"These barrel bombs were likely used in the chemical attack".

"The bombings will change the situation in Syria, especially in terms of limiting the role of Russian Federation", said Thaa'r.

Anti-war demonstrators during a protest opposite Downing Street over the possibility of British military involvement in Syria on April 13, 2018, in London, England.

But US Defense Secretary James Mattis told reporters Friday that the missiles were a "one-time shot" for now, but that the strike sent a "strong message" to "deter" Assad from carrying out another chemical attack. The Pentagon clarified on Saturday that this year's strikes involved 105 missiles, compared to 59 last year.

The U.S. had no coordination or agreements with Russians before the strike, McKenzie said.

The director of Clarion Intel Network added the Syrian President will use chemical weapons again in the future but that in the short-term he will test US President Donald Trump's red lines on the use of non-chemical weapons to continue the civil massacre in Syria.

Speaking to the press from Downing Street on Saturday morning, she described the joint action with the us and France as "limited, targeted and effective" and insisted the aim was not to bring about regime change. But she says, "We can not allow such grievous violations of worldwide law".

They included a scientific research facility in the Damascus area, a chemical weapons storage facility west of the city of Homs and a third location that contained both a command post and a chemical weapons equipment storage facility in the same area, the USA military added.

Though some of Syria's chemical weapons infrastructure was still left, "I think we've dealt them a severe blow", McKenzie said, adding it would set the program back for years. "Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military".

U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May issued a statement on Saturday saying the "despicable and barbaric" attack killed up to 75 people, including young children, and that there were as many as 500 further casualties. "Last night we successfully hit the heart of Syria's chemical weapons enterprise, and because of these actions, we are confident we have crippled crippled Syria's chemical weapon program".

Russian Federation should take airstrikes on Syria as a warning over its use of chemical weapons, Theresa May has said.

"This collective action sends a clear message that the worldwide community will not stand by and tolerate the use of chemical weapons", Mrs May told a press conference.

Syrian forces fired 40 surface-to-air missiles during the operation, mostly after the attack was over, he said. The Russian embassy in the USA stated that "T$3 he worst apprehensions have come true".

Russian President Vladimir Putin reacted to Friday's air strikes in Syria, calling them acts of aggression.

"The current escalation of the situation around Syria has a devastating impact on the whole system of global relations", he added. "History will put everything in its place, and it has already laid heavy responsibility on Washington for bloody reprisals against Yugoslavia, Iraq and Libya".

The United Nations Security Council will hold an emergency meeting on Syria at 11 a.m. ET on Saturday.

France joined the United States and Britain in Friday's joint operation that has destroyed what Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian says is a "good part" of the Syrian government's chemical weapons arsenal.
