Monday that medics in Syria's Douma have received no patients with signs of chemical poisoning.

"Representatives of the Reconciliation Center interviewed doctors and employees of the hospital in the town of Duma. They denied the reports about allegedly receiving patients with symptoms of chemical poisoning," a press release, issued by the ministry said, Sputnik reported.

Russian Foreign Ministry said before that the information attacks about the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government forces were aimed at covering up terrorists and justifying possible external military action.

The ministry warned against any military action based on far-fetched and fabricated reports, adding that it might have severe consequences.

On April 7, several media outlets, citing Syrian militants, accused Damascus of using chemical weapons in Douma in Syria's Eastern Ghouta. US President Donald Trump’s Security Advisor Tom Bossert said next day that he did not rule out military actions against the Syrian government in connection with the reports. At the same time, Trump accused Russia and Iran of supporting Syrian leader Bashar Assad.
