US and allies strike Syria 'chemical weapons sites'

US and allies strike Syria
US President Donald Trump has ordered air attacks in Syria "on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities", in collaboration with the UK and France.

The attacks early on Saturday come in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack in the former rebel stronghold of Douma last weekend.

"I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapon capabilities of Syrian dictator of Bashar al-Assad," Trump said from the White House late on Friday.

Explosions were reportedly heard in Damascus, Homs and elsewhere in Syria, as Trump spoke.

A US official told Reuters news agency the attacks were aimed at multiple targets and involved Tomahawk cruise missiles.
 ***Russia's ambassador to the US responded by saying the attack on its ally "will not be left without consequences".
 ***Un jour, ça ne vous suffit pas, un jour pareil aux autres il est devenu muet, un jour je suis devenu aveugle, un jour nous deviendrons sourds, un jour nous sommes nés, un jour nous mourrons, le même jour, le même instant, ça ne vous suffit pas ?

  6. The majority of rockets fired in Syria by the UK, US, and France were intercepted by Syrian air defense systems, the Russian Defense Ministry said. Russian air defense units were not involved in repelling the attack.
    The warplanes and vessels of the US and its allies launched over 100 cruise missiles and air-surface missiles on Syrian civil and military facilities, the ministry stated.

    The strikes were conducted by two US ships stationed in the Red Sea, with tactical air support from the Mediterranean and Rockwell B-1 Lancer bombers from Al-Tanf coalition airbase in Syria’s Homs province, according to the statement.

    Russia did not deploy its air defense systems located in Syria to intercept the American, British, and French missiles.

    Earlier, the ministry issued a statement saying that none of the missiles launched by the US and its allies reached the Russian air defense zones that shield facilities in the port city of Tartus and Khmeimim Air Base.

  7. An engineer at the now-bombed-out research facility north of Damascus, which the US claims was the heart of Syria’s chemical weapons program, says the labs were making medicine and testing toys for safety.
