IDF: Iranian drone we downed was on armed sabotage mission

US marks 22 targets for strikes in response to chemical attack in Syria says specialist

On Friday night, the U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the U.S., the United Kingdom and France jointly launched strikes targeting the Assad regime's chemical weapons capabilities after a suspected chemical attack killed dozens outside of Damascus.

Khamenei has harshly responded to the Syrian operation of the West Coalition, APA reports.

Nasrallah said that the Iranians killed in the attack on Syria's T-4 air base were members of Iran's elite Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.

Stoltenberg said that the strike "will reduce the regime's ability to further attack the people of Syria with chemical weapons".

"The United States and its allies have no proof and, without even waiting for the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to take a position, have carried out this military attack", said Iran's foreign ministry in a statement.

Neither Washington nor Moscow want to see an escalation of the overall long-running conflict in Syria, say analysts.

They are 10 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham, and likely to miss out on a Champions League place. The only title we can win is the FA Cup so we go for that.

Iran's Foreign Ministry strongly condemned overnight missile attacks on Syria mounted by the U.S. and its allies and warned against the consequences of the raids in the Middle East and beyond.

Aware of the public's view of events in Syria and Lebanon, the regime is now being cautious about how it reacts, and about the news it feeds to the public, for fear of more demonstrations.

Despite Iran's claim that its presence in Syria is at the request of the official government, in fact it depends more on what Russian Federation wants.

President Donald Trump is set to address the nation Friday night amid anticipation of a retaliatory strike for an apparent Syrian chemical weapon attack last week. We thank them both.

Moments after President Donald Trump concluded his seven-minute broadcast Friday announcing the start of precision airstrikes on Syrian government facilities associated with the development of chemical weapons, loud explosions shook Damascus. He criticized the USA and its allies for launching the strike without waiting for inspectors from the global chemical weapons watchdog to visit the area.

Western countries have threatened to launch strikes on Assad's regime in retaliation for an alleged gas attack near Damascus in which dozens were killed, that was blamed by Western powers on the Syrian government.
