Trump says Syria strike was 'perfectly executed'

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May | AP

The missile strikes took place as a team of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is in Damascus to probe the alleged chemical incident in Douma last week.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May said she had authorized British armed forces "to conduct coordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capability". "Russian Federation must decide if it will continue down this dark path or if it will join with civilized nations... hopefully some day we will get along with Russian Federation and maybe even Iran, but maybe not". "This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very bad regime", he added.

Trump also took a swipe at Russian Federation and Iran, condemning their continued support to Assad's regime. She described it as a "limited and targeted strike" aimed at minimizing civilian casualties.

May has repeatedly said that the missile strike on Syria was not about "regime change". "I urge the Security Council to assume its responsibilities and fill this gap". "It's to establish a strong deterrent against the production spread and use of chemical weapons". The targets, according to the General, are a scientific research facility in Damascus, a chemical weapons storage facility west of Homs and a chemical weapons equipment storage and an important command post, also near Homs.

He notes that Russian Federation in the past refrained from providing Syria with its state-of-the-art S-300 air defense missile systems on Western prodding but could reconsider it now. A US official told Reuters that Tomahawk cruise missiles also were involved.

The Syrian government has denied it used any chemical weapons in an attack, while Russia's Foreign Ministry claims there is no evidence of a chemical attack in Douma.

Assad made the remarks during a phone call with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who called Assad after the U.S-led attack on Syria, the state news agency SANA reported.

On Friday, U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said analysis done by the U.S., United Kingdom and France proved the chemical attack.

- The only retaliatory action was some Syrian surface-to-air missile activity, the U.S. said.




"The worst apprehensions have come true".

"Our warnings have been left unheard", Russia's ambassador to the US, Anatoly Antonov, said in a tweet on Saturday morning.

Iran is the key backer alongside Russian Federation of the Syrian president, providing military advisors and "volunteer" ground forces. "The U.S. - the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons - has no moral right to blame other countries".

"Russia's Foreign Ministry described the strikes as an "outrageous violation" of global law".

Iran, which has also backed Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad since the conflict began in 2011, also warned of "regional consequences".

The US launched airstrikes on Syria over Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons in Damascus. He continued by saying that the USA and its allies have demonstrated a blatant disregard for worldwide law. "Those responsible must be brought to justice", he said.

"That is why, with our allies, we ensured that the Russians were notified ahead of time".

The operation was "precise, overwhelming and effective", he said, adding it will set their chemical weapons program back "for years".
