The Russian military found out how to jam the U.S. drones from operating in Syria, according to U.S. officials, following a suspected chemical attack in Douma. What does this mean for the US military? Will World War 3 break out of Syria?

U.S. Department of Defense claimed the Russian military and they now have the capability to block signals to their drones flying over Syria. Fears about world war 3 about to break over Syria have been escalating since the chemical attack occurred in Eastern Ghouta. Dozens have been reported dead since then. The U.S. military have been keeping an eye on attacks on their drones but they did find that some of their drones have been jammed. Jamming, or blocking, means that electronic signals sent to a drones reception are disrupted, stopping all communication to and from the craft.

US President Donald Trump today issued a fierce warning to Russia and to Syrian president Bashir al-Assad through Twitter. In the tweet President Trump stated: “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart!’ You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” The United Nations failed to pass any measures to set up an inquiry into the alleged attack on Tuesday, a controversial decision. Both Russia and the US blocked each other’s proposals to set up independent investigations, despite both having the power to investigate.

President Trump issued a warning to Russia.

The US-drafted resolution would have allowed investigators to apportion blame for the suspected attack, while Russia’s version would have left that to the Security Council. The UN session was the latest in a series of showdowns between Russia and the US and saw harsh words exchanged between the countries. Ambassador Nebenzia accused the US of “planting” a resolution” as a justification for military action. “We could find ourselves on the threshold of some very sad and serious events,” he said.

US envoy Nikki Haley responded by calling the vote a “travesty”. She said: “Russia has trashed the credibility of the council. Whenever we propose anything meaningful on Syria, Russia vetoes it.” President Trump has cancelled his first official trip to Latin America so he can focus on Syria. That decision suggests the US response may involve a larger military operation than a limited strike, says the BBC’s Barbara Plett Usher in Washington.
