  • READ: President Trump announces strikes in Syria

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

It is the second time in less than a year that Trump has ordered strikes on the Assad regime in response to a suspected chemical weapon attack.

Russian Federation and Iran warned of "consequences" after the strike.

The strikes risked raising tensions in an already combustible region but appeared designed not to trigger a military response from Russian Federation and Iran.

"Assad's recent attack - and today's response - are the direct result of Russia's failure to keep that promise", Trump said. Again, we are being threatened.

President Vladimir Putin has said Russian Federation will call an emergency session of the UN Security Council over air strikes on Syria.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said the attack was a crime and would not achieve any gains.

The attack was supported by other United States allies, including Canada and Australia. "United States president, UK prime minister and the president of France are criminals", Khamenei said in a speech cited by Iranian TV. He admitted as much, saying that "should [Assad] decide to use more chemical weapons in the future", the U.S. would be willing to go back into Syria.

"More than 100 cruise missiles and air-to-land missiles were fired by the US, Britain and France from the sea and air at Syrian military and civilian targets", the ministry said in a statement quoted by RIA Novosti news agency, adding that "a significant number" were shot down by Syrian air defences.

U.S. President Donald Trump said he was prepared to sustain the response until the government of Assad stopped its use of chemical weapons.

She said she approved "targeted and coordinated strikes to degrade Syria's chemical weapons capabilty and deter their use". Another eyewitness say that Barzah district of Damascus had been hit in the strikes. Britain's defence ministry said "very careful scientific analysis" had been applied to maximise the destruction of stockpiled chemicals while minimising any risk of contamination to surrounding areas.

Macron, who spoke to Trump again on Friday, said France had proof the Syrian government launched chlorine gas attacks and his country would not tolerate it.

A look at U.S. involvement in Syria
The Russian aircraft were scrambled in response to reports of seven US spy planes near the coastal regions of Tartus and Lattakia. Images have started to emerge on social media, apparently showing Syrian air defense systems responding to incoming strikes.


UK PM May: British forces conduct targeted strike against Syria
The Prime Minister explained: "I have taken this decision because I believe it is the right thing to do. We have sought to use every possible diplomatic channel to achieve this.


And every time the U.S. hits a Syrian target, there's always a risk that something goes wrong: A USA warplane is shot down, the U.S. accidentally hits a civilian target, or accidentally kills a Russian or Iranian-backed fighter -prompting one or both of those countries to retaliate against the United States.

The Russian military says Syria's Soviet-made air defense systems have shot down all 12 cruise missile aimed at a Syrian air base.

In conflicts, there are rules about what's acceptable - and chemical weapons are never supposed to be used.

A photo released on April 14, 2018 on the Twitter page of Hezbollah's "Central War Media" account shows night footage of flares above Damascus seen through a night-vision device as Western strikes reportedly hit Syrian military bases and chemical research centres in and around Syria's capital.

In 2013, president Putin and his government promised the world that they would guarantee the elimination of Syria's chemical weapons.

Western air strikes on Syria will not diminish the army's fight against all remaining militants in the country, the military has said in a televised statement. France, the United Kingdom and the United States will brief allies on actions taken in Syria, the official said.

Evidence that the nerve agent sarin also was used is inconclusive, he said.

"Never said when an attack on Syria would take place". The US and its allies struck civil and military facilities in Syria, violating the UN Charter and global law, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, responding to the intervention in Syria. The message to Assad must be that the cost of using chemical weapons is worse than any perceived benefit, that the United States and our allies have the will and capability to continue imposing those costs, and that Iran and Russian Federation will ultimately be unsuccessful in protecting Assad from our punitive response.

The official acknowledged that could require a more sustained United States air and naval presence in the region, as well as intensified satellite and other surveillance of Syria.

Williamson said Britain had had to act swiftly and added May would update parliament when lawmakers returned on Monday.

Trump has been leery of US military involvement in the Middle East and is eager to withdraw roughly 2,000 troops who are in Syria as part of the battle against Islamic State militants.
