President Donald Trump had said Sunday that there would be a "big price to pay" for the attack that killed dozens of people in Douma outside Damascus, according to local medical personnel.

Russian Federation and Syria claim Israel conducted the confusing pre-dawn airstrike on a Syrian airbase Monday.

The European Union also said evidence pointed to the use of chemical weapons by Assad's forces. Israel has neither confirmed nor denied that it was behind the attack. Douma was the only town left holding out.

In 2013, also in Eastern Ghouta, a sarin attack killed more than 1,000 people - an event that prompted then president Barack Obama to threaten military action against the Syrian government.

Syria denies ever using chemical weapons during the war and says it eliminated its chemical arsenal under a 2013 agreement brokered by the USA and Russian Federation.
