As Western leaders remain undecided on how to deal with an alleged (proved to be false) chemical attack in Syria, a report says that they might attack the war-ravaged country by Thursday.
The Daily Telegraph reported Wednesday that strikes against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad “could begin as early as Thursday night.”
This is while British Prime Minister Theresa May has not yet reached a final decision to join forces with the United States and France against Syria.
However, she has ordered British submarines to move within missile range of Syria to be ready for possible strikes.
Britain reportedly hopes to fire Tomahawk cruise missiles against Syria from its submarines.
According to the White House, US President Donald Trump has not laid out any timetable for action, either.
Trump had earlier tweeted that missiles “will be coming” and Russia should “get ready.”
His stance was toned down by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who asserted that Trump has a number of options, and not just the military one.
