Iran Reacts Harshly To Missile Strike On Syria

Iran Reacts Harshly To Missile Strike On Syria

- Strikes were launched by British, French and U.S. forces at 2am BST at three sites connected with the Syrian regime's chemical weapons programme.

That appeared to contradict Trump's own pledge that the United States, France and Britain would sustain the military campaign until Assad stops using prohibited chemical agents.

French President Emmanuel Macron said the action was narrowly focused on Syria's chemical weapons facilities while May insisted there was no intention to interfere in the broader civil war that has engulfed the country since 2011.

"A perfectly executed strike last night", President Donald Trump said Saturday in a tweet.

Two congressional representatives from Maryland reacted via Twitter to the missile attack launched by the USA and its allies against Syria on Friday evening.

The Syrian Government denies the chemical weapon attack accusation, saying the rebels and the West fabricated it as an excuse to attack the country.

Trump's tweet Saturday morning recalled former President George W. Bush's infamous declaration, standing aboard an aircraft carrier in 2003, that the USA had accomplished its mission in Iraq.

Mr Mattis said double the number of weapons were used in the strikes compared with similar attacks on Syria carried out a year ago. "So it was mission accomplished". "The use of chemical weapons is unacceptable, and those responsible must be held accountable".

Experts and lawmakers warned before the strikes that although the chance is small, bombing Syria could increase the odds of a war between Russian Federation and the US.

Strikes were aimed at "chemical weapons infrastructure" in what United States billed as a warning against Assad employing such weapons in future.

A day after the United States, United Kingdom and France ordered missile strikes against Syria, China said that it was "opposed to the use of force" and called for a dialogue to resolve the issue, AFP reported.

Britain argued that the strikes were "both right and legal" to alleviate humanitarian suffering from repeated use of toxic gas in attacks in Syria's seven-year war.

USA forces launched targeted missile strikes on Friday at key military outposts in Syria, where the government is thought to have stored chemical weapons used in a strike that killed over 40 civilians last weekend.

The UN Security Council met at Russia's request to discuss US-led air strikes on Syria in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack. - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Yet he made no mention of a possible Russian military response. She called for a renewed diplomatic effort to strengthen the global laws against the use of such weapons.

"Very soon, very soon, we're coming out", Trump said to a crowd in Richfield, Ohio, on March 30.

That should send an unmistakable message to Assad, as well as to the enabling nations of Russian Federation and Iran and regimes in North Korea, China and elsewhere that may be considering a test of Western resolve.

"Mission accomplished" is the same phrase former President George W. Bush infamously used in 2003, after the US -led invasion of Iraq.

The Iraqi foreign ministry said the US-led strikes were a risky development, which could "threaten the security and stability of the region" according to Reuters.
