US, Allies Launch Strikes On Syria; Donald Trump Warns Russia, Iran

US, Allies Launch Strikes On Syria; Donald Trump Warns Russia, Iran

She said she authorized British forces to join in the strikes after intelligence indicated Syrian president Bashar al-Assad's government was responsible for an attack using chemical weapons in the Damascus suburb of Douma a week ago.

It said the Syrian regime has been using chemical weapons since 2013, killing almost 1,000 civilians and injuring hundreds more which "constitutes a war crime and a crime against humanity".

French President Emmanuel Macron said the strikes had been limited so far to Syria's chemical weapons facilities.

"Let us not forget that, ultimately, our efforts must be about ending the bad suffering of the Syrian people", he urged the United States, Russia, China, France and Britain.

Israel says in response to the American-led strike in Syria that the Middle Eastern country's "murderous actions" put itself in danger.

The sky over Syria's capital, Damascus, lights up with surface-to-air missile fire as the USA launches an attack on Syria.

State news agency SANA, quoting an official in Syria's foreign ministry, said: "The barbaric aggression will not affect in any way the determination and insistence of the Syrian people and their heroic armed forces".

More practically, at the United Nations, Russia's diplomats vetoed a USA motion to re-establish an global investigation into chemical weapons use in Syria that could have established blame. "It is not about regime change", May said in a statement. Britain has accused Russia of being behind last month's nerve agent attack on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury, southern England, a charge Moscow has rejected.

We will continue to work with our worldwide partners to further investigate the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

She added that she would address parliament on Monday.

"Bombing can not substitute for diplomacy", he said.

"This legally questionable action risks escalating already devastating conflict", he said, adding that May should have sought parliamentary approval. "This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very bad regime".

"The prime minister has the full authority, on the basis of all the information at her disposal, to order the type of military action which has been carried out this morning and we reject any suggestion that she was not entitled to do so".

Due largely to divisions among its five permanent members - China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States - the Council could not adopt three draft resolutions that would have responded to a suspected chemical weapons attack in the Syrian town of Douma.

DUP MP Nigel Doods, reacting to the air strikes, said: "First and foremost we salute the courage of our fearless servicemen and women". The Syrian army stated that the strikes would not prevent Syria from fighting terrorists.

"Our service personnel have played an important role in terms of degrading the ability of the Syrian regime to use chemical weapons in the future", Williamson said.
