Putin predicts global 'chaos' if West hits Syria again

Putin predicts global 'chaos' if West hits Syria again

Although US President Donald Trump had declared: "Mission accomplished" after the strikes, US Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie at the Pentagon acknowledged that elements of the program remained and he could not guarantee that Syria would be unable to conduct a chemical attack in the future.

But she will say the UK joined the United States and France in co-ordinated strikes following the chemical weapons attack in Douma to "alleviate further humanitarian suffering". It also followed the purported use of chemical weapons there on April 7.

Mr Corbyn, who has warned of an escalation in a "proxy war" between the U.S. and Russian Federation, said he would only consider backing intervention in Syria with the support of the United Nations.

"But it was the world saying that we have had enough of the use of chemical weapons, the erosion of that taboo that has been in place for 100 years has gone too far under Bashar Assad", he said.

The United States is preparing to impose sanctions on Russian Federation for "covering up" the actions of the Assad regime.

Meanwhile, Russia says it will help secure visit of global chemical weapons inspectors to site of an alleged attack in Syria. State-run television showed images of an intercepted missile and called the attack an "aggression".

The attack on Douma, in which most experts say chlorine as well as an agent such as sarin were used, killed at least 40 people, according to local medics.

Both Syria, which denies any chemical use, and Russian Federation, which provides military support to the Syrian government, have reacted angrily to the action.

The bombings marked the biggest intervention by Western countries against Assad and ally Russian Federation.

Following weekend missile strikes on Syria by the US, France and Britain, Russia traded accusations with Western nations yesterday, dismissing as "a blatant lie" accusations that Moscow was hindering the investigation in Douma.

"There are certainly various asymmetric means through which Russia, Syria and Iran could respond inside Syria or outside", said Heller.

Theresa May grilled in United Kingdom parliament over Syria airstrikes
The US-led strikes were the biggest global attack on President Bashar al-Assad's regime since the start of Syria's seven-year war. According to reports, 19 of the US-launched missiles, which have never been fired before, are smarter and have a longer range.

Damascus sky lights up with service to air missile fire as the United States launches an attack on Syria targeting different parts of the Syrian capital Damascus, Syria, early Saturday. While President Donald Trump praised his military for a successful operation tweeting "Mission Accomplished", the Pentagon was quick to retort, that "this operation does not represent a change in United States policy", and that it was not an attempt to dethrone Assad or be involved in the Syrian civil war. "If al-Assad and his allies can weaken the SDF, they can crack the foundation of the USA military's planning for Syria".

Russian President Vladimir Putin said the military strikes violated the U.N. Charter and that if they continue, "it will inevitably entail chaos in global relations", according to a Kremlin statement on Sunday.

In an unusual move, the government says it will seek an emergency House of Commons debate on the airstrikes so legislators can have their say.

"It is reasonable to expect that Russian Federation will limit the ability of Israel to exercise a similar attack in the future", Etzion said, referring to the T-4 strike.

Israel has long warned it won't allow an Iranian and Hezbollah entrenchment in Syria that could target Israel, raising concern about direct conflict between the two enemies that could spiral into a regional war.
