"The crimes will not remain unanswered", insisted Ali Akbar Velayati, a top adviser to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The Pentagon denied USA involvement in an attack on a missile base Monday in central Syria that killed 14 people.

"The enemies know that they will not make any progress in Syria or in the region, as they have been unable to do so during the past seven years", he stated. The Syrian state news service initially blamed the U.S. for the attack, but it later retracted the charge.

The company said in its statement on Tuesday that it was considering changes to its complicated management structure. VW said earlier on Tuesday that it was considering a change in the CEO job.

Iran on Sunday condemned allegations of a chemical attack on Syrias Eastern Ghouta rebel holdout as a "conspiracy" against its ally President Bashar al-Assad and a pretext for military action.

China said that it supports an investigation into a suspected chemical attack on the Syrian rebel-held town of Douma that has provoked global outrage. Iran has blamed Israel for carrying out the attack on Tyias or T4, near Homs.

Two F-15 aircraft from the Israeli air force delivered a strike against Syria's T-4 airfield with eight guided missiles on Monday, the Russian Defense Ministry said. Israel has neither confirmed nor denied that it was behind the attack.

Two killed in Germany as van ploughs into crowd in Muenster
The driver was a German citizen, said Herbert Reul, state minister for internal affairs in North Rhine-Westphalia state. Ms Adomeit went on to say there was no indication the perpetrator had any political motives for the attack.

Jonathan Schanzer, the senior vice president at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, also predicted a looming "showdown" between Israel and Iran on Syrian soil, going so far as anticipating the Middle East's "worst war" in decades.

"A president who says he wants to get the hell out of Syria is not really in a position to threaten the military progress of the regime", he said. "The possible theaters for doing so are Syria, Lebanon, or anywhere else around the globe, and Iran may employ its characteristic use of terror proxies". The solution he offers is for "America and its allies - the EU, Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Arab states - to drill home to Russian Federation that a permanent Iranian military presence in Syria is unacceptable". Trump added that a decision would be made in 24 to 48 hours.

The Syrian conflict began when the Baath regime, in power since 1963 and led by Assad, responded with military force to peaceful protests demanding democratic reforms during the Arab Spring wave of uprisings, triggering an armed rebellion fuelled by mass defections from the Syrian army.
