European Union spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic said that over the weekend and early Monday as the reports came in of another atrocity in Syria, the European Union "learned from several sources" to shape its conviction "that it is the Syrian regime which is responsible" when it comes to the suspected chemical attack.
In a separate incident on Saturday, 41 people were reported killed and hundreds wounded in an alleged poison gas attack in the town of Douma, according to the Syrian American Medical Society, a nonprofit medical relief organization. Reports said that Trump's comment has come a year and a day after the U.S. fired cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase in retaliation for a deadly sarin gas attack in 2017. More than 30 of the victims were children.
What kind of gas was used in the latest attack in Syria?

"From what we hear now, I am afraid they are looking for a military option, which is very, very risky", he said after the United Nations meeting, where he said Russian Federation had investigated the scene in Douma and found no evidence that chemical weapons were used.
In a subsequent report, Fars said a third fighter called Mehdi Lotfi Niasar has been killed in the attack.
There was no immediate confirmation on the origin of the objects or whether they were airplanes or missiles.
The U.N. Security Council planned to hold an emergency meeting Monday to discuss the chemical attack.
Ultimately, however, the Syrian government agreed to destroy its stockpiles of the weapon, and the USA did not respond with strikes. "There has also been shelling on Damascus city, reportedly killing civilians".
The Syrian government denied its forces had launched any chemical assault. Earlier, the Syrians had accused the US of the attack, but Washington denied that claim.
According to the Syrian media, the country's air defenses had come face to face with a missile attack during which almost 8 missiles were shot down.
Monday's missile attack followed a suspected poison gas attack on Saturday on the last remaining foothold for the Syrian opposition in the eastern suburbs of Damascus.
"We decisively deny that information", the head of Russia's Reconciliation Center in Syria, Major Gen. Yuri Yevtushenko, told Interfax, referring to allegations that the chemical attack was caused by a chlorine bomb dropped by pro-Assad forces. Media outlets such as the Associated Press and BBC said the report could not be independently confirmed. "He has challenged Assad in the past not to use chemical weapons".
The U.S. government is still trying to verify what happened. "Israel and the USA are the only two countries that could have carried this out, and Israel has operated in this area before". He repeated that he wanted the USA military out of the country in a press conference on Tuesday.
"In this context we are taking action with all means, over time". "We'll be successful against anybody militarily, but sometimes it's time to come back home - and we're thinking about that very seriously".
