The threat of military response still hung in air, with French President Emmanuel Macron saying that there's proof that Syrian leader Bashar Al-Assad's regime had used chemical weapons.

There were signs of a global effort to head off a direct confrontation between Russia and the West. The Kremlin said a crisis communications link with the United States, created to avoid an accidental clash over Syria, was in use.

WHO also cited reports about the deaths of more than 70 people who sheltered in basements, saying 43 of those people who died had shown "symptoms consistent with exposure to highly toxic chemicals".

President Trump has sent mixed messages on the U.S. response, warning Russia in a tweet Wednesday to "get ready" for U.S. missile strikes in Syria in retaliation for the attack.

Russian Ambassador Alexander Zasypkin, in comments broadcast on Tuesday evening, said he was referring to a statement by Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Russian armed forces chief of staff.

The U.S. -drafted resolution is expected to be considered this afternoon by Security Council members.

On Wednesday, Trump appeared to suggest airstrikes were imminent, warning Russia, Syria's key ally, to "get ready" for military action.

It also showed the intensity of the proxy war being fought in Syria, where the Assad regime is being propped up by Russia and Iran.

"Once again, all options are on the table", she said.

Addressing the Security Council, Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, said the Washington-drafted "is the bare minimum that the council can do to respond to the attack".

Both Trump and his defense secretary Jim Mattis abruptly cancelled upcoming travel plans Tuesday, as the USS Donald Cook - a guided-missile destroyer - moved to within striking range of Syria.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, an international chemical weapons watchdog organization said Thursday that its team is en route to Syria and will begin work Saturday to investigate the attack.

This is in contrast to an incident one year ago in which the U.S. government had video and other evidence of certain aspects of an actual attack by Syrian aircraft, which involved the use of sarin gas.

A similar assessment regarding Syria's actions was delivered by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, which said pro-Syrian government forces were emptying main airports and military air bases.

Russia has previously voted to block a resolution that would give U.N. investigators a wider mandate on chemical weapons in Syria, Michele added.

Officials from Russia, Assad's patron, warned that their forces would shoot down U.S. missiles. "Even if the US delivers a strike, this won't change the power balance in Syria", the MP said. In the past Trump has vowed to stand up to Syrian President Bashar Assad.

The Russian military said on Wednesday that it was closely monitoring the situation around Syria and was aware of the movements of a U.S. naval force in the area.
