US Fires 'One Time Shot' At Syria After Chlorine Attack

Open source

The U.S., United Kingdom and France bombed multiple targets in Syria Friday night in response to an alleged chemical weapons attacks by the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The recent attack killed dozens of children and families near Damascus in Syria, and is believed to have been carried out under the direction of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The safety secretary says Friday's strikes have "despatched a clear message" to Assad and his "murderous lieutenants".

Global observers with the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons have yet to reach the Damascus suburb of Douma, where the attack took place.

Witnesses saw blasts surrounding much of the Syrian capital and a huge fire could be seen from a distance to the east.

Syrian television reported that Syria's air defenses, which are substantial, have responded to the attack. The first target was a scientific research center located in the greater Damascus area.

US officials said there was no indication so far that Syrian air defenses struck attacking Western aircraft or ships. He is not giving details about what equipment is involved in the operation or what sites it is targeting.

Russia's U.S. Ambassador said the attack "will not be left without consequences". "America does not seek an indefinite presence in Syria under no circumstances", he said.

He said the US was "very confident" chlorine was used, but are "not ruling out" sarin use. An AP reporter in Damascus says the assaults turned the sky orange.

Last year, in response to a chemical weapons attack against civilians and to signal the regime to cease chemical weapons use, we targeted the military base from which the weapons were delivered.

Mattis said Friday's attack was about double the size of that launched by the U.S.in April, 2017, and that Tomahawk cruise missiles were used against multiple Syrian targets.

James Mattis also urged the world community to act together with a singular resolve to prevent any country from using chemical weapons in future.

He supplies ominously, "Hopefully someday we'll get along with Russian Federation, and even perhaps Iran, nevertheless maybe not". "The third target, which was in the vicinity of the second target, contained both a chemical weapon equipment storage facility and an important command post".

Trump announced the strikes, in coordination with France and Britain, from the White House Friday night. He talked about the three nations have "marshaled their righteous vitality".

On Thursday, Trump added a point on Twitter that he "never said when an attack on Syria would take place" but it "could be very soon or not so soon at all!".

Despite foreign allies' expressions of confidence in the Syrian regime's culpability in the attack, U.S. officials have not ventured that far in public.

Several lawmakers grilled the Pentagon chief on the legal authorities the military has for action in Syria beyond the remit of its current mission, which is to work to destroy the Islamic State group.

Trump spoke from the White House Friday evening time.

"The only reason Assad is still in power is because of the Russians regrettable vetoes in the United Nations, and the Russian and Iranian military", Mattis said".
