UK, US and France bid for ceasefire in Syria after airstrikes

UK, US and France bid for ceasefire in Syria after airstrikes

Haley told Fox News, "If Assad doesn't get it" after Saturday's barrage of 105 missiles fired by the U.S., Britain and France at three Syrian chemical weapons facilities, "it's going to hurt". Russia's ambassador to the United States said Moscow had warned that "such actions will not be left without consequences".

"This was not geared towards weakening Assad's conventional military capabilities", said Kamran Bokhari, a senior fellow with the Center for Global Policy in Washington. This shows that Syria's attackers are not united on intents and goal. They also called the attack an impediment to peace.

The Syrian government and its allies have absorbed a US-led attack, and the targeted sites were evacuated days ago thanks to a warning from Russian Federation, a senior official in a regional alliance that backs Damascus said. "Instead of weakening the government, it only made it stronger", he said.

Speaking to United States media yesterday, Ms Haley defended the air strikes, warning that if action had not been taken, the USA could also become a target of chemical attacks.

Assad's allies, including Iran and Lebanon's Hezbollah group, also condemned the strikes. However, according to the Arms Control Association, on September 10 of that year, "the OPCW confirmed that chlorine gas is being used in Syria".

Russian Federation denounced the attacks as aggression against its ally, but there was no sign of an immediate military response.

Since 2015, Syria has benefited from the support of Russian Federation under President Vladimir Putin.

Putin denounced "with the utmost firmness" the strikes which he described as "an act of aggression against a sovereign state which is at the forefront of the fight against terrorism".

University of Chicago political science professor Robert Pape doesn't think the airstrikes will make much difference and may put USA troops at risk for retaliation.

Here is the information the Western countries say they have about the suspected Syrian poison gas assault on Douma.

Now, that action is specifically prohibited by Facebook in the terms of service they have for app and quiz developers. For most users this would have come about if they had previously downloaded the "This is your digital life" app.

Speaking to the BBC, Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said that Western powers had no plans for further missile strikes, though they would assess their options if Damascus used chemical weapons again.

French authorities said the allies don't seek any military escalation, nor confrontation with Russian Federation.

In 2013, Trump vehemently bashed Obama for hinting about the military actions of the USA against Syria.

A commander in the regional military alliance that backs President Bashar al-Assad said sites hit also included an air base west of Damascus near the Lebanese border.

Assad is convinced his country would continue its development regardless of Western actions, Sablin said.

Syrian opposition and activists have criticized the Russian Federation deployment in the town, saying that evidence of chemical weapons' use might no longer be found. "We can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalized".

May will address Parliament - where she doesn't have a majority - next week.

Syria's Deputy Foreign Minister Fayssal Mikdad said Monday his country was ready to facilitate the OPCW team in any way to carry out its mission, the state-run SANA news agency reported, while Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov did not respond directly to CNN's question on whether Russian Federation had blocked the experts.

Next week, he is to become the first foreign leader to be hosted by Donald Trump on a state visit.
