  • May ready to bypass Parliament & approve UK military intervention in Syria – BBC

President Trump declared "mission accomplished" Saturday after USA military forces carried out missile strikes with Britain and France against Syrian chemical-weapons facilities.

Chief Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White says the target choices were "very methodical", calling it a "deliberate decision" to go after chemical weapons manufacturing facilities.

Syrian state TV said three civilians were wounded in Homs after "several" missiles were intercepted by Syrian air defense systems.

"A short time ago I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad", Trump announced during a 9 p.m. televised address.

The Pentagon held a press conference following the airstrikes on Saturday, saying that the strike hit all its targets, and "attacked the heart of the Syrian chemical weapons program".

As pictures of the bombing raids aftermath continue to emerge, Mr Trump said he "could not have had a better result". "Mission Accomplished!" Trump said in a tweet today.

May said while the strike was targeted at Syria, it sent a message to anyone who used chemical weapons.

"America does not seek an indefinite presence in Syria", he said, thanking the United Kingdom and France for joining the U.S. in its fight against the Syrian regime.

Both leaders denounced the "cruel and abhorrent" attack by the Syrian regime on the town of Douma last Saturday.

The UK has begun air strikes against Syrian chemical weapons sites. She also said that the response was "justified, legitimate, and proportionate".

Trump said the operation would be conducted in cooperation with the militaries of France and Britain.

- The first was at a scientific research centre in greater Damascus involved in the development and production of chemical weapons, the second at a chemical weapons storage facility near Homs, and the third at a chemical equipment storage facility and important command post.

Russia's ambassador to the USA responded by saying the attack on its ally "will not be left without consequences".

She said nearly a century of global acceptance about not using chemical weapons had been eroded in Douma and Salisbury. "Russian Federation will demand a meeting of the UN Security Council, I think, for sure", Dzhabarov, who is the deputy head of Russia's foreign affairs committee, was quoted by RIA as saying.

The strike was twice the size of a previous strike carried out by the Trump administration in April 2017 and, McKenzie noted, there has so far not been a response from military actors within Syria.

The US however insist a "deconfliction channel" with Russian Federation continues to operate, details of which remain secret.
