United States strikes on Syria 'justified', says Israeli official

United States strikes on Syria 'justified', says Israeli official

Assad told his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani that a USA -led attack on Saturday would increase Syria's resolve to "fight and crush terrorism in every inch" of the country. "This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very awful regime", he said.

When asked about the possibility that airstrikes may have caused leakage of chemical agents, McKenzie said "we were able to minimize that", but said there were "probably some chemical agents" present.

Similar messages were passed from Washington to the Prime Minister's Office and the foreign ministry in Jerusalem, Ravid said. This complicated situation will be against USA interests. "No nation can succeed in the long run by promoting rogue states brutal tyrants and murderous dictators", Trump said. "They will gain no benefit; just as they did not while in Iraq, Syria & Afghanistan, over the past years, committing the same criminal acts".

The demonstrations broke out early Saturday following a wave of US, British and French military strikes to punish President Bashar Assad for suspected chemical attack against civilians. Moscow also said it was calling an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council, where it is a permanent member, to discuss the "aggressive actions" of the U.S. and its allies.

Separately, a high-ranking commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, which has been fighting alongside the military of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from the start of the Syrian war, said the United States and its allies now await the consequences of their strike on Syria.

He further challenged the federal government to prove his claims wrong or "stop negotiating for numerous girls that don't exist". There are about 100 girls left in Boko Haram captivity after the escape and release, through negotiation, of over 150 others.

The US used Tomahawk cruise missiles in its strikes in Syria, which were fired at multiple targets in the country, a US official said. Syria denies responsibility and says it gave up its chemical arsenal.

Johnson said: "The world is united in its disgust for any use of chemical weapons, but especially against civilians". Putin added that Russian military experts who inspected Douma found no trace of the attack. He criticized the U.S, Britain and France for declining to wait until after the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons completes its own investigation there.

Johnson tweeted Saturday that he welcomed the news of the military strike against major chemical weapons facilities in Syria in concert with "our USA and French allies".

Countries are obligated to act within the guidelines of the Charter of the United Nations and "international law in general", Antonio Guterres said in a statement on April 14.
