World War 3: Russia warns Trump it will ATTACK American troops if US strikes Damascus

RUSSIA has issued a chilling warning to US President Donald Trump as the Syrian conflict threatens to spiral out of control as the Kremlin warned “Attack Damascus and we’ll attack you”.

The threat, issued by Valery Gerasimov, chief of Russia’s General Staff, was widely reported by Russian media sites including state news agency Tass.

Mr Gerasimov cited what he called “reliable information” about militants he claimed were preparing to fake a government chemical attack against civilians.

He claimed the US would use this as a pretext to accuse Syrian government troops, and President Bashar Al Assad, of using prohibited chemical weapons and launch a missile strike on the Syrian capital.

Mr Gerasimov said: “In several districts of Eastern Ghouta, a crowd was assembled with women, children and old people, brought from other regions, who were to represent the victims of the chemical incident.

“In case there is a threat to the lives of our military, the Russian Armed Force will take retaliatory measures both over the missiles and carriers that will use them.”

Responding to the allegations, the US Department of Defence urged Russia to “stop creating distractions” and accused it of “enabling the Assad regime’s brutality”.

The comments come as Syrian President Bashar Al Assad’s regime, which is supported by Russia, continues to carry out airstrikes over the rebel-held enclave of Eastern Ghouta just outside Damascus.

The charity Medicin San Frontieres reported on Friday that 344 people have been wounded and 71 killed in East Ghouta every day for the last fortnight.

Two weeks ago the United Nations Security Council is demanded a ceasefire in Syria to allow allow almost 1,000 sick and wounded civilians to leave so they can get urgent medical treatment.

US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Hailey yesterday warned it was ready to act.

She said: “It is not the path we prefer, but it is a path we have demonstrated we will take, and we are prepared to take again.

“When the international community consistently fails to act, there are times when states are compelled to take their own action.”

Syria has been locked in a brutal civil war for the last seven years following a popular uprising against Assad.

However, Assad’s regime stubbornly clung to power, with the assistance of ally Russia, which has been targeting the rebels. The result is that Assad has regained the upper hand.

In addition, these rebel groups have also been fighting the Islamic State, of ISIS, which still occupies parts of Syria.

Effectively, the war has become a proxy conflict between Russia and the West – although Mr Gerasimov’s words will surely stoke already-heightened tensions still further.

    U.S. troops and equipment and funds should NEVER be used in Syria. America has never been formally invited to “war” in that nation. GET THE HELL OUT NOW BEFORE IT BECOMES THE RUIN OF THE U.S.!
