As President Trump prepared to meet with his national security team Thursday afternoon, a senior administration official said the U.S. was “confident” that Syria used chemical weapons in an attack last week on civilians in a rebel-held town on the outskirts of Damascus.

French President Emmanuel Macron, meanwhile, said he has “proof” chemical weapons were used and said he would decide “in due course” whether to respond with air strikes, the BBC reported.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has declared the U.K. is willing to join military action against Syria, even without the consent of Parliament.

U.S. officials said urine and blood samples from victims of the attack have tested positive for chlorine and a nerve agent.
