Syria strikes: what we know

But Haley did not back down from the claims she made on Friday and repeated on Saturday-that the evidence was clear that Bashar al-Assad's regime was responsible for ongoing chemical weapons attacks, including the latest on April 7 that reportedly killed dozens of Syrian civilians. After the attack ceased and the early morning skies went dark once more, vehicles with loudspeakers roamed the streets of Damascus blaring nationalist songs. The document points to a large number of "reliable" photos and videos of victims suffering from the symptoms of a chemical attack.

Russian president Vladimir Putin has denounced the missile strikes by the US, France and the United Kingdom as an "act of aggression" that would exacerbate the humanitarian catastrophe in Syria.

After the announcement, the U.S. said strikes had been launched at 9pm EST (2am BST) and had destroyed important infrastructure at three sites connected with the Syrian regime's chemical weapons programme.

He said the three nations have "marshaled their righteous power".

Chlorine, in contrast, has been used more widely in Syria's conflict without past US reprisals, and the chemical itself is far easier to find and weaponize, experts say. The inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons will try to determine whether chemical weapons had been used in the Douma attack.

"The evil and the despicable attack left mothers and fathers, infants and children, thrashing in pain and gasping for air".

Assad is indeed a "monster", as Trump described him during his address to the nation on Friday night. He says a "combined operation" with France and the United Kingdom is underway. "We thank them both".

Defense Secretary James Mattis called the "atrocities inexcusable".

"And we also know that they have nothing but scorn for worldwide law, but we have this (hold up UN Charter)", Soliz said.

Haley emphasized that, "We are prepared to sustain this pressure", on Syria if they continue to use chemical weapons.

"Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible", Antonov said in his statement responding to the US-led military action. "They were the result of the Syrian regime's barbaric inhumanity", Trump's United Nations ambassador, Nikki Haley, said Saturday. After all, the strikes came just days after Trump openly expressed a desire to draw down already limited troop levels in Syria.

Trump ordered the launch of air strikes on Syria and accused President Bashar al-Assad of "barbarism and brutality".

The Pentagon said Saturday that a series of military strikes on Syria carried out by a US-led coalition struck at the "heart" of Syria's chemical weapons program.

Tuesday, 6:06 p.m. - Police took a report of a theft from a motor vehicle on Tolman Creek near the YMCA. Police said Hayda was conscious and breathing but unable to talk when they found her in the dumpster.

French President Emmanuel Macron said in a statement that a target of the strike was the Syrian government's "clandestine chemical arsenal".

The limited airstrikes came at a time when the Assad government is feeling empowered after having secured the region near the capital following other military victories backed by Russian Federation and Iran in seven years of civil war. "But our efforts have been repeatedly thwarted" by Syria and Russian Federation, she said.

In response, Trump tweeted that while Russian Federation vowed to protect Syria against attack, "Get ready Russian Federation, because [attacks] will be coming, nice and new and "smart!". "You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!"

Look at all of the instances of their use of chemical weapons over the last few years, and look at the very limited target set of the USA -led attack.

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.

"We can not purge the world of evil or act every where, there is tyranny is a troubled place".

"Every city in the Middle East that has a water purification system probably has some chlorine. We will try to make it better, but it is a troubled place". One is chemical weapons proliferation: neither side wants it in the region or globally, and the other is political process: the United States could try to re-engage and move forward.
