Before and after aerials of the Syria strike

US, UK and France Launch Strikes Against Syria

"Russia condemns in the strongest possible terms the attack against Syria where Russian military personnel are assisting the legitimate country and their counterterrorism efforts", Nebenzia said, reading a statement from Russian President Vladimir Putin. Putin added that the strike had a "destructive influence on the entire system of worldwide relations". The coordinated missile attack by allied forces hit suspected weapons sites in an operation Trump said was meant to deter Assad from using chemical arms in future. Adulsalam Abdulrazek said Saturday that the joint strikes were unlikely to curb the government's ability to produce or launch new attacks.

Al Siofi said the world is still missing the more important issue: That civilians are dying at an alarming rate in Syria because of non-chemical weapons.

"President Bashar al-Assad would never use chemical weapons on his own people".

"The evil and the despicable attack left mothers and fathers, infants and children, thrashing in pain and gasping for air. These are not the actions of a man; they are crimes of a monster instead", Trump said.

The town of Douma, the site of a suspected chemical attack last weekend, was among a dwindling number of rebel-held areas as Assad expands his control. Representatives from the Russian Reconciliation Center for the Opposing Sides examined Douma on April 9, but found no trace of the use of chemical weapons there.

He again criticized the US and its allies for launching the strike without waiting for global inspectors to complete their visit to the area.

Trump's tweet Saturday appeared to be referring to the success of the strike, but whether or not the Assad regime will be deterred from using chemical weapons remains to be seen. For now, it doesn't appear that Russian Federation is heeding the call by U.S. State Department Press Secretary Heather Nauert who said that Russian Federation "needs to take responsibility". Those words later took on an irony as the war dragged on, and at the end of his presidency, Bush called the use of the phrase "a mistake". "This is hard to do in a situation like this", he said, in light of the volatility of chemical agents.

Those places were targeted because the USA believes they are responsible for helping create the Syrian regime's chemical weapons program.

But Dr Basirini said he did not expect it to make a real difference.

McKenzie described one site, the Barzah Research and Development Center, near Damascus, as a "core" facility for Syria's chemical-weapons program.

In addition, a storage facility was the target of 22 weapons launched by all coalition forces, and a bunker facility was the target of seven Scout missiles.

The hospital employee also said he did not believe the strikes had anything do with chemical weapons use.

Whether or not that happens is up to Syria and also Russian Federation, the officials said.

Turkey's president, meanwhile, said the airstrikes on Syrian targets were "correct" and showed the Syrian regime that such actions would not go "unanswered". "This is not about intervening in a civil war".

Trump spoke by phone with British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron. Damascus is still permitted to have chlorine for civilian use, although its use as a weapon is banned.

U.S. Defence Secretary Jim Mattis called the strikes a "one-time shot". The strike was double the size of last year's assault.

The message in both cases has also been the same: that the strikes have damaged the Assad regime's capabilities, and that they don't indicate that the USA mission in Syria has changed. The air campaign could frustrate those in Trump's base who oppose military intervention and are wary of open-ended conflicts.

Russia, Iran and Assad's regime all denounced the strikes as criminal, which is rich coming from an alliance that has regularly targeted hospitals and schools while engaging in mass torture and rape.

The vote came at the end of an emergency meeting called by Moscow.

The Ambassador said a "pre-designed scenario" was being implemented in response to the strikes which the U.S. was a "one-time shot" targeting Syria's chemical weapons program.

Trump had said Friday that the USA is "prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents".

"The Security Council has failed in its duty to hold those who use chemical weapons to account", Haley said at a meeting of the U.N. Security Council that was called by Russian Federation over Friday night's strikes.

The following year, he wrote: "Remember the terrorists that Obama has been arming in Syria against Assad".

U.S. President Donald Trump announced the military action from the White House late on Friday. We hit the sites, the heart of the [chemical] weapons program. In his nationwide address, Trump stressed that he has no interest in a longtime fight with Syria.

"A perfectly executed strike last night", Mr. Trump said. "And great warriors they are".

In the early hours of Saturday, the three Western states launched a barrage of missile attacks against Syria in response to what they claim to be a chemical attack in Douma. But they haven't - so far at least.
