Weapons inspectors plan to head to Syria's Douma hours after strikes

On Saturday, the Syrian army said the regime had retaken all of Eastern Ghouta after the last rebels left Douma.

The United States, Britain and France carried out a wave of strikes against the Syrian regime on Saturday a week after the suspected deadly gas attack on the rebel-held Damascus suburb of Douma, in which 40 people were said to have been killed.

Syrian air defenses intercepted most of the incoming missiles, according to the report, which urged citizens not to believe other media reports "intentionally or unintentionally" exaggerating the results of the attack.

"We strongly condemn (Syria's suspected action) under the position that the proliferation and use of chemical weapons can not, under any circumstances, be tolerated because they threaten the peace and security of the global community", the foreign ministry said in a statement.

The pontiff said after his traditional Sunday blessing that "despite the tools available to the worldwide community, it is hard to agree on a common action toward peace in Syria or other regions of the world".

The report showed people waving Syrian flags, alongside those of Iran and Russia— the main allies of Syrian President Bashar Assad during years of the country's conflict — in the face of what many called "limited" or even "failed" strikes created to punish Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons.

The meeting took place at a hotel in the capital Damascus on Sunday. She says: "President Assad has an absolutely positive attitude, a good mood".

The United States, Britain and France fired more than 100 missiles at Syria in the first coordinated Western military intervention against the Damascus government.

The ministry also pointed out that the strikes were carried out when the Syrian troops's offensive against IS [Islamic State, formerly ISIS], Jabhat al-Nusra, and other terrorist groups was successful. "All facts point to the desire of the U.S. and its allies to provide the radicals and extremists with an opportunity to gather their breath, restore their ranks, drag out the bloodshed on Syrian soil and thereby complicate the political settlement", the ministry said. French President Emmanuel Macron spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday, hours before the Western missile strikes.

Rebels had captured it in 2012, and Syrian government fighters had not entered it since. Syria and Russian Federation, its ally, have denied the allegations.
