France orders military action in Syria with US, Britain

A third target, also near Homs, contained both a chemical weapons equipment storage facility and a command post.

USA officials told reporters that the strike involved Tomahawk cruise missiles.The British Defense Ministry said that four RAF tornado jets also took part in the strike.

Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the US and its partners launched the attack at 9 p.m. ET and struck multiple targets associated with Syria's chemical weapons program.

"These are not the actions of a man; they are crimes of a monster instead", Trump said.

Kosachev reiterated the view of other lawmakers that the attack's intent was to interfere with global investigators who want to probe whether a chemical weapons attack took place in the town of Douma last week.

The targets included a Syrian center in the greater Damascus area for the research, development, production, and testing of chemical and biological weapons as well as a chemical weapons storage facility near the city of Homs. "President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad".

USS Ross (DDG 71) fires a tomahawk land-attack missile on April 7, 2017. The commission, which is investigating the attack on Douma, is an independent body established by the UN Human Rights Council to investigate human rights violations in Syria.

"Nothing is certain in these kinds of matters. This year, we and our allies have struck harder", he said. "It was done on targets that we believed were selected to hurt the chemical weapons program". Britain's defense ministry said initial indications were that the precision weapons and meticulous target planning had "resulted in a successful attack".

And Syria has also said that the attack on their country is "a brutal, barbaric aggression".

Russian Federation has called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council as Moscow said it would consider supplying S-300 missile systems to Syria following US-led strikes. "All responsibility for them rests with Washington, London and Paris".

Military and defense officials told CNN that at least one US Navy warship operating in the Red Sea participated in Friday's strikes, as well as US B-1 bombers.

The US military bombed Syria on Friday evening in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack last week that killed a number of innocent civilians, including children.

For the second time in just over a year, the world's most powerful military has attacked Syria, but this time the stakes are much higher.




He added that Paris would work with all countries and that there were no changes to Macron's planned trip to Russian Federation next month.

Russian Federation has reacted with displeasure.

Syria said Saturday that US -led a missile strikes on military targets and research facilities have failed to achieve their goal, condemning them as a flagrant breach of worldwide law. Russian Federation is calling for an immediate United Nations Security Council meeting to discuss the "aggressive actions" of the United States and its allies, Russia's President Vladimir Putin said in a statement.

Shortly after Trump's statement, UK Prime Minister Theresa May released a statement saying she had "authorized British armed forces to conduct coordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian Regime's chemical weapons capability and deter their use".

She said: "The use of nerve agent on Britain's streets is part of a pattern of disregard".

Looking drawn as she spoke to reporters in Downing Street in a hastily arranged press conference, she said: "We can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised - either within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom or elsewhere".

"We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents", the USA president said in a televised address.

On Saturday, Putin reaffirmed Russia's view that a purported chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma that prompted the strike was a fake.

Russian Federation - a key ally of the Assad government - is calling for an immediate UN Security Council meeting to discuss the "aggressive actions" of the United States and its allies, he said. The airstrikes were "not about intervening in a civil war (or) regime change", May said.

"By launching strikes without prior approval from parliament, May dispensed with a non-binding constitutional convention dating back to the 2003 invasion of Iraq". "I have done so because I judge this action to be in Britain's national interest".

The leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, said "Britain should be playing a leadership role to bring about a ceasefire in the conflict".
