chemical attack on a rebel-held town. The politician, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about secret military movements, said the atmosphere and USA statements hint at a possible strike, "but there are no indications on the ground so far".
"In this context we are taking action with all means, over time".
The attacks have come almost a week after Trump expressed his desire to bring the US troops back to the country.
Reports said that Trump's comment has come a year and a day after the USA fired cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase in retaliation for a deadly sarin gas attack in 2017.

Britain's Permanent Representative Karen Pierce said the situation today was worse than that during the Cold War because then there was no such flagrant disregard of the universal prohibition against chemical weapons. "US President Donald Trump promised a 'big price to pay" for the suspected chemical attack.
Then, within days the United States military fired cruise missiles at a Syrian airfield where the sarin attack had been launched from.
