Led Coalition Launches Attacks On Syria

"We can not tolerate the recurring use of chemical weapons, which is an immediate danger for the Syrian people and our collective security", a statement from the Elysee presidential office said.

The evil and the despicable attack left mothers and fathers, infants and children, thrashing in pain and gasping for air. In April 2017, Mr. Trump ordered a strike of almost 60 Tomahawk missiles that destroyed a Syrian air base days after Assad used sarin gas in an attack that killed dozens of civilians, many of them children.

Dunford said the US used its regular communication channels with the Russians to inform them about the USA aircraft, but did not warn the Russians about the targets.

"We are trying to stop the murder of innocent people".

Syrian state news termed the strikes "a flagrant violation of worldwide law" and said the intervention "is doomed to fail".

The comments were a nod to the poisoning of a former Russian double agent and his daughter in Salisbury, England, last month with a nerve agent that sparked a fierce diplomatic dispute between a number of Western nations and Russia, which the US and others blamed for the attack. The Pentagon said it would provide a more detailed assessment on Saturday morning.

Syrian state television reportedly confirmed that there were strikes in Damascus and Homs on Friday night.

"We're again confident that both Syria had responsibility in this chemical weapons attack, but we also hold Russian Federation responsible for their failure to stop chemical weapons attacks from taking place", said White House press secretary Sarah Sanders. "Establishing this deterrent is a vital national security interest of the United States", Trump said.

Western powers are thought to be preparing for strikes but Russian Federation, a Syrian ally, opposes such action.

Opposition forces, including the Islamic State, may try to take advantage of a weakened Assad.

That walked back a Trump tweet Wednesday that announced strikes "are coming", and warned Syrian ally Russian Federation against trying to shoot the USA missiles down.

Russian military sources told Kommersant this week that a USA strike on Russia's air base or naval facility in Syria would have catastrophic consequences. Officials said Thursday the trio has yet to reach firm agreement on the scale or timing of a response. The source says they are "significantly enhanced" in terms of anti-strike and anti-aircraft capabilities.

Russian military bizarrely claims United Kingdom staged Syrian chemical attack
Due to the hotline, the USA said there was never a chance of direct conflict between regular American and Russian forces. Putin's defence ministry told the state run RIA news agency: "They are the guarantors of law and order in the town".

Important Factors to Analyse a Good Investment: Comcast Corporation (CMCSA)
The cable giant reported $0.49 earnings per share for the quarter, topping analysts' consensus estimates of $0.47 by $0.02. After this sale, 60,998 common shares of CMCSA are directly owned by the insider, with total stake valued at $2,081,252.

But as the conflict got more complex - Russian Federation launched its air campaign in Syria in September 2015 and Turkey a few days before - the USA found itself increasingly caught up in frictions with other regional players, and at times acted against threats or the repeated use of chemical weapons against civilians.

The White House said Trump would talk to British and French leaders later on Thursday. "No nation can succeed in the long run by promoting rogue states, brutal tyrants, and murderous dictators". Increased engagement from our friends, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Egypt, and others can ensure that Iran does not profit from the eradication of ISIS.

Mattis, however, suggested the evidence of sarin was so far inconclusive.

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

His generals pushed back, not wanting to escalate tensions with those two countries, the officials said.

The ambassador urged Britain, France and the United States "not to bring the world to such a risky threshold". "Could be very soon or not so soon at all!"

So there is no practicable alternative to the use of force to degrade and deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian Regime. Assad's recent attack - and today's response - are the direct result of Russia's failure to keep that promise.

Although Syria's military had moved aircraft and other military assets in the days preceding Friday's strike, Dunford said he did not believe it had moved chemical weapons materials.

"The objective of our actions tonight is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread, and use of chemical weapons".

British Prime Minister Theresa May said in her country Saturday, according to Reuters, that the allied response was "not about intervening in a civil war".

The allies of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad were eager on Friday to lay blame for the crisis not with him but with Trump.

He said: "In Syria, we need to demonstrate that we are willing to use force and that's what the President is doing".
