Maryland representatives Cummings, Harris weigh in on United States missile attack in Syria

Behind closed doors US President Donald Trump pushed for a more aggressive response than the one taken last year wanting options that would involve attacks on targets in Syria associated with Russia and Iran officials said

The U.S. acted alone, focusing on a single target. Those aren't the only difference between the strikes.

The Secretary-General also said that global investigators are ready to visit the site of the suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria's Douma where several militias and armies are fighting proxy wars.

"Those 100 plus missiles that were fired against Syria today will have the same effect on our country as last year's 58 tomahawks had: nothing", said Idriss from her home in the Mezzeh neighbourhood of the capital.

"A perfectly executed strike last night". Gen. Ali Mayhoub said that the Scientific Research Center in Barzeh near Damascus was hit, while three people were injured in Homs when a missile was targeted. Specifically, the USA and allies hit Him Shinshar weapons sites, outside the city of Homs, and the Barzeh research center in Damascus.

The Syrian government is accused of launching a chemical attack in Douma last week.

"But I believe it should also be a message to others that the global community is not going to stand by and allow chemical weapons to be used with impunity". "But at the same time, it was a heavy strike".

"We are very confident that chlorine was used".

But that didn't seem to satisfy reporters in the Pentagon press corps, who continued to ask variations of how this strike would really make a difference in ways that last year's have not.

Nt'sekhe says the DA did seek an explanation as to why De Lille did not inform the party prior to the EFF memorial. I mean, I've been to the memorial service of Pam Golding the other day", she said.

The US Air Force fired air-launched cruise missiles from B-1 bombers, and French and British planes also shot cruise missiles toward the targets.

"We specifically identified these targets to mitigate the risk of Russian forces being involved", Dunford told reporters, adding the USA military advised Russia of airspace that would be used in the strike but did not "pre-notify them".

Israel Housing Minister Yoav Galant, a member of the coalition's Kulanu party, said on his Twitter page: "The American attack is an important signal to the axis of evil - Iran, Syria and Hezbollah - a signal that says the use of chemical weapons crosses the red line against humanity and will not be tolerated".

Support from elsewhere in Europe was more muted, with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni saying his country didn't provide its usual logistical support to western military operations in the eastern Mediterranean.

"We can not stand by as Russian Federation trashes every worldwide norm that we stand for", Ms Haley said.

"We call on Russian Federation to take a hard look at the company it keeps and live up to its responsibilities as a permanent member of the council and defend the actual principles the United Nations was meant to promote", she said.

Syria's state-run news agency SANA reported at least three civilians were wounded in the strikes.

Bashar Jaafari, Syria's ambassador to United Nations, said the strikes were an "attack against global law", and called on the three countries to stop supporting "terrorists" in Syria. And one question that remains - despite the differences - is the level of impact.

The White House and Pentagon are insisting the airstrikes the US carried out with its allies overnight differ from the strikes the USA conducted last April, after a different chemical weapons attack attributed to Syrian President Bashar Al Assad's regime.

According to Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal, Islamabad "condemns the use of chemical weapons anywhere by anyone".

· France said the strikes had destroyed a "large part" of Damascus' chemical weapons stock.

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".

The overnight operation was the culmination of a week of frenetic planning at the Pentagon, with officials weighing the risks of various targets as President Donald Trump sent out mixed messages on what he wanted to do.

Avoiding further erosion of these norms is in the national interest of the United States.

The U.S. has denied that assertion and called the group's mission "essential" to a complete understanding of what chemical agents were used.

"Our mission stays the same - it's to defeat ISIS. It is not to get involved in the Syrian civil war", Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White told reporters.

Russia likely to call UN meeting over Syria attack, says lawmaker
Syria's President Bashar Assad announced that his country would respond to the allied attack but offered no details. In a statement Friday night, UK Prime Minister Theresa May called last weekend's chemical attack "pure horror".
