Donald Trump takes to Twitter after Syria airstrikes: 'Mission Accomplished!'

Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White defended Trump's victory lap at a Saturday briefing. They were very effective. "Chemical weapons have been prohibited for decades and we must enforce this prohibition". She says: "President Assad has an absolutely positive attitude, a good mood".

"We did not do any coordination with Russian Federation on these strikes, and neither did we pre-notify them", Marine General Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Friday night.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has condemned the overnight US-led missile attack on Syria and called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council, the Kremlin has said.

Calling for holding those responsible to account, it said "Malaysia joins the United Nations Secretary General in expressing our disappointment" at the failure of the UN Security Council to agree on a dedicated mechanism for handling the chemical weapons issue. The United States and its allies "were not going to let that stand", she said, adding that Mr. Trump had told her that the United States was "locked and loaded" and ready to strike again should Syria use banned weapons again.

She said that unlike the airstrikes carried out in April 2017 against Assad, when the U.S. targeted Syria's Shayrat Airbase in Homs in retaliation for a chemical attack on Khan Shaykhun, a town in the northwestern province of Idlib, the latest airstrikes were aimed at neutralizing chemical weapons research and development facilities. "They were the result of the Syrian regime's barbaric inhumanity".

"A plan for ending the crisis must be found, with a political solution".

Syria and Russian Federation deny that any chemical attack occurred and say the incident was staged by foreign intelligence services so it could be used as a pretext for military action against Assad.

The Pentagon says Syria launched 40 surface-to-air missiles in response to the coalition attack.

The allied attack set off a fierce worldwide debate about whether it was justified.

"I feel happy", Kassem Eid, 32, who survived the 2013 attack that killed as many as 1,300 Syrians, told Ana Cabrera on CNN from Washington.

The joint operation was in response to a suspected chemical attack in the city of Douma last week. White said she could not go into detail about that evidence.

Dunford said the first targeted was a scientific research center in the Damascus area. Syrian time, about 9 p.m. I support President Trump's limited action to target chemical weapons facilities and hold this brutal regime accountable.

The Syrian government has denied using chemical weapons, accusing Western powers of falsely accusing them to "prepare the ground for aggression" against the country.

The demonstrators questioned the real objective of the United States military operation. The West blamed Bashar Assad, as well as Russian Federation.

"Assad's commitment of atrocities using chemical weapons against innocent civilians can not be tolerated by civilized nations", said Rep. Newhouse. "This is not about intervening in a civil war".

French President Emmanuel Macron said in a statement that a target of the strike was the Syrian government's "clandestine chemical arsenal".
