US, Allies launch retaliatory strikes against Syria

"Last year, [US] President [Donald] Trump made it clear that using chemical weapons crossed a red line".

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, both Assad allies, have condemned the strikes.

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

US President Donald Trump announced early on Saturday the military action from the White House late on Friday.

Iran has been Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's most supportive ally against insurgents throughout the conflict.

"We waited for it to cross into our territory", he said, stressing that it was important for Israel "to get our hands on the drone".

Among the sites struck in a coordinated operation by U.S., French and British forces shortly before dawn prayers was a scientific research center on the outskirts of the Syrian capital, a chemical weapons storage facility near Homs and a nearby command post, the Pentagon said.

He said: "the United States and our allies have the will and capability to continue imposing those costs, and that Iran and Russian Federation will ultimately be unsuccessful in protecting Assad from our punitive response".

White House Veers From Missiles Coming to Diplomacy on Syria
White House said Russian Federation has proven to be a bad actor but the U.S. hopes that will change. More broadly, he doubted the wisdom of bombing.

The same report claimed that Moscow recently supplied Syria with advanced Pantsir-S1 air defense systems to bolster President Bashar Assad's defense capabilities.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis says military strikes in Syria are "directed at the Syrian regime" and they have "gone to great lengths to avoid civilians and foreign casualties". For them, Syria is less important than US President Donald Trump's decision on the Iranian nuclear deal, due in less than a month, on May 12.

Johnson said: "The world is united in its disgust for any use of chemical weapons, but especially against civilians".

Israel has not confirmed or denied carrying out the strike on the Syrian base, but Israel's military said the drone it downed in February was sighted taking off from that base.

Asked who were the "chief financial beneficiaries" of the sanctions evasion scheme, prosecutors said, "First and foremost, the scheme benefited the Iranian government entities whose access to oil revenue and to the United States financial system was restricted under the sanctions laws".

The army statement was released soon after the leader of Lebanon's militant Hezbollah group said the airstrike that killed seven Iranians was a "historic mistake".

Earlier Friday, Nasrallah's deputy said a broader war was unlikely in the region despite Trump's threats to launch retaliatory strikes.

Trump's United Nations ambassador, Nikki Haley, said the president had not yet made a final decision, two days after he tweeted that Russian Federation should "get ready" because a missile attack "will be coming" at Moscow's chief Middle East ally.
