The officials declined further comment and it was not clear whether the Syrian moves would impact US military planning for potential action against Syria over a suspected poison gas attack, Reuters reported.

But this move could limit the damages that a joint airstrike conducted by the US and its allies would have on the Syrian army, should the Western countries decide to turn words into actions.

A similar assessment was delivered earlier today by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, which said that pro-Syrian government forces were emptying main airports and military air bases.

After days of warnings, US President Mr Trump made clear that he is willing to punish the Syrian government by tweeting earlier today that Russia, one of Syria’s key allies, should “get ready” for missiles to be fired at Damascus.
