Russia Slams Western Attack on Syria as Undermining Peace

Trump: US, allies attack Syria to stop chemical weapons

Congressman Vern Buchanan said that the strike against Syria by the US, British and French forces was a measured response to Assad's use of internationally banned chemical weapons.

At the briefing, Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie, said three sites that are "fundamental components of the regime's chemical weapons infrastructure" were struck.

Syrian state media slammed Western strikes on Saturday as illegal and "doomed to fail", after the US, France, and Britain launched a joint operation against the Damascus government. The targets of that strike included Syrian aircraft, aircraft shelters, petroleum and logistical storage facilities, ammunition supply bunkers, air defense systems and radar.

The Russian Ministry of Defense said Syria's Soviet-made air defense systems shot down all 12 cruise missiles at the Dumayr air base east of Damascus.

The strikes against Bashar al-Assad's Syrian regime early Saturday came in response to an alleged chemical attack on the rebel holdout of Douma outside the capital a week ago.

Canada became the latest to lay the blame for a deadly chemical-weapons attack in Syria last week at Syrian President Bashar Assad's doorstep, despite Russian suggestions to the contrary.

Olivier Giroud brace seals Chelsea comeback at Southampton

Trump's tweet Saturday morning recalled former President George W. Bush's infamous declaration, standing aboard an aircraft carrier in 2003, that the USA had accomplished its mission in Iraq.

As pictures of the bombing raids aftermath continue to emerge, Mr Trump said he "could not have had a better result". Trump called the mission "accomplished". He also added that Russian President Vladimir Putin had guaranteed a 2013 worldwide agreement for Assad to get rid of all of his chemical weapons.

French President Emmanuel Macron said France had joined the U.S. and United Kingdom because "we can not tolerate the recurring use of chemical weapons, which is an immediate danger for the Syrian people and our collective security".

The Pentagon official said the allied forces' attack was met with no resistance.

Mrs May said "every possible diplomatic channel" had been explored before authorising the strikes, adding that it was not a decision she had taken lightly.

The US president had sharply critical words for both Russian Federation and Iran, which have backed Assad's government.

The senior administration official said, "What you've seen tonight is not the end of the United States response".

"Russia convenes an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss aggressive actions of the U.S. and its allies", Putin said in a statement published on the Kremlin Web site.

"Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer is calling the airstrikes "appropriate", but says "the administration has to be careful about not getting us into a greater and more involved war in Syria".

The attack also drew criticism from many of Trump's most ardent supporters in the US.

Syria's foreign ministry on Saturday denounced Western strikes as a "brutal, barbaric aggression" hours after the US, France, and Britain launched a joint operation against military installations.
