Ordered Missile Strike Hits Damascus

Ordered Missile Strike Hits Damascus

"The combined American, British and French response will integrate all instruments of our national power".

"Maybe the regime will not use chemical weapons again, but it will not hesitate to use weapons the worldwide community has allowed it, such as barrel bombs and cluster bombs", Hariri, head of the main Syrian opposition bloc, said in a tweet.

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", Trump said.

The Pentagon said one of the targets was a scientific research center located in the greater Damascus area, which it described as a Syrian center for the research, development, production and testing of chemical and biological weaponry.

"We do not seek confrontation and we refuse any possibility of military escalation and that is the reason why, with our allies, we have insured that the Russians were warned beforehand", she said.

"Targets that were struck and destroyed were specifically associated with the Syrian regime's chemical weapons program", Dunford said.

"We are trying to stop the murder of innocent people".

The largest USA air and naval strike force since the 2003 Iraq war was said to be heading towards Syria, according to reports in The Times, paving the way for strikes within the next three days.

Some U.S. response to the atrocity, in which about 40 people died, is necessary. "Members of Congress will be receiving national security briefings on these strikes and their progress".

On the other hand, The Ghazi Attack is a film that I am proud of, because we faced resistance while making it. Sridevi has been named best actress at the 65th National Film Awards , almost two months after her death.

The announcement came on Thursday, just days after the suspected attack which, according to activists and medics on the ground, claimed the lives of more than 85 civilians and injured at least 1,200 people.

About 120 missiles targeted three main sites: a research centre near Damascus; a storage facility near Homs, thought to be the "primary location" of Syrian sarin gas; and a nearby storage facility that also served as a command post.

Describing the strike as a deterrent, Trump said the U.S. would maintain pressure on Syria until the Assad regime suspends use of chemical weapons.

We can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalized - within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom, or anywhere else in our world.

Russian Federation has been involved in the Syrian conflict since 2015 and became Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's main ally in the war against armed opposition groups.

- President Trump announced Friday night that he ordered a us military strike on Syria.

Although Trump reportedly advocated for a broad military strike that would punish Syria, and to an extent, its allies Russian Federation and Iran, he is believed to have been met with resistance from Mattis and other military officials, who feared the White House lacked a broad strategy, The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday. It resulted in the destruction of some 20 Syrian warplanes and killed seven Syrian troops, USA and Syrian officials said at the time. Mattis said the number of weapons used was about double those employed in a strike in April 2017.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley insisted chemical weapons were used in the suspected attack in Syria.

"It would provoke a retaliation operation by government forces and the White Helmets were to use it to stage a provocation with an alleged use of chemical weapons", he said.

"To Iran and to Russian Federation, I ask, what kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children?"

By supporting Assad, Russia's actions are "prejudicial to our security" and will let the Islamic State group "re-establish itself" - something that "we believe we need to take action to defend", said Pierce. "No nation can succeed in the long run by promoting rogue states, brutal tyrants, and murderous dictators", he said. Increased engagement from our friends, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Egypt, and others can ensure that Iran does not profit from the eradication of ISIS.

But since then he's suggested he'll wait for further advice from military advisers and U.S. allies.

Mr Mattis said the U.S. remained in "close consultation" with its allies, adding: "We review the evidence all the time".

So there is no practicable alternative to the use of force to degrade and deter the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian Regime.

In the six days between the attack and the US-led response, Washington and Moscow clashed repeatedly in duelling press statements and United States debates.

But Trump has long criticized his predecessor Barack Obama for failing to enforce a previous U.S. "red line" in 2013 after earlier chemical attacks blamed on Assad's forces.

Asked about concerns in planning a strike on Assad's regime, Mattis cited worry over inadvertently causing civilian casualties and avoiding anything that would trigger a wider war.
