Russia says no evidences found on chemical attack accusation

(MENAFN) After the allegations of bombing Syria's Douma with chemical attack, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has stated that there are no evidences found of a chemical weapons attack in Syria's formerly terrorist-held town.

As militias started to leave the town, Russian specialists and aid workers had visited the area.

While the US and France threatened a "joint, strong response" to the alleged attack, the United Nations Security Council will discuss the allegations later on Monday.

The Russian denial came hours after a deadly attack on a Syrian military airport, which Moscow and the Syrian government blamed on Israel.

This comes after hours of deadly attack of Syrian airport that followed US President Donald Trump's warning that there would be a "big price" to pay for the use of chemical weapons.
