"It takes a very peculiar kind of uniqueness to attack Syria's capital at a time when the country has received a chance for peace at last", Zakharova said in a statement translated by TASS, the Russian state-owned news agency.

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".

Lavrov said that "intelligence agencies of a state that is now striving to spearhead a Russo-phobic campaign were involved in that fabrication". The Kremlin readout said that Putin warned against rushing to blame the Syrian government before conducting a "thorough and objective probe".

"I hope hot heads will cool down and that will be it", he told reporters. He added that the Russian military has proof of British involvement, but didn't immediately present it.

He said there was a heightened "danger of escalation" because of the Russian military presence in Syria. Lavrov said Russian Federation expects the OPCW team to quickly visit the site. "In the USA administration there are specific people who it is possible to talk with".

Russia's ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov, warned that there would be consequences for the US -led military strikes on Syria, adding that it was not acceptable to insult Russia's president.

Meanwhile, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) says experts are travelling to Syria and will start investigations on Saturday.

The Ministry claims the air strikes were a response to the "success" of Al Assad's Syrian army in liberating their territory from global terrorism.

"We are prepared to sustain this pressure, if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will", she said.

We will remind, relations between Russia and great Britain strained after London accused Moscow in the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, deported from the country of the Russian diplomats.

On Thursday, Russia's military said Douma has been brought under full control of the Syrian government under a Russia-mediated deal that secured the evacuation of the rebels and thousands of civilians after it was recaptured by Syrian forces.

On the ground in Syria, rebels in Eastern Ghouta surrendered their heavy weapons and their leader left the enclave, signalling the end of one of the bloodiest assaults of the seven-year war and a major win for the Assad regime.
