[BREAKING] US, Britain, France launch air strikes in Syria

[BREAKING] US, Britain, France launch air strikes in Syria

USA ambassador Nikki Haley said: "It is Russian Federation alone that has stopped at nothing to defend the Syrian regime's multiple uses of chemical weapons".

Meanwhile, Russia's Embassy to the United Kingdom tweeted a statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, that denied there was any evidence of a chemical attack.

The targeted al-Shirai air base is located in al-Dimas, the commander told Reuters.

"The Prime Minister said it was a further example of the erosion of global law in relation to the use of chemical weapons, which was deeply concerning to us all".

Syrian state media reported the joint operation hit a research centre northeast of the capital as well as other military installations around Damascus, but said missiles targeting army depots in Homs had been intercepted. Moscow's United Nations envoy Vasily Nebenzia said, "I would once again beseech you to refrain from the plans that you're now developing", He also warned the U.S. to bear the outcome of military action it is planning to conduct.

The spokesperson for the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova has responded to US President Donald Trump who threatened Russia with a soon missile attack in Syria.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has called an emergency cabinet meeting for Thursday, while French President Emmanuel Macron is to decide on a response in the coming days, having insisted he does "not want an escalation" and that any response would focus on Syria's chemical capabilities, not on allies of the regime.

Assad said the threats by Western countries against Syria were "on the basis of lies they have fabricated", denying any responsibility for the suspected chemical attack.

The tweet is the most obvious possible early warning to Russian Federation and Syria of USA military action, guaranteeing that they are as prepared as possible.

Now Mr Macron - who likes to be seen as a president who does what he says he will do - is facing the test of what "reprisal" actually means.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova hit Trump in a Facebook post: "Smart missiles should fly toward terrorists, not the legal government that has been fighting global terrorism for several years on its territory".

Syria's Foreign Ministry said Wednesday that Trump's threats to attack are "reckless" and endanger global peace and security.

"We have sought to use every possible diplomatic channel to achieve this".

Thursday's tweet was consistent with one the president composed on Wednesday. "Could be very soon or not so soon at all!" he tweeted. We have to make some further decisions. On Monday, he said, "We are meeting with our military and everybody else, and we'll be making some major decisions over the next 24 to 48 hours".

Later, he told reporters a decision will "be made fairly soon".

Tokyo issued a similar response in April past year when the United States conducted a missile strike on a Syrian air base that was the alleged source of a chemical attack that killed dozens of civilians.

"The victory of Syria will change the map of the region and the world", she said, adding that Israel is feverishly trying to prolong the Syrian war.
