Facts speak louder than missiles in Syrian crisis

Facts speak louder than missiles in Syrian crisis

New Western air strikes in Syria would provoke "chaos" in worldwide relations, Russian President Vladimir Putin told his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, on Sunday.

The two leaders "found that this illegal action seriously damaged the prospects of a political settlement in Syria", the statement said.

Before dawn on Saturday, a coalition of USA, United Kingdom and French forces launched more than 100 missiles targeting three chemical facilities in Syria in retaliation for an apparent chemical attack that killed dozens of civilians on April 7.

The Pentagon said no further action was planned but Washington's envoy to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, warned that the US was "locked and loaded" should another gas attack occur.

People could be heard shouting "Allah, Syria, and only Bashar", a reference to Syrian leader Bashar Assad.

The last rebels were bussed out of Eastern Ghouta after the alleged chemical attack on their final holdout of Douma, which rescuers and medics said killed more than 40 people.

The U.K. -based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the Syrian war through activists on the ground, said installations belonging to the country's elite Republican Guards were also targeted.

"We are prepared to sustain this pressure if the Syrian regime is foolish enough to test our will".

The Ambassador said a "pre-designed scenario" was being implemented in response to the strikes which the United States was a "one-time shot" targeting Syria's chemical weapons program. "We remain postured to protect our forces and those of the coalition should anything occur", the general said.

If President Assad was behind a chemical attack, Wauquiez said, he should answer to the International Criminal Court.

They are due to surrender within the next few hours. "They didn't do anything, I saw the entire thing", another White person said. She identified herself as a friend of the man they were meeting with.

He said "10 days ago President Trump wanted to withdraw from Syria".

Her comments follow allegations by the head of an global chemical weapons watchdog on Monday that Syrian and Russian officials cited "pending security issues" to keep independent inspectors from reaching the site of the suspected April 7 chemical attack.

Responding to Haley's remarks about the plans for new sanctions, Evgeny Serebrennikov, deputy head of the defence committee of Russia's upper house of Parliament, said Moscow was ready for the penalties, according to RIA news agency.

"Bashar Al -Assad will react awfully the reaction will be on the Syrian people not on anyone else". "We wanted their friends Iran and Russian Federation to know that we meant business and that they were going to be feeling the pain from this as well". "Engaging our military in Syria when no direct threat to the United States exists and without prior congressional authorization would violate the separation of powers that is clearly delineated in the Constitution", they said.

Most of the missiles were intercepted by Syrian air defenses.

After the middle-of-the-night attack on Syria, some USA television commentators poked fun at Trump's use of the "Mission accomplished" term, first used in 2003 by former President George W. Bush, who claimed prematurely and wrongly that the US had successfully completed its military attack on Iraq.

French President Emmanuel Macron says France wants to launch a diplomatic initiative over Syria that would include Western powers, Russian Federation and Turkey.

Moscow also condemned the Western states for refusing to wait for the findings of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) inspection team on the alleged attack before launching the strikes.

She called the 105 missiles fired into Syria "justified, proportionate and legitimate" and said the allies took "every measure and caution" to hit only the intended targets. The missile strikes on Syria by the US, France and Great Britain have managed to drive a wedge between the Astana process guarantors - Russia, Turkey and Iran, said Science Director of the Institute of Oriental Studies at the Russian Academy of Science Vitaly Naumkin, who is also a Valdai International Discussion Club expert.

She said the three U.S. goals for accomplishing its mission were making sure chemical weapons were not used in a way that could harm USA national interests, that the Islamic State group was defeated, and that there was a good vantage point to watch what Iran was doing.
