Deep State Led to Attack on Syria

Deep State Led to Attack on Syria

Guterres says: "Any use of chemical weapons is abhorrent".

"The use of chemical weapons by anyone, anywhere, under any circumstances is illegal and utterly reprehensible", Mr Turnbull said.

The strikes risked raising tension in an already combustible region but appeared designed not to trigger a military response from Russian Federation and Iran.

Russia's 2015 decision to enter the conflict, backing Assad, turned the tide of the war and helped government forces recapture much of the territory held by rebels. Again, we are being threatened.

The United States, France and Britain launched retaliatory strikes on the Syrian regime a week after an alleged chemical attack on an ex-rebel town, despite warnings from Russian Federation.

At 2am (GMT) President Trump called a press conference to declare he had officially ordered an air strike on Syria.

On previous occasions when chemical weapons have been used "any attempt to hold the perpetrators to account has been blocked by Russian Federation at the (United Nations) Security Council", May said, adding she feared "diplomatic action on its own will be no more successful than it was in the past".

The wave of strikes is the most significant attack against President Bashar al-Assad's government by western powers in seven years of Syria's civil war.

In his remarks, Trump said he holds Russian Federation directly responsible for the attack on Douma, saying Moscow failed to live up to its 2013 promise to guarantee Syria eliminated its arsenal of chemical weapons.

In a statement issued by the Kremlin, the Russian leader said Moscow is calling an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council over the strike launched by the US, Britain and France.

Other sites near Damascus were also targeted in the assault which US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis called a "one-time shot".

It said earlier that none of the Western strikes in Syria had hit areas covered by Russia's air defenses around its Hmeimim air base and naval facility in Tartus.

French President Emmanuel Macron said in a statement that a target of the strike was the Syrian government's "clandestine chemical arsenal". "We confined it to the chemical weapons-type targets".

A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is underway. But the damage was limited, and a defiant Assad returned to episodic use of chlorine and perhaps other chemicals.

In a Saturday statement, the Iranian Foreign Ministry denounced the US-led coalition's attacks on Syria as "a flagrant breach of worldwide laws" and "a violation of Syria's right to national sovereignty and territorial integrity".

Boris Johnson says the world is 'united in its disgust for any use of chemical weapons, especially against civilians'.

The official acknowledged that could require a more sustained USA air and naval presence in the region, as well as intensified satellite and other surveillance of Syria.

Both local lawmakers and Syrians are reacting Friday night to President Donald Trump's announcement of strikes in Syria.

At a Pentagon briefing Friday, US officials described the strikes as a joint operation consisting of British, American and French forces.

An official says in a statement Saturday that President Donald Trump made clear a year ago that the use of chemical weapons was a red line not to be crossed.

US President Donald Trump's also slammed Russian Federation and Iran for backing the Assad regime in Syria.

In a direct address to the two countries, he asked, "What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men and women and children?"

Parly said cruise missiles were fired and an air raid was launched from multiple air bases in France, the AP reported. It reports however at least 70 cases of respiratory difficulties among civilians after regime air strikes, saying 11 people had died.

"Never said when an attack on Syria would take place".
