Syrian Chemical Weapons Sites Before And After Missile Strikes

Britain France say they joined strikes on Syria

On Friday night, the United States, France and the United Kingdom launched strikes on a number of targets in Syria in response to the alleged chemical incident in the Damascus' suburb of Duma.

The attacks, launched in retaliation for a suspected poison gas attack a week ago, destroyed facilities in Homs and the Barzah Research Centre.

Others like Mandel agree that though, chemical weapons are heinous, Trump had other options to prevent Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad's regime from using them.

The bombings, hailed by US President Donald Trump as a success but denounced by Damascus and its allies as an act of aggression, marked the biggest intervention by Western countries against Assad and ally Russian Federation, whose foreign minister Sergei Lavrov called them "unacceptable and lawless".

The UK, France and the United States are pushing for an independent investigation into allegations that Syrian Government forces are using chemical weapons - a day after launching air strikes on the war-torn country.

The airstrike, which the USA military says was precise and targeted, aimed to knock out the Syrian government's ability to use chemical weapons. It is still unclear how effective the strikes will be against Syria's regime.

Russia, which is helping Assad fight rebel forces opposed to his rule, immediately condemned the strikes and called for an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council.

On Saturday Haley said that the US' guns are "locked and loaded", and that Washington will not hesitate to strike if a chemical attack in Syria takes place again.

The same people who sold you out? She kept his name on the lips of the people. "She was just a woman who dared to survive". After family rituals in the morning Madikizela Mandela's body was taken to the stadium draped in the national flag.

On Saturday, a team of United Nations chemical experts arrived in Syria to investigate whether Assad's government was responsible for the attack a week ago.

"When our president draws a red line, our president enforces a red line", she added.

Assad told his visitors that the U.S., Britain and France, which carried out the strikes, had waged a campaign of "lies and misinformation" against Russian Federation and Syria.

And, Syrians danced in the street as a show of defiance against the United States.

"I've been talking with them and seeing their messages on Facebook", said Mercho, "thank God they're all safe".

They quoted the legislators as saying Assad was in a "good mood" and accepted an invitation to visit the Siberian region of Khanty-Mansi. "This is going to set the Syrian chemical weapons program back for years", McKenzie said in a press briefing.

Saeed Saeed, head of the Institution for the Development of Pharmaceutical and Chemical Industries, said the center was previously used by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) but now works on pharmaceutical products.
