Trump issues warning on Syria missile strikes

As you are the Member of Parliament who is supposed to represent me I would like you to know that I strongly object to any British support for any illegal action, especially if initiated by the United States.

She added: "President Trump must also hold Putin accountable for his enabling of the Assad regime's atrocities against the Syrian people". They were launched just before 9 p.m. ET in coordination with Britain and France, according to General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Trump said he was holding meetings on Thursday on Syria, and expected to make decisions "fairly soon".

Indeed, if the West does not hold both Russian Federation and the regime in Tehran to account for the atrocity in Douma, they will pay a big price in near future in European Union capitals and Washington. An AP reporter in Damascus says the attacks turned the sky orange.

On Thursday, Russia's military said Douma has been brought under full control of the Syrian government under a Russia-mediated deal that secured the evacuation of the rebels and thousands of civilians after it was recaptured by Syrian forces.

In New York, Russia's United Nations ambassador warned the priority in Syria was to avert US-led strikes that could lead to a confrontation between the world's two preeminent nuclear powers. The demonstrators waved victory signs - and Syrian, Russian and Iranian flags - clapped their hands, danced and honked their vehicle horns.

"We have to engage our brains as well as our emotions here, not be stampeded by those videos which are described as being unverified, but which by dint of being repeated over and over again come to acquire a spurious credibility".

"We call upon. members of the global community to seriously consider the possible consequences of such accusations, threats and especially action (against Syria)", Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.

Speaking from the White House, Trump says, "To Iran and to Russian Federation, I ask: What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children?"

Via Twitter, where his candor is often remarkable, President Donald Trump has already warned that missiles "will be coming".

If the Prime Minister does decide to join US President Donald Trump in calling for airstrike action, the jets will fly from Norfolk to the RAF base in Cyprus tonight.

Macron said of the use of chemical weapons, "The red line set by France in May 2017 has been crossed".

UK Prime Minister Theresa May said the targeted strikes were not aimed at escalating tensions in the region and that the sites were chosen to prevent civilian casualties.

UK's Defence Ministry said four RAF Tornado jets took part in the strike.

Trump indicated the strikes would continue until the Syrian regime's use of chemical weapons ends. During one speech, he said, "We must as a nation be more unpredictable".

Loud explosions lit up the skies over the Syrian capital, as Trump announced the airstrikes.

One was said to be the Syrian Republican Guard headquarters on Mount Qasioun.

"Specifically, the Government needs to explain who is strengthened if and when Assad is weakened". "Two health facilities were also reportedly affected by these attacks".

Syrian media reported that Syrian defenses hit 13 rockets south of Damascus.

Anything is possible when the missiles start flying, but the USA and Russian Federation have a system for avoiding this scenario - it's known as the deconfliction hotline. "I'm not ready to speculate that that would happen", Mattis said, referring to the prospect of open conflict with Russian Federation.

What is less clear is whether sarin or a sarin-like agent was also used.

There are 192 signatories to the United Nations' Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

Russian Federation has described the reports of a chemical attack as a "provocation" created to justify Western intervention. Appearing before the House Armed Services Committee, US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told lawmakers that the use of chemical weapons was "inexcusable".

Young children treated in aftermath of suspected chemical attack. "It is due to arrive in Damascus on April 14", TASS news agency quoted Lavrov as saying.

Earlier this week, missiles were launched at the T-4 airbase in central Homs Governorate.

Syria has denied carrying out the chemical attack and warned that Western military strikes would risk starting a war.

The reports come as the U.S. have mobilised its forces in preparation to strike Assad forces in Syria.

Some reports surfaced on Wednesday that military hardware was being moved from Syrian bases.
