Hours after the Israeli air force carried out an attack on a Syrian airbase (see our related coverage), the Russian foreign Minister Mr Sergei Lavrov claims that the chemical attack in Douma over the weekend, which was the reason for the overnight airstrikes, was nothing but a staged event for which there is no direct proof.

The Russian Foreign Minister, Mr Lavrov: "Our military specialists have visited this place… and they did not find any trace of chlorine or any other chemical substance used against civilians."

Furthermore, Mr Lavrov directly accused Israel for the overnight strike on a Syrian airbase, a development which Damascus and Moscow have both stated was due to a response of the government of Mr Benjamin Netanyahu, an act which the Russian government claims is a "very dangerous development".

Mr Lavrov: "I hope at least that the US military and those of the countries participating in the coalition led by the United States understand that."

As we reported earlier, at least 14 people (including Iranians) were reportedly killed in the overnight strike on the T-4 airbase.

A meeting of the UN Security Council has been called for later on Monday to discuss the crisis later.

If you found no trace of the poisonous agents, wtf killed the people? They are dead-er than shit. Stone cold

No Trace??? Sounds like possibly a military grade high tech poison? I wonder if any of the dead were autopsied to find cause of death? Foaming from the noses isn't a natural death, well not when a massive amount of people die at the same time the with the same conditions. I watched a live leak video that showed docs falling over dead while caring for children, while seeming somewhat fine seconds prior!! This is a sad state of affairs and only brings the world closer to a massive conflict.

Dumbasses! If it was a chemical attack the first responders would have been in chemical suits. They were not in chem suits and therefore would have died by touching anything, even the people they were pulling out. It was a poisonious gas attack if anything, for that is the reason no chemical suits would be needed.

Can anyone say spooks at CIA…
