SA condemns US, UK, French air strikes in Syria

Corbyn said May should remember she "is accountable to this Parliament, not to the whims of the US president.

So, it was mission accomplished", said White, the Pentagon spokeswoman. He added that he knew the media would "seize" on the phrase, but said it should be used often.

But Syria and its ally Russian Federation have sought to downplay the impact of the subsequent airstrikes, saying Syrian air defenses shot majority down.

The leaders of the 28 countries of the European Union issued a joint statement this morning saying that Bashar al-Assad's regime "bears the overwhelming responsibility for the catastrophic humanitarian situation and the suffering of the Syrian people", strongly condemning the latest suspected chemical weapons attack in Douma as "a grave breach of worldwide law and an affront to human decency".

The leader of Hezbollah, the Lebonon-based, Iranian-backed militant group, said the strikes have strained global relations and could totally "torpedo" United Nations peace talks in Geneva. Bush addressed sailors aboard a Navy ship in May 2003 alongside a "Mission Accomplished" banner, just weeks before it became apparent that Iraqis had organized an insurgency that would tie down USA forces for years.

On Sunday, Ms Haley made clear the United States would not be pulling troops out of Syria right away, saying USA involvement there "is not done".

"I'm not going to say that they are going to be unable to continue to conduct a chemical attack in the future", he said.

The US and France say they have evidence that poison gas was used in the April 7 attack in Douma, killing at least 40 people, and that Syrian President Bashar Assad's military was behind it.

The Syrian government and its ally Russian Federation have denied involvement in any such attack. Iran's Supreme Leader called the attack a crime and the country's Revolutionary Guard Corps said it gave "the resistance a more open hand", although it did not threaten to retaliate.

Although the White House and the Defense Department made it clear that they meant to pursue only the one strike unless Syria used chemical weapons again, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, underscored that the United States is "locked and loaded" in her statement on Saturday.

Tensions between the USA and Russian Federation have escalated in recent days over the conflict in Syria.

When asked on "Fox News Sunday" about "how our relationship with Russian Federation has changed this week", Haley said that relations are "very strained".

Officials have since presented a check for $30,000 to the owner of the Lukoil for selling the winning ticket. He declined to talk about his family or go into details about where they might go or if they'd move.

It's consistently called for a peaceful resolution of the conflict.

Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron and U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May released statements after the attack had begun, saying the missile strikes were focused on chemical weapons sites.

The attack was twice as big as one launched by America previous year, which failed to deter Mr Assad.

Another report, from the pro-Iranian Hezbollah militia, said that Syrian air defences had intercepted three missiles targeting Dumair military airport, north-east of the capital Damascus. As the missiles hit their targets and anti-aircraft guns lit up the sky, hundreds of people took to the streets of Damascus to protest the strike.

More than 100 missiles were fired on the Syrian regime in three separate blitzes aimed at chemical weapon sites in Damascus and the Homs area.

They now worry it will embolden Bashar Al-Assad, who could use other conventional weapons against them.

"There is broad based worldwide support for the action we have taken", she will say.

A Pentagon spokesperson told Reuters: "There is no U.S. military activity in that area at this time".

Haley also said the response by the Trump administration was "cumulative", taking into account not only the recent chemical weapons attack in Douma, but also other, smaller, attacks.

"It is the lack of approval by the U.N. Department for Safety and Security for OPCW experts to visit the site in Douma that is the problem", Ryabkov told reporters. In fact, Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said no additional attacks were planned.

"They've lost a lot of equipment, a lot of material, and it's gonna have a significant effect on them, so I think the words cripple and degrade are good accurate words", said General Frank McKenzie.
