Syrians show support for Assad in Damascus rally

The OPCW team arrived in Syria shortly before the air strikes and met with Syrian officials. For that, the USA and Russian Federation have to work together under a United Nations mandate.

But Russia has blocked countless resolutions against its Syrian ally and the regime has appeared determined to continue its military reconquest of the country.

According to American officials, the operation involved three US destroyers, a French frigate and a USA submarine located in the Red Sea, the Gulf and the eastern Mediterranean.

"We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences", he said. "The strategy failed. It must be time for a new one".

"The coalition strike in Syria is a measured response to Assad's barbaric use of chemical weapons".

FILE - President Trump speaks in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House on, April 13, 2018, in Washington, about the United States' military response to Syria's April 7 chemical weapons attack. "Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible", he added, an apparent reference to Trump's mention of President Vladimir Putin in his speech. And in London, British Prime Minister Theresa May was to face an emergency parliamentary debate Monday over her country's part in the operation.

"They will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical weapons use".

"It proves high efficiency of the Syrian armament and professional skills of the Syrian servicemen trained by the Russian specialists", Rudskoy said at a Ministry of Defense media briefing. For now, it doesn't appear that Russian Federation is heeding the call by U.S. State Department Press Secretary Heather Nauert who said that Russian Federation "needs to take responsibility".

USA to announce more sanctions against Russian Federation
French president Emmanuel Macron claimed on Sunday that his country convinced Donald Trump to keep an American presence in Syria. Haley made clear the United States won't be pulling troops out of Syria right away, saying USA involvement there 'is not done'.

The US said it suspected sarin gas also was used.

In 2013, Trump vehemently bashed Obama for hinting about the military actions of the US against Syria. Haley stressed the US was "not looking for war" and "not looking to kill people".

Around 75 people, including children, were killed in the Douma assault, United Kingdom officials have said, while 500 people were treated in the attack's aftermath with symptoms consistent with chemical weapons exposure, the World Health Organization reported, citing its partners on the ground.

But Haley said the airstrikes accomplished their goal.

The US has about 2000 troops on the ground in Syria as advisers to a makeshift group of anti-Islamic State fighters known as the Syrian Democratic Forces. That's why this attempt to assert them with force does not surprise me at all. Despite bashing Obama for it, he went ahead and did exactly the same and gave Russian Federation and Iran a heads up that he would fire missiles.

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani, right, shakes hands with Russian President Vladimir Putin during their meeting at the Saadabad Palace in Tehran, Iran, November 1, 2017.

Putin, the Kremlin added, stressed that if "such actions, carried out in violation of the UN Charter, continue, it will inevitably lead to chaos in global relations". The NATO alliance gave its full backing; NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said in Brussels that the attack was about ensuring that chemical weapons can not be used with impunity.

The officials said they had videos and photos showing the remnants of at least two chlorine barrel bombs from the attacks with features consistent with chlorine barrel bombs from past attacks.
