Putin: attack on Syria act of aggression

Vladimir Putin Donald Trump Theresa May and Emmanuel Macron

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on April 14 that the alliance "considers the use of chemical weapons unacceptable".

Syrian air defense forces targeted an Israeli F-16 fighter jet that was involved in the attack with over 25 anti-aircraft missiles. Russian Federation said that the Western powers "cynically" carried out military action hours before a team from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons was set to begin an investigation into the suspected chemical weapons attack in the town of Douma in Eastern Ghouta that sparked the intervention by the United States and its allies.

"These are not the actions of a man; they are crimes of a monster instead", Trump said during a televised address late Friday from the White House, blasting Assad. "Tonight, under American leadership, the United States, France and the United Kingdom enforced that line", the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

More: Russia just blamed Britain for Syria chemical attack.

Asked what US President Donald Trump's next step against the regime should be, he replied: "I think the big thing is we've got to be prepared to take more action if this behaviour continues on the part of the Syrians".

"Right now we have no additional strikes planned", he said.

However, Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said that one night of air strikes was not a substitute for a clear, comprehensive Syria strategy.

Meanwhile, Turkey on Saturday welcomed Western strikes targeting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime as an "appropriate response" in retaliation for a suspected chemical attack that left dozens dead. Officials also said the strike was larger than a similar attack on the Assad regime launched past year. Shortly thereafter, the Israeli Air Force retaliated by launching a large-scale attack near Damascus, destroying over 10 Iranian and Syrian targets.

Trump condemned Russian Federation and Iran for their ties to the regime, saying they are "most responsible for supporting, equipping and financing the criminal Assad regime".

It declined to comment on accusations by the Syrian and Russian governments that it was behind the T-4 strike.

Khamenei said on Twitter early Saturday the USA and its allies were committing a crime. All they are waiting for is the flame to ignite the negative backlash against the whole corrupt system of ayatollahs, and they hope that will be supplied by Trump's exit from the nuclear deal.
