Trump warns Russia, Iran about Syria connections

May ready to bypass Parliament & approve UK military intervention in Syria – BBC

President Trump said Saturday morning airstrikes in Syria overnight were "perfectly executed", hours after he announced the US, United Kingdom and France launched precision missile strikes in Syria in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria last weekend.

Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the Director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon, says the USA -led airstrikes against Syria has been "a very serious blow".

"This persistent pattern of behaviour must be stopped - not just to protect innocent people in Syria from the horrific deaths and casualties caused by chemical weapons but also because we can not allow the erosion of the global norm that prevents the use of these weapons".

A chemical weapons storage facility, located west of Homs. He also said 105 missiles were launched by air and sea.

The US, UK and France have bombed multiple government targets in Syria in retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons attack by the regime of Bashar al-Assad on a Damascus suburb last week.

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. Could not have had a better result. "The global community should be determined to stop the use of such weapons and act in unity by doing so", the ministry said on Twitter on Saturday.

The French Ambassador to the UN Francois Delattre said that the Syrian regime is using bad and destructive weapons against civilians, and that the list of its violations is long.

Jaish al-Islam has said it only agreed to the deal because of the Syrian government's purported use of toxic chemicals on Douma, which medics said killed more than 40 people.

Two US officials said attacks could continue beyond tonight, with a senior administration official saying "this isn't over".

Syrian TV showed police waving Syrian flags apparently on the edge of the town just east of Damascus, and said the "terrorist presence" in Douma will end "in a few hours".

This photo released by the Syrian official news agency SANA, shows smoke, rising after US -led airstrikes targeting different parts of the Syrian capital Damascus in retaliation for the country's alleged use of chemical weapons early Saturday. "It is not about regime change", she said.

The current escalation of the situation in Syria "has a destructive effect on the whole system of global relations", the Kremlin said. Syrian air defenses responded to the joint strikes by the United States, France and Britain. The targets included a scientific research facility near Damascus, a chemical weapons storage facility west of the city of Homs, and a third location near Homs that contained both a command post and a chemical weapons equipment storage facility, the US military said.

The US then endorsed a Russian backed plan to remove chemical stocks from Syria and more than 1,300 tons of chemical agents were removed.

Following the US-led strikes, however, "we consider it possible to return to examination of this issue not only in regard to Syria but to other countries as well", Rudskoi said.

Russian Federation and Iran, supporters of the Assad regime, condemned the strikes.

"As always, we oppose the use of force in worldwide relations and call for respect for other countries' sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity", a spokesperson for the Chinese government said.
