Russian Federation warns of war over Syria strikes

"Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria".

Trump chastised Syria's two main allies, Russia and Iran, for their roles in supporting "murderous dictators", and noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin had guaranteed a 2013 global agreement for Assad to get rid of all of his chemical weapons. A joint military operation, possibly with France rather than the the lead, could send a message of worldwide unity about enforcing the prohibitions on chemical weapons and counter Syria's political and military support from Russian Federation and Iran. This U.S. -Russian deal was enshrined under auspices of the UN Security Council.

This was stated by the press service of the White house.

The Jaish al-Islam group in Douma agreed on Sunday to withdraw, hours after a suspected chemical weapons attack on the town that has raised the prospect of US strikes.

"The situation in the world is becoming more and more chaotic but all the same we hope that common sense will finally prevail and global relations will take a constructive path", he said.

"Good souls will not be humiliated", Assad tweeted, while hundreds of Syrians gathered in Damascus, the capital, where they flashed victory signs and waved flags in scenes of defiance after the early morning barrage.

The strikes "successfully hit every target", Ms White told reporters at the Pentagon.

Asked specifically about the prospect of military action, Trump said: "Nothing's off the table".

Although officials said the singular target was Mr Assad's chemical weapons capability, his air force - including helicopters he allegedly has used to drop chemical weapons on civilians - were spared.

Trump's latest threat is a response to comments made by Alexander Zasypkin, Russia's ambassador to Lebanon, who on Tuesday evening said Russia would respond to any United States strike on Syri by targeting any missiles and launchers.

French Defence Minister Florence Parly said that "with our allies, we ensured that the Russians were warned ahead of time". The U.S. government has not generally supported arguments by human rights advocates for humanitarian interventions. The NATO alliance gave its full backing.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel called the attack "necessary and appropriate".

The tweet marks the most detailed indication of what the US will do in response to an apparent chemical attack in the rebel-held Syrian city of Douma on Saturday.

That did not mean military strikes would continue.

Assad said Thursday that Western threats to strike Syria are based on "lies" and seek to undermine his forces' advances near Damascus.

The tweet was criticized by some lawmakers and military analysts who questioned the wisdom of the president publicly telegraphing his move - something Trump denounced former President Barack Obama for doing. "Obviously we are working urgently with our allies and partners to assess what has happened on the ground", she said.

It said on Wednesday that samples taken from the site had not revealed any chemical substances.

When pressed, he acknowledged that some unspecified portion of Assad's chemical arms infrastructure was not targeted. "I am not like other administrations, where they say, 'We are going to do this in four weeks.' It doesn't work that way". However, I think there's less to it than meets the eye.

Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said missiles first struck a scientific research centre in the Damascus area that he said was a centre of Syrian research, development, production and testing of chemical and biological warfare technology.

"It does not exist anymore", he added.

"New, stealthy JASSM missiles could be delivered by B-1B and B-52 (and now likely F-15E and F-16)", Mount said.

President Donald Trump has emerged from a meeting with his national security team without a "final decision" on how to respond to a suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria.

Theresa May has summoned an emergency meeting of the Cabinet to discuss the crisis over Syria as Donald Trump signalled the United States was ready to launch air strikes against the regime of Bashar Assad.

"Even though the deal improved the situation considerably, we suspected the Syrians had failed to declare elements of their stockpile", he said.

In that strike, 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles were launched from the USS Ross and USS Porter in the Mediterranean.

Defense Secretary James Mattis said Wednesday that the USA and its allies are mulling how to respond to the attack.

Assad has been blamed for previous attacks by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and UN-backed war crimes investigators.

"We worked assiduously through the final days of the administration to galvanize our allies and other global partners to help us address these omissions".
