Assad can not be part of Syria solution, says German foreign minister

The strikes, in collaboration with the U.S. and France, are in response to an alleged chemical attack on the Syrian town of Douma last week. It has met with Syrian officials but has not visited the town at the centre of the controversy.

President Donald Trump reportedly favored bombing Russian and Iranian targets in Syria, before Pentagon chief James Mattis talked the United States leader out of it. Could not have had a better result.

Mrs. Sanders aid USA policy in Syria "hasn't changed". "So it was mission accomplished".

Germany didn't join the United States, Britain and France in the strikes, though Chancellor Angela Merkel has called the attack "necessary and appropriate". The U.N. Security Council was meeting at Moscow's request.

President Bashar al-Assad's government said on Monday it was ready to cooperate and facilitate the work of the OPCW team, but did not say when they would go to the site.

Syria and its main allies Iran and Russian Federation blamed Israel for that attack.

Lt. Gen. William C. Mayville Jr., Joint Staff Director of Operations Director of Operations, speaks about airstrikes in Syria during a briefing at the Pentagon September 23, 2014 in Washington, DC. The Higgins destroyer launched 23 missiles in all, the military added.

McKenzie said 105 USA and allied missiles were fired, of which 66 were Tomahawk cruise missiles launched from aboard three Navy ships and one Navy submarine.

And he shot down the Syrian government's claim to have taken out a dozen allied missiles in the course of the attack. Syria has denied the accusation.

The US, which took the lead in striking Syria's suspected chemical weapons facilities, recently suspended $200m of funds for recovery efforts in Syria.

Nooo! Seven counties have been issued with a Status Yellow rain warning
Highest temperatures of 11 to 14 degrees with fresh to strong and gusty southeast winds, veering southwesterly later in the day". The alert is also in place for Galway, Tipperary, Waterford, Mayo, Sligo, Cork and Kerry.

The funds will be allocated to NGOs and UN agencies working on the ground in Syria, including the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the French president's office said. Assad's Barzah research and development center in the Damascus area was destroyed, the general said.

"It's impossible to say at this point the mission has been accomplished", King, who caucuses with Democrats, said on CNN's "State of the Union".

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned of global "chaos" on Sunday in a phone conversation with Iran's president as the two men discussed the US -led strike on Syria.

The Russian military, meanwhile, claims to have struck down a majority of the missiles. Inspectors from the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog group were in Damascus and had been expected to head to Douma on Saturday.

"Chemical weapons were used on Syrian men, women, and children in Douma".

Chlorine, in contrast, has been used more widely in Syria's conflict without past USA reprisals, and the chemical itself is far easier to find and weaponize, experts say. In the face of substantial evidence to the contrary, Russia's pushback on behalf of Syria and Assad is significant.

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. That suggests that despite Russia's warnings of dire consequences, it appears Russian commanders are being extremely careful not to respond in a way that could escalate tensions with the USA into a shooting war.

"This is hard to do in a situation like this", he said, in light of the volatility of chemical agents.

Syrian media, Russian and Syrian officials have sought to downplay the impact of the joint airstrikes, saying the Syrian air defenses have intercepted most of the missiles.

On Monday, the White House walked back her statement and said that it has not yet made a decision on sanctions on Russian Federation. But the description from an ally put things differently.
