US', Allies' Missile Strikes Have 'Enforced Red Line' in Syria

Anna Jefferson | 15 April, 2018, 00:53

Syrian television reported that Syria's air defenses, which are substantial, responded to the attack.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry has also lashed out at the Western states that had conducted a joint massive missile strike on targets in Syria and warned of "regional consequences".

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has strongly denounced joint airstrikes by the U.S., United Kingdom and France on Syria as a "crime", saying the leaders of the three countries are "criminals".

The European Union on Saturday warned of fresh economic sanctions, should Syria continue to use chemical weapons. "It is not about regime change", May said in statement made from her country residence at Chequers just minutes after U.S. President Donald Trump announced the strikes from the White House.

"Let the whole world know that Trump's Hollywood-style tweets and threats have not, and will not, scare Syria, Iran, Russia, or the region's resistance movements and peoples", he said.

A second United States official said targets were being carefully selected with the aim of damaging Assad's ability to conduct further gas attacks, while avoiding the risk of spreading poisonous fallout in civilian areas.

Earlier, another Israeli official said the punitive US-led strikes on Syria are justified because of the "murderous actions" of the Damascus government.

Trump says Syria strike was 'perfectly executed'
A global chemical warfare watchdog group says its fact-finding mission to Syria will go ahead even after the USA -led airstrikes. Russian Federation should take airstrikes on Syria as a warning over its use of chemical weapons, Theresa May has said.

Iran and Russian Federation have both been close allies of Syria's Assad, with Moscow providing military support for the Syrian government amid a years-long civil war there.

According to the Russian military the strike was carried out by two Israeli F-15 jets with guided missiles fired from Lebanon's airspace.

A picture released by the French Defence audiovisual communication and production unit (ECPAD) shows the launching of a cruise missile from a French military vessel in the Mediterranean sea towards targets in Syria overnight. A significant number of which were shot down by the Syrian forces.

"So we've got to take the fight to the Russians and the Iranians, they still haven't paid no real price for this support".

A statement carried by state news agency SANA said the strikes aimed to block a probe by the OPCW global chemical watchdog into an alleged gas attack outside Damascus.

Bucci believes the retaliation has the potential to force Assad to forgo the use of chemical weapons.

"President Trump must also hold Putin accountable for his enabling of the Assad regime's atrocities against the Syrian people", Pelosi said.
