Donald Trump says 'mission accomplished' on 'perfectly executed' strikes

There were numerous dead in an apparent air attack on an air base in northern Syria Saturday night - among them several Iranian officers, Arab media reports said Sunday.

Among the eight reported targets attacked were military bases, research institutes and chemical weapons storage facilities in Syria.

The media reports were contrasted with denials of the attack by supporters of the Syrian government.

Iran was outraged. "Iran is not Syria", Ali Shirazi, the military liaison for Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, warned last Thursday in a statement to the FARS news agency. The organization has previously determined that chemical weapons have been used in Syria.

Putin added Russian Federation would convene an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council in response.

The White House said it had overwhelming evidence that the Assad regime used chemical weapons and deployed sarin gas against Douma's civilian population.

A complaint was lodged at the Shalimar Bagh police station and the accused was arrested. The claim was rejected by the court.

Putin said Russian investigators have found no evidence of a chemical attack in Douma.

The European Union failed to agree on new sanctions against Iran on Monday amid Italy's opposition and fears that punishing Tehran for its missile program and regional role would not stop US President Donald Trump from abandoning a separate nuclear deal.

"Israel will receive the required responses sooner or later", he said, adding, "They can not take (such) an action and be exempt from punishment". "The United States, France and Britain proved their commitment to fight chemical warfare is not limited to just declarations".

The US and its European allies chose three targets instead of the single air base hit a year ago and used twice as many weapons.

The Wall Street Journal, citing sources familiar with the decision making process in United States administration, reported that Defence Secretary presented the White House with three military options: missile strikes on Syria's chemical-weapons capabilities, strikes on a wider set of targets, including suspected chemical-weapons research facilities and military command centres.
