Syria conflict: Donald Trump defends 'mission accomplished', more Russian Federation sanctions coming

Syria conflict: Donald Trump defends 'mission accomplished', more Russian Federation sanctions coming

The announcement of new sanctions comes shortly after the US, Britain, and France conducted "precision strikes" in Syria on Friday in response to a suspected chemical weapons attack that reportedly killed dozens, many of them children, in the rebel-held Syrian town of Douma.

A sarin attack triggered Trump's decision past year to strike a Syrian air base.

Chlorine, in contrast, has been used more widely in Syria's conflict without past United States reprisals, and the chemical itself is far easier to find and weaponise, experts say.

The White House said Trump spoke to British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron later on April 14.

Nebenzya accused the United States, Britain, and France of "hooliganism" and of "demonstrating a blatant disregard for global law".

In a statement on Saturday, the IRGC said the trilateral military strike on Syrian government targets will strengthen the willpower of the anti-terror resistance elements and deepen the Syrian nation's hatred of the Western-Arab criminals.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump stated that he wants to get US troops out of Syria relatively soon, but that they would have to stay a little longer to helpfully defeat the Daesh terrorist group there.

"The strikes may convince (Russian President Vladimir) Putin to stop further use (of chemical weapons) by Assad as it remains clear we are pulling out of Syria".

The trilateral operations came with questionable legitimacy due to the lacking of proof that could show Syrian government behind the chemical attack, and has been widely criticized by Syria, Russia and Iran, among other nations.

Haley insisted in multiple interviews on Sunday that the US's actions against the Syrian regime and its supporters, which include Russian Federation, have been aggressive.


The Russian foreign ministry, however, accused the allies of acting when they did "to hamper the work of the OPCW inspectors".

Trump tweeted Mission Accomplished on Saturday after US, French and British warplanes and ships launched more than 100 missiles almost unopposed by Syrian air defenses.

The three countries launched their missiles even as the fact-finding team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons was in the Syrian capital and had been expected to head on Saturday to Douma.

Or perhaps there would need to be a series of violations, as was the case before April 7, prior to any U.S. action.

Barnes, who joined the protest, said he didn't believe that military attacks will solve the problem in Syria and viewed the USA military action as a disingenuous one.

French President Emmanuel Macron said France had joined the U.S. and United Kingdom because "we can not tolerate the recurring use of chemical weapons, which is an immediate danger for the Syrian people and our collective security".

"If anything, the opposite is true: By setting these red lines and devising very narrow punishments for violating them, we essentially communicate to the regime what our priorities are and also our threshold for risk and level of interest in the broader Syrian war", Itani said.

President Donald Trump is claiming victory after a US -led allied attack on Syria's chemical weapons program.

"The way to do that is through worldwide diplomacy and cooperation", said Mandel.
