Activist Explains What West Achieves by Striking Syria

Vladimir Putin Says Missile Strikes On Syria Will Make The Humanitarian Catastrophe Worse

The US expressed concerns that Russian Federation may have tampered with evidence at the site.

He also said he convinced his U.S. ally in the strikes, Donald Trump, to limit the targets to chemical weapons sites and for the USA to "stay in Syria in the long term".

The U.S., United Kingdom and France launched strikes on Syria a week after U.S. President Donald Trump said there would be a "big price" to pay for the apparent use of chemical weapons by President Bashar al-Assad's forces in the town of Douma, an attack that killed scores of civilians.

The South African government has reiterated its call for the peaceful resolution of conflict in Syria, following attacks in three separate areas in the country on Friday night.

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

The Security Council held an emergency meeting earlier at the request of Russian Federation, which failed in a bid to condemn the air strikes.

The president told the crowd, "We just had a big successful hit".

The heavily armed, Iranian-backed Shiite Hezbollah movement, which fights alongside the Syrian Army and is represented in the Beirut government, has been a vital ally of Damascus in Syria's war.

A team of independent investigators have been prevented from reaching the scene of an alleged chemical attack by Syrian and Russian officials.

The White House says the USA mission in Syria has not changed, reiterating that President Donald Trump wants American troops home "as quickly as possible".

"Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible", Antonov said in his statement responding to the US-led military action.

"Russia has fully restored the air defense system of Syria, and it continues to improve it over the last six months", he said.

"It is our concern that they [Russians] may have tampered with it with the intent of thwarting the efforts of the OPCW Fact-Finding Mission to conduct an effective investigation", Ward was quoted as saying by Reuters news agency.

Meanwhile, NATO's secretary general said the USA -led airstrikes will reduce the Syrian government's capabilities of carrying out new chemical attacks.

Igor Kirillov, a Russian chemical weapons protection expert in The Hague, said the team is set to visit the site on Wednesday.

British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron were both due to face their respective legislatures on Monday.

On Saturday, the United States, France and Britain launched 105 missiles targeting what the Pentagon said were three chemical weapons facilities in Syria in retaliation for a suspected poison gas attack in Douma on April 7.

The president scoffed at reports that Syrian and Russian air defense systems had shot down dozens of the US missiles.

"Vladimir Putin, in particular, stressed that if such actions committed in violation of the [United Nations] Charter continue, then it will inevitably lead to chaos in global relations", the Kremlin said in a statement obtained by the news service.

The UK opposition leader, Jeremy Corbyn of the Labour Party, also questioned the strikes, saying Saturday that he believed the "action was legally questionable", and called on May to publish the UK attorney general's advice that approved the bombings.

The U.S. ambassador in Moscow, John Huntsman, said in a video, "Before we took action, the United States communicated with" Russia to "reduce the danger of any Russian or civilian casualties".

He said: "The Government's failure to seek - let alone obtain - parliamentary approval for these air strikes sets a precedent for potential and more unsafe future action not just in Syria, but other countries".
