'Large part' of Syria's chemical arsenal destroyed in air strikes

Macron's office said he spoke by phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin expressing concern about the deterioration of the situation in Syria and calling for more dialogue with Moscow. After the bombing stopped the Syrian presidency posted on Twitter a video of Mr Assad, dressed in suit and tie, confidently strolling into work.

Hit among others were a scientific research facility in Damascus and Syrian army depots in the Homs area, state media said, and a Reuters witness said the Syrian capital was rocked by explosions as smoke rose into the sky. "Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military".

Pence says he's hopeful that Russian Federation and Iran will "once and for all abandon chemical weapons" against innocent civilians. The regime "slaughtered innocent civilians" in the recent attack, the president stated. "Mission Accomplished!" Trump said in a tweet today.

Defense Secretary James Mattis called the "atrocities inexcusable".

"Establishing this deterrent is a vital national security interest of the United States".

He said the latest attack was created to destroy the Syrian regime's ability to produce chemical weapons.

Its foreign ministry said: "We welcome this operation which has eased humanity's conscience in the face of the attack in Douma". "We have sent a clear message to Assad and his murderous lieutenants".

Global desk - The United States and its allies United Kingdom and France have carried out bomb attacks in Syria targeting multiple government establishments where chemical weapons facilities were allegedly developed.

The New York Times earlier reported that Trump's announcement would deal with Syria.

Trump spoke from the White House Friday night.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel welcomed the move and said the strikes were a "necessary and appropriate military intervention".

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation chief Jens Stoltenberg says Russia's obstruction course at the U.N. Security Council left NATO's U.S, British and French allies no option but to launch a missile attack on key Syrian installations.

The WHO, citing reports from health partners on the ground, also said that about 500 people went to the hospital showing signs of exposure to "toxic chemicals" in Douma.

"No amount of American blood or treasure can produce lasting peace and security in the Middle East", Trump said. "We look forward to the day when we can bring our warriors home", said Mr Trump, while announcing the attack. He stated, "We cannot purge the world of evil or act everywhere".

Clearly, a limited strike by the USA and its allies offers the best chance of limiting any retaliation. He said the fate of that region "lies in the hands of its own people".

One major concern the USA had was that the Syria strikes would prompt a direct confrontation between Washington and Moscow, whose relations have been spiraling downward. Assad and Russian Federation have denied roles in the attack.
