The Syrian government has written to US Congress, urging members not to support the use of military force after a chemical attack.
The letter, seen by Sky News, urges Congress "not to rush into any irresponsible reckless action".
"We write to you as fathers and mothers, as members of families and communities which really are not so different to yours," it says.
"Moreover, we write to you as human beings asking: if you bomb us, shall we not bleed? Innocent people will be harmed."
The letter, which references quotes from former president Franklin D. Roosevelt, continues: "We realise that war would be a bloody, destructive,
catastrophic track, which does not have any benefit for all nations".
