'Mission Accomplished': Trump says Syrian strike was 'perfectly executed'

'Mission Accomplished': Trump says Syrian strike was 'perfectly executed'

But last night's attack was aimed at the "heart of enterprise", the Pentagon said.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation chief Jens Stoltenberg says Russia's obstruction course at the U.N. Security Council left NATO's U.S, British and French allies no option but to launch a missile attack on key Syrian installations.

Vice President Mike PenceThe U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said President Donald Trump told her Saturday morning that if the Syrian regime uses poisonous gas again, "the United States is locked and loaded" to strike again. The attacks had continued, culminating in Saturday's attack in Douma.

In comments posted on his Twitter feed, Harris said: "The use of chemical weapons can never be tolerated in the civilized world".

"We are very confident that chlorine was used".

The UN Security Council is now meeting at Russia's request to discuss air strikes launched by the United States, France and Britain on Syria in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack.

Bennet - "The Assad regime continues to conduct heinous attacks on the people of Syria, and it is clear deterrence has not worked".

- "These are not the actions of a man". UK Prime Minister Theresa May admitted there was "no alternative path" while French president Emmanuel Macron tweeted that a "red line has been crossed" by Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad.

Speaking on the attack on Syria, British UN Envoy Karen Pierce has said: "It can not be illegal to use force to prevent the killing of such numbers of innocent people", she said in reference to the alleged chemical attack.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, also supported the US, French and British missile strikes, saying that military intervention was necessary and appropriate.

The U.S. launched what President Trump said were "precision strikes" on targets associated with the Syrian chemical weapons program.

The third target, which was also near Homs, contained both a chemical weapons equipment storage facility and a command post.

"No Syrian weapon had any effect on anything that we did", McKenzie said.

At least six loud explosions were heard in Damascus in the early hours of Saturday and smoke was seen rising over the Syrian capital, a Reuters witness said. "They are an immediate danger to the Syrian people and to our collective security". This is not about intervening in a civil war.

Putin added that the strike had a "destructive influence on the entire system of global relations".

Trump addresses some of his remarks to the Syrian regime's principal external backers, Russian Federation and Iran. "To Iran and to Russian Federation I ask: What kind of nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children?"

Syrian air defenses, however, responded firmly, shooting down most of the missiles fired at the country. The U.K. Defense Ministry said the strikes were "successful".
