Warnings from US President Donald Trump there would be a "big price to pay" for the alleged attack have raised the spectre of an American strike on Syria, setting up a potential confrontation with regime backer Russian Federation.

Syria and its ally Russian Federation deny such an attack happened.

The US and its allies have been considering whether to hit Syria over the suspected poison gas attack that medical relief organisations say killed dozens of people. Officials said at least one helicopter dropped a barrel bomb of chemicals that suffocated a number of civilians, including children.

The announcement read: 'At the president's request, the vice president will travel in his stead.

Mr Trump's decision to cancel his Latin America trip suggests the USA response may involve a larger military operation than a limited strike, says the BBC's Barbara Plett Usher in Washington.

Russia's ambassador Alexander Zasypkin to Lebanon had warned that the federation's military will shoot down U.S. rockets and "even the sources that launched the missiles".

Last year, the USA carried out airstrikes against an airfield outside Homs after the Syrian regime was found to use chemical weapons.

Syria's Foreign Ministry said Washington is using the alleged chemical attack as a pretext to target Syria.

A team of worldwide inspectors is expected to visit Syria to look into the alleged use of chemical weapons in eastern Ghouta, near Damascus.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley told the Security Council on Monday that both Russian Federation and Iran could stop the Syrian government's "murderous destruction", adding that Moscow's hands are "covered in the blood of Syrian children".

The Sound and Picture Organization, an activist collective in eastern Syria, said on Tuesday that Iranian fighters and members of Lebanon's Hezbollah group have evacuated their positions in the Boukamal area, near Iraq's border.

The crisis comes as an investigation into Trump's 2016 presidential campaign metastasizes to envelop his personal lawyer, whose office and hotel room were raided by FBI agents on Monday.

Russian Federation vetoed a US-drafted resolution on setting up a panel to identify the perpetrators of toxic gas attacks after chemical weapons were allegedly used in the rebel-held town of Douma.

Russian Federation and the U.S. blocked attempts by each other in the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday to set up global investigations into chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

On Tuesday, the White House announced that the president was canceling his trip to South America this week in order to oversee the USA response in Syria.

He will remain in Washington to "oversee the American response to Syria", the White House said.
