UNSC rejects Russian resolution on Syria attack

Local officials respond to U.S. missile strikes on Syria

The United States said its strikes were a response to President Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons attack on April 7 that administration officials say employed chlorine and perhaps even sarin, a more deadly nerve agent.

For years, U.S. President Donald Trump attacked Barack Obama on a variety of issues, including how much time the former president spent on the golf course and U.S. military involvement in Syria.

Coordinated American, French and British airstrikes were launched late Friday to punish Syrian President Bashar Assad for the suspected use of chemical weapons on his own people earlier this month in Douma, a rebel-held suburb of Damascus, and to deter him from further use of chemical weapons. "When our president draws a red line, our president enforces a red line".

"We are prepared to sustain this pressure, if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will", she said.

France is urging Russian Federation to join a push for a political solution in Syria after joint U.S., French and British attacks on Syrian chemical weapons sites.

White says the target choices were "very methodical", calling it a "deliberate decision" to go after chemical weapons facilities. Its Defense Ministry said that a dozen cruise missiles had targeted Dumayr air base.

A Russian-drafted resolution, which would have condemned the military strikes on Syria carried out by the United States, France and Britain, failed to be adopted by the Security Council.

White said the USA does not seek conflict with Syria but "cannot allow such grievous violations of worldwide law" and attacks on innocent Syrians.

According to the Pentagon, 76 missiles hit the target near Damascus, 22 more rockets were fired at a warehouse west of Homs.

Western powers blamed President Bashar al-Assad, but Syria and its ally Russian Federation categorically denied the claims and accused the West of "fabricating" the incident to justify military action.

"This operation does not represent a change in U.S. policy, nor an attempt to depose the Syrian regime".

Mattis described them as a "one-time shot" to send a strong message to Assad not to use chemical weapons again.

US President Donald Trump on Saturday morning thanked France and the United Kingdom for their participation in the airstrikes against positions of Assad's government, which has been engaged in a seven-year-old civil war against rebel groups and is backed by Russian Federation and Shia militias.

Soussan reiterated a pledge by the Syrian government that the chemical experts would be allow to investigate unimpeded.
