BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian government forces and their allies are on alert and taking precautionary measures at military bases and posts across the country amid fears of a U.S. strike in the aftermath of a chemical weapons attack, Syrian war monitors said Tuesday.

The measures come as President Donald Trump is threatening an imminent military strike against Syria, vowing to respond “forcefully” to Saturday’s apparent chemical weapons attack on civilians near Damascus and warning that Russia — or any other nation found to share responsibility — will “pay a price.”

The article went on to state the following:

Syrian opposition activists said 40 people died in Saturday night’s chemical attack in the town of Douma, the last remaining rebel bastion just outside of the Syrian capital, Damascus. The opposition blamed President Bashar Assad’s forces for the attack, accusations the government and its Russian backers strongly deny.
