Trump Launches Airstrikes on Syria; Russia, Iran Warn of Consequences

Share

According to Tehran based Pres TV, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that the "aggressive" U.S. move to carry out military strikes against Syria reveals that Washington has "direct ties" with terrorists.

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei denounced US President Donald Trump, France's Emmanuel Macron and Britain's Theresa May after they launched strikes Saturday against the Syrian regime, branding them "criminals".

The attack followed an attempted attack on Israel by an Iranian military drone fitted with explosives that entered Israeli air space on February 10.

"An act of aggression against a sovereign state that is on the frontline in the fight against terrorism was committed without a mandate from the UN Security Council and in violation of the UN Charter and norms and principles of worldwide law", Putin said.

The Israeli military officials are concerned about the Iranian-Russian reaction to the US-French-UK aerial aggression on Syria on Saturday, according to Haaretz newspaper which added that the Zionist government expects restricting the free movement of its military air force over Syria. All three participants insisted the strikes were not aimed at toppling President Bashar al-Assad or intervening in the conflict.

Haaretz pointed out that "Israel" is concerned about the possible USA decision to withdraw troops from Syria in light of the President Donald Trump's statements which considered that the tripartite aggression is enough.

In Damascus, Syria's deputy foreign minister, Faisal Mekdad, met inspectors from the global chemical weapons watchdog OPCW for about three hours in the presence of Russian officers and a senior Syrian security official.

A large volume of high-resolution photos and video from Douma, taken in the aftermath of the attack, document victims suffering from severe disruption to the central nervous systems, consistent with exposure to chemical agents. Moscow condemned the Western states for refusing to wait for OPCW's findings before attacking. "The Russian and Iranian responses will likely be shrill rhetorically, but direct responses are unlikely", said Dennis Ross, a longtime West Asia expert who has worked for several Presidents. "The United States, France and Britain proved their commitment to fight chemical warfare is not limited to just declarations".

They have said a roughly 20-year prison term for Atilla would be appropriate. Financially, Iran has provided the regime with financial support totaling at least $6 billion annually through mid-2015. Moscow also said it was calling an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council, where it is a permanent member, to discuss the "aggressive actions" of the U.S. and its allies.

Haley said that the United States would not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals were accomplished. "We have no doubt that Hezbollah acts as an extension of Iran's will".
