7 civilians killed as USA warplanes strike Syrian town again

"Why have you attacked the Syrian army which is at war with terrorists?"
But the repeated Russian denials that Assad was responsible continue the pattern of lies about their actions from the invasion of Ukraine to the hack of the US election.
Thursday night's strikes - some 60 cruise missiles fired from two ships in the Mediterranean - were the culmination of a rapid, three-day transformation for Trump, who has long opposed deeper USA involvement in Syria's civil war.
They catapulted Washington into confrontation with Russian Federation, which has advisers on the ground aiding its close ally Assad.
"Now, we can say that when the United States takes an official position on an issue.in this conflict, its rivals will have to factor that into their plans", Itani said.
The War Powers Resolution, passed in 1973 long after American troops were fighting an undeclared war in Vietnam, required the president to consult with Congress before sending United States armed forces into combat and said the troops could not stay more than 90 days unless lawmakers backed the decision.
They also said the War Powers Resolution requirement to consult Congress before taking military action was adhered to, with a dozen members of Congress having been informed before the strikes. And by 7 a.m., they detected possible evidence of the nerve agent. Video aired later Friday on Syrian state television showed several large hangars at the base, with their entrances singed by fire.
Syrian activists and state media said the overnight airstrike by the US -led coalition on a northern village held by the Islamic State group killed at least 13 civilians, including children.
"I hope this will be only the beginning to make the US administration have a better understanding of the reality of the Syrian crisis and the Syrian cause", Sawah said.
"The war on terrorism is sustained, and the protection of the people is our priority", he said.

False hopes? U.S. attack on Syrian airbase raises expectations
Assad, chastened, might learn his lesson, and pursue his military agenda using more conventional (though still devastating) means. And Tillerson spoke of a long-term goal that would come after the defeat of ISIS and within the context of a political process.
President Trump did the right thing, the necessary thing, in striking Syria's Shayrat Air Base in response to the Assad regime's gruesome gas attack on civilians.
After dinner Thursday, the president informed Xi that US missiles had just made impact in Syria.
Trump had also repeatedly touted his opposition to the US-led wars in the region and vowed never to take a military action against the Syrian government.
Paul has repeatedly raised objections to the Syria strike on constitutional grounds, but he also questions the inherent merits military intervention against the Bashar al-Assad regime.
USA lawmakers, even those who supported the US strikes, were unsure what the Trump administration might do next to follow up its policy. Russian Federation also is in a position to help the United States combat global terrorism.
Iran, which has provided crucial military and political support to Assad, meanwhile called for a fact-finding mission to determine what caused the chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun. That claim is now likely to be subjected to a fresh round of scrutiny.
The Syrian government responded to Thursday night's US strike on its Shaayrat air base by quickly fixing the base and allowing the two planes to take off from there, the human rights organization said.
At the very least, though, Assad may now face increased pressure to return to a peace process that has repeatedly broken down. There are other escalatory measures Trump might consider, including establishing no-fly zones and safe havens within Syria, or providing more substantial support to Syrian rebel groups.
That statement puts Canada alongside many American allies, including its traditional Sunni Muslim ones in the Middle East, such as Jordan and Saudi Arabia, which had been disappointed by Obama's decision not to strike Syria four years ago. "Russia is committed to that process now, so they have to make it work".
