US, UK and France launch military strikes on Syria

US, UK and France launch military strikes on Syria

Shortly after Trump's statement, British Prime Minister Theresa May released a statement saying she had "authorized British armed forces to conduct coordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian Regime's chemical weapons capability and deter their use".

Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, the Director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon, says the US -led airstrikes against Syria has been "a very serious blow".

"One again, just like a year ago when the United States attacked Shayrat Airbase in Syria, a staged chemical attack against civilians was used as a pretext, this time in Douma, a Damascus suburb".

Trump's tweet Saturday morning recalled former President George W. Bush's infamous declaration, standing aboard an aircraft carrier in 2003, that the US had accomplished its mission in Iraq. He also thanked allies France and Britain "for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military". Could not have had a better result.

May said intelligence and open source accounts indicated that the regime was behind the attack in Douma last Saturday.

Human rights activists in Syria and Western leaders accused the Assad regime of dropping barrel bombs full of chemicals on the town of Douma last weekend.

"America does not seek an indefinite presence in Syria", he said, thanking the United Kingdom and France for joining the USA in its fight against the Syrian regime.

"The attack took place after the colonial forces supporting terrorists realized they have lost control got the feeling that they have lost credibility in front of their people and the world", Assad said.

The gas attack, as claimed by him killed at least 40 people.

Officials said all weapons hit their marks, which were three facilities that were a part of President Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons program.

A senior official in the regional alliance that has supported President Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian war has said the attack on Syria will be seen as limited if it is now over and there is no second round of strikes. The targets, according to the General, are a scientific research facility in Damascus, a chemical weapons storage facility west of Homs and a chemical weapons equipment storage and an important command post, also near Homs. On the other hand, I'm glad that the strike of the Americans, the British, and the French was quite proportional.

Syria said the US, French, and British strikes were an attempt to "hinder the mission's work".

May has repeatedly said that the missile strike on Syria was not about "regime change".

"We will continue to work with our global partners to further investigate the use of chemical weapons in Syria".

The senior administration official said, "What you've seen tonight is not the end of the U.S. response". He said Russian Federation is calling for an immediate U.N. Security Council meeting to discuss the "aggressive actions" of the USA and its allies. "Hopefully, someday we'll get along with Russian Federation, and maybe even Iran - but maybe not", he said.
