Putin warns of global 'chaos' after US-led strike on Syria

Putin warns of global 'chaos' after US-led strike on Syria

The leaders will be expected to answer for their decision to join the U.S. in launching missiles at suspected chemical weapons sites in Syria, in an attempt to punish President Bashar al-Assad's regime for the alleged chemical attack.

The nighttime assault on Syria was carefully limited to minimize civilian casualties and avoid direct conflict with Russian Federation, but confusion arose over the extent to which Washington warned Moscow in advance.

Britain and France on Saturday joined the US-led missile strikes, which came a week after a deadly attack on the town of Douma where civilians were hit with chlorine and sarin according to the Western powers.

Russian Federation has several military bases and troops in Syria, and the U.S. said Friday that it did not coordinate with or notify Russian Federation of the strikes.

CBS News also went to an apparent bomb-making factory for rebels in the heart of Douma, where there were the makings of fins for mortars, and a bin of what appears to be homemade grenades.

"It is long overdue that this council condemns the Syrian government for its reign of chemical terror and demands global accountability of those responsible for these heinous acts", Ward added. The team arrived in Syria on Saturday. On Monday, they highlighted their military gains, as Syrian forces drove through Douma.

"Last night, the United States along with our British and French allies showed the world that the United States will not sit idly by while the Syrian regime uses chemical weapons to murder and maim its own people".

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov denied that Russia interfered with any evidence.

"I can guarantee that Russian Federation has not tampered with the site", Lavrov told the BBC on Monday. He said government officials met with the delegation several times to discuss cooperation.

Syria has in the past accused the West of politically manipulating the OPCW mission. As of March 2018, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights estimates that more than 500,000 people have been killed: The group estimates 353,900 deaths, including 106,000 civilians; 56,900 missing and presumed dead; and 100,000 undocumented deaths. The OPCW team does not have a mandate to assign blame for the attack.

As May and Macron face critics at home, their representatives to the United Nations will, with the U.S., push Monday for a resolution calling for an investigation into the alleged chemical weapons attack.

"For we can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised - either within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom or elsewhere".

Assad didn't comment on calls by the US State Department to declare alleged Syrian stockpiles of chemical weapons during the meeting.

Jens Stoltenberg said the strikes were a "clear message" to Assad, Russia and Iran that the use of chemical weapons is not acceptable and that the allies would not stand idle.

"The American (military) knows well that going toward a wide confrontation and a big operation against the regime and the army and the allied forces in Syria could not end, and any such confrontation would inflame the entire region", Nasrallah said.

Shouts of "Allah, Syria, and only Bashar", a reference to Assad, rang out.

The White House pushed back against Macron's comments about Trump's intentions for USA forces.

Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin will announce on Monday further economic sanctions on Russian Federation for supporting the Syrian regime. "Syria and Russian Federation need to stop the disinformation and allow unfettered access to the attack sites", she said.

The report comes a few days after the U.S., Britain and France conducted airstrikes targeting alleged chemical weapons facilities in Syria, in retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons attack that they blamed on the Syrian government.

The TV quotes an unnamed military official as saying on Tuesday that air defenses fired a number of missiles because of a false alarm, without providing more information.

Pentagon said in a statement that at least 58 missiles had struck Shayrat airbase in the western Syrian city of Homs.
