New Western Syria strikes would spark 'chaos': Putin tells Rouhani

New Western Syria strikes would spark 'chaos': Putin tells Rouhani

"And what's most important is no one contests that the use of chemical weapons can not be tolerated and must be deterred", he said. The Western states have accused forces of President Bashar Assad of an attack with the use of chemicals in Duma.

Russian Federation and Iran called the use of force by the United States and its French and British allies a military crime and act of aggression.

Most members of the Security Council, with the notable exception of Bolivia, voiced support for the airstrikes. Secretary of Defense James Mattis said both manned and unmanned weapons were used.

Or perhaps there would need to be a series of violations, as was the case before April 7, prior to any United States action.

The inspectors were due to attempt to visit the site of the suspected gas attack in Douma on April 7, which medical relief organisations say killed dozens of people.

A year later, the joint OPCW-U.N. panel determined the Syrian government had twice used helicopters to deploy chlorine against its opponents in civilian areas in northern Idlib province.

Huge blasts were reported around Damascus early on Saturday, moments after the US, France, and Britain announced they were striking Syria's chemical weapons capabilities.

This comes days after the US, Britain, and France conducted "precision strikes" in Syria on Friday in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government.

"Last night, we obliterated the major research facility that it used to assemble weapons of mass murder", Haley told an emergency UN Security Council meeting on Syria here.

Trump has made clear he wants to withdraw the roughly 2,000 USA troops in Syria involved in the anti-Islamic State campaign, and his administration has suspended support for Syrian rebels, evidence of his desire to disengage from Syria.

Haley said the three USA goals for accomplishing its mission are making sure chemical weapons are not used in a way that could harm U.S. national interests, defeating the Islamic State group and having a good vantage point to watch what Iran is doing.

It is the biggest intervention by Western powers against Assad in Syria's seven-year civil war, and has pitted the U.S. and its allies against Moscow.

The narrowly targeted pre-dawn military operation, which took aim at three alleged chemical weapons facilities, earned quick scorn from Russian Federation, but a push by Moscow for condemnation of the strikes at the Security Council fell far short.

The two leaders "found that this illegal action seriously damaged the prospects of a political settlement in Syria", the statement said.

"We don't want to see our country just spending all this money on the military while we're getting cutbacks in healthcare, education and housing", said Sale. "Bombs won't save lives or bring about peace", Mr Corbyn said.

Syria released video of the wreckage of a bombed-out research lab, but also of Assad arriving at work as usual, with the caption "morning of resilience" and there were no immediate reports of casualties. She says: "President Assad has an absolutely positive attitude, a good mood".

It comes after the US, UK and French launched strikes on three sites linked to Syria's chemical weapons programme. "They attacked Syria because we defeated their terrorist agents", said one of the protesters.

Russian Federation put forward a draft resolution at an emergency United Nations Security Council meeting Saturday morning to condemn the US, French and British military action, but the resolution failed.

"To be clear, the United States is also ready to take additional action in a sustained way to ensure that Syria understands that there will be a price to pay if they ever use chemical weapons again", Pence said.

Sarin had previously appeared to be the threshold for intervention.

President Trump at the White House addresses the nation on launching missile strikes on Syria.
