Vladimir Putin condemns air strikes on Syria

Damascus sky lights up with service to air missile fire

Damascus sky lights up with service to air missile fire

Sharif Shehadeh, a former Syrian lawmaker, said by telephone from Damascus that the attack was a victory for Syria.

"I support this targeted response to Assad's horrific use of chemical weapons against his own people, and we are right to act with our allies Great Britain and France against this violation of global law". Damascus's allies saying the buildings hit had been evacuated in advance.

President Donald Trump declared, "Mission Accomplished!" on Saturday after the USA and its allies hit at least three chemical and biological weapons facilities in Syria with more than 120 missiles in a coordinated pre-dawn attack.

The U.S., Britain and France said they launched airstrikes against Syrian chemical sites after obtaining evidence that poisonous gas was used last weekend on the Damascus suburb of Douma by President Bashar Assad's government.

Prime Minister Theresa May said, per CNN, she had "authorized British armed forces to conduct coordinated targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian regime's chemical weapons capability and deter their use".

Meanwhile, the UK's Ambassador to the UN, Karen Pierce, said the UK's involvement in the air strikes against Syria was a "humanitarian intervention", which was legally justified.

Local Reaction On Speaker Paul Ryan's Announcement
With few actual accomplishments Paul Ryan was somehow placed on a pedestal as some gifted intellectual. "I took it reluctantly". He had just hosted a donor retreat last week in Texas, and most officials believed he would not leave until after November.

He claimed that Syria's defence system had intercepted 71 missiles fired by American, British and French forces on Saturday, and said that in the past year and a half, Russian Federation had been fully restoring Syria's air defence system.

Putin demanded a United Nations Security Council immediately.

In a statement by its foreign ministry spokesman Hua Chunying, it called for a "return to the framework of global law" and said it was "opposed to the use of force".

Ms Merkel this week had said Germany would not take part in any military action against Syria.

This - is the suspected use of chemical weapons by Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad on his own people.

President Donald Trump "enforces" the red line and the USA will sustain the pressure on the war-torn nation, she said.

She also shared several selfies with friends. "This is so insane ", Kardashian repeated as she and her friends enter the school. She begins by sharing that she rented a party bus for her and her Marymount alumni friends.

Thaaer Alibrahim said he thinks the USA -led attack is just for show.

But he says the recent Turkish invasion has been devastating and he says he and his wife were especially anxious to hear the president say he wanted to pull United States troops out of Syria.

"The strikes may convince (Russian President Vladimir) Putin to stop further use (of chemical weapons) by Assad as it remains clear we are pulling out of Syria".

She said: "We can not stand by and let Russian Federation trash every worldwide norm and allow use of chemical weapons to go unanswered".

Mr Nebenzia accused the US, UK and France of "hooliganism" and of "demonstrating a blatant disregard for worldwide law". Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called it a crime and termed Western leaders as criminals.

More than 100 missiles struck in response to a suspected deadly chemical attack on the town of Douma last week.

Russian Federation condemns attack on Syria
The Kremlin on Saturday condemned Western air strikes on Syria where its armed forces are backing President Bashar al-Assad. Syrian government air defenses shot down at least a dozen missiles over the Damascus area, Syrian state media reported.
