Estonian reactions to US, French, British strikes against Syrian forces

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

Trump, while addressing the nation on Friday night, said the joint strike with France and the United Kingdom was now underway.

USA officials say Saturday's attack was created to avoid collapsing Assad's regime, which could provide an opportunity for the Islamic State or other radical groups involved in the civil war, or draw responses from Russian Federation or Iran, which are supporting the Assad regime.

President Trump said Saturday morning airstrikes in Syria overnight were "perfectly executed", hours after he announced the USA, United Kingdom and France launched precision missile strikes in Syria in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria last weekend.

Syrian state media reported that internal security forces had entered Douma on Saturday and that the town would be secured within hours.

Syria and Russian Federation have both denied using chemical weapons and said the claims were fabrications used to justify Western military action.

In Russia, an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, the strikes have been portrayed as a violation of global law and undermining Syria's chances of peace. "They are crimes of a monster instead", Trump said referring to Assad and his role in the chemical weapons attacks. "Russia must decide if it will continue down this dark path or if it will join with civilized nations as a force of stability and peace".

The assault was twice the size and hit two more targets than a strike Trump ordered past year against a Syrian military airfield.

"Again, we are being threatened".

The US was also anxious that the strikes would prompt a confrontation with Syria's biggest military ally: Russian Federation. "Insulting the President of Russian Federation is unacceptable and inadmissible", he added, an apparent reference to Trump's mention of President Vladimir Putin in his speech.

In the days before the mission, there was concern Russia's presence in Syria could spark an escalation or even direct confrontation with the U.S. "I heard the first strike, then the second, and I went out onto my balcony", she said.

"We hope that there will be no point of no return — that the USA and their allies will refrain from military action against a sovereign state", Nebenzia said, adding that "the danger of escalation is higher than simply Syria".

"The nations of Britain, France, and the United States of America have marshalled their righteous power against barbarism and brutality", President Donald Trump said in an address to the nation from the White House on Friday night.

It was evident early on that Trump was intent on taking action to punish the Syrian regime for its actions.

"The American, French and British aggression against Syria will fail", it said. We can not purge the world of evil or act everywhere there is tyranny. "Everybody's going to pay a price".

The missile strikes took place as a team of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is in Damascus to probe the alleged chemical incident in Douma last week.

She said: "This persistent pattern of behaviour must be stopped - not just to protect innocent people in Syria from the horrific deaths and casualties caused by chemical weapons but also because we can not allow the erosion of the global norm that prevents the use of these weapons".
