Russia Condemns 'Treacherous And Insane' US Retaliation Strikes In Syria

Russia Condemns 'Treacherous And Insane' US Retaliation Strikes In Syria

US, Britain and French forces launched attacks on Syria this morning in response to a poison gas attack that killed dozens last week.

She also added that she would return to the Commons on Monday following the Easter recess to give a statement and answer questions about the attack.

The ministry said that the missiles were downed by the Arab Republic's air defenses as they approached their targets.

"Russia convenes an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss aggressive actions of the USA and its allies", President Vladimir Putin said in a statement published on the Kremlin website.

Syrian state media slammed Western strikes on Saturday as illegal and "doomed to fail", after the US, France, and Britain launched a joint operation against the Damascus government.

The current escalation of the situation in Syria "has a destructive effect on the whole system of global relations", the Kremlin said.

May said intelligence and open source accounts indicated that the regime was behind the attack in Douma last Saturday. Putin added that Russian military experts who inspected Douma found no trace of the attack. They said a chemical weapons research facility, a sarin gas warehouse and another chemical weapons storage facility were the targets for the airstrikes.

"The American, French and British aggression against Syria will fail", it said.

USA president Donald Trump announced the "combined operation" on Friday night, as Prime Minister Theresa May said there was "no practicable alternative to the use of force".

The US leader also expressed gratitude toward allies in the United Kingdom and France for their involvement and support in the operation. There has been no other official Israeli response yet. The airbase was located near Lebanon border.

Since that did not work, a more intense attack would aim to degrade his ability to carry out further such attacks, and would try to do this by hitting Syrian aircraft, military depots and chemical facilities, among other things.

She said nearly a century of global acceptance about not using chemical weapons had been eroded in Douma and Salisbury. She had received support from her Cabinet in a crisis session.

U.S. President Donald Trump said he ordered the U.S. military to launch precision strikes on the targets associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of the Syrian army. Syrians crowded onto the streets in noisy demonstrations of defiance afterward and their ally Russian Federation denounced the attack.

Alexander Sherin, deputy head of the State Duma's defense committee, says Trump "can be called Adolf Hitler No. 2 of our time _ because, you see, he even chose the time that Hitler attacked the Soviet Union".
