Syria chemical attack staged by United Kingdom, claims Russian Federation

Syria chemical attack staged by United Kingdom, claims Russian Federation

"We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences", said Anatoly Antonov, the Russian ambassador to the U.S. Syria's civil war, which began as a popular uprising against Assad, is now in its eighth year.

"I don't think we're at the Cuban missile crisis level, but we're getting pretty damn close", Russian Federation expert Boris Zilberman of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies told AFP. But Moscow remains alone because leaders of Western countries have taken the side of the USA, announcing that they will join it if it made a decision to attack the Assad forces directly.

"You shouldn't be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!" Trump, and in a later briefing Mattis, went to lengths to call on other countries to join the opposition to Assad.

U.S., British and French attack aircraft, including two U.S. Air Force B-1B strategic bombers, launched stealthy, long-range missiles from outside Syrian airspace, officials said.

Putin, in his condemnation Saturday of the airstrikes, called for an emergency U.N. Security Council session and described the assault as the latest in two decades of American-led interventions that, in the Kremlin's telling, have unwound the worldwide order.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, striking a cautious tone hours after Trump's threat of missile strikes, said the United States was assessing intelligence about the suspected attack.

After Trump's tweet, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based war monitor, said pro-government forces were emptying main airports and military air bases. Russian military assistance since 2015 has allowed Assad to break a stalemate with the rebels, some of whom are backed by the U.S.

But the US and its allies have expressed confidence that chlorine gas and a nerve agent were used in the April 7 attack, and that Assad's forces were behind it.

A French frigate, UK Royal Navy submarines laden with cruise missiles and the USS Donald Cook, an American destroyer equipped with Tomahawk land attack missiles, have all moved into range of Syria's sun-bleached coast. "Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military". Escalating United States involvement could possibly have a devastating impact that could alter the world.

After the Douma attack, the insurgent group dug in there, Jaish al-Islam, finally agreed to withdraw.

The attacking air force did not enter Syrian air space but fired from offshore over the Mediterranean Sea close to the Syrian border and after flying over Lebanon, the Russian military said.

The strikes "successfully hit every target", White told reporters at the Pentagon. "We're still working on this".

The United States, France and Britain launched military strikes in Syria to punish regime leader Bashar al Assad for an apparent chemical attack against civilians and to deter him from doing it again, President Donald Trump announced.

"So much Fake News about what is going on in the White House".

The Russian Defense Ministry. the U.S. used Navy ships in the Red Sea, Air Force B-1B, F-15 and F-16 aircraft in the dawn attack.

He said Britain had told the White Helmets, who act as first responders in rebel-held areas, to fake the suspected chemical attack in the town of Douma.

The allies reportedly had conclusive evidence that Syria used chemical weapons on its own people.

"Our relationship with Russian Federation is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War", he tweeted, a day after his country and Russian Federation clashed diplomatically in the UN Security Council over the draft resolutions to deal with the allegations of chemical weapons use in Syria by the Syrian forces.

Trump warned on Wednesday that missiles "will be coming" in response to the Douma incident.

The Ministry claims the air strikes were a response to the "success" of Al Assad's Syrian army in liberating their territory from global terrorism.

Syria's President Bashar Assad announced after a US military strike that his country would respond, while Russia's ambassador to Washington warned of unspecified "consequences".

Russian Federation warned the West Friday against any "dangerous" moves on Syria as its rivals hesitated over possible strikes on the country which Moscow has warned could lead to "war".

"Russia condemns in the strongest possible terms the attack against Syria, where Russian military personnel are assisting the legitimate government in its counterterrorism efforts", Putin said in English language statement posted Saturday on the Kremlin's website.

Macron claimed in a TV interview Thursday that he had "proof" that Assad's regime had used chemical weapons and vowed a response "in due course".
