Donald Trump says Syrian attack 'perfectly executed', 'Mission Accomplished'

"Iran is opposed to the use of chemical weapons on the basis of religious, legal and ethical standards, while at the same time it. strongly condemns (using this) as an excuse to commit aggression against a sovereign state", the statement said.

Syrian air defense forces targeted an Israeli F-16 fighter jet that was involved in the attack with over 25 anti-aircraft missiles.

Syria's capital has been rocked by loud explosions that lit up the sky with heavy smoke as U.S. President Donald Trump announced airstrikes in retaliation for the country's alleged use of chemical weapons.

The Jewish state has not commented on the attack, but the United States said that Israel had warned it about the attack beforehand.

"These are not the actions of a man; they are crimes of a monster instead", Trump said during a televised address late Friday from the White House, blasting Assad.

On a cost-benefit analysis the Kremlin has more to lose from any escalation - or a prolonging of the 7-year-old, multisided Syria conflict now that their longtime ally Assad, thanks to Russian and Iranian military assistance, has swung the battlefield decidedly in his favor and has all but won the civil war.

The U.K. ministry says in a statement that while the effectiveness of the strike is still being analyzed, "initial indications are that the precision of the Storm Shadow weapons and meticulous target planning have resulted in a successful attack".

Hezbollah's leader, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, said the attack on the air base in Syria ushers in a new phase that puts Israel in a state of "direct confrontation" with the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned on Saturday that a USA -led missile attack on Syria would lead to destruction in the Middle East, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported. But it remains unclear if they were struck by French and British manned aircraft and cruise missiles rather than by the US military. Five out the eight missiles used were said to have been destroyed by Syrian air defenses. We thank them both. Officials also said the strike was larger than a similar attack on the Assad regime launched previous year.

"The American attack is an important signal to the axis of evil - Iran, Syria and Hezbollah", Gallant said.

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 U.S. financial system was restricted under the sanctions laws".

Trump said that the goal of the response "is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread, and use of chemical weapons", Trump said.

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

"At the end of the day, the Assad regime doesn't survive if the Russians and Iranians don't back him. Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible", he added.
