Explosions rocked Syria's capital. What's next for US, Iran and Russian Federation?

15 April, 2018, 00:54 | Author: Sherman Richardson

An official says in a statement Saturday that President Donald Trump made clear past year that the use of chemical weapons was a red line not to be crossed.

The U.K., U.S. and France launched the attacks near Damascus early Saturday.

The Syrian government's staunch allies strongly condemned the overnight airstrikes on Assad regime targets, with Iran's supreme leader branding as "criminals" President Donald Trump, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron.

Speaking from the White House, Trump says, "To Iran and to Russian Federation, I ask: What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women and children?"

In a statement issued by the Kremlin, the Russian leader says Moscow is calling an emergency meeting of the United Nations' Security Council over the strike launched by the U.S., Britain and France.

"This is the first time as prime minister that I have had to take the decision to commit our armed forces in combat - and it is not a decision I have taken lightly", she said.

In Iran, senior Iranian official Ali-Akbar Velayati warned that the "Zionist crimes in Syria will not remain unanswered".

The Western missile strikes demonstrate the volatile nature of the Syrian civil war, which started in March 2011 as an anti-Assad uprising but is now a proxy conflict involving a number of world and regional powers and a myriad of insurgent groups.

The target of the attack was not identified.

Israel said on Friday that an Iranian drone shot down in February by its air force had been armed with explosives meant to carry out the first direct attack on Israeli territory by the Tehran regime.

Early on Saturday, the USA, the United Kingdom and France fired more than 100 missiles from ships and manned aircraft at Syria in response to an alleged chemical attack in the city of Douma, which the countries blamed on Damascus.

"Let them make no mistake now: they are now [fighting] face to face with the Islamic Republic in Iran", he said.

A statement carried by state news agency SANA said the strikes aimed to block a probe by the OPCW global chemical watchdog into an alleged gas attack outside Damascus. "This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very bad regime", he added. Five out the eight missiles used were said to have been destroyed by Syrian air defenses.

Analyst Hossein Sheikholeslam, a former Iranian ambassador to Damascus, told state television the attacks would help unite Syrians behind the government. It was not immediately clear whether Trump meant the allied military operation would extend beyond an initial nighttime round of missile strikes.

Earlier Friday, Nasrallah's deputy said a broader war was unlikely in the region despite Trump's threats to launch retaliatory strikes.

"Because the reality is, as the President said forthrightly to the American people, Russian Federation and Iran are part of the problem and they need to behave appropriately here".
