Syria Damascus air strikes

Syria Damascus air strikes

Since the USA and its allies attacked Syria Friday in response to alleged chemical weapons attacks on its own people, there has been a significant surge in Russian trolls promoting fake news, the Pentagon announced Saturday.

Trump used the haunting political phrase "Mission Accomplished!" in a tweet Saturday morning to praise the "perfectly executed strike" against Syria.

"A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now under way". Could not have had a better result. She says: "President Assad has an absolutely positive attitude, a good mood". They were very effective. "Mission Accomplished!" Donald Trump wrote on Twitter.

An official says in a statement on Saturday that President Donald Trump made clear previous year that the use of chemical weapons was a red line not to be crossed.

At the meeting, the fifth in a week on chemical weapons in Syria, Russia and its supporters again clashed with the United States and its allies over a suspected poison gas attack on April 7 in the Damascus suburb of Douma.

"When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line", Haley stressed.

She said that unlike the airstrikes carried out in April 2017 against Assad, when the United States targeted Syria's Shayrat Airbase in Homs in retaliation for a chemical attack on Khan Shaykhun, a town in the northwestern province of Idlib, the latest airstrikes were aimed at neutralizing chemical weapons research and development facilities. He expressed concern about the potential for escalating the conflict by drawing Russian Federation and Iran into a deeper confrontation with the United States in a country where all three have forces on the ground. "Let's pray that the responsible politicians and military leaders choose another path: that of negotiations, the only one that can bring peace".

Russian Federation and Syria have said there was no evidence of a chemical weapons attack.

The Pentagon also called Syria's "air defense" ineffective.

The allied attack set off a fierce worldwide debate about whether it was justified.

Inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) arrived in the Syrian capital, Damascus, on April 14 and were expected to begin their investigation at the site of the alleged chemical attack on April 15.

Putin condemned the military strikes as aggression that will make the humanitarian crisis in Syria worse, and reaffirmed Russia's view that a purported chemical attack in Douma was a fake. "Public estimates are as high as 200", she said. "We know that it is now up to Bashar al-Assad on whether he's going to use chemical weapons again".

He confirmed the information on three main targets, noting that they were successfully hit. Syrian time, about 9 p.m.

One site hit by the barrage of missiles was the Bazrah Research Center, a scientific research center on the outskirts of Damascus. On this target, 76 missiles - 57 U.S. Tomahawk Land Attack Missiles (TLAMs) and 19 joint air-to-surface missiles - were used in the strikes.

"Initial assessments are that this target was destroyed", he said. "The United States of America will not allow the Assad regime to continue to use chemical weapons".

- Strikes were launched by British, French and USA forces at 2am Irish Time at three sites connected with the Syrian regime's chemical weapons programme.

Andrew Tabler is the Martin J. Gross Fellow in the Program on Arab Politics at The Washington Institute, where he focuses on Syria and U.S. Middle East Policy.

"We will not stand by passively while Assad, backed by Russian Federation and Iran, ignores worldwide law", White said.

"So there is no practicable alternative to the use of force to degrade and deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime", May said. "This was not about interfering in a civil war and it was not about regime change". The Syrian government has denied the accusations.

"Air strikes have not resolved the situation in Syria so far - nothing I've heard persuades me they will do so now".
