Trump tweets 'Mission Accomplished' after Syria airstrike

Trump tweets 'Mission Accomplished' after Syria airstrike

U.S. officials said they gave Russian Federation no specific warnings of the attacks or the targets, but used the usual hotline with Moscow's military to ensure the airspace was clear.

Mayhoub said the attacks "will not deter" the Syrian military from its ongoing war to eradicate "armed terrorists" from Syrian territory.

He added: "Could not have had a better result".

China said it was "opposed to the use of force" and called for a political solution and a a "return to the framework of worldwide law".

Nasr al-Hariri, a senior opposition leader, said the global community must take responsibility for any retaliation by the Syrian government against civilians in opposition areas.

But she was accused of "riding the coat-tails of an erratic U.S. president" by the Liberal Democrats, and "taking instructions" from Washington by Labour.

"Syrian means of air defense: S-125, S-200 air defense systems, Buk and Kvadrat were used in the repelling the missile strike". Syrian internal security forces entered Douma on Saturday and were poised to declare their control over it within "hours".

Its foreign ministry said: "We welcome this operation which has eased humanity's conscience in the face of the attack in Douma".

May seemed determined to resist calls for a retrospective vote on her actions, saying only that Parliament "will get an opportunity to question me" after she has made a statement on the attacks on Monday.

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.

U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May said the government was right to order airstrikes against Syrian chemical weapons facilities, as opposition lawmakers complained about the lack of a parliamentary vote and accused her of being led by Donald Trump.

"Russia in the most serious way condemns the attack on Syria where Russian military servicemen help the legitimate government to fight terrorism", Putin said.

"Last year (US) President Donald Trump said that the use of chemical weapons would violate a red line".

"There have been many instances when we have seen them using those chemical weapons". We hit the sites, the heart of the chemical weapons program.

"The United States and its allies have no proof and, without even waiting for the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to take a position, have carried out this military attack", said the foreign ministry in a statement.

He said: "Bombs won't save lives or bring about peace".

- Jeremy Corbyn criticised the Prime Minister, describing the action as legally questionable.

Polls in recent days have shown public wariness of military intervention in Syria, with Britain still haunted by its participation in the US-led invasion of Iraq.

Mrs May has faced criticism from across the political spectrum for failing to recall Parliament and put the plans to a vote. The use of which, she says, "is inexcusable" and "illegal".

The PM did not rule out further action if Syria continues to use chemical weapons. Just a week earlier, Trump had shocked his own security chiefs by abruptly announcing his intention to rapidly remove United States troops from Syria, where they have been fighting IS militants.

Western strikes early on Saturday hit Syrian military bases and chemical research centres in and around the capital, a monitor said, as the United States (US) announced a joint operation against the Damascus government.

The targets, according to the General, are a scientific research facility in Damascus, a chemical weapons storage facility west of Homs and a chemical weapons equipment storage and an important command post, also near Homs.

Britain's defense ministry said in a statement that four British Tornado jets had fired Storm Shadow missiles at the base 15 miles (24 kilometers) west of Homs at 0100 GMT (4:00 IDT).
