'Mission accomplished': Trump praises 'perfectly executed' strike on Syria

May ready to bypass Parliament & approve UK military intervention in Syria – BBC

Officials said all weapons hit their marks, which were three facilities that were a part of President Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons program.

The U.S. military, along with the United Kingdom and France, conducted a "proportional, precision, coordinated" strike in response to the Syrian regime's use of chemical weapons.

- More than 100 missiles were collectively launched overnight from British, French and American forces in Syria. Last year's strike involved 59 missiles. French and British warplanes also fired long-range missiles, while a British submarine launched cruise missiles.

The strikes appeared to have taken place far from Russia's bases near the Syrian coast.

President Trump announced Friday that he ordered the missile strikes, which occurred around 4 a.m. Saturday in Syria.

After the strikes were launched, the Russian Embassy in Washington issued a warning to the U.S.

Russian Federation has condemned US, UK and French strikes against targets in Syria over the alleged use of chemical weapons as the Western allies argued they were essential to deter the future use of illegal munitions.

She said nearly a century of global acceptance about not using chemical weapons had been eroded in Douma and Salisbury.

There were countless memes , people trying their hand at it, and even an appearance on The Ellen Show. This is just the first of major performances that are expected to grace the stage this year.

The Kremlin has repeatedly dismissed the allegations against Syria and said its own experts found no "trace of chlorine or any other chemical substance used against civilians". "It was a successful mission", White said.

The military campaign was in response to a devastating chemical attack in the rebel-controlled Damascus suburb of Douma, which killed dozens of people earlier this month.

The Pentagon claimed the strikes targeted a research center in greater Damascus and a chemical weapons storage facility and a command post west of Homs, while the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has officially stated complete disarmament of Syria since two years ago.

US Defence Secretary James Mattis said the air strikes were a "one time shot" to send a strong message to Assad. Macron's office said he spoke by phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin expressing concern about the deterioration of the situation in Syria and calling for more dialogue with Moscow.

France's aim was to deter Syria's government from using chemical weapons, she said, adding that her government did not want to exacerbate the conflict.

But what actually transpired in Syria during the early morning darkness seemed closer to the careful strategy advocated by his military brass.

Iran's Foreign Ministry has also strongly condemned the airstrikes and warned of its regional consequences. "We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents", Trump said.

The involvement of the U.K. and France will likely show Syria, Russia, and Iran that the United States is not the only nation who is willing to use force to oppose the use of chemical weapons.
