Precision air strikes in Syria in retaliation of suspected chemical attack

Precision air strikes in Syria in retaliation of suspected chemical attack

Speaking to United States media yesterday, Ms Haley defended the air strikes, warning that if action had not been taken, the U.S. could also become a target of chemical attacks.

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani, right, shakes hands with Russian President Vladimir Putin during their meeting at the Saadabad Palace in Tehran, Iran, November 1, 2017.

Meanwhile, Mr Trump defended his use of the term "mission accomplished" to describe the operation in Syria.

The "mission has not been accomplished", said Suzanne Akhras, president of the Syrian Community Network.

Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin will announce on Monday further economic sanctions on Russian Federation for supporting the Syrian regime.

While he declared success, the Pentagon said the pummelling of three chemical-related facilities left enough others intact to enable the Assad government to use banned weapons against civilians if it chooses.

The UK, US and France have presented plans for a ceasefire in Syria in the wake of their joint airstrikes on the war-torn country. They haven't laid out a strategy and military action shouldn't be taken as a one off.

"It is the lack of approval by the U.N. Department for Safety and Security for OPCW experts to visit the site in Douma that is the problem", Ryabkov told reporters, adding that he checked just a short while ago what was delaying their visit.

Socialist Unity Centre of India activists in Kolkata burned an effigy of Donald Trump as they protested the strikes.

"We haven't said that we're going to bring them home in six months".

Russian Federation said it is not curtailing the mission's visit, and appears instead to be blaming the worldwide organisation for the delay.

"If you look at what Russian Federation is doing, they continue to be involved with all the wrong actors, whether their involvement in Ukraine, whether you look at how they are supporting Venezuela, whether you look in Syria and their way of propping up Assad and working with Iran, that continues to be a problem", Haley said, adding that the use of a poisoning agent against a spy in England is "another issue".

Prime Minister Theresa May will face questions from MPs on Monday, when parliament reconvenes after a break.

He also called her justification on humanitarian grounds "legally debatable".

And the Iranian leader called the strikes an "invasion" aimed at "emboldening defeated terrorists", according to the country's official IRNA news agency.

With our allies Great Britain and France, the US will make it clear the use of chemical weapons will not be tolerated.

Bombing Syria was in Britain's national interest and has had strong worldwide support, Theresa May will insist as she tells Parliament why she ordered the attack.

In an unusual move, the British government said it would seek an emergency House of Commons debate on the airstrikes so legislators could have their say.
