What we know about the Syria air strikes so far

May ready to bypass Parliament & approve UK military intervention in Syria – BBC

Last Saturday, it is believed that President Bashar al-Assad launched a brutal chemical gas attack against civilians in the town of Douma, which is near Damascus, the Syrian capital. Syrian television reported that a scientific research center had been hit.

- In response, the Russian embassy in the U.S. said it had warned that such actions would "not be left without consequences", adding that insulting President Vladimir Putin was "unacceptable and inadmissible".

In the aftermath of air strikes launched on Syrian soil by United States President Donald Trump, French foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has claimed that a "large part" of the Damascus government's arsenal "has been destroyed".

In a sign of mounting regional tensions, seven Iranians were killed in an air strike on a Syrian military base on Monday, which Iran said was carried out by Israel.

"There is a wider question on the future political solution for Syria and that is a matter that we will continue to pursue in diplomatic and political channels with our worldwide partners and allies", May said.

"Good souls will not be humiliated", Syria's presidency tweeted after airstrikes began.

They characterized this year's strikes as more significant than the one waged last year, saying double the number of weapons were used this time. Colonel-General Sergei Rudskoi on Saturday said Russian Federation may consider supplying S-300 missile systems to Syria.

"The objective of our actions tonight is to establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread, and use of chemical weapons", he added. Draped in government flags and blaring patriotic tunes, dozens of Syrians arrived on bicycles, on foot and in cars spray painted with the red, white, and black colours of the Syrian flag. "Russia strongly condemns the attack on Syria where Russian servicemen are helping the legitimate government in the war on terrorism", the president stressed. "It is not about regime change".

Andrea Constand testifies at Bill Cosby's retrial for the first time
Cosby lawyer Tom Mesereau is poring over inconsistencies in Constand's statements to police about the alleged assault. But those efforts went nowhere, Mesereau said, and Constand left Temple, returning to Canada broke and unemployed.

"In a powerful show of allied unity, we deployed 105 weapons against three targets that will significantly impact the Syrian regime's ability to develop, deploy and use chemical weapons in the future", Gen. "No other group could have carried this attack", May said.

The attack also drew criticism from many of Trump's most ardent supporters in the US.

They also noted that the United States is "not aware of any civilian casualties".

In his nationwide address, Trump stressed that he has no interest in a longtime fight with Syria.

The next morning, the White House announced Trump had scrapped a planned trip to South America to monitor the response to Syria - a decision Bolton argued for in his first days on the job.

"We look forward to the day when we can bring our warriors home".

- The only retaliatory action was some Syrian surface-to-air missile activity, the USA said. They are in eastern Syria, far from Damascus. "We can not allow the use of chemical weapons to become normalised within Syria, on the streets of the United Kingdom, or anywhere else in our world".
