USA to hit Russian Federation with new sanctions for aiding Syria's Assad

  • British Forces Conduct Targeted Strike Against Syria Says Theresa May

When asked whether the UK had communicated with Russian Federation ahead of the strikes, May said: "This is not something that the United Kingdom has been involved in".

The U.S. had fired Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian airfield in April 2017 in retaliation for Assad's use of sarin gas against civilians.

But Russia has blocked countless resolutions against its Syrian ally and the regime has appeared determined to continue its military reconquest of the country. Peskov said only that Russian Federation was against "groundless" accusations about who was responsible for the attack.

But the USA military strike on Syria could also increase concerns in North Korea that giving up its nuclear arms would leave the country defenseless in a similar attack. And we were able to repel it with Soviet missiles from the 1970s.

Russian Federation has denied allegations of election meddling and has denied accusations of other cyber-attacks on power grids in the past.

"They didn't shoot one down", Trump said during an appearance Monday in Florida, mocking Russia's ever-growing claims of success in thwarting the attack.

Syrian authorities are offering 22 people to interview as witnesses instead, he said, adding that he hoped "all necessary arrangements will be made ... to allow the team to deploy to Douma as soon as possible".

Mr Johnson, speaking at a summit of European Union foreign ministers, stressed it was "not an attempt to change the tide of the war in Syria or to have regime change" and "the Syrian war in many ways will go on in its terrible, miserable way". He said Russian Federation "should join our efforts to promote a political process in Syria that would allow a way out of the crisis".

The photographs show the three sites targetted in Saturday's airstrikes before and after they were decimated by US, US and French missiles.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, writing in The Guardian, said: "The military action at the weekend was legally questionable". "That doesn't mean that the Syrians can't re-create the chemical weapons to use again".

"It is a common industrial chemical", said Daryl Kimball at the Washington-based Arms Control Association, who favors broad action to deter use of chemical weapons, including chlorine.

Also Monday, British Prime Minister Theresa May was to face angry lawmakers for authorizing the strikes without a vote in Parliament.

Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday, and in a joint statement released by the Kremlin they called the missile strike an "illegal action", that "seriously damages the prospects for a political settlement in Syria".

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday warned that if the strikes continue "it will inevitably entail chaos in global relations".

Iran also issued strong statements early Saturday condemning the strikes.

The three allies have produced a draft United Nations resolution which also includes proposals for an independent investigation into alleged toxic gas attacks to identify perpetrators.

Iran, which has also backed Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad since the conflict began in 2011, also warned of "regional consequences". Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin "will be announcing those on Monday, if he hasn't already".

"If you look at what Russian Federation is doing, they continue to be involved with all the wrong actors, whether their involvement in Ukraine, whether you look at how they are supporting Venezuela, whether you look in Syria and their way of propping up Assad and working with Iran, that continues to be a problem", Haley said on Fox News Sunday. In an apparent slight at Trump, who claimed this week that the new missiles would be "nice, new and smart", Moscow said some of the equipment was designed as long ago as the 1950s. They need to do more.
