'Mission accomplished' declares Donald Trump after Syria air strikes

US UK and France launch military strikes on Syria

Francois Delattre, the permanent representative of France to the U.N., said the evidence of Syria's use of chemical weapons against its own people was clear and that the United Nations' mission should be to hold war criminals accountable. Barzah is the location of a major Syrian scientific research center.

The strikes were created to destroy the Assad regime's ability to use chemical weapons, and McKenzie reported that the operation "significantly crippled" storage facilities in Syria, adding that "none of our aircraft or missiles involved in this operation were successfully engaged". The coalition has confirmed that three sites were specifically targeted.

"AP reports that AP reporter in Damascus says the US, UK and France attacks have turned the sky orange, and explosions are being heard to the east, west and south of Damascus as the U.S.", NBC News reported. McKenzie says the missiles were fired after the "last impact" was over.

But it seems the tripartite alliance is prepared allow Assad to keep killing Syrians on massive scale using conventional weapons.

French President Emmanuel Macron said in a statement that a target of the strike was the Syrian government's "clandestine chemical arsenal". Pictures from opposition supporters circulated on social media showing lifeless bodies piled in basements.

The PM has not ruled out further action if Syria continues to use chemical weapons. Last year, the USA carried out the attack on its own.

After an attack on eastern Ghouta in 2013 that killed more than 1,000 people, Assad agreed to give up all his chemical weapons as then U.S. President Barack Obama threatened military actions.

Pentagon officials said the attacks targeted Assad's programs to develop and produce such weapons.

Behind closed doors, Trump pushed for a more aggressive response than the one taken past year, wanting options that would involve attacks on targets in Syria associated with Russian Federation and Iran, officials said.

Former NATO Commander Says We've Got The Regime's Attention
Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said the strikes were about making sure chemical weapons can not be used with impunity.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said he condemned the Western strikes "in the most serious way".

In the Syrian capital, Damascus, hundreds gathered to show their defiance in the face of western attacks, honking their vehicle horns, flashing victory signs and waving Syrian flags after the airstrikes.

Turkey, who has opposed the Assad regime, called the joint airstrikes an "appropriate response to the chemical attack" in Douma.

The White House said doctors and aid organizations on the ground in Douma reported "the strong smell of chlorine and described symptoms consistent with exposure to sarin".

He said France, together with the US and the United Kingdom, would soon submit a draft resolution on Syria, aimed at dismantling the chemical weapons program in the country, eradicating terrorism, ensuring a cease-fire and finding a sustainable political solution to the conflict.

President Donald Trump is set to address the nation Friday night amid anticipation of a retaliatory strike for an apparent Syrian chemical weapon attack last week. "When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line".

Eight countries voted against the Russian-drafted text on Saturday, while Peru, Kazakhstan, Ethiopia and Equatorial Guinea abstained.

The Russian ambassador to the U.N., Vasily Nebenzia, called the attacks "hooliganism in global relations" and is accusing the US and its allies of acting before worldwide inspectors have concluded their investigation. That should send an unmistakable message to Assad, as well as to the enabling nations of Russian Federation and Iran and regimes in North Korea, China and elsewhere that may be considering a test of Western resolve. The document points to a large number of "reliable" photos and videos of victims suffering from the symptoms of a chemical attack.

"I spoke to the president this morning - and he said that if the Syrian regime uses this poisonous gas again, the United States is locked and loaded".
