Trump declares 'mission accomplished' after US-led airstrikes in Syria

If Syria uses toxic gas again U.S. 'locked and loaded': U.N. envoy Haley

They were very effective.

Russian Federation did not fire surface-to-air missiles in response to the attacks, despite a previous threat to do so, the United States said. "So it was a mission accomplished".

McKenzie said the targets were all totally destroyed, and the strikes had "significantly crippled Assad's ability to produce" chemical weapons.

"Mattis spoke Friday night after President Donald Trump announced that the U.S., France and Britain launched military strikes on Syria to punish President Bashar Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons against civilians and to deter him from doing it again".

"The United States is locked and loaded", she said.

"Macron says in a statement Saturday that France's "red line has been crossed" after a suspected chemical attack last week in the Syrian town of Douma". "We call upon Russian Federation to honor its commitment to ensure the Assad regime dismantles its chemical weapons program and never uses chemical weapons again". One of those tweets read. Assad has vehemently denied launching the chemical attack. The document points to a large number of "reliable" photos and videos of victims suffering from the symptoms of a chemical attack.

He said that the strikes were a response to the Syrian regime's actions and were not a provocation against the Russian Federation or its forces in Syria.

Defense officials said the US -led strikes did encounter some initial resistance from Syrian air defense systems, but that it appears Russian defense systems did not engage.

Calling the attacks "narrowly targeted", Sam Heller, senior fellow at the International Crisis Group, pointed out that no "major break" has occurred in the immediate aftermath of the bombings.

Haley's message came after her Russian counterpart, Vassily Nebenzia, said he would ask the Security Council to condemn the pre-dawn military strikes on Syria by the United States, France and Britain - calling the attacks a violation of global law and the U.N. Charter.

Russian leader Vladimir Putin reaffirmed the Kremlin's scepticism about the allies' Douma claim, saying Russian military experts had found no trace of the attack. "Public estimates are as high as 200", she said.

U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis on Friday night said the assault was a "one-time shot", so long as Assad does not repeat his use of chemical weapons. None of the more sophisticated air defenses that Moscow has positioned in Syria were employed, he said.

A photo released on April 14, 2018 the twitter page of the Syrian governments central military media on April 14, 2018 shows an explosion on the outskirts of Damascus. We hit the sites, the heart of the chemical weapons programme.

The futility of that exercise was fully exposed when dozens more died from symptoms similar to that caused by sarin, after an air raid on Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib province a year ago. "This is going to set the Syrian chemical weapon program back for years".

The United States said its strikes were a response to President Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons attack on April 7 that administration officials say employed chlorine and perhaps even sarin, a more deadly nerve agent.

Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia quoted President Vladimir Putin and said that in conducting the strikes, the US, United Kingdom and France had acted "without a mandate from the UN Security Council and in violation of the UN charter and the norms of global law".

According to Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal, Islamabad "condemns the use of chemical weapons anywhere by anyone". He said the USA knew of no civilians killed by allied missiles.

The US-led operation won broad Western support.

It was, instead, about the use of chemical weapons, May said.

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

In his remarks, Trump said he holds Russian Federation directly responsible for the attack on Douma, saying Moscow failed to live up to its 2013 promise to guarantee Syria eliminated its arsenal of chemical weapons.
