Trump Will Strike Syria Again if Necessary


If confirmed to be a chemical attack, this would be among the worst such incidents in Syria's civil war, which has killed more than 320,000 people since it began in March 2011.

The United States launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian government airbase Thursday night, days after a chemical weapons attack by government forces in Idlib province killed dozens of civilians. USA warships in the Mediterranean Sea launched dozens of Tomahawk missiles at the airfield. Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj.

A joint command centre made up of the forces of Russia, Iran and militias supporting Syrian President Bashar al Assad said the USA strike on a Syrian air base on Friday crossed "red lines" and it would respond to any new aggression and increase its support for its ally.

The Pentagon has urged Russian Federation to recommit to the line, and U.S. officials say they will continue to try to use it. The official, who was not authorized to discuss initial reports, spoke on condition of anonymity.

After last Tuesday's chemical attack in Syria, Trump said his attitude toward Assad "has changed very much" and Tillerson said "steps are underway" to organize a coalition to remove him from power.

Col. Hassan Hamade, a Syrian pilot who defected in June 2012 when he landed his MiG-21 in Jordan, agreed.

"We are carefully assessing any information that would implicate the Russians knew or assisted with this capability", he said.

"That deal must lead to a representative government in which Assad will play no part".

Republican Senator John Cornyn told reporters that the administration has not defined its main target in Syria - whether it is Assad's government or the Islamic State in of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group. It said the woman killed had fled to the town from her hometown of Latameh in central Syria.

Russia's military said the strike had an "extremely low" military impact, with fewer than half the missiles reaching the base.

Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian prime minister, said the attacks had brought the countries to "the verge of a military clash".

Opposition activists in the area reported extensive damage.

Tillerson said the strike took out about 20 percent of the seventh wing of the Syrian air force and hit a fueling facility.

The Observatory, which relies on a network of sources inside Syria for its information, says it determines whose planes carry out raids according to type, location, flight patterns and munitions used. Still, he said the strike on the base, Syria's second-largest, with a fleet of Sukhoi-22, Sukhoi-24 and MiG-23 warplanes, is more a moral blow than a military one. USA warplanes frequently attack Islamic State militants in Syria and come close to Russian forces.

Russian Federation is responsible for the latest deaths in Syria and it must act to help the United Nations to dismantle Bashar al-Assad's chemical arsenal, British Defense Secretary Michael Fallon has said.

Tillerson said defeating the Islamic State group remains the top focus. And after the Donald Trump administration launched an airstrike on Bashar al-Assad's airfields, one New Hampshire couple says for the first time in six years, they don't feel alone anymore.
