U.S. President Donald Trump told Russia that missiles "will be coming" to Syria, as Washington mulls a response to the suspected chemical weapons attack.

 
In a weekend tweet, trump has accused "President Putin, Russia and Iran" of being responsible for the attack due to their backing of the Syrian government.
 
On Wednesday morning President Trump tweeted that "Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and 'smart!'"
 
Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova responded on Facebook by saying that a missile strike could undermine the work of international inspectors who will examine the site of the suspected chemical attack.
   
Zakharova wrote the so-called "smart" missiles should be fired at terrorists, not at the legitimate government which has been fighting terrorists.
   
Activists, local rescuers, and rebels in Syria claim that Syrian government forces used chlorine gas on Saturday in an attack in Douma, a rebel-held area near capital Damascus.
   
The Syrian Foreign Ministry has denied the accusations.
