Trump Declares 'Mission Accomplished' In Syria Strike

Assad said the airstrikes that were launched in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack by Syrian forces on the town of Douma will unify the country.

Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at the Pentagon after the overnight bombing said the targets were the Barzah Research and Development, the Him Shinshar Chemical Weapons Storage Site and the Him Shinshar Bunker Facility.

The army said almost 110 missiles hit targets in the capital Damascus and other areas, and air defence systems brought majority down.

The "before" photo on the left is from August 2013, while the "after" photo on the right was taken on Saturday April 14. "They 100 percent met their objectives", she said on ABC's "This Week".

The "American attack is an important signal to the axis of evil-Iran, Syria and Hezbollah-a signal that says the use of chemical weapons crosses the red line against humanity and will not be tolerated, " Israeli housing minister and security cabinet member Yoav Gallant, of the ruling coalition's Kulanu party, said on Twitter.

Numerous missiles fired by the US, British and French forces early on Saturday destroyed an alleged chemical weapons research centre north of Damascus.

The Pentagon assessed that nerve agents were present in the Barzah research center and that the Syrian regime employed about 40 surface-to-air missiles, but those launches occurred after the last impact of the U.S. and its allies' strike.

"Last night's strikes will become a historical footnote unless they are matched by a diplomatic offensive of sustained and serious character", said David Milliband, former United Kingdom foreign secretary and now president of the International Rescue Committee.

Donald Trump claimed the limited airstrikes were "perfectly executed" and that he "could not have had a better result". "The United States is always there and will continue to be there", she said.

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp wrote a lengthy Facebook post about the attacks which empathized with the plight of the civilians in Syria and described the images of chemical attack victims as "incredibly sad and disturbing".

"I would say there's still a residual element", he said.

The document delivered to congressmen cites "credible medical personnel. including the World Health Organization" treating the effects of a sarin gas attack.

"Last night, operations were very successful", Pentagon spokesperson Dana White said at a briefing Saturday morning.

Assad didn't comment on calls by the US State Department to declare alleged Syrian stockpiles of chemical weapons during the meeting.

Assad also declined to comment on calls by the USA state department to declare alleged Syrian stockpiles of chemical weapons, Zheleznyak said.

When asked on "Fox News Sunday" about "how our relationship with Russian Federation has changed this week", Haley said that relations are "very strained".

"The United States has taken all of diplomatic efforts, for many months now, for many years as a matter of fact".

Trump has made clear he wants to withdraw the roughly 2,000 U.S. troops involved in the anti-Islamic State campaign in Syria. We have tried at the European Union.

Ayatollah Khamenei is considered to be most powerful leader in the region against US-Israel-Saudi Arabia and their allies' designs in the region. He authorized a barrage of Tomahawk cruise missiles to hit a single Syrian airfield in April 2017 in retaliation for Assad's use of sarin gas against civilians. "This will have no impact on a government that has survived a war that lasted more than seven years". A senior Russian military official said on Saturday that Syria's air defences, which mostly consist of systems made in the former Soviet Union, had intercepted 71 of the 105 American, British and French missiles. He said Syria's air defenses were ineffective and that numerous more than 40 surface-to-air missiles fired by the Syrians were launched after the allied attack was over. The U.S. goal was to break the Syrian alliance with Iran and Russia, Glass said. I haven't watched TV to watch that. If they're used, the US promises to strike again.

The Russian disinformation campaign continues.
