Ghastly images of dying babies prompted Donald Trump to order missile attack


Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday that "terrorists" were applauding his United States counterpart Donald Trump for launching a missile strike on an airbase of his Syrian government ally.

In 2013, Mr Trump said on Twitter: "Stay out of Syria".

The Syrian government has denied being behind the attack and the Russian government warned against apportioning blame until an investigation had been carried out.

Tehran is Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's main regional ally and has provided military and economic support for his fight against rebel groups and Islamic State militants.

A scheduled visit by British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson to Russian Federation was canceled, part of the fast-moving fallout from the Syrian attack and the American response.

The President took to Twitter to say: "Congratulations to our great military men and women for representing the United States, and the world, so well in the Syria attack". The airbase is a small installation with two runways, and the strike came in response for a chemical weapons attack Tuesday in Syria.

USA officials said the strike was meant to make it harder for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to carry out future chemical attacks against his own citizens.

She said the USA should focus on ending the war politically rather than through military aggression.

Syrian-born Coquitlam resident Tima Kurdi said she "absolutely" disagrees with the U.S.'s decision on an air strike.

Asked then whether he was formulating a new policy on Syria, Mr Trump replied: "You'll see".

While the missile strike Thursday marked the first time the USA directly attacked the Assad regime, it is not the first US airstrike in the country.

Many people welcomed the intervention from the United States, including Syrians, on social media, some of whom changed their profile pictures to an image of Mr Trump to show their support.

But he backed calls for an independent inquiry into the suspected chemical weapons attack.

The U.S. military launched 59 cruise missiles at a Syrian military airfield early Friday in the first direct American assault on Assad's government since that country's six-year civil war began.

"The U.S. missile strike fully steps outside the framework of global law and will lead only to a further escalation in Syria", Russian State Duma worldwide Affairs Committee Chairman Leonid Slutsky said. The statement of the Turkish Foreign Ministry on April 7 contained an important detail, making a call to stand against all kinds of attacks on civilians, whether chemical or conventional.

The Pentagon said the base was used to store chemical weapons and that "every precaution" had been taken to avoid casualties.

"This step by Washington is causing significant damage to Russian-U.S. relations, which are already in a deplorable state", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was cited as saying by Russian news agency Interfax.
