US 'Acted Appropriately' with Syria Strikes

US 'Acted Appropriately' with Syria Strikes

President Trump's resolve and Israel's support remain unchanged.

Trump used the haunting political phrase "Mission Accomplished!" in a tweet Saturday morning to praise the "perfectly executed strike" against Syria.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday voiced his "total support" for US-led air strikes against Syria over its alleged use of chemical weapons. She says the USA was confident that they had "significantly degraded his ability to use chemical weapons ever again".

The report quotes Khamenei as calling the leaders of the United States, Britain and France - the countries that launched the attack - "criminals".

The official said that Israel received the warning between 12 and 24 hours before the attack was carried out. Iran is the key backer alongside Russian Federation of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, providing military advisors and "volunteer" ground forces.

She led the head-to-head count 3-1 before Sunday's match and won 21-18 23-21 in the high-pressure match that lasted an hour. Ashwini and Satwik had a poor day in the mixed doubles, losing their semi-final as well as the bronze medal playoff.

The U.S. notified Israel on Friday before it carried out missile strikes on Syrian targets, an Israeli official told Reuters. The Douma attack killed over 40 people, with hundreds wounded by exposure to chemical agents.

She acknowledged, however, that one of the goals of the strikes was to deter Syrian President Bashar Assad's government from using chemical weapons again.

Israel said on Friday that an Iranian drone shot down in February by its air force had been fitted with explosives intended.

General Joe Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the strikes hit targets related to Syria's chemical weapons program - a scientific research center near Damascus, a weapons storage facility west of Homs, and a third location nearby containing a command post and an equipment storage facility.

"Last year, [US] President [Donald] Trump made it clear that using chemical weapons crossed a red line. Tonight, under American leadership, the United States, France and the United Kingdom enforced that line", the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
