Trump's message to Iran, Russia after Syria strikes

THE LATEST International reaction to U.S.-led airstrikes on Syria

The U.S. said Saturday its airstrikes against Syria were successful while Syrian allies Iran and Russian Federation argue the attack was a violation of global law.

He says the overnight operation carried out by the United States, France and Britain followed that example.

Meanwhile, May said the missile strike, created to minimise civilian casualties, was aimed at deterring further use of chemical weapons and was not an attempt to topple the Syrian government.

Iran's involvement in Syria in support of Assad has alarmed Israel, which has said it will counter any threat.

On Wednesday Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and urged him to do nothing to destabilize Syria, according to a Kremlin statement.

"Iran is opposed to the use of chemical weapons on the basis of religious, legal and ethical standards, while at the same time it. strongly condemns [using this] as an excuse to commit aggression against a sovereign state", said the statement cited by local media.

US -led strikes in Syria are an "important signal" to Iran, Syria and Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, a senior Israeli cabinet minister said on Saturday.

The United States and European allies launched airstrikes on Saturday against Syrian research, storage and military targets under the pretext of a suspected chemical attack near Damascus last weekend that killed more than 40 people.

Russia's Ministry of Defense claimed Syria's air defense systems intercepted 71 missiles launched in the airstrikes. But Iran is different because its presence depends so much on Russian Federation; without an air force or land borders it has to tolerate everything that hits it, even if Israel strikes its bases time and time again. He criticized the US and its allies for launching the strike without waiting for inspectors from the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog to visit the area.

The statement also accused Syria of providing military bases for Iran, putting its "territory, forces and leadership in danger".

It was cleared for publication on Friday night that the Iranian drone that was downed by Israel in February was carrying explosive materials.

Ravid added that the White House and State Department had sent messages to Israel's ambassador in Washington, Ron Dermer, and to other diplomats at the Israeli embassy about the importance of relations with Poland.

May authorized the strikes without a vote from Parliament, which has been in recess. The organization has previously determined that chemical weapons have been used in Syria.

The Syrian defense minister, for his part, said that such criminal attacks will not weaken the Syrian nation's will to eliminate terrorists in the country.

Syrian television reported that Syria's air defenses, which are substantial, responded to the attack.
