Iran condemns US-led air strikes on Assad regime, warns of consequences

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.

Iran's Foreign Ministry on Saturday condemned the US-led attacks on Syria and said Washington and its allies would bear responsibility for the consequences in the region and beyond, state media said.

Russian Federation has requested a UN Security Council meeting over the recent airstrikes which targeted three chemical weapons research and production facilities in Syria during the early hours of Saturday.

The Jewish state has not commented on the attack, but the United States said that Israel had warned it about the attack beforehand. These are not the actions of a man.

Britain and France joined the United States in the strikes in a coordinated operation that was meant to show Western resolve in the face of what the leaders of the three nations called persistent violations of global law.

In response, the IAF fighter jets targeted Iranian sites in Syria.

A second USA official said targets were being carefully selected with the aim of damaging Assad's ability to conduct further gas attacks, while avoiding the risk of spreading poisonous fallout in civilian areas. "The American president, the French president and the British prime minister are criminals, they will gain nothing from it", he said.

While NATO has issued a strong statement of support for its three allies which launched a military strike against Syria over the suspected chemical attack of last weekend, the United Nations called for restraint.

The US president, who has tried to build good relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, had sharply critical words for both Russia and Iran, which have backed Assad's government.

"He adds ominously, "Hopefully someday we'll get along with Russian Federation, and maybe even Iran, but maybe not". She said speed was essential and that military action was in the national interest.

He reaffirmed Russia's view that a purported chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma that prompted the strike was a fake.

Israeli leaders have warned that they will not allow Iran to establish a permanent military presence near its border in Syria, where it could stage attacks.

"Syria continues to carry out murderous actions and to be a base for these and other actions, including by Iran, that puts its territory, forces and leadership in danger", the terse statement said.

"The attack this morning against Syria is a crime", he said.
