Putin warns of global 'chaos' after US-led strike on Syria

Putin warns of global 'chaos' after US-led strike on Syria

Human rights groups have reported a number of other chemical attacks, but until Saturday Trump hadn't responded with military force again.

The strikes were in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack a week ago on the rebel-held town of Douma that left more than 40 people dead. "It changed the course of battle on the ground", Koblentz said.

But Russia has blocked countless resolutions against its Syrian ally and the regime has appeared determined to continue its military reconquest of the country. Even US officials confessed it was "highly likely" Assad still had a stockpile and the means to manufacture the chemicals. Such devastation could break the will of rebel fighters and turn civilians in the area against the rebels.

He criticized the USA and its allies for launching the strike without waiting for inspectors from the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog to visit the area. On 'America's Newsroom, ' State Department spokeswoman says the US has seen a series of Russian lies at the United Nations.

· Russian Federation reported that the Syrian air defense systems intercepted around 70 of the missiles that had been fired towards the targets in Syria but the U.S. chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford said he was aware of no initial losses. The Pentagon said it severely crippled the country's ability to produce the banned weapons.

She authorized the strikes without a vote in Parliament.

"We all know, Syria has maintained a secret chemical programme since 2013", French ambassador Philippe Lalliot said.

The Pentagon acknowledged that Syria's chemical weapons capability was not destroyed. Asked if this meant Assad could carry on using barrel bombs and other means at his disposal in the war provided that he did not use chemical weapons, Johnson said that was the "unhappy" effect.

The attack was limited to Syria's chemical weapons capabilities and not created to topple or weaken Assad's grip on power in the country.

Germany's chancellor says the allied strikes in Syria were - in her words - a "necessary and appropriate" response to what the US and its allies say was a recent chemical attack in the Syrian city of Douma.

France, the United States and Britain circulated a draft resolution to the U.N. Security Council late on Saturday that aims to establish a new independent inquiry into who is to responsible for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

President Donald Trump has defended the use of the term "mission accomplished" amid criticism following US, UK and French strikes on targets in Syria.

Chemical warfare may continue in Syria. "They'll try and stay below the red line", Koblentz said. "This is not an attempt to depose the Syrian regime".

The department says that the issue should be resolved by the United Nations Security Council and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

The two nations deny using chemical weapons in an attack on Douma in the suburbs of Damascus last Saturday, which triggered the US-led decision to carry out strikes on Friday night.

Syria released video of the wreckage of a bombed-out research laboratory, but also of Assad arriving at work as usual, with the caption "Morning of resilience" and there were no immediate reports of casualties. Yet he made no mention of a possible Russian military response.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said last week his country had sent experts to the site and found "no trace" of chemical weapons use.

Khaldoun Barakat, who lives in Al-Rastan also said that jets had flown past her home, towards the northern Homs countryside.
