The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said in a brief statement after Trump met with Mattis and other members of his National Security Council: "No final decision has been made. Yes, it has happened", she said. That's likely a reference to US smart bombs that, typically, can evade missile-defense systems and then precisely hit a target. It has been unfulfilled because, again, Russia has continually blocked the efforts.
He said: "Our specialists found no traces of toxic substance use".
According toReuters, Russia confirmed that a crisis communications link with the United States, created to avoid an accidental clash over Syria, was still open.
But Obama adviser Frederic Hof believes it's up to Trump to lead in Syria by staying the course in a complex conflict that implicates the entire Middle East and Russia - another Assad supporter. That is enough to build and equip 226 new hospitals.
U.S. President Trump says his predecessor could have ended the Syrian civil war. "We're obviously looking at that very closely".
Department of Defense officials speaking to NBC News did not confirm if they lost any of the drones to crashes as a result of the jamming, but one official did say that the jamming is having an operational impact on military operations in Syria.
"The United States estimates that (President Bashar) Assad has used chemical weapons in the Syrian war at least 50 times", said Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
Mr Corbyn said there must be an inquiry to find out who was responsible.
Asked if there were circumstances in which he would back military action, he replied: "Let's cross that bridge when we get there".
Eurocontrol's warning cited a document from the European Aviation Safety Agency, Europe's safety regulator, a copy of which was not immediately available.
He further noted that given the United States' domestic problems, the country's issues with Russia, and the ongoing investigations into Trump's case, and, in general, the overall domestic situation in the US, the country will not launch a massive strike against Syria.
President Assad will also presumably take added satisfaction from the fact the Eastern Ghouta was the scene of the some of the first major protests in the capital against his rule.
He has now also argued that he never signaled the timing of retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons attack, that he had suggested was imminent a day earlier.
